These are sold by Woot, with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so you get Prime shipping (if a member). Limit 30 per lens per customer.

PS: the day-long main gold box deals are rarely teased ahead of time, so I usually can’t find them when I post the nightly Lightning Deals schedule post

UPDATE (6:29pm ET): post-title corrected, the Sony E version is $270, not $280 as the original blog-post title indicated.
