With my a900 there was a 15% off coupon (required a web registration that did not work correctly - short battle with Sony ensued ... but at least they were responsive and fixed things.)

So ordered:

M- focus screen - should help with sharp focus in macro and other shallow DOF situations.  I just hope I won't have to switch screens often.

An LCD protector (though why Sony does not include this WITH THE CAMERA is a mystery to me.  It's about $0.50 to manufacture but $24.95 in the store.)

Triple connector for flashes.  As I shoot manual flash a lot, this should be useful with my 5400HS and 5600HS in the studio. 

I damn near ordered the 58AM as it is $450 ("discounted") but the additional 15% was not permitted.  Tempered myself for now.

Was tempted to get another battery, but will go 3rd party.

And then, with the above order they send a coupon for a further 10% off on more orders...

Very cool. :)

I got a triple connector after minolta sold to sony - got it for A$10 (about 3 pounds) but only recently got the cables to make it useful - looking forward to playing around with it all ;)

Gotta agree on the LCD protectors - they should be included. Oh well, at least the lens hoods are included with the lenses, unlike some other brands :D

Yes, its quite bad that theyre not included.
I only found out last week that as you mention, other brands dont supply the petal lens hoods, and at £55 on top of the £800+ you've just spent is really bad :-(
