Bundle up time for the E-mount! Adorama is offering a Sony a6000 bundle with the 16-50 and 55-210 lenses and the Adobe Lightroom 6 software (stand-alone, not cloud), all together for $846 with free shipping.

If you don’t want/need Lightroom 6, for the same price and same two lenses, you can get free accessories in the black kit (extra Sony batter, extra Sony charger, Sony screen protector, 64GB Lexar SDXC) and in the silver kit (same free accessories).

On the other hand, if you are fond of certified refurbished, and don’t need any of the aforementioned bonus items, you can get the Sony a6000 two-lens kit for $680 with free shipping by Secondipity thru Amazon.

32GB Sony Class 10 SDHC for $7.19 (limit 1)

This fell off the front page, so in case you missed it, the 32GB Sony Class 10 UHS-1 SDHC up to 70MB/s Memory Card (SF32UY2) is currently on sale for $7.19 at Amazon by Amazon herself. Limit of one per customer. It beats the other storage options in its own sub-line (8GB to 256GB) in terms of $/GB. If you are a Prime member, you get free shipping even if you just buy this one and nothing else.

It is currently “temporarily out of stock” but you can still order it. Per the Amazon affiliate statistics, some of last week’s purchases have shipped, so there is a light at the end of the SD tunnel.

If you are not a Prime member, a $49+ total order of physical goods (shipped/fulfilled by Amazon) or an order that has $25+ in books, gets you the new free super-saver shipping. This is not a lightning deal.

PS: I don’t know how long it takes before the “limit 1” per customer restriction resets for future purchases. I haven’t purchased it yet, so I can’t test it yet. I have to check my SD card inventory first.
