All good things come to an end, this is dead as a doornail as of a late PM re-check…
I don’t know if Amazon is price-matching someone/something, but as of the time of writing, the new condition Canon 80D with the 18-135mm IS lens is on sale for $1169 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon herself. Limit up to five units per customer during this promotion. This is not a lightning deal. The body only goes for $1000, so this is a pretty good deal for the 18-135mm lens. Even if you don’t want it, you can make a nice profit selling/trading it.
These offers fell off the front page of the blog but they still continue through the Monoprice Camera Clearance:
+ Canon D-Rebel T5i with 18-55 IS STM for $400 with free standard US shipping
+ Canon D-Rebel T6 with 18-55 and 75-300 for $400 with free standard US shipping
This sale is over as of a late 2/23/17 re-check…
A rare Canon full frame dSLR sale! The new condition Canon 6D with the 24-105mm f4L IS lens is on sale for $1789 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of five units per customer. This is not a lightning deal.
It’s Black Friday level pricing for this kit as well, also part of the Monoprice Camera Clearance, the new condition Canon D-Rebel T6 with 18-55 and 75-300 kit is on sale for $400 with free standard US shipping. Limit one unit per customer.
This feels like the old days. It’s raining sales left and right! As part of the Monoprice Camera Clearance, the new condition Canon D-Rebel T5i with 18-55 IS STM is on sale for $400 with free standard US shipping. Limit one unit per customer. The T5i was one of the influential-affordable APS-C DSLRs back in the earlier days. Canon has released many and more APS-C DSLRs since including the brand new D-Rebel T7i that is coming out in the next few weeks. The T7i with 18-55 goes for $900.
If you are comfortable with manufacturer-refurbished DSLRs with a 1-year warranty, for just $49 more than the new condition Canon 80D body only, you can get the manufacturer refurbished Canon 80D with the 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM for $1149~ from the official Canon USA online store with a 1-year warranty.
Another option, if you also want one of the Canon Pixma PRO printers, is to look for or wait for DSLR + Pixma bundles that qualify for the American Express prepaid gift card mail-in rebates.
In parallel with the new D-Rebel T7i, and just $150 away in price (for two out of the three kits), Canon has revealed a new model in their post-Rebel APS-C DSLR line-up. Seven is a theme, the new 24mp APS-C 77D is available for pre-orders in the usual three kits, with a late March 2017 release guestimate…

Also coming along for the ride with today’s announcement is the Canon BR-E1 Wireless Remote Control with a $45 pre-order price.
This new camera has added to the New Cameras of 2017 tracking page, making the DSLR vs Mirrorless score now 4-5 🙂
Running with an almost parallel price and line-up to the mirrorless M6, Canon has also revealed a brand new DSLR in the long-running “Andre Agassi” line-up, aka the (Digital) Rebels. The new 24mp APS-C is available for pre-ordering in the usual three official kits, with a late March 2017 release guestimate.

Also coming along with today’s new D-Rebel is the Canon BR-E1 Wireless Remote Control available for pre-ordering for $45.
This camera and 18-55 lens have been added to the New Cameras of 2017 tracking page.

PS: Adorama should have a contest to see which one of their regular customers has collected the most Cleaning Kits through the years 🙂
The Canon 5D Mark IV Body Only goes for $3500 at authorized Canon USA dealers, such as Adorama which offers 2% promotional rewards with it.
On the other hand, if you are a risk-tolerant shopper, to the Trending eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “Electronics Valley” (99.7%, New Jersey) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Canon 5D Mark IV Body Only for $2799 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the seller (not Canon USA).

Staying with the reborn G-line, Canon also announced a G7X II Video Creator’s Kit available for pre-order for $750. What makes it so not as generous as some of the DSLR kits that include Rode mics, but rather you get a Manfrotto PIXI Mini tabletop tripod, an extra battery, and a 32GB SDHC card.
The Canon G9X (in either color option) is bundled with the Canon PIXMA MX922 wireless AiO (all in one) printer for $429 with free shipping at Adorama… If you don’t need the printer, they have free accessories bundle for the same price that include a 32GB Lexar, a Takama tripod, the Corel Software bundle, a Lowepro case and a cleaning kit…

A new round of Canon DSLR kit Instant Savings and Nikon DSLR kit Instant Savings have launched at B&H Photo, with four items per manufacturer, with some of them getting free accessories and/or promotional rewards.
The first of of the three Canon-Pixma-AMEX promotions is the Canon 70D with the 18-55mm IS STM lens along with the Pixma PRO 100 printer, and its trusty sidekick (SG-201 50pk 13×19″ photo paper), and a DSLR holster bag, and a 16GB Sandisk SDHC card for $1049 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid American Express gift card) at B&H Photo.

If instead of a $50 gift card you prefer a boatload of free extra accessories, at Adorama you get the Corel software kit (Aftershot PRO 2, Paintshop PRO X9, VideoStudio 9, etc) and a 52mm filter kit, and a 16GB Delkin SDHC and a cleaning kit… Another sign Canon is taking mirrorless more seriously than they used to 🙂
The Canon G9 X (in either brown or black) is bundled with a $50 B&H Gift Card for $429 with free shipping at B&H Photo. This is the same price as without the $50 gift card. Once upon a time Canon abandoned RAWsumers, but now they are back in full force as you can see by their various entries in the Fixed Lens Price Charts (early November 2016).
Back to the Canon-Pixma-AMEX trio, Adorama is offering the Canon 5D Mark III body only along with the Pixma PRO 100 printer and 50pk SG-201 13×19″ paper and a Tascam DR-10SG Camera-Mountable Audio Recorder with Shotgun Microphone and $100 promotional rewards (to be used in future purchases) for $3150 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid American Express gift card).

The Canon G9 X goes for $429 on its own, but if you need some extras, there is a bundle at Adorama that includes the Canon Pixma MX922 printer and the 1TB Connect Station CS100 for $479 in the brown color scheme or the black color scheme… Optionally, when you expand the yellow “Special Offer” section and then locate the “Bags” sub-tab, you can add Traffic Collection 24×7 camera bags to your order for +$3 (pouch) or +$7 (small holster) or +$9 (medium holster).
And now back to the Canon DSLR + Pixma printer + AMEX MIRs. This promotion is centered around the Canon 80D with 18-135mm IS STM kit at Adorama. You get the aforementioned, along with the PIXMA PRO 100 printer and its trusty sidekick (50pk 13×19″ SG-201 photo paper) and a Canon shoulder bag (printer does not fit inside). You pay $1399 at checkout. You receive the order, make sure all is working to your satisfaction, and then submit the mail-in rebate following the instructions and deadlines. If all is well, a few weeks later you will receive a $350 prepaid American Express gift card by mail, making this a $1049 after $350 MIR promotion. Rebate details in the PDF file. Offer expires 12/11/16.
And now some mirrorless action at the Canon USA webstore, you can get the manufacturer refurbished with 1-year warranty Canon M3 with EF-M 18-55 IS STM along with a FREE refurbished EF lenses to EOS-M cameras mount adapter, all together for $350 in the black color scheme.
UPDATE: if you don’t need the 18-55 lens, the refurbished M3 body only also gets the free mount adapter, for $300 with a 1-year warranty.
PS: the free mount adapter promotion expires 12/31/16 or earlier if they run out.
One may need to set aside half a day (exaggeration alert) to navigate the clumsy and plodding Canon USA outlet website but if you plod through like a fullback in spring practice, you may find some good offers. For example, if you are interested in the latest D-Rebel T6S with the 18-135mm IS STM lens (instead of the 18-55), you can get that in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 1-year warranty for $750.
On the other hand, if you prefer a two-lens kit, you can get it with the 18-135 IS STM and 55-250 IS STM with a 1-year warranty on everything for $830. So $80 more gets you the 55-250mm lens.
But wait, there’s more! In addition the D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 going for $350, the price has also dropped for the refurbished Canon D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 IS STM and 55-250 IS II with a 1-year warranty from $450 to $400 at Canon USA Outlet.
Price drop! The refurbished Canon D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 IS STM with a one year Canon USA warranty was going for $400 at the Canon USA Outlet but as of the time of writing, this dropped to $350. Other than this being an older DSLR in terms of “smartphone features”, this is a pretty good “take pictures with” starter kit, given the price and the 1-year warranty.
UPDATE: the D-Rebel T5i two-lens kit (18-55 IS STM and 55-250 IS II) also dropped in price, from $450 to $400 as of the time of writing.
In addition to the previously mentioned Canon G5 X getting a free white box 90EX flash, the Canon G1 X II is also getting the same flash for free for a limited time at B&H Photo, going all together for $649 with free shipping. It also receives 2% promotional rewards, about $13 to be used in future B&H purchases.
The Canon PowerShot G5 X is bundled with a white box Canon Speedlite 90EX (a free accessories) for its standard price of $699 with free shipping at B&H Photo. Checkout will be available there again after Saturday 5:45pm ET.
The Canon 18-135mm is more versatile as a beginner lens than the 18-55mm and in this case the versatility costs $100 more, which for many, it may be well worth the 20 extra PSLs 🙂 But as always, we blog, you decide!
Adorama is having another round of Canon Pixma AMEX mail-in rebate bundles, good until Sunday night (or earlier if sold out, or later if extended).
The bundles center on the Canon D-Rebel T5i with two lenses, the Pixma PRO 100 printer, its 50pk 13×19″ photo paper sidekick, and a Canon shoulder bag. Both options get the 75-300mm f4-5.6 III non-USM lens. The difference between the two kits is that one comes with the 18-55mm IS STM lens, while the other kit for $100 more gets the 18-135mm IS STM lens.
Good lord this is a long winded post, so here are the links before I continue for another ten paragraphs:
+ D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 & 75-300 & Pixma PRO 100 printer + 50pk 13×19″ + Bag for $430 after $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card)

To the Canon Outlet specials we go where the manufacturer refurbished with a 1-year Canon USA warranty Canon D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 IS STM is offered for $400.
UPDATE: the D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 IS STM and 55-250 IS II kit goes for $450.

Another Canon + storage bundle at B&H Photo, the Canon 5D Mark III body only is bundled with the 4TB WD My Book USB 3.0 External Hard Drive and a 32GB Sandisk ExtrEmE SDHC card and 2% promotional rewards ($50~ to spend in future B&H purchases) for $2499 with free shipping… No coupons, no rebates, but you can optionally register your product with Canon and get a 13-month accidental damage protection. Also optionally, you can combine this purchase with the Canon PIXMA mail-in rebates… For more action, check the latest B&H Cyber Monday specials…
The Canon DSLR bundles with the PIXMA PRO printers are common enough, but Adorama is taking things to a whole another level by bundling those with a 55″ Ultra HD TV! So let’s start from the beginning, this is a Canon 5D Mark III super bundle. You pay $3450 at checkout, receive the order, make sure all is well, submit the mail-in rebate following the deadlines/instructions, and a few months later you receive a $350 prepaid American Express gift card by mail, making it a $3100 after $350 MIR offer. What you get:
- Canon 5D Mark III with 24-105mm f4 kit
- Canon PIXMA PRO 100 printer
- its trusty sidekick LU-101, 50pk 13×19″ Canon photo paper
- LG Electronics UH6550 55″ 4K UHD Smart LED TV, 120Hz TruMotion, Color Prime Pro
- $350 prepaid American Express gift card (the mail-in rebate)
The mail-in rebate is the standard Canon DSLR + Pixma printer mail-in rebate. It has nothing to do with the LG TV.
The Canon EOS C100 Cinema EOS Camera (Body Only) is going further down, it is now on sale for $1800 with free shipping at B&H Photo with a extra Canon BP-955 battery included by B&H… Please note that this, like other professional Cinema Canon products are NOT returnable to the sellers. Any issues have to be dealt with the manufacturer (warranty)…
More action at the refurbished Canon store, it is the refurbished Canon D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 IS STM going for $400 with a 1-year warranty from Canon.
Red DSLR alert for beginners! The official Canon USA store with its 1-year warranty for refurbished products is offering the refurbished Canon D-Rebel T5 with 18-55 and 75-300 non-USM for $260. The black color scheme of this kit is sold out… This is part of their Black Friday sale…
PS: back in a few minutes after a reboot. All these browser windows are leaking memory like there’s no tomorrow 🙂
Amid this chaos, we continue to price-check the BF ads in the Black Friday Ads Digest post, the latest one to get matched by the internets is the Canon D-Rebel T6i two-lens kit with the 18-55 and 55-250 lenses for $800. The online match is at B&H Photo with 2% rewards, 32GB Sandisk, Canon bag, for $800 with free expedited shipping. As of the time of writing, this kit is not available at Amazon or Adorama (or I couldn’t find it).
The Canon D-Rebel T6 two-lens kit (18-55, 75-300) for $450 is perhaps the most advertised of DSLRs at the Black Friday Ads, offered at least at Office Depot/MAX and BJ’s Wholesale and HH Gregg and Target and Walmart and Best Buy.
Now this offer has been handily defeated by Adorama offering the following additional free accessories to the two-lens kit: Canon Pixma MX922 wireless AiO printer, and Corel software bundle (including PSP X8 and AfterShot PRO 2), extra 3rd-party battery, 58mm UV filter, 16GB SD card, and the obligatory cleaning kit.
B&H Photo offers 2% rewards ($9 in future purchases there) and 16GB Sandisk Extreme SDHC and Sunpak 58mm Filter Kit, while Amazon itself includes a 32GB Lexar Professional and a Wasabi charger with two extra Wasabi batteries [this is NOT edible Wasabi].
As of 8:21pm ET recheck, this sold out…
The Meh deal of the day for Black Friday is usurping the official Black Friday Ads by offering the Canon D-Rebel T6 two-lens kit (18-55, 75-300) for $50 less. They can do this because they are not authorized Canon dealers, so their kit comes with a 1-year warranty from Meh, not Canon USA.
The Canon USA blessed kit goes for $450 by various sellers that offer a variety of free accessories.
The way Meh explains the whole MAP thing is very refreshing:
The Canon SL1 is bundled with the 18-55mm and 75-300mm lenses for $499 with free shipping at B&H Photo which also includes 4% promotional rewards ($20~ to be used in future purchases)… Or if you prefer free accessories, Adorama [corrected link] is bundling it with Corel software, bag, SD, etc for the same price…
The price-checking of the Black Friday Ads continues with the most high-end of the glossy-advertised Black Friday ads price-matched, the Canon 80D with 18-135 is now going for $1400 at various online dealers with a variety of free accessories at each: Amazon itself (bag, extra charger/battery, SD) and B&H Photo (2% rewards, bag, 32GB Extreme, extra battery) and Adorama (with lots of free accessories: Corel, Bag, SD, Filters, etc)
To the latest eBay deals we check-upon where we find the imported grey-market new condition Canon 5D Mark III body only offered for $1800 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty by the seller (not Canon USA). The seller is “Electronics Valley” (99.7%, New Jersey, limit 3 per customer)… For price research, check the 35mm Full Frame Price Charts…
UPDATE 11/22/16: the price dropped from $1850 to $1800
The Instant Savings party continues with Canon, they too have launched a new manufacturer-initiated instant savings promotion featuring a variety of cameras and lenses, along with some flashes. You can find them all nicely organized at B&H Photo… You can compare the current price situation to early November using the November 2016 price charts…
