They come with a 1-year Amazon warranty. This is the “previous generation”. The latest Kindles are the 10th generation which includes the Oasis 3. Neither uses USB-C. Once upon a time I knew this line-up by heart, now there’s way too many of them. Thankfully there’s a very nice Wackypedia page to sort them all out! I got started with the “Kindle Keyboard”, although I was ponderously pondering the 9.7-inch Kindle DX before that…

Sigma Lens Instant Savings (74 options)

Shiguma time! If you are a fan of their lenses, DSLR or mirrorless, prime or zoom, APS-C or full frame or other-frame, B&H Photo is hosting an Instant Savings promotion with 74 options with prices ranging from $149 (lens mounts) to $289 (30/1.4 DC DN) all the way up to $1849 for the weightlifter’s favorite (150-600mm f5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sporty-Spice)

Pre-order the new Sigma I-series compact mirrorless lenses (E/L)

Shiguma strikes again with a new line-up of lenses, the I-series. These are mirrorless-exclusive full-frame compact-priority lenses and they are coming out for the Sony E and Leica L 35mm-full-frame mirrorless systems. The three lenses are:

+ 24mm f3.5 DG DN for $549
+ 35mm f2 DG DN for $639
+ 65mm f2 DG DN for $699

Initially at least, the prices are the same, there is no “Leica tax”. Of course prices can change over time, eg the E-system lenses getting discounted but not the Leica [pure speculation of course].

You can preorder these lenses at B&H Photo and Adorama

Read more about them at the B&H Explora which includes hands-on impressions and sample pictures…

Sigma Lenses Instant Savings (74 options, C/N/E/K/A/SA/L/m43)

Sigma is participating in the Black Friday festivities with an Instant Savings promotion that includes 74 options. While it may sound like a lot, keep in mind that Sigma makes lenses for various camera systems, and each one is a separate listing. There’s also some mount adapters and flashes too. Oh, and a couple of dp-series Quattro Big Sensor Primes!

Most of the lenses get either one or two freebies. The freebies are mainly a Sigma USB Dock or some filter kit (Sigma or Tiffen or other ~ partially depending on the price of the lens)…

There are options for Canon EF and EF-M, and Nikon F, and Sony E, and M43rds and Pentax K and Sony A and Sigma SA and Leica L too!

There are too many options to list here individually, here are some examples:

+ Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 EX DC OS HSM for $369 in C/N/K/A

+ Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 DG OS HSM Sporty Spice for $1339 with FREE USB Sigma Dock and B+W 82mm filter in C/N/SA

+ Sigma 85mm f1.4 DG HSM Art for $1049 with FREE Sigma USB Dock and B&W 86mm filter in C/N/SA

Sigma 50mm f1.4 DG HSM Art with FREE Vanguard Alta Pro 264AT Tripod and TBH-100 Head with Arca-Swiss Type QR Plate for $799 [C/N] {other freebies for other systems}

There’s a special place in photographer’s historic hearts for the 50mm prime lens, and if you like the f1.4 aperture, you may be interested in this new Shiguma offer, their 50mm f1.4 DG HSM Art lens is on sale for $799 at authorized dealers. The freebies vary as follows:

At Adorama’s, Nikon F and Canon EF users get a free Sigma USB dock and the big freebie, a Vanguard Alta Pro 264AT Tripod and TBH-100 Head with Arca-Swiss Type QR Plate which goes for $180 on its own!

At B&H Photo you get a free Sigma USB dock and a free Hoya filter kit in the Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony A, Leica L, Sigma SA “color schemes” [okay, lens mount options]. The Sony E is at the same price BUT it does not include a free USB dock…

Refurbished Sigma 70mm f2.8 DG ART Macro for $379 [C]

I forgot about Dre, and also forgot about the Adorama daily deals where’s it’s another lens day! This set of offers ends on Tuesday at 10am ET [or earlier if sold out]:

+ only the Canon, and nothing more

+ Flashpoint XPLOR 300 Pro TTL R2 Battery-Powered Monolight With Glow 24″ HexaPop for $499

+ Qnap TS-251D 2-Bay NAS Enclosure, Intel Celeron J4005 Dual-Core 2.0GHz, 2GB RAM for $230

UPDATE: among the Woot daily deals (expire Tuesday 11:59pm [hello] central) they have Kindle e-readers and tablets starting at $20, previous gen Android phones, Macbooks and iPads, all of the refurbished kind of course…

UPDATE #2: FREE coffee until the end of 2020 at Panera Bread when you subscribe to their Netflix-style coffee plan (use coupon code FREETIL2021 which is already built-into this link]. If you don’t cancel it, it will auto-renew at the standard rate of $9/month. You can cancel it online or using their app. This includes free (hot or iced) coffee and hot tea. Every two hours you can go and get free refills too. The other more expensive drinks are not included (no espresso-based drinks, no iced tea, no cold brew, no extra syrups, etc). The trick here is to resist getting other things (pastries, sweets, etc) every time you go in for the free coffee. Which is really their plan because many people many times won’t/can’t resist 🙂

Sigma 150-600mm f5-6.3 DC OS HSM Contemporary with FREE USB Dock for $799 [Nikon only]

iT’S A LENS DAY but only for Nikon photographers at the Adorama daily deals.

FREE (by mail) Sigma 45mm f2.8 L-lens with Panasonic S5 PreOrder/Purchase

This is not a Labor Day deal, but I haven’t posted about it yet, so this is a good time to post it! If you are planning to pre-order/purchase the Panasonic S5 full-frame mirrorless camera by 9/30/20, and you are willing to do some e-paperwork, Panasonic-Sigma will send you by mail [once you complete the predefined tasks] a Sigma 45mm f2.8 L-system lens for FREE! This is the first time as far as I can recall when you buy a camera from Manufacturer X and you receive a free lens from Manufacturer Y 🙂

Anyway, the Panasonic S5 body only is available for pre-order for $1999 at B&H Photo and Adorama, both reputable and authorized dealers, and they both mention this promotion explicitly on their website and include a PDF file of the terms and conditions.

A copy of the receipt and the barcode of the camera are among the items needed in order to get the freebie. One gift per purchase and up to two free gifts per person. The gifts will be handed out in purchase-time order. The PDF even includes an email for questions…

PS1: the offer is also available if you purchase the Panasonic S5 with Panasonic 20-60mm f3.5-5.6 S kit for $2298 from B&H Photo and Adorama… This is not a bad starter kit, with a zoom and the Sigma prime by mail arriving later on…

PS2: the offer is not mentioned at the Amazon website. To be safe, for these type of offers, it’s better to go with the camera-centric retailers because they are more organized with the offers, and your claim cannot get caught up in “you bought from an Amazon 3rd-party seller” nonsense…

PS3: the promotional period is September 2-30 in 2020, so if you had previously pre-ordered (from an eligible/authorized dealer) without knowing about the promotion, you are still eligible to participate…

PS4: and if you file a rebate with me, I will send you a vial of certified Olympus Tears 😉
