*OR* you can pre-order the exciting (for Apple’s accountants for sure) Apple AirPods Max for $549 in your choice of five different color options… There are complaints about pricing but lt’s not forget audiophiles willing pay up to $5000 for headphones, so Apple kept it modest with these πŸ˜‰

*OR* to go in Rockwell-mode, this $18 Koss KSC-75 headphone is the only headphone you’ll ever need. And it won’t ruin your hair or press on your jaw or jam up the inside of your ears πŸ™‚ And when you open the package, you also get a bonus aroma of the Koss (Wisconsin) diary air πŸ˜‰

Pre-order new Tamron 17-70mm f2.8 Di III-A VC RXD for $799 [E]

Sony E fans, in mid-January 2021 you can have in your hands a brand new f2.8 zoom lens for the APS-C E system! That’s when the estimate is for the release of the just-announced Tamron 17-70mm f2.8 Di III-A VC RXD lens. It has a pre-order price of $799 and already B&H Photo is accepting pre-orders

Interesting decision to release a brand new APS-C lens in a world where full frame E-system cameras are close in price to the higher tier APS-C E-system cameras. But for those who are bought into the APS-C E-system, certainly having a compact(er) f2.8 17-70mm (25-105mm eq) lens can be quite tempting
