This apparently sold out and the 16GB option got removed from the website. This may be temporary, as Amazon sometimes yanks listings temporarily when a sale end (must be so kind of a technical issue, perhaps to counter caching issues?)

Speaking of Sigma, they have announced but they have not priced yet the brand new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG OS HSM Art lens in the Canon, Nikon and Sigma SLR systems. Since it is not priced, there are no pre-orders yet.
This has been added to the New Cameras and Lenses of 2017 page.
Adorama has just launched another One Day Sale with over 3000 items participating. You can filter them using the various options on the left hand side of the page (by manufacturer, product category, price range, etc). It is hard for me to digest massive drops of this nature, so posting this is a compromise between waiting forever until I find time to go through it all or not post anything at all.
This promotion expired, but eBay has these on a recurring basis these days…

One bang for the buck way to scoop up Canon DSLR gear is buy manufacturer refurbished models that come with a 1-year Canon USA warranty from the official Canon USA store. Likewise, some of the Powershots are offered in refurbished condition with a 1-year warranty.

If you are part of the Amazon ecosystem, their brand new “Amazon Echo Show”, the one with a 7-inch touchscreen built-in, is now available for pre-order at Amazon for $230.
But if you are sold on the Echo/Alexa ecosystem, you can pre-order two of them and use coupon code SHOW2PACK to get $100 off. So it is $460 – $100 = $360. Essentially it is a “Buy One, Get a Second one for $130 more”.
The shipping estimate is late June 2017.
Speaking of Amazon, they are offering the Lord of the Rings: Theatrical Trilogy on BluRay for $10 total (three movies). Limit three sets per customer.
PS: I am trying to figure out how to do the on-going Amazon deals without having a daily bloat appended to the end of the Lightning Deals post. I am leaning towards having a separate permapost (done in the fashion of the Stock Status Tracker that gets frequently updated). Please feel free to opine on this in the comments or use the online contact form or le twitter.

Nikon seems to love two lens kits these days, in another promotion, the Nikon D5600 with the 18-55 DX VR and 70-300 DX non-VR bundle is on sale for $900, that’s $200 more than the body only, and $100 more than the w/18-55 kit. But some retailers are also bundling it with some freebies. At Adorama you get the Corel software bundle, a Bower 58mm filter, a Lowerpro 160 Format bag, a 16GB Lexar SD card and a cleaning kit.
At B&H Photo you get a 32GB Sandisk Extreme SDHC memory card and a Ruggard holster bag.
No freebies by Amazon itself but if you are a Prime member and pay with either the Amazon Chase VISA or the Prime Store credit card, you get 5% back as a statement credit (around $45).
A new round of Olympus Instant Savings promotions are running until 6/3/17 featuring M43rds cameras, lenses and a couple of P&S critters too. Many of them get 4% promotional rewards as well. Free shipping. You can find the participating products nicely organized at Adorama.
If you have a compatible Amazon hardware device or app, you can place orders with your Voice, using Alexa, and get some exclusive Alexa Voice Ordering discounts. One such offer running at the moment is 50% off the Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 & Premiere Elements 15 bundle. Its current price is $125, so half off would make it $62.50.
The price of the software can change at any time, so that should be 50% off of whatever the future-current price will be. You can only get this discount with Alexa Voice Ordering, not with a web browser. Expiration dates are not mentioned on that page, so the offer is good as long as you see it there.
At the same page, there’s also a $12 off promotion on the Corel PaintShop Pro X9 software. The current price is $42, so the discount will drop it to $30. Again, the price of the software can change at any time, the discount is $12 off of the future-current price.
And speaking of Corel, but unrelated to Alexa Voice ordering, a lightning deal of the Amazon Gold Box has the Corel PaintShop Pro X9 Ultimate on sale for $40 with free shipping until Tuesday 2:29am ET as a PC Disc (not a download).
PS: it looks like the free shipping over $25 is back on again at Amazon for Prime members, but since it’s been going on and off, we may have to wait for a few days to see where it settles.
It’s coupon time at AdoramaPIX, coupon code PXMOMNOW (three words, PX (as in pictures) MOM NOW ~ type it without spaces) gets you 20% off Photo Prints. The offer is only good on Paper photo prints, not other material. This cannot be combined with other offers. Free shipping if your after-coupon order total is $49+. Coupon expires Tuesday night (5/9/17).

The new condition price of the X100F at authorized dealers is $1300. For more options, check the Stock Status Tracker where there is one retailer that has both colors for $1300. The listing says they ship from the USA, but the seller’s page says they are in Hong Kong. I haven’t tried to go through with a purchase to see what happens [poor blogger!]
As of a 5/10/17 AM recheck, all used options at $1355 expired…
