Wednesday: Calumet, Lightdow, Usual Camera/Photo accessories

There are over 50 items listed in the Camera & Photo lightning deals (old format) or Full Page format (faster to navigate on Desktop) of the Amazon Gold Box. Due to time constraints I cannot create a detailed listing of them all. The usual assortment of accessories are running throughout the day.

NOTE: to simplify editing these daily round-ups, I am removing the text of expired lightning deals. It’s much faster than “expiring” the whole posts and such.

Imported Tamron 24-70 f2.8 Di VC USD for $690 [C/N]

The first generation new condition Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD goes for $1100 at authorized dealers which can include some free accessories such as Adorama.

But if you are a more adventurous shopper, then to the eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “QuickNDone” (99.9%) is offering the lens in new condition for $690 with free shipping in the Nikon system. Per the listing, the sale ends 9/20/17.

UPDATE: they also offer this in the Canon EF system for the same price.

Further down the product listing, under “Warranty” it says that you get either a 1-Year Tamron International warranty or a 6-Year Tamron Canada warranty, depending on location. They also offer a 30-day return policy.

This is a higher risk than buying in new condition from authorized Tamron USA dealers, that’s one of the reasons for the lower price. I believe “QuickNDone” is a Canadian seller.
