Open-box Panasonic S1 with S 24-105 f4 Macro OIS for $2399 [with 1-year warranty]

Are you dying to try out the new full-frame L system? Do you like saving money with open-box but still want the 1-year warranty? Do you want a “take pictures with” kit, so you can start shooting as soon as the battery charges and not deal with adapters and hacks and workarounds and manual focus and test charts and pin alignments and existential soul searching?

Well, you’ve found the right post!

For $2399, B&H Photo is offering the open-box Panasonic S1 with S 24-105mm f4 Macro OIS with free US shipping and a 1-year warranty.

This is $100 lower than the price of the new condition S1 body-only, while the new condition S1 with 24-105 kit goes for $1000 more ($3500). So by going open-box, it’s like getting the 24-105 lens for free. The lens on its own goes for $1300 new condition or $1038 used.

A macro and stabilized lens with constant aperture and versatile zoom range! Competitive but pricey says DXoMark, better than the Canon L 24-105 but below the Shiguma ART. Since you are not paying $1300 for it stand-alone (or +$1000 for the kit), it’s not as pricey! Sign me up!

Thur: Meh-a-thon, OnePlus 8, Benro, Etc

B&H Photo and Adorama are BACK!

At the start of business today, Monday April 5 in 2021 [yes, tonight is the NCAA Basketball Championship game and on paper this should be an exciting game with fast-paced teams that actually practice offense, unlike the Big 10 where basketball is really an extension of their top rated wrestling programs mixed in with rebounding drills], we have the return of both Adorama and B&H Photo. Any orders you had previously placed in the last few days are/will-be getting processed and shipped! They are back, so if you had been needing things to buy, you can now place regularly-processed orders!

On an unrelated note, big news today in the world of smartphones, as suspected/predicted for a while now, LG is now officially out of the smartphone business. Their #3 spot in the USA market was a little bit misleading because a lot of their sales were budget and prepaid phones where profit margins are razor thin. This decision will likely produce some good to great deals on existing LG phones, but keep in mind OS updates and support and warranty and such are gonna be matters of concern. Details and discussion of this via Techmeme

Sigma 16mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary for $319 [E]

Also part of the Adorama dailies is another lens, I’m creating a separate post because it gets very confusing to put two lens names in a blog-post name, especially if they are made by a different manufacturer.

The lens is the new condition Sigma 16mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporiaries going for $319 in Sony E… As the “DC” in the model name suggests, this is an APS-C lens…

The other options (M43rds, Canon EF-M, Leica L) are not part of the sale (they go for $400).

The Adorama daily deals refresh at 10am ET every day, so this is good until Saturday at 10am ET, but because of the Passover holiday, this offer may repeat again [this is only my speculation]…

Rokinon 16mm T2.2 Cinema [m43] for $179 [also: Profoto, Pelican, Etc]

My oh my! Adorama is starting the Passover Holiday daily deals with a DOUBLE LENS DAY!

+ Sigma 16mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary for $319 in Sony E

+ Pelican 1607 Protector Case with Pick N Pluck Foam for $312

+ Profoto Wide Lens for A1 Studio Light for $10

+ the refresh time for Adorama daily deals is always 10am ET, not midnight

+ because it’s the holiday season, some of the daily deals may renew every 24 hours; however, I am only speculating, I’m not sure they will renew or not; only time will tell [cue continent supergroup song]…

Among the Friday Best Buy daily deals we have a sale on Sunpak 12″ ring light kits, two options, $60 or $80… With the usual/customary Shutterfly coupon promo thing…

Note that this does not get automatic Chrome OS updates (expired July 2018) and has 2GB RAM and 16GB on-board (and microSD) and Exynos processor and full-size USB ports. This was my first Chromebook, and as of three years ago it was already struggling with some of the busier and more demanding websites especially when using multiple tabs. So this can be useful for uni-taskers, eg tech-averse person using it for email and one-page-at-a-time browsing, but anything more demanding, you are better off with newer models…
