Refurbished Canons: 38+ DSLR kits and 97+ Lenses

There are so many refurbished sales at Canon I can’t process/post them all individually right now, so here is are the overview listing. I don’t know why they create so many listings, and I don’t know if there is complete or partial overlap between the categories. It is situations like these where it would really help if I was IBM’s Watson and could start 200 background process to sort it out!

+ 38 refurbished DSLR kits
+ 21 refurbished DSLR kit
+ nine refurbished DSLR kits

+ 97 refurbished lenses and flashes and such
+ 11 refurbished lenses
+ 7 refurbished lenses (some are EF-M)
+ 6 refurbished lenses
+ 3 refurbished lenses

YI M1 with 12-40 and 42.5/.18 for $349 [m43]

The YI 42.5mm f1.8 macro lens for $100 offer expired, but there is a new discount on the YI M1 two lens kit (with 12-40, 42.5mm f1.8) dropping from $379 to $350 in the black or silver color schemes. This is not a lightning deal. If you don’t need it immediately, since YI is a frequent participant in the Gold Box Lightning Deals, it may show up there at some point(s) during this Holiday shopping season. This is only speculation, I have no way of knowing either way ahead of time.

PS: but that’s not all, there are many Micro Four Thirds sales and more when Olympus unveils their Outlet store specials. As of the time of writing all the refurbished products are gone. Maybe they are saving them for Cyber Monday?

Adorama’s Best of Canon, Nikon and Sony

Adorama has created a nice visual page with their Best Canon, Nikon and Sony offers from the latest round of instant savings. This is very handy because I can’t find time to create summaries or even go through all the Instant Savings promotions of every manufacturer. For next Black Friday, I am definitely merging with IBM’s Watson 🙂

Full frame parties 🙂 This went for $1000 a couple of weeks ago when I posted the 35mm Full Frame Camera Price Charts.

At B&H and Adorama you get $4 promotional rewards as well, while at Amazon you get a $5 statement credit if you pay with Prime VISA or Discover with activated Q4 rewards.

The lens is not on the list of the Olympus Black Friday lenses but since these start on Thursday, you may want to add it to your shopping cart and wait until the Black Friday Olympus deals go live in case it gets discounted. It is unusual for a “just released” professional tier product to get discounted, but Thursday is just 11 hours away in the Eastern Time Zone 🙂

Olympus posts Black Friday Preview (Sales Begin Thursday)

SPOILER ALERT! If you don’t want to be spoiled about the Olympus Black Friday deals that begin Thursday 11/23/17, do not check the Olympus Black Friday preview. The sale prices go live tomorrow (Thursday). These are the new condition cameras and lenses sold at various authorized Olympus dealers.

Refurbished Canon EF-M IS STM Lenses with 1-YR W: 55-200 or 15-45 for $150, 18-150 w/hood for $280

There are so many things to post, so in order to save in the number of posts posted, I am grouping all the refurbished Canon EF-M sales from the official Canon USA outlet with a 1-year warranty into a single post:

+ refurbished EF-M 18-150mm f3.5-6.3 IS STM in black with FREE Lens Hood EW-60F for $280
++ in new condition at authorized dealers it is $500, eg Adorama (with freebies)

+ refurbished EF-M 15-45mm f3.5-6.3 IS STM for $150
++ in new condition at authorized dealers it is $300, eg Adorama (with freebies)

+ refurbished EF-M 55-200 f4.5-6.3 IS STM for $150 in black or silver
++ in new condition at authorized dealers it is $350, eg Adorama (with freebies)

Sony a7R II Body with One Serious Freebie (choices LR6, 4TB HDD, Creative Cloud, Tascam Mic) for $2398

The Sony a7r II was going for $2900 when I posted the Mirrorless Price Charts two weeks ago, but the combination of the impending release of the a7r III and the various Instant Savings offers have dropped its price down to $2400 and that’s not all, you also get free items with purchase!

At B&H Photo, you have a choice of serious freebies: either a 4TB WD MyPassport External HDD or a free 1-Year Photographer Creative Cloud subscription.

At Adorama you have a choice of freebies as well, either Lightroom 6 software or Tascam DR-10S Mic or the customary bundle of photo accessories.

Amazon is stingy on the freebies (none) but if you pay for it with a Prime VISA you will get 5% as a statement credit (that’s $120).

Imported Panasonic GH5 body w/1-YR seller warranty for $1500

One of the cameras teased in the eBay BF Ads [see BF Ads Digest mega-post] is the Panasonic GH5 body only for $1500, and I think I’ve found that offer. As expected, it is imported/grey-market, offered in new condition by 6ave’s eBay store with a limit of up to three per buyer. It comes with a 1-year seller warranty.

This is a $50 drop since the last time I updated the Stock Status Tracker where the same seller offered it for $1550. The new condition price at authorized dealers remains $2000 (thank you MAP pricing).

BUT another option emerged now, KEH Camera has limited supplies in USED “LN-” (Like New Minus) condition for $1829 plus shipping. And if you buy before 12/31/17, you get a 365-warranty from KEH Camera instead of the usual 180-day. Definitely better to have a KEH warranty than an eBay seller warranty 🙂

eBay reveals Cameras in their BF Ad – most likely imported/grey-market

eBay has revealed their eight page Black Friday ad and it has about half a dozen digital cameras in it. The eBay ad however does not specify the seller of the camera, the warranty situation, or the condition of the product, so that’s a mystery until the deal goes live. Judging by the prices, it looks like most of them are probably going to be imported/grey-market. About half of them are 35mm full frame cameras.

We integrated eBay’s offers in the Black Friday 2017 Ads Digest. You can find all the eBay additions by using your browser’s search function looking for “eBay” (not case sensitive).

I will price-check and dig around on eBay to see if these are already live.

Pre-order new Leica CL mirrorless and 18mm f2.8 lens

It’s the November surprise! Leica has a new APS-C mirrorless camera out, it is the brand new CL, and Leica is boldly going with this one, it’s USB-C time! It has a 24mp APS-C (rhymes with USB-C) CMOS sensor and has the Leica L-mount, so you can use TL and SL lenses with it. And that’s before you start using adapters.

It is available for pre-order in these configurations:

+ CL body for $2800 at B&H Photo

+ CL with 18mm f2.8 for $3800 at B&H Photo

+ CL with Vario-Elmar-T 18-56mm f3.5-5.6 ASPH Lens at B&H Photo

Wait, what’s that 18mm f2.8 lens? That’s a brand new lens that came out at the same time, it is the Leica Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 ASPH L-mount APS-C format lens, and it is available for pre-order for $1300 in black or silver at B&H Photo.

These have been added to the New Cameras and Lenses of 2017. This new announcement furthered the Mirrorless lead over DSLRs in 2017 to an insurmountable 13-8.

PS: the Leica zoom lens (!?!@?#!@#?!@!) is not a brand new one. It’s been around for a a while

Reminder: Sony a7r III expected November 30 for $3200

Reminder, lost in the Black Friday madness: the new deputy of the Sony E-system, coming in at $3200 [see Mirrorless Price Charts], the Sony a7r III is scheduled to be released on Thursday November 30 in 2017 with pre-orders accepted at Amazon by Amazon actual and Adorama and B&H Photo.

I will integrate it in the Stock Status Tracker after Cyber Monday madness cools off.

If you are not mesmerized by the a7r III or its starting price, there are sales on the a7S II, for $2500 you can get it with the Rokinon 35/2.8 FE or for $2400 you can get the a7S II body only.

Refurbished Olympus 8mm f1.8 fisheye [m43] for $660

We don’t want fans of fisheye lenses to feel left out, so here we go! The new condition Olympus 8mm f1.8 ED Fisheye PRO lens goes for $900 in new condition at authorized dealers such as Amazon itself and B&H Photo but if you want to save $240 on the price…

… then to the refilled Olympus Outlet store we go where they offer this lens in manufacturer refurbished condition for $660 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus warranty.

Refurbished Olympus 25mm f1.8 for $200 [m43]

The Olympus 25mm f1.8 lens goes for $300 in new condition at authorized dealers such as Adorama and Amazon itself, but if you are comfortable with manufacturer refurbished, the lens is back at the just refilled Olympus USA Outlet Store as follows:

+ Black 25mm f1.8 for $200
+ Silver 25mm f1.8 for $230

Refurbished Olympus PEN-F for $700

Some people use pens to write with ink, others use them to write with light. If you are of the latter persuasion, the manufacturer refurbished Olympus PEN-F (black) is back in-stock for $700 with free shipping and a 90-day USA warranty at the Olympus USA Outlet Store.

At the moment, in new condition at authorized dealers it goes for $1000, such as B&H Photo and Amazon itself.

Refurbished Olympus 17mm f2.8 [m43] for $90

Let them have pancake lenses said Marie Photographette! And the Olympus USA Outlet Store obeyed the order…

… the manufacturer refurbished Olympus M.Zuiko Lens 17mm f2.8 (Silver) is back in-stock for $90. Free shipping or flat $5 if the order total is under $100, I don’t remember. It comes with a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.

This lens is no longer available in new condition. The most reputable dealer carrying right now is used at KEH Camera for $159+

Refurbished Olympus E-M10 II Body Only for $300

The manufacturer refurbished Olympus E-M10 II body only (second generation) is now in-stock and ready to ship for $300 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty as part of the Olympus USA Outlet Store refill. It is in-stock as of the time of writing…

In new condition, this goes for $550 at authorized dealers such as Adorama and B&H Photo and $650 with the 14-42 or $750 with the 12-50. This was the price of the body only two weeks ago as well when I posted the Mirrorless Price Charts.

If you prefer the refurbished E-M10 II with the 14-42mm EZ, it goes for $430 in black or silver at the Olympus Outlet store, which is exactly the price of the refurbished 14-42mm EZ lens on its own. So if you go refurbished, the delta between the body only and the “with 14-42 EZ” is +$150, while in new condition is +$100. In other words, if you don’t feel compelled to have the 14-42 EZ lens, you can also look into getting a different lens, for example, a $90 pancake.

Refurbished Olympus E-M10 Body Only for $200

The manufacturer refurbished Olympus E-M10 body only (first generation) is now in-stock and ready to ship for $200 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty as part of the Olympus USA Outlet Store refill. It is in-stock as fo the time of writing…

The first generation Olympus E-M10 is no longer available in new condition at authorized dealers. Olympus already revealed the third generation (E-M10 III), one among the 12 new mirrorless new cameras of 2017.

This is a breaking news alert! The Olympus USA Outlet Store has been refilled! Thirteen new items have been added since I checked earlier today!

You can find some of the highlights broken down individually under the Olympus category

Sony a6500 with 16-50mm and Sigma 30/1.4 DC DN for $1469

The Sony a6500 dropped to $1200 body only or $1300 with the 16-50mm as part of this week’s Instant Savings madness.

BUT IF you want to buy the Sony a6500 with 16-50mm kit and a prime lens too, more specifically the Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN (E-mount of course), you get them together as a bundle for $1469 at BuyDIG.com. Just add to cart and proceed to checkout. No coupons, no rebates.

Pay $50 more to get either the Canon EVF-DC1 or Mount Adapter Together with Canon M6 Kit Purchaase

The Canon M6 dropped $100 since we posted the Mirrorless Price Charts, currently going for $680 body only and $800 with 15-45 at authorized dealers such as Amazon and Adorama.

But the official Canon USA outlet store has two optional combined purchase discounts on the new condition Canon M6 kits (not the refurbished). Thanks to a combined purchase discount, you can get either the EVF-DC1 for $50 more or the Mount Adapter (EF/S lenses to EF-M bodies) for $50 more. I don’t know if you can get both discounts if you add them all to your shopping cart.

Canon M100 with 15-45mm and EF-EOS M Mount Adapter (EF/EF-S lenses on EF-M bodies) for $550

And now to the Canon mirrorless system we go. The new condition Canon M100 with 15-45mm goes for $500 with some free accessories at authorized dealers such as Adorama.

However, if you also want to buy the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS M together with the camera, the official Canon USA store’s Pre-Black Friday sale has a promotion that gets you a $150 off combined purchase discount if you buy together in the same shopping cart:

+ new condition Canon M100 with 15-45mm
+ new condition Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS M (allows Canon EF or EF-S lenses to be mounted on EF-M mirrorless cameras)

This offer is mentioned on the product pages of both eligible cameras and the Mount Adapter.

The price math is this: $500 + $200 – $150 = $550 total.

Sony a6500 body only drops to $1200 [corrected]

CORRECTION 11/20/17 the blog post title originally said $1100 instead of $1200. Those sneaky $1199 prices still trick me 🙁

The Sony a6500 body went for $1500 a couple of weeks ago when I posted the Mirrorless Price Charts but as of today’s massive Instant Savings madness, it is now down to $1200 with free shipping at authorized dealers as follows:
