Amazon Warehouse Deals Bargain Bin: Ever Ready SX-7XX Case for $4+; APE Metro for $10; Fotodiox T- to M43 for $5; Kenko, Etc

Amazon Warehouse Deals is where Amazon itself and 3rd-party sellers are offering used and refurbished products through the Amazon website. A new twist on the Warehouse Deals website is that Amazon has launched a Clearance Section for it, they call it the “Bargain Bin”, where items are further discounted. A total of 24 departments are participating at the moment.

When you drill down the categories on the left-hand side over there, under “Electronics” you will find a Camera and Photo sub-category that includes 57 items as of the time of writing.

Among them, sorted by price, in ascending order:

+ USED Kenko 49mm Pro Softon Type-A Multi-Coated Camera Lens Filter for $3.63

+ USED MegaGear “Ever Ready” Protective Leather Camera Case for Canon SX-7XX series of P&S cameras for $4+

The usual restrictions apply.

Free to Watch (with Ads): “The Invisible Wildlife Photographer” (2011)

And now, welcome to the Noisy Cinema Club 😉 Amazon has a variety of video options. One of the lesser known options is to watch some movies for FREE but with ads. One of these options is the The Invisible Wildlife Photographer (2011) (51 minutes; Bence Mate). It averages 4.7 out of 5 based on 5 customer reviews.

I added it to my Watch List but I haven’t watched it yet. We will discuss this movie at the next “Noisy Cinema Club”. Popcorn is included 🙂

PS: make sure you click on the “Free With Ads” button, not the Rent or Buy buttons that have a price on them.

In-Stock Now: Sigma 14mm f1.8 DG ART for $1599 [C/N/Si]

Good news if you are interested in the Sigma 14mm f1.8 DG ART HSM lens! All three versions of the lens (Canon, Nikon, Sigma SLR systems) are in-stock and ready to ship at its starting price of $1599 with free shipping at Adorama.

At B&H Photo, they have the Canon EF version in-stock for the same price.

At Amazon some 3rd-party sellers have some versions in some kits, for example, Cameta has the Canon EF version bundled with a handful of accessories going for the same price (ships directly from Cameta but Prime-members get Prime-like free delivery).

USED Zeiss 135mm f2 (Canon EF) for $900+

The sale of the new condition is also good news if you are interested in buying USED lenses from reputable dealers. The used version of the Zeiss 135mm f/2 Apo Sonnar T* ZE (Canon EF) is available for as low as $900 with free shipping in USED Condition 8+ at B&H Photo.

If you are not familiar with B&H Used pages, each individual listing page has detailed on the Condition, and further down the page, on the right side, under “In The Box” shows what’s included. Here’s an example, the aforementioned lens. Used items sold by B&H come with a 90-day warranty covered by B&H (not the manufacturer). Given some spotty service by some manufacturers on some products, this may actually be a plus 🙂

PS: the Nikon version is nowhere near as low, it starts at $1200+…

Zeiss 135mm f2 (Canon EF) with $52 rewards drops to $1299

This was on sale for $1499 last week, but if you are a Canon EF shooter, we have an even bigger discount for you! The Zeiss 135mm f/2 Apo Sonnar T* ZE Lens is down to $1299 with free expedited shipping (you don’t want a four-figure lens bouncing around in slow shipping) at B&H Photo along with 4% promotional rewards (around $52 to spend in the future at B&H). This is a limited time offer.

The Nikon F (ZF.2) remains at $1499.

Tuesday: Elements 15 (Pho and Prem combo) for $75, Epson WF3620 for $70, Moto Z PLAY for $350

To the eBay Deals we go where the Best Buy eBay store is offering the Photoshop Elements 15 & Premiere Elements 15 software for $75 with free shipping. This is delivered by mail, not a digital download. Limit one per customer during this limited time sale.

Speaking of Best Buy, they are offering the Epson WorkForce WF-3620 Wireless All-In-One Printer for $70 with free shipping or store pickup (where possible/available), and the unlocked Moto Z PLAY (first generation but the one with the giant battery) for $350, which has also been price-matched at Amazon. The “Z PLAY” phones are also compatible with the modular attachments (aka Moto Mods) such as the Hasselblad True Zoom (10X optical zoom).
