Tokina Cinema 11-16 T3.0 for $799 [M43]

Micro Four Thirds photographers pay $50 more for the Rokinon Cine T1.5 prime bundle but if you prefer a zoom Cine lens, M43rds is the only system getting this discount, you can get the Tokina Cinema 11-16mm T3.0 for $799 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. You also get 4% promotional rewards ($32~ to be spent in future B&H purchases). Offer ends 4/27/17.

PS: this is certified to be Tokina (I often mistype/confuse Tamron with Tokina, both six letter names starting with a T and sharing four out of their six scrabble squares).

Rokinon T1.5 Cine DS Prime (24, 35, 50, 85) Bundle for $1749 [C/N/E]

More B&H NAB 2017 action, it’s a 4-pack of Rokinon T1.5 Cine DS prime lenses, the 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm are on sale, together as a bundle at B&H Photo for $1749 with free expedited shipping in the Canon, Nikon and Sony E systems. M43rds photographers pay $50 more for this bundle. Offer ends 4/27/17.

These should not be confused with the Rokinon 20mm T1.9 which is a Tuesday daily deal.

50% off BorrowLenses memberships w/coupon

Good until 5/8/17, BorrowLenses is offering 50% off on their three membership plans with the coupon code shown below in the self-explanatory screenshot below:

Annual memberships existed for a long time, with Costco, Sam’s Club, Price Club and others offering them through the years, but the emergence of Amazon Prime made memberships sexy again, with more retailers joining the party including NewEgg, Adorama, Walmart (pre-Jet), and even services like ShopRunner (you may be eligible for a free membership for this through your AMEX credit card). So depending on how much and how you often you rent from BL, this offer maybe beneficial. Of course the free shipping will likely have the Prime-effect, where you will be more likely to borrow things because of the free shipping. That new tilt-shift lens looks tempting 🙂

Sunpak 6601UT Tripod with 3-Way Panhead, Bubble Level and Quick-Release for $25 w/FS

The Sunpak 6601UT 620-060 Tripod with 3-Way Panhead, Bubble Level and Quick-Release is on sale for the next few days for $25 with free shipping at NewEgg by NewEgg actual as one of their non-shellshocker daily deals. Free shipping is the key here.

But if you are planning to place a B&H Photo order of $49+, you can get this with free shipping, and the B&H Photo price is $21.54 with a free Sunpak medium tripod case included by B&H for free. If your B&H order total is under $49, you have to pay shipping for it, and tripods are too big for USPS First Class Mail or standard Priority Mail boxes 🙂
