Olympus is running a Micro Four Thirds Combined Purchase Discount promotion at Amazon. You get a $200 combined purchase discount in the shopping cart if you buy ONE qualifying M43rds camera kit (from a choice of 30~) and one or more lenses (choices are 9-18, 12/2, 75/1.8, 12-40/2.8). This is stackable on the LENS side! You can buy one camera and all five eligible lenses and get five $200 off discounts! This is a limited time offer. An expiration date is not provided... If you are not familiar with how these work, we have an example at the main blog...
We just updated all the "frequently updated" cameras at the Stock Status site and we have a full house of in-stock! All cameras and lenses tracked are in-stock, including the four Nikon Df kits and the three Sony a7r and a7 kits and the Olympus 12-40/2.8 and E-M1 and the Panasonic GM1 and all four Fuji X-E2 kits and the Fuji X100S and the Ricoh GR (APS-C) as low as $700.
We just updated the Ricoh GR (APS-C) stock status page and surprise-surprise, the camera is at a new lower price! You can get it for $700 by a couple of third-party sellers at Amazon and for $710 by Popflash on eBay. If you are not comfortable at those two places, you can get it for $731 from Amazon itself and Gearshop... Research with Ricoh GR APS-C reviews list...
Down to $350 again it is for the Canon D-Rebel T3 w/18-55 and with two freebies at Amazon by Amazon itself. Optionally you can add the 75-300 lens for +$40 based on current prices...
The Panasonic M43rds Combined Purchase Discounts are good until 12/21/13 and they are not stackable and you must enter the promo codes shown over there in order to get the discounts. You buy one camera kit (GH3 or GX7) together in the same shopping cart as one lens (12-35/2.8 or 35-100/2.8 or 20/f1.7 II either color) and you get a $200 off combined purchase discount. The free accessories promotion is on the camera kits, you don't need to buy a lens in order to get the free Extreme and AB camera case.
The Canon SL1 with the 18-55mm kit lens and various free accessories is going for $540 at Amazon (free 16GB Extreme, holster; optionally add 75-300 for +$40) and B&H Photo... The SL1 body only continues for $450 with free extras at Amazon and Adorama and B&H Photo... Research with Canon SL1 reviews list...

We just launched (yes, we are tape-delayed these days) the Nikon Df Stock Status tracking page. As of the time of writing, according to the shopping carts of the various websites we track, all except for the black Df body only kit are in-stock at at least one retailer. You can also find it at the front page of the Stock Status site.
The Electronics Gift Guide Deal of the day at Amazon for Saturday Dec-7-2013 is the Sony Cybershot HX50V bundled with 16GB SDHC for $330 with free shipping. In this particular listing, the free memory card is bundled with the camera, you don't have to add it manually. Add to cart and both will be added as a bundle. You cannot separate them in the shopping cart. This should end by Sunday 3AM ET.
Through the years Amazon had taken various approaches to dealing with internal price-matching. It looks like these days Amazon's approach is to price-match their own price if it drops within seven days after your order is delivered. So, for example, you bought Nikon XYZ-40D on Monday 1/1 for $400. It gets delivered to you on Friday 1/5. On Wednesday 1/10 you notice the price is down to $350 at their website. You can then contact their customer support and ask for a refund of the difference.
NOTE: this only applies to items sold and shipped by Amazon itself (not marketplace or 3rd-party, or used or individual sellers).
At Staples brick and mortar stores, between Sunday December 8 until the close of business Saturday December 14 in 2013, you can get up a 50pk of Staples brand 8.5x11 inch double-sided matte photo paper for 1c after an online rebate. You pay $15 (plus tax if applicable) in-store. You use information from your cash register receipt to fill in the rebate form online (nothing to cut or mail-in) and after a few weeks you will receive $15 back in a prepaid VISA gift card. Sales-tax is not refunded. Limit 2 for the shopping week per household. You can use Staples Rewards to pay for these.
If you are looking for a Canon D-Rebel DSLR but don't want to break the bank on the newer T5i/T4i models, and don't want the more basic T3, the good old T3i with 18-55mm kit with a free 32GB Extreme SDHC and holster case is now down to $437 with free shipping and 2% promotional rewards at Amazon by Amazon herself... You don't have to buy it with the 75-300 or 55-250mm lenses, those are completely optional... This is not part of a lightning deal, so it can end at any point in time.
The floodgates have opened up for the Sony a7 and a7 w/28-70 kits, in-stock at multiple retailers for $1700 and $2000 respectively.
