Imported Canon 5DS for $2700 or 5DS R for $3350

After our little “coffee lens break”, we are back at the eBay Deals with one more imported grey-market promotion, also from eBay seller “Get It Digital” (99.7%). They are offering both of the new new-condition imported grey-market Canon 5D S body only cameras on the same listing. The 5DS goes for $2700, while the 5DS R goes for $3350. You have to select under “Model”, below the listing title. Limit five per buyer. They do not come with a Canon USA warranty, but the eBay seller “Get It Digital” provides their own one year warranty to parallel the benefits.

The 5DS body only, at authorized Canon USA dealers, currently goes for $3700 with various freebies depending on each retailer, such Amazon (free Audio-Technica AT8024 camera-mount mic) or Adorama (2% rewards = $74~) or B&H Photo (2% rewards = $74~).

The 5DS R body only, at authorized Canon USA dealers, currently goes for $3900 with various freebies depending on each retailer, such Amazon (free Audio-Technica AT8024 camera-mount mic) or Adorama (2% rewards = $78~) or B&H Photo (2% rewards = $78~).

The products from the authorized dealers are eligible for the various Canon USA mail-in rebate promotions, while the imported items are not.

Yongnuo 50mm f1.8 (Canon EF) for $53 w/free s&h

Back in our time, when prime lenses were $50, we had to climb the hill backwards four times a day, in five feet of snow, with bone chilling howling winds, while the sun scorched at 130 degrees above.

Time to put back on those climbing-the-hill backwards boots, because you can now get a new condition 50mm prime for around $50. It is the new condition Yongnuo 50mm f1.8 lens (for Canon EF) offered for $53 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. It comes with a one year warranty even!

Imported Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens for $90

To the eBay Deals we go with a rare occurrence, a prime lens under $100. It is new condition, but it is imported (grey market). However, a basic 50mm f1.8 prime lens is a much lower risk than $5000 tilt-shift walking-on-eggshells lens, so it’s up to you to enter your risk matrix and reach a decision.

Mumbling aside, this is a new condition imported grey-market Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens offered for $90 with free shipping with a limit of five per buyer by eBay seller “Red Tag Camera” (99.9%). Over 2400 units have been sold so far from this listing.

At authorized dealers, this lens goes for $125, such as Amazon and B&H Photo where the imported goes for $110.

Canon Pixma Printer Savings and/or more savings with Camera purchase (with Mail-In Rebates (prepaid AMEX Gift Card))

One of the B&H Photo headliner deals for the Photo Shop World 2015 is a Canon Pixma Printer savings promotion. You must needs enter coupon code PSWBH15 for these promotions to activate and use this B&H link that activates the promotion.

There are two ways to go about this. One is to buy the printers on their own straight up. They have a $250 mail-in rebate offer, bringing the printers down to $50 after MIR for the Pixma-100, $250 after MIR for the Pixma-10 and $450 after MIR for the Pixma-1.

The other option is to buy one of the printers along with one of the camera kits listed on the promotional page. This qualifies for an additional $350 mail-in rebate (on the combined purchase of a printer and camera). Some items may also come with promotional rewards or other freebies which are independent of this promotion.

The mail-in rebates are in the form of a prepaid American Express Gift Card (not a cashable check). The coupons expire 8/16/15. Here’s the B&H banner summarizing this offer:

canon_pixma_bh_photoshop_world_2015_mail_in_rebates

PS: in case you are not familiar with these, you either get the $250 MIR if you buy a printer on its own or a $350 MIR if you buy a printer together with a digital camera. The table in the PDF rebate form (can be found on all the eligible product pages at B&H) makes it clear. The additional discounts above are from the B&H coupon and special promotion.

Rule #4975.34.AV30iiv (0.453 revision) of the Brand Fairness Doctrine requires that every time we mention a Tokina special, we have to match it with a Tamron offer, if nothing else, because those two names are too similarly confusing, at least to newcomers to the world of photography 😉 With that unnecessary introduction out of the way, the Tamron SP 24-70mm f2.8 DI VC USD Lens is offered for $1200 after a $100 mail-in rebate (MIR) plus 4% promotional rewards (= $50~) by B&H Photo in the Canon, Nikon and Sony Minolta Alpha mounts.
