Refurbished Canon 7D body w/1yr warranty for $600

Canon EF-M Adapter for EF/EF-S Lenses (White Box) for $32

The Canon EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF and EF-S Lenses, model 6098B002, is new condition as a White Box product, is offered for $32 by a couple of 3rd-party sellers with the order fulfilled by Amazon so it is eligible for free 2-day Prime shipping. Non-Prime members need an order of $35+ to get free shipping (three of these tiny AB camera cases will do it, currently $1.47 each).

White box is often used to describe situations when a lens or something else is removed from a kit or a bundle and sold separately. When a kit is significantly discounted, some retailers “break it” (aka the term “broken kit”), and sell, for example, the camera and lens separately for a slightly higher price.

PS: “broken kit” is a rather unfortunate term, how many consumers will get excited when they hear something they are about to buy described as “broken”? 🙂

Some of the cameras come with additional free accessories, while others are eligible for promotional rewards.

No coupon and no rebate needed. While this promotion is running (you will see it mentioned on the individual camera product pages), Adorama will include the free Audio Technica mic (and other eligible freebies) automatically.

Featured Nikon DSLR Gear Sale on eBay Deals (224 options)

eBay Deals has launched a new featured Nikon DSLR Gear sales promotion with a total of 224 items featured, with free shipping included. Due to time constraints I cannot go through all 224 items, so this is a DIY YMMV adventure if you are interested… Be sure to check product condition, authorized dealer status, seller reputation, etc. It is eBay, anything and everything goes 🙂

Sony Camera Instant Savings (E-mount, A-mount)

Sony has another round of instant savings promotions, combined with free accessories included by Adorama, and up to 4% promotional rewards, plus free NewLeaf spills/drops warranties for some models. You can find all the eligible cameras nicely organized at the Adorama website.

Check each individual camera’s product page to see what are the available offers. There are two places to check. Let’s use the Sony a6000 body only as our example. It currently goes for $450 and right above the price, you can see that it also comes bundled with a free 64GB Lexar Professional SDXC memory card.

But the offers don’t end there. Look for the hard to find “Ways to Save” section and open that, which will reveal the “Save up to $300.00 with bundle” option. Click on that, and it will take you to the a6000 bundles page. Check the left side there for the various promotions. In this case, you can optionally add the 55-210 for +$150, or add a 1yr New Leaf Spills/Drops warranty for FREE or get various hardware or software at a combined purchase discount.

Annotated screenshots of what to look for below, using the a6000 body only kit as our guinea pig (after the jump):

Imported Nikon 18-140mm f3.5-5.6G DX VR for $250

The new condition price of the Nikon 18-140mm f3.5-5.6G DX VR at authorized Nikon USA dealers of $500 is out of touch with reality – partly because this lens is bundled with select DSLR kits, and the prices want to nudge buyers towards the kits. Regardless, if you are comfortable with imported grey-market camera gear without a Nikon USA warranty…

… among the latest eBay Deals you can get the new condition grey-market imported Nikon 18-140mm f3.5-5.6G DX VR for $250 with free shipping with a limit of five per buyer from eBay seller “Peach Photo” (99.9%).

After our little “coffee lens break”, we are back at the eBay Deals with one more imported grey-market promotion, also from eBay seller “Get It Digital” (99.7%). They are offering both of the new new-condition imported grey-market Canon 5D S body only cameras on the same listing. The 5DS goes for $2700, while the 5DS R goes for $3350. You have to select under “Model”, below the listing title. Limit five per buyer. They do not come with a Canon USA warranty, but the eBay seller “Get It Digital” provides their own one year warranty to parallel the benefits.

The 5DS body only, at authorized Canon USA dealers, currently goes for $3700 with various freebies depending on each retailer, such Amazon (free Audio-Technica AT8024 camera-mount mic) or Adorama (2% rewards = $74~) or B&H Photo (2% rewards = $74~).

Yongnuo 50mm f1.8 (Canon EF) for $53 w/free s&h

Back in our time, when prime lenses were $50, we had to climb the hill backwards four times a day, in five feet of snow, with bone chilling howling winds, while the sun scorched at 130 degrees above.

Time to put back on those climbing-the-hill backwards boots, because you can now get a new condition 50mm prime for around $50. It is the new condition Yongnuo 50mm f1.8 lens (for Canon EF) offered for $53 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. It comes with a one year warranty even!

Imported Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens for $90

To the eBay Deals we go with a rare occurrence, a prime lens under $100. It is new condition, but it is imported (grey market). However, a basic 50mm f1.8 prime lens is a much lower risk than $5000 tilt-shift walking-on-eggshells lens, so it’s up to you to enter your risk matrix and reach a decision.

Mumbling aside, this is a new condition imported grey-market Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens offered for $90 with free shipping with a limit of five per buyer by eBay seller “Red Tag Camera” (99.9%). Over 2400 units have been sold so far from this listing.

At B&H and Ado, you also earn 2% promotional rewards (= $40~)

PS: one of the potential benefits of buying from an authorized Nikon dealer is that you are eligible to participate in the combined purchase discounts – that’s if you also want to buy one or more lenses at the same time as the DSLR.

Save $1200 when Buy Pentax 645Z _and_ One Lens From Choice of 15 [two options are FREE after combo discount]

If you are interested in getting the Pentax 645Z medium format digital camera, Adorama has an “optical encouragement” for you. If you purchase the Pentax 645Z body only kit TOGETHER with ONE LENS from a list of 15 eligible 645 lenses, you will save $1200 on the total purchase amount. No coupon, no rebate, just add one of the lenses to the bundle and add the bundle to the shopping. You can only add ONE lens to this promotion – you cannot turn it into a money-maker fatwallet-style 🙂

There are two lenses in the lot that go for $1200 (or less), essentially making the lenses FREE (55/2.8, 200/4). The discount cannot be bigger than the price of the lens, so the $1100 lens is only a $1100 discount. The next lowest price lens of the lot is the 45mm f2.8 (645) which goes for $1300, so with the combined purchase discount, you are essentially getting it for $100.

This is a screenshot crop of the right side of the Adorama shopping cart after you add the 645Z and the 55/2.8 lens. You still have to press the green Add Bundle to Cart to proceed with the order…

The official Canon USA online store has a refurbished sale on select products. The sale prices are shown in red ink. These items come with a one year Canon warranty and pass a “comprehensive quality assurance inspection”.

+ select refurbished DSLR kits (multiple pages)

+ select refurbished SLR lenses (multiple pages)

+ refurbished Speedlite Flashes (four options in-stock, one sold out)

+ select refurbished Fixed Lens cameras (multiple pages)

+ time-permitting I will go through them later on, but I don’t want you to miss out any potential deals that sell out until I find time to go through them all (already a few of the red-ink items are sold out).
