The action continues at the eBay Deals where Buydig’s eBay store is offering the new condition Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 Di VC USD Zoom Lens (A011) for $820 with free shipping in the Canon and Nikon mounts. Limit five per buyer. There is no mention in the eBay listing of whether this is eligible for the Tamron mail-in rebates. $820 is the price you pay when you checkout from eBay (plus taxes if applicable).
The Tamron 16-300mm f3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO lens is on sale for $500 after $130 back with two mail-in rebates at B&H Photo. It is the regular $80 MIR plus a $50 bonus Black Friday MIR. The lens is available in the Canon, Nikon and Alpha SLR mounts. The $50 bonus rebate expires 12/7/15.
And we are baaaack with Tammy Wynette singing the zoom lens blues. Tamron time that is. The Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens is on sale for $950 after $120 back with two mail-in rebates ($70 and $50) at B&H Photo. Not only that, but you also earn 10% promotional rewards on the purchase, which, considering the price of the lens, that’s a very decent amount. The $70 mail-in rebate (MIR) is the regular one, plus there is a $50 Black Friday limited time MIR (expires 12/7/15). PDFs and details at the individual product pages of the lenses. This is available in the Canon, Nikon, and Sony SLR mounts…
If you are looking at the 150-600mm range, there’s also a Sigma promotion for both the Contemporary and the Sports edition of their 150-600mm lens.

There are also two Canon 6D bundles with the Pixma AMEX mail-in rebates. The first bundle is centered on the 6D Body Only and Pixma Pro 100 and 50pk 13×19″ photo paper and gadget bag and 32GB Lexar SD for $1150 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid American Express Gift Card).
I got sidetracked before finishing all the Canon Pixma rebates last night, here’s more at Adorama, these ones centered around the Canon D-Rebel T6i. There are two bundles: the D-Rebel T6i w/18-55 IS STM and Pixma Pro 100 and 50pk 13×19″ photo paper and gadget bag and 32GB Lexar SD go for $600 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid American Express Gift Card).
Meanwhile the D-Rebel T6i w/18-135 IS STM with the same bundle as above goes for $750 after a $350 MIR. So you are swapping the 18-55 for the 18-135 for an extra $150. Decisions, decisions… Rebate details in the PDF file…
Another one of the DSLR offers of the Black Friday Ads is now price-matched by the internet. The Nikon D7100 2-Lens kit with the 18-55 DX VR and 55-300 DX VR lenses and extras (Wifi adapter, case, card) is price-matched to $1000 at B&H Photo (with 2% rewards) and Adorama and Amazon by Amazon.
On the other hand, if you only need the camera, and don’t care for the 18-55/55-300 lenses, you can get the body only manufacturer-refurbished with a 90 day Nikon USA warranty for $490 at Adorama

The main Canon DSLR deal featured in Black Friday Ads is the Canon D-Rebel T5 with the 18-55 and 75-300 non-USM lenses for $400. Fast forward to now, and already the internets have price-matched that offer, you can get it for $400 at Amazon and Adorama (with lots of free extras) and B&H Photo (with different set of free extras).
The Nikon DSLR deal that appears in many of the Black Friday Ads is the Nikon D3300 two-lens VR kit (18-55, 55-200, both VR) for $500. The internets have now matched that deal, you can get the kit, with a wireless adapter, remote controller, 16GB card and $10~ promotional rewards for $500 at Adorama… Optionally you can add additional Nikon SLR lenses for a combined purchase discount (see the yellow “Special Offer” section)… Contrasting that, the D3200 2-lens VR kit goes for $400…
UPDATE: this offer also landed at Amazon for $500.
If you are cool with mail-in rebates, Adorama has a Canon SL1 bundle with the 18-55 IS STM and 75-300 non-USM lenses, the Pixma Pro 100 printer, a 50pk 13×19″ photo paper, two camera bags, and 32GB SD card, for $380 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid American Express gift card). Offer ends 11/29/15.
The Nikon D3200 is a stubborn DSLR. It refuses to go away. It even finds itself in the Black Friday spotlight. The Nikon D3200 two-lens DX VR kit (18-55, 55-200) is now on sale for $400 with frees shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 5) and Adorama and B&H Photo et al.
NOTE: the newer Nikon D3300 two-lens VR kit will be offered for $500 during Black Friday (currently goes for $600). So there’s a $100 trade-off price-wise between the D3200 and D3300 two-lens VR kits.
Another decision point is whether you need the two DX VR lenses or not. You can get the D3200 body only in refurbished condition with a 90 day Nikon warranty for $245 at Adorama.
Another data point, you can get the D3200 two-lens kit with the non-VR lenses, in manufacturer refurbished condition for $300 by BuyDig on eBay.
Around round of Pentax Lens Instant savings promotions is under way. As of the time of writing, 38 items (mostly lenses, along with some flashes and a 1.4x converter) are on sale.

This is back in-stock, part of the official Canon Outlet sales with one year Canon USA warranties, the black refurbished Canon SL1 two lens (18-55 IS STM, 75-300mm f4-5.6 III non-USM) is on sale for $270 with free shipping. This is $20 more than the SL1 with 18-55, so the question is whether you value the 75-300 non-USM lens (the Jon Snow of the EF system!) at $20 or more or less.
Prime party in double figures for Canon photographers too, the EF 50mm f1.8 STM lens is currently on sale in refurbished condition with a one year warranty for around $86 by the Canon Outlet store… For the previously mentioned Canon specials over there, check the Canon archives here or check their Pre Black Friday sale over there…
