Tamron 12-28mm f4 PRO APS-C for $199 [Canon]

It looks like Amazon has price-matched the B&H offer. As of the time of writing, you can get the new condition Tamron 12-28mm f4 PRO APS-C lens in the Canon mount for $199 with free shipping, sold and shipped by Amazon itself. Maximum three lenses per customer.

It is currently in “temporarily out of stock” status, so shipping date is up in the air, but you can lock the $199 price if you like it.

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

The new condition Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens bundled with some free accessories goes for $1100 at authorized dealers such as Adorama. But if you want to save a lot and you are comfortable with imported grey-market, then…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “QuickNDone” (99.9%) is offering the lens in new condition imported grey-market for $690 with free shipping in the Canon mount or the Nikon mount.

Limit five per mount per customer. Between them they sold over 800 units.

Warranty-wise, if you are buying in Canada, you get a 6-year Tamron Canada warranty. If you are buying elsewhere, you get the 1-year Tamron International warranty. So it’s a lot shorter than the Tamron USA warranty. That’s one of the reasons why the price is lower. They are a Canadian seller but the eBay listing says they ship from various locations in the USA.

Pre-order new iPX8 waterproof 7-inch Kindle Oasis e-reader with Audible for $250+

If you like to read everywhere you go, or you spend a lot of time in various shooting locations waiting and you want to make the most of the downtime, you may be interested in a brand new waterproof Kindle Oasis e-book reader with Audible (audiobook) support!

The default $250 model comes with 8GB of on-board storage (an increase from the previous models), Wifi-only, with Special Offers. Options that cost extra:

  • You can instead get 32GB of on-board storage (if you want to load it up with audiobooks) for +$30
  • you can remove the Special Offers for +$20 [you can remove these later as well for a one-time fee; they are not that bad unless you hate ads]
  • get the Wifi + Cellular for +$50; free cellular data for e-book purposes
  • you can select the various options using the Customize button on the product page

This is so tempting 🙂 Please feel free to send me one as part of our just-launched Secret Santa 🙂
