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.
Nine Canon lenses are currently on sale at B&H Photo, a mix of Primes and Zooms, all of them get 4% promotional rewards, as follows:
+ 35/f1.4L USM for $899
+ 40/2.8 STM for $129

+ 70-300 f4-5.6 IS USM for $399
+ 100-400 f4.5-5.6L IS II USM for $1899
F2 zoom lenses are a thing too these days, partially thanks to the DX format, which brings us to the Tokina 14-20mm f/2.0 AT-X Pro DX lens bundled with a boatload of free accessories for $599 with free shipping at Adorama in the Nikon mount and Canon mount. The free accessories are: 82mm Pro-Optic Filter Kit, Slinger Lens Case, lens cap tether, cleaning kit, lens shade, and an updated Corel software bundle that includes Paintshop Pro X9 and VideoStudio 9 and AfterShot PRO 2. Both are in-stock with free shipping.
Normal price action now of the Rokinon kind, their 50mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC lens is on sale for $299 with free shipping with 2% promotional rewards (around $6 to be used in future purchases) at B&H Photo in the Canon and Nikon SLR systems and the Sony E-mount. The sale ends 12/6/16 at 11:59pm ET.
This flash sale ended…
In addition to the day-long deals, the B&H Photo Daily Deals also include flash sales, offers that only run a few hours each (instead of the full 24 hours). Currently running until 9am ET on Monday is the Vivitar 1.4x Teleconverter for $70 with free shipping in either Canon or Nikon.
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)

Pentax does not have a monopoly on pancakes, Canon photographers can now have pancakes and have enough money left for some maple syrup too 🙂 The manufacturer refurbished Canon 40mm f2.8 STM EF with a 1-year warranty is offered for $100 at the official Canon USA store.
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 11/29/16 late PM: the USB Lens Dock is no longer included with this offer…
The official Canon USA store continues with its Cyber Monday sales. I am trying to find time to go through this, but I simply can’t stop time, and the Canon outlet website takes time to navigate and price-check, so this is a DIY adventure until I can stop time 🙂
If you like the idea of 3rd-party battery grips, B&H Photo is having a sale on their Vello brand of Battery Grips with 32 products participating. Most of the models are for Canon and Nikon DSLRs, but there are also a couple for the Panasonic GH-series and a trio for Sony a7** cameras… This too is part of the B&H Cyber specials.

UPDATE 6pm ET: According to the schedule at the B&H Photo Daily Deals, ending at 9pm ET, is a flash sale on the Canon version of the Bower SLY 358C 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens for $150 with free shipping. The price before the was $219 for Canon and $199 for Nikon. The Nikon version is not on sale.
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.
If Nikon has a two lens kit, so must Canon, and their 2-Lens Portrait and Travel kit with the 50mm f1.8 STM and EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is back in-stock and ready to ship for $319 with free shipping at B&H Photo… Meanwhile Adorama is “temporarily on backorder”…
