Welcome to CHEAP, our series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP!

When it comes to photography, I’m obsessed with framing and symmetry. I always strive to nail the composition straight from the camera, but it never hurts to have some extra pixels in case I need to do some cropping. That’s why there’s a special place in my heart for cameras with large sensors – like Sony‘s 42-megapixel A7R III.

If you’re familiar with the conundrum I’m describing, you’d be glad know that eBay currently has a stellar 42-percent discount on the A7R III. You can grab one for just $2,299 – down from its original price of $3,999.

For that amount, you’ll get the camera body, a battery pack, a charger, and a lens hood.

Really though, no matter what type of photography you’re into, you can’t go wrong with this camera. Here’s why:

  • It comes with a 42.4-megapixel sensor which supports a max resolution of 7,952×5,304 pixels
  • It’s a full-frame sensor, which means you can expect stunning depth of field
  • It offers excellent video and still image quality
  • It has built-in image stabilization
  • It’s weather-sealed which means you won’t have to worry about taking it out in the rain
  • The body is a lot more compact than your average DSLR

Although this particular deal comes without a lens kit, the good thing is that you can use the some of the money you’d be saving with this discount to buy yourself a lens that suits your needs (or several if you want more versatility).

In the meantime, go pick up the A7R III for just $2,299 from eBay from this link. And hurry up – there are only eight units left, according to the listing.
