Amazon Germany Prime Day deals include Zeiss Batis, Etc {Big Discounts for select Tamron Sony-Minolta A mount}

Amazon Germany Prime Day deals are well under-way and they include three groupings of camera and photo gear, which are chaotically organized ~ not by brand or camera type. They are too many to post individually, but here are some of them:
