Canon SX170 IS red + 1yr Spills/Drops for $90

The Sanity Break is over! A new Deal Parade begins now!

Simply add the camera to the bundle (blue button) and add the bundle to the shopping cart (green button) and you are good to go. No coupons, no rebates!

Canon 50mm f1.8 II (imported/grey) for $98

Included in the camera sub-section of the eBay Deals is the new condition Canon 50mm f1.8 II lens offered for $98 with free shipping by eBay seller RedTag Camera (99.9%). There is no mention of a warranty on the product page and they are not an authorized Canon dealer, so this is likely an imported / grey-market model. As such, it is not eligible for the Canon mail-in rebates. This is a simple prime lens in double figures, so, for some, this may not be an unreasonable risk to take. The blessed by Canon USA model goes for $105 after a $20 mail-in rebate at authorized dealers (eg B&H Photo, Adorama). Not sure how many people would want to go through the hassle of a mail-in rebate for $20, unless they are buying other Canon DSLRs and lenses that are also part of the mail-in rebate promotion. So if you are interested in this lens, the trade-off: imported vs mail-in rebate. We blog, you decide!

Sigma 150–500mm F/5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM (C/N/A/P/S) for $770 [not sure about warranty]

Groupon Goods is offering the new condition Sigma 150–500mm F/5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM for $770 with free shipping in the five SLR mounts (Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Sigma). One thing to pay attention to is that it only says “One-year warranty from Sigma”.

I don’t know if this is an incomplete explanation of the warranty, since Groupon does not specialize in camera gear? Or it this actually different from the warranty offered by other sellers? For example, if you look at the pages of this lens at Adorama or B&H Photo, where it goes for $870, it says you get a one year international warranty plus a two year USA warranty.
