Last Call on Instant Savings Promotions from Canon, Fuji, Zeiss, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Sigma, Tamron

B&H Photo is having a last call on the current instant savings promotions as we get into 2020 and CES mania. Too many cameras and lenses to list individually. You can browse through the aforelinked page or filter it over there, or use the manufacturer-specific links below:

Well worth the extra $10 for the 32GB especially if you read books with lots of images, pictures, diagrams, etc. Or manga and graphic novels. This model supports Audible as well so you can load up your DRM’ed audiobooks on it as well… When sold on Woot, these come with a 90-day Woot warranty. The ones sold at Amazon as certified come with a 1-year warranty. Needless to say the price reflects the inclusion/exclusion of the longer warranty…

PS: I don’t have this model, I’m still at the refurbished Kindle Voyage… I would say e-readers were one of the most important technological developments of the last decade, especially if you like reading text-mostly books. They got me back into reading big time!
