In new condition at authorized dealers, the lens goes for $1150 with 4% promotional rewards (around $46 in future purchases) at B&H Photo and Adorama.
In this case, video is not killing the radio or the M43rds star. Instead, it is giving it a discount 🙂
The new condition Tokina Cinema 11-16mm T3.0 lens, only in the Micro Four Thirds option, is on sale, for a limited time, for $799 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo where it also gets 4% promotional rewards (around $32 to spend in the future at B&H).
This is among the latest B&H Featured Sales.
PS: this is certified Tokina. In the preview version of this post I caught one mention of Tamron 🙂

The Canon M5 body only mirrorless camera goes for $929 at authorized dealers, some of which are offering free accessories with it, such as Adorama.
Or it can participate in the Pixma AMEX MIR promotions, such as B&H Photo where you can get the M5 body only along with the Pixma PRO 100 printer and its trusty SG-201 sidekick (50pk 13×19 inch photo paper) for $959 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card).
Or if you just want the Canon M5 body only kit, without freebies or printers, you can get it in manufacturer refurbished condition for $750 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the official Canon USA store.
Coming along with the Fuji X-E3 camera and its accessories, Fuji also revealed a new medium format prime lens, but also a new prime lens for their X-System!
The new Fuji 80mm f2.8 R LM OIS WR MACRO has a starting price of $1200 and it is available for pre-ordering at B&H Photo and Adorama.
This too has been added to the New Lenses of 2017 tracking page.
Mirrorless cameras just scored a goal, increasing their lead to 10-8! Fuji put in a new middlefielder that scored this goal [okay, time to abandon soccer/football analogies]…
Fuji has a new 24mp APS-C mirrorless camera in their X-System, it is part of the X-E series, it is the brand new X-E3, available in silver or black [but still not Raiders edition].
It will be available in three official kits as follows:
- BODY ONLY for $899
- with 23mm f2 for $1150
- with 18-55 for $1300
Pre-orders at the above prices are now accepted at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself where the release estimate is September 28 (2017).
Keep in mind though, estimates are only estimates until or unless the cameras start shipping.
This reinforces the three Fuji X-System lines of X-T, X-E, and X-A.
It also juxtapositions this new camera with the existing Fuji X-T1 with FREE 35mm f2 promotion, at the moment giving the X-T1 an advantage in terms of both a lower price and a free lens included with it. [check the Stock Status Tracker for all the X-T1 options].
The new condition Olympus 17mm f1.8 is down to $349 with free shipping in the black or silver color schemes at Adorama and Amazon itself and B&H Photo.
They get 4% promotional rewards at B&H and Adorama, and the usual 5% for Amazon Prime if paying with a Prime-branded credit card.
Thanks to one of our readers for the email alert on this lens!
And now we continue refreshing the Stock Status Tracker with some Fuji X-T2 body only action!
If you are comfortable with imported cameras with a warranty provided by the seller (not Fuji USA), you can get the new condition Fuji X-T2 in imported grey-market condition for $1450 by Deals All Year on eBay (99.8%, New Jersey).
On the other hand, if you prefer used cameras, you can get it in “Used – Excellent” condition for $1349 plus shipping (starts at $14, varies by zipcode) from Adorama which offers a 90-day warranty of their own and a 30-day return policy.
Meanwhile Cardinal Photo is offering it in “Used – Like New” condition for $1399 through Amazon Warehouse Deals. Not Prime eligible. The description says this is the X-T2 with 18-55 kit, with the 18-55 removed (and presumably sold separately).
Some sellers do this, by selling them separately, they can get a better price than selling the kit as is. This is because of the built-in discount of the official “with lens” kits. As long as sellers are upfront about it and are clear in the descriptions, giving people more options and more alternatives is good.
On the other hand, if you prefer a “take pictures with” kit, you can get the Olympus E-M5 (first generation) with the 12-50mm EZ lens in manufacturer refurbished condition for $450 with free shipping at the Get Olympus USA store with a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.
Contract that to getting the body only used starting at around $300 with a 180-day warranty through KEH ~ check our Used options post for more details.
This too surfaced while price-checking the Get Olympus Refurbished Refill (I think that’s a new official term now).
PS: I can’t post all 20+ new additions to the Get Olympus refurbished store, but if any others stand out in your opinion and would be of interest to other photographers, please let me know in the comments here or using the online contact form.
While price-checking the Get Olympus Refurbished Refill (I think that’s a new official term now), this alternative offer to the Get Olympus store surfaced…
… you can get the Olympus E-M5 body only in “Used – Excellent” condition starting at $289 plus shipping (under $10 for most zipcodes) at KEH Camera with a 180-day non-transferable warranty…
… you can get the Olympus E-M5 body only in “Used – Excellent Plus” condition for $329 plus shipping (starts at around $8 and varies by zipcode) at Adorama USED. Used products at Adorama come with a 90-day warranty covered by Adorama, and a 30-day return policy.
So when comparing used prices to other places, eg Amazon Warehouse Deals (AWD), keep in mind that most sellers at AWD offer zero warranty!
The refurbished options at the Olympus USA store have been reloaded!
Of prime time silver lens interest, the manufacturer refurbished Olympus 25mm f1.8 M.Zuiko goes for $230 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty. The black version goes for $300.
The refurbished options at the Olympus USA store have been reloaded! The item count has jumped from 18 to 39!
I will be going through them and posting individual posts for good deals, but since some of them sell-out quickly, I’m posting this alert, so you can jump in right away!
*** HOT DEAL ALERT ***
*** MORE COMING UP ***
PS: the Stock Status Tracker update is being postponed until I finish going through the reload of the Get Olympus store!
If, as an experienced photographer, you are looking for a “Take Pictures With” jump into the Fuji X-System, the Fuji X-T1 body only bundled with the FREE 35mm f2R WR Fuji lens now has picked up FREE accessories for the same price of $800 with free shipping at B&H Photo: a Watson extra battery, a 16GB Sandisk Ultra SDHC, and a Ruggard DSLR holster bag.
If you don’t need the extra accessories, for the same price, you can get it from B&H Photo with 4% promotional rewards. That’s about $32 to be spent in future purchases at B&H.
The X-T1 with 18-55 and 35/2 bundle, and the X-T1 Graphite with 35/2 remain in-stock at multiple retailers for $1200, but the body only bundle is only in-stock at B&H as of the time of writing.
For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker or the posts here for the free lens promotion.
As of 9/5/17 at 9:55pm ET recheck, the page for the refurbished Olympus E-PL7 body only is marked as Out Of Stock with the “Add To Cart” button gone. However, the page is not returning a 404, so your guess is as good as mine whether it will come back in a few hours or not…
A number of refurbished lenses are also available during this refurbished department of the GetOlympus store.

As of a 9/5/17 at 10pm ET recheck, this sold out and its product page is 404 (they remove the web pages when they sell out ~ it’s kinda annoying)…
This was part of the refill of the refurbished options at the Olympus USA store…
As of the time of writing, the manufacturer refurbished Olympus E-M10 II body only is in-stock and shipping for $300 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.
Keep in mind, that since the last time this was in-stock, Olympus announced the E-M10 III camera which goes for $650 body only or $800 with the 14-42mm EZ lens.
As of 9/6/17 re-check, this sold out and its product page is a 404…
This one was added after I posted the earlier GetOlympus store refills, and it’s another tempting price, it is the manufacturer refurbished Olympus 45mm f1.8 silver going for $200 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.
In new condition at authorized dealers this was on sale for $300 a few days ago, and now it is back to $400.

Olympus is running a trade-in promotion at B&H Photo and other dealers that give you a Trade-IN Bonus towards the purchase of select Olympus M43rds cameras and lenses.
Eligible cameras to purchase with this promotion are the E-M1 II, E-M5 II, PEN-F, and E-PL8. Nine Olympus M43rd Prime lenses are also eligible.
You will ALSO receive the trade-in value of the cameras you turn in for the trade-in promotion.
So, for example, if you are buying the Olympus E-M1 II body only through this promotion. The camera’s current price is $2000. If you participate in the trade-in promotion, you get a $300 off trade in-bonus discount. So you pay $1700 for the camera.
You will also receive the trade-in value of the camera you turn it. For example, if you trade-in an old beat-up DSLR, you may get a $100. If you trade-in a recent pristine DSLR, you may get a $500 value. The numbers I’m using here are strictly for example purposes, not based on current market prices!
When you click on the “Start your Trade-In” links over at the trade-in promotional page, you will see a list of eligible camera and lenses for this promotion.
Good news / bad news now. The Olympus E-M5 II body only free lens promotion expired BUT the price of the E-M5 II body only dropped from $999 to $899 at authorized dealers such as Amazon itself and B&H Photo and Adorama.
B&H and Adorama offer 4% promotional rewards. Amazon offers 5% as a statement credit for Prime members paying with either the Prime Store credit card or the Amazon Chase VISA.
The current iteration of the Panasonic M43rds Lenses Instant Savings promotion is ending on Saturday 9/2/17 night. Keep in mind B&H does not accept orders between Friday PM and Saturday PM, so make sure you factor that in if you are planning a last minute purchase.

In a matter of three days, the Mirrorless Cameras managed to not only score an equalizer, but take the lead 9-8 over DSLR cameras among the New Cameras of 2017. The one who gave the mirrorless cameras the lead is the brand new Olympus E-M10 Mark III, or Third of Its Name, now available for pre-ordering in two configurations, body only or with lens and bag.
Each combo is available in either silver or black, but so far, there’s no Raiders edition yet. With the Raiders moving in Vegas, the opportunities for Raiders merchandising are at an all time high [speculation].

+ E-M10 III with 14-42mm EZ lens and Olympus Case and 16GB SD card for $800 in silver or black at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself

The Sony a6300 with 16-50mm goes for $1000 in new condition at authorized Sony USA dealers who are bundling it with various free accessories such as Adorama and B&H Photo.
But if you are comfortable with new condition imported grey-market cameras with a 1-year seller warranty (instead of a Sony USA warranty), then off to the eBay Deals we go, where you can get the camera as mentioned in this paragraph for $830 with free shipping by 6ave’s eBay store (New Jersey, 98.9%).
For a refresher on mirrorless prices, check the July 2017 edition of the Mirrorless Price Charts.
PS: if you are eligible for this offer, don’t forget to first activate the 8% eBay Bucks promotion. This would be a serious rewards amount, that’s around $66 to spend in the future on eBay (through the eBay Bucks rewards program).
Canon is back with their renewed interest in their mirrorless system. They have a new camera, the M100, that will be available in two options.

With this announcement, mirrorless cameras “scored an equalizer”, making the score 8 vs 8 in DSLR vs Mirrorless among the New Cameras of 2017.
As of a 1:22pm ET recheck, this is sold out again. These go in and out of stock at the Get Olympus store in a rather frequent (and maddening to anyone wanting to buy them right away) fashion. You can check the Olympus Outlet store for future listings. I’m also monitoring these and will post new blog-posts when they are back in-stock…
These have to be in-stock otherwise you can’t buy them. If the page doesn’t have an “Add to Cart” button [see screenshot at the bottom of this post], you can’t buy them…

UPDATE 8/24/17 PM: the silver 45mm f1.8 goes went for $200 with free shipping, but it is currently out of stock and cannot be ordered and its product page is a 404 (the Olympus Store has the bad habit of yanking a page of a used item that runs out of stock).
At the Get Olympus store but if you are a fan of the PEN-F, the manufacturer refurbished silver PEN-F body is in-stock for $750 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty. Silver kills vampires, so you have to pay more for it 🙂

UPDATE 10:52am ET: as of this recheck of the Get Olympus USA store, the pages of those two aforementioned cameras are 404 (the page has been pulled down), which means we caught them on the way out, not the way in…
I am trying to check for these on a regular basis since the prices are definitely right, but obviously I’m not a Google bot 🙂
