Used LensCoat for Canon 500 f4 IS II for $52

A mini dive into the Amazon Warehouse Deals fishes out a lens accessory. The “digital camo” color scheme of the LensCoat LC5002DC made for the Canon 500 f/4 IS II lens is available in “Used – Like New” condition (damaged original packaging) for $51.79 with free shipping.

PS: a description of “Used – Like New” condition (damaged original packaging)” is usually a good sign at Amazon Warehouse Deals, but as always, each used purchase is an individual transaction, it’s like a box of chocolates, so there’s always a higher risk than buying new condition.

Fuji X-T20 kits drop $100 (Body for $799, Etc)

As part of the new Fuji Instant Savings, the Fuji X-T20 camera is down by $100, with the Body Only going for $799, the X-T2 with 16-50 going for $899, and the X-T2 with 18-55mm going for $1100.

Adorama has a super bundle but it remains at $1199 and includes the Fuji X-T20 with 16-50 and 50-230 and Fuji hand grip and Lowepro 140 and 16GB Sandisk Extreme and ProOptic filter kit, Corel software bundle, Lowepro lens case, and a few more lens-a-ccessories.

Used Fuji X100F drops to $1137 in either color

Despite the new Fuji Instant Savings, the Fuji X100F holds steady at $1300 in new condition at authorized dealers. If you are comfortable with USED condition though, the price has dropped to $1137~ in both colors, by Amazon Warehouse deals itself. Other 3rd-party sellers there have it for less but if you are not familiar with them, it’s a higher risk!

As of the time of writing, both the Used X100F black and the Used X100F silver go for $1137.

As usual, do pay attention to who the actual seller is. The price alone should not be the sole determining factor!

Now shipping: Pinnacle Studio 21 software

Adobe gets the lion share of the attention and the profits from the world of digital photo imaging but they are certainly not the only company making software out there. One of The Others has a new product release, the Pinnacle Studio 21 software is in-stock and shipping in a software box/disc by mail, going for $60 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself.

(ENDED) Sony a6500 body only drops to $1218

As of a 10/17/17 AM re-check, this sale is over; the camera is back to $1400…

A Clash of the Shopping Titans! The new condition Sony a6500 body only is currently on sale for the very specific price of $1218 with free shipping at Walmart by Walmart itself and also at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit three per customer).

Both places have open marketplaces, so make sure you pay attention to who the actual seller in the listings you are looking at is [such a tortured sentence!]. The new condition price at other dealers is $1400 (eg Adorama).
