Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG OS HSM Art for $999 [C/N]

Hundreds of products are participating in the B&H Photo BILD festivities as we mentioned earlier, and I can’t list or highlight them all, but I am highlighting three name-brand 3rd-party lenses, sadly only made for CaNiKoN. Thankfully adapters/converters/etc exist 🙂

We start with a classic pro zoom, the new condition Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG OS HSM Art going for $999 in your choice of Canon EF or Nikon F. This lens is not perfect [then what lens is?], but consider that you can buy TWO of these for the price of ONE Canon/Nikon-made option! Shiguma time, believe it!

Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 CF ATX-i for $299 [C/N]

Thanks to the advent of APS-C systems, you don’t have to spend big bucks to get an f2.8 zoom lens! Case in point, as part of the B&H BILD festivities ending Thursday night, you can have the new condition Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 CF ATX-i lens for $299 in your choice of Canon EF or Nikon F. Sadly this lens is not made for any other systems.

Sigma 85mm f1.4 DG HSM ART for $899 [C/N]

And how about a bright prime lens? Also part of the B&H Photo BILD festivities, you can get the new condition Sigma 85mm f1.4 DG HSM Art for $899 in your choice of Canon EF or Nikon F. The Sigma SA is not on sale. Sadly this lens is not made for any other systems. Offer ends Thursday night or earlier if sold out.

Wedn: B&H Daily Deals Go Wild with BILD Offerings including LENSES (54 options)!

ON THE LEARNINGS front, the headliner free-to-watch Creative LIVE ON-AIR class starting on Wednesday at 12pm eastern is “Posing 101: Couples, Weddings and Families” with well-known photographer Lindsay Adler, total runtime 5 hours and 24 hours, so it should repeat about 4 times throughout the free streaming window.

PS: for those not familiar, the free-streaming classes are like the old days of over-the-air TV – you can’t pause/rewind/etc/etc.

Starts Tuesday 12pm ET (FREE to Stream): 13-hour Wedding Photography class

TIMELINE CORRECTION: the date is 5, not 6!

Starting at 12pm eastern time on Tuesday September 5 in 2023, at the CreativeLIVE ON-AIR, the headliner free to watch class is “Wedding Photography” with Joe Buissink. The runtime is 12 hours and 50 minutes, so the class will air in full only once. The second airing will be incomplete as the 24-hour window will close.

Lesson #3 of the class is already free to stream if you want to watch ahead of time to see if the instructor’s style and level is something that interests you in watching the whole thing. Think of it as the “Kindle sample” equivalent 🙂

Tuesday: BILD Offerings, RotoLight NEO 3, Snypex, Tenba, SmallRIG, LeXaR CFxA, SmallHD, Etc

TIMELINE CORRECTION: the date is 5, not 6, the BILD 2-day Expo starts on Wednesday! So today is Day #0, not Day #1. As regular readers of this blog know, we are frequently unstuck in time because we don’t have a proper sonic screwdriver!

Today is Day #0 of the B&H 50 Year Anniversary BILD Expo sale-a-bration with a variety of offerings, too many to list here individually.

But we also have the regularly scheduled B&H Photo daily deals, only six in number, much easier to list here individually:

+ Tenba Cineluxe Video Shoulder Bag 16 for $116
+ Question of the Day: how many VHS tapes can you fit in a Video bag? 😉

+ SmallRIG Heavy-Duty Video Tripod, Fluid Head, and Dolly Kit for $149

+ SnyPEX 10×32 Knight D-ED Binoculars for $300
+ no, the ED in this case does not require a prescription

+ RotoLIGHT NEO 3 On-Camera RGBWW LED Light Ultimate Bundle for $369
+ because [all together now] you can’t have photo-graphy without light!

+ 320GB LEXAR Professional CFexpress Type A Card GOLD Series with Card Reader for $350
+ OR you can buy 100 32GB SD cards 😉

+ SmallHD 702 Touch 7″ On-Camera Monitor for $1299
+ OR you can buy 25 generic 7″ Android tablets
