Prime your wallets! The new Zeiss Batis 135mm f2.8 (Sony E-mount) lens is now in-stock and ready to ship for $2000 at B&H Photo and Adorama and various at Amazon.

Pre-order brand new Surface PRO Tablets ($800 to $2700; 4G LTE Cellular coming later)

Microsoft’s Panay said no new Surfaces a few weeks ago during the Microsoft Educational event, but that was then, this is now! Microsoft is taking a page of the iPad marketing book, and is releasing a new Surface tablet that simply has the name “Surface PRO”, not Surface 5 PRO. So it will probably become the “Surface PRO (2017)” model. Details and specs organized nicely at Techmeme.

The new Surface PRO is now available for pre-order at the official Microsoft store with prices starting at $800 and topping out at $2700. RAM options range from 4GB to 16GB, on-board storage ranges from 128GB to 1TB, processors range from m3 to i7. However, not all combinations are available, there are six pre-configurated models at the moment.

These will begin shipping in June 15 (2017). They are eligible for the 10% Academic discounts for people who qualify per Microsoft’s terms (there’s a link there to find out if you qualify ~ requires login).

If you are a fan of Cellular 4G LTE on your Surface devices, there is some hope! 4G LTE models are coming in the future. Dates and prices will be revealed in the future. Patience is a 2G virtue for this 4G LTE device 🙂

NOTE: the Surface PEN is NOT included with this new model (the 2017 model, aka the 5th generation).

VERKB Carrying Case for DJI Mavic Pro for $16

Some of today’s drones are small and portable and folding, which can make for smaller cases. One such is the VERKB Carrying Case currently on sale for $16, sold by the company with the order fulfilled by Amazon, so free 2-day shipping for Prime members. This is not a lightning deal, so I do not know the expiration date. It only has two customer reviews (both 5-stars). I am not sure what to make of gallery picture #3 that says “delicate fragrance” with air bubbles and mint leaves (?) flying in the air (!!!).
