Imported Canon 6D body only w/1-YR seller warranty for $1000

The Canon 6D body only (first generation) goes for $1400 at authorized dealers (eg Adorama or Amazon itself). Or it goes for $1200 in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 1-year warranty at the Canon Outlet store

… but if you prefer to save some more, off to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller 6ave (98.9%, New Jersey) is offering it for $1000 with free shipping in imported grey-market condition with a 1-year seller warranty. Limit up to three units per customer…

With the newest second generation model, the Canon 6D II body going for $2000 in new condition at authorized dealers, you’d be paying half for the previous generation.

New Canon (EF) and Fuji (X, GF) Instant Savings

Sundays are the starts of new “shopping weeks” and promotions at retailers and also by manufacturers through their MAP-controlled “Instant Savings” promotions. This Sunday we have two new instant savings promotions going live, nicely organized by B&H Photo as follows:

+ Canon Instant Savings featuring five DSLRs and 13 lenses

+ Fuji Instant Savings featuring a handful of cameras and lenses, in the X System and the GF* system too
+ also available nicely organized at Adorama

Tamron 12-28mm f4 PRO APS-C for $199 [Canon]

It looks like Amazon has price-matched the B&H offer. As of the time of writing, you can get the new condition Tamron 12-28mm f4 PRO APS-C lens in the Canon mount for $199 with free shipping, sold and shipped by Amazon itself. Maximum three lenses per customer.

It is currently in “temporarily out of stock” status, so shipping date is up in the air, but you can lock the $199 price if you like it.

Imported Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD for $690 [C/N]

The new condition Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens bundled with some free accessories goes for $1100 at authorized dealers such as Adorama. But if you want to save a lot and you are comfortable with imported grey-market, then…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “QuickNDone” (99.9%) is offering the lens in new condition imported grey-market for $690 with free shipping in the Canon mount or the Nikon mount.

Limit five per mount per customer. Between them they sold over 800 units.

Warranty-wise, if you are buying in Canada, you get a 6-year Tamron Canada warranty. If you are buying elsewhere, you get the 1-year Tamron International warranty. So it’s a lot shorter than the Tamron USA warranty. That’s one of the reasons why the price is lower. They are a Canadian seller but the eBay listing says they ship from various locations in the USA.

Imported Canon 6D II Body Only for $1715+

An update of the Stock Status Tracker is in-progress, and we have new lower prices for imported grey-market Canon 6D II Body Only kits since the last time we checked. The new condition authorized dealer price is $2000, but if you are comfortable with imported with a 1-year seller warranty:

+ 6ave on eBay (IMP) for $1715 with free shipping

+ Deals All Year on eBay (IMP) for $1730 with free shipping

Tamron SP 45mm f1.8 Di VC USD with FREE 67mm Hoya Filter and $16 rewards for $399 [C/N; A (no VC)]

Prime temptation of the stabilized kind! Hide your wallets! The new condition Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD is bundled with a FREE Hoya 67mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter and 4% promotional rewards (around $16 to be used in future purchases) at B&H Photo for $399 with free expedited shipping in the Canon and Nikon DSLR systems. The same price and extras are available for the Sony A system but the lens is not stabilized (VC).

The same price with 4% promotional rewards but no free Hoya filter at Adorama. The same price but no freebies thru Amazon (but you can get 5% statement credit as a Prime member paying with official Amazon credit cards).

Still Good: Tamron 18-270mm f3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD for $329 [C/N, A {no VC}]

A proper superzoom lens sale! The new condition Tamron AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens is on sale for $329 with free expedited shipping in the Canon and Nikon DSLR systems at B&H Photo. VC here meaning Vibration Correction which is Tamron-speak for image stabilization.

This lens is also on sale in the Sony A-mount, however this one is without VC since Sony camera bodies support sensor-shift image stabilization. Check your local photo forums for never-ending debates on the merits of the various image stabilization systems 🙂

As of 9/28/17 9:12am ET recheck, this sale continues… This sale ends on 9/27/17 at 11:59pm ET (or earlier if any of them sell out).

Sigma 105mm f2.8 EX DG OS HSM MACRO with Extras for $569 [C/N/Si]

The Dream of the 90s is alive, not just in Portland, but also in stabilized tele-macro lenses! The new condition Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM MACRO lens is on sale for $569 with 4% promotional rewards (around $23~ to be spent in future purchases) at B&H Photo in the Canon, Nikon and Sigma SLR systems.

If you prefer free lens-y accessories instead of 4% promotional rewards, Adorama is offering instead a Tiffen 62mm Filter Kit, lens cap tether and cleaning kit.

Refurbished Canon 70D with 18-135mm for $800

Lots of refurbished Canons are participating in the Pumpkin Spice Mocha sale sale at the Canon outlet store.

We previously mentioned the refurb 80D with 18-55 for $779. For a similar ballpark price, you can trade-off an older body with a better lens, it’s the manufacturer refurbished Canon 70D with 18-135mm with a 1-year Canon USA warranty for $800 with free shipping.

This kit is almost gone from authorized/reputable dealers, but its price defeats the used price of $912 at B&H Photo in “Condition 9” with only a 90-day B&H Used warranty.

Irix 11mm f4 for $550 (Firefly) or $725 (Blackstone) [C/N/K]

And now a sale on a new entrant in the world of DSLR lenses, the Irix 11mm f4 lens is on sale for $550 in the Firefly configuration (Joss Wheadon not included) and $725 in the Blackstone configuration at B&H Photo in the Canon, Nikon and Pentax K systems. Yes, Pentax fans lucked out this time, they made a K-lens as well as CaNikon!

This is a limited time sale. Expiration date unknown. For more action, check the B&H Featured sales.

Refurbished Canon 80D with 18-55 w/1-YR Warranty for $779 [80D w/18-135 for $1079]

Back to the Canon Pumpkin Spice sales we go, where, despite the goofy name for their sale, all these come with a 1-year Canon USA warranty and very competitive prices on some items compared to buying them new condition at authorized dealers.

The Canon 80D with the 18-55mm lens currently goes for $1250 at authorized dealers such as Adorama.

But if you buy manufacturer refurbished with a 1-year warranty from the Canon USA Outlet store, you can get the Canon 80D with 18-55mm kit for $779 with free shipping. That’s 38% off the new condition price and you still get the same warranty!

If you don’t want/need the 18-55 kit lens, you can sell, donate, trade, gift or experiment upon the 18-55 lens!

The discount is not as big, but it’s less if you are instead interested in the 80D with 18-135mm kit. It goes for $1500 at authorized dealers versus $1079 at Canon USA Outlet.

Refurbished Canon Zoom Lenses w/1-YR Warranty: EF-S 10-18 f4.5-5.6 for $190, EF 17-40mm f4L for $540

What about some Pumpkin Spice Sales for breakfast?

Let’s round up the lenses. We already mentioned two primes under $100 and the 85mm f1.8 EF for $260, but there are more value options at the Canon Pumpkin store:

As S.W. Anderson pointed out in the comments earlier, if you are looking for a bang for the buck EF-S zoom, the manufacturer refurbished Canon 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM EF-S is available for $190 with a full 1-year warranty Canon USA warranty… In new condition this goes for $279 with some freebies at authorized dealers such as Adorama.

Also zooming, the manufacturer refurbished Canon EF 17-40 f/4L USM goes for $540 with a 1-year Canon USA warranty. In new condition this lens goes for $749 with freebies at authorized dealers such as Adorama.

Refurbished Canon D-Rebel T6i w/18-55 & 55-250 for $560

If you are looking for a “take pictures with” Canon DSLR kit without breaking the bank, the Canon USA Outlet store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Canon D-Rebel T6i Two Lens Kit with the 18-55 EF-S IS STM and 55-250 IS STM lenses along with a 1-year Canon USA warranty for $560.

This is a limited time offer, part of their Pumpkin Spice Refurbished Sale.

PS: if they chose that name, they should have been giving everyone who buy a camera or lens a promo code for a free PSL 😉

Refurbished Canon Primes Under $100: 50mm f1.8 EF for $80; 24mm f2.8 EF-S for $99.99

Going with the theme of the season, the official Canon USA Outlet store has launched a Pumpkin Spice Refurbished Sale (that’s their own name for it, not my goofy joke), and that includes two primes under $100 but still with a 1-year Canon USA warranty:

+ refurbished Canon 50mm f1.8 EF for $80

+ refurbished Canon 24mm f2.8 EF-S for $99.99 (thus my loophole to call it under $100)

Metz mecablitz 52 AF-1 Flash (Canon) for $108 [USED] or $244 [NEW]

The new condition Metz mecablitz 52 AF-1 digital Flash for Canon Cameras is currently on sale in the Canon version only, in NEW CONDITION, for $244~ with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. The other system options go for more!

But if you are comfortable with used flashes, you can cut the price in half, you can get it in “Used – Very Good” condition with minor cosmetic damage, in original packaging, going for $108~ with free shipping Aamzon Warehouse Daels itself, another of one of the recent Bargain Bin additions.

Used Fotodiox Pro Auto Macro Extension Tube (21mm, for Canon EF lenses) for $9

The Bin-a-thon continues, with another Fotodiox product, but this time it’s a macro extension. It is the Fotodiox Pro Auto Macro Extension Tube (21mm, for Canon EF lenses), in “USED – Like NEW” condition (original packaging) going for the very specific price of $9.44 by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.

Free 2-day shipping for Prime members or with a $25+ order: If you need a little something to get to $25+, check our previous AmazonBasics posts or add … 108 Stash Herbal Tea bags for $5.10 🙂

Imported Tamron 24-70 f2.8 Di VC USD for $690 [C/N]

The first generation new condition Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD goes for $1100 at authorized dealers which can include some free accessories such as Adorama.

But if you are a more adventurous shopper, then to the eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “QuickNDone” (99.9%) is offering the lens in new condition for $690 with free shipping in the Nikon system. Per the listing, the sale ends 9/20/17.

UPDATE: they also offer this in the Canon EF system for the same price.

Further down the product listing, under “Warranty” it says that you get either a 1-Year Tamron International warranty or a 6-Year Tamron Canada warranty, depending on location. They also offer a 30-day return policy.

This is a higher risk than buying in new condition from authorized Tamron USA dealers, that’s one of the reasons for the lower price. I believe “QuickNDone” is a Canadian seller.

Sigma 100-400mm Contemporary + FREE USB Lens Dock and 67mm WR UV filter for $799 [C/N/Si]

It’s Shiguma time! Tamron may have announced an upcoming 100-400mm lens, but you can’t take pictures with a future lens. You can take pictures with an existing lens, which brings us to the new condition Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens bundled for FREE with the Sigma USB Lens Dock and a 67mm Sigma WR UV lens filter, all together going for $799 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo in your choice of Canon, Nikon or Sigma SLR systems.

Pre-order new Profoto A1 AirTTL Studio Lights and Accessories

To get along with them, they are also launching nine accessories (gel kits, extra batteries, chargers, bounce cards, etc. You can see them all and place pre-orders at B&H Photo and Adorama.

New Lens, No Pre-Orders: Tamron 100-400 f4.5-6.3 Di VC USD

Tamron has revealed a new DSLR lens, the 100-400 f4.5-6.3 Di VC USD for the Canon and Nikon systems. There is no price on the lens yet, and since there’s no price, there are no pre-order options yet either.

There is a product page created for this lens however at B&H Photo.

This too has been added to the New Lenses of 2017 page.

KEH Weekly USED Coupon Deals: Canon 100-300 f4.5-5.6 for $59+, Mamiya RZ67 MF Body for $136+

A new week has arrived which means another round of featured USED Weekly Sales at KEH has been added. These are eligible for 25% off with permanent coupon KEHDEALS and continue until Friday night of the same week (eg Friday 9/22/17 in this case).

This week includes:

+ USED Canon 100-300mm F/4.5-5.6 USM EF for $59+ starting in BGN (Bargain) condition

+ USED Mamiya RZ67 Medium Format Camera Body for $136+ starting in BGN (Bargain) condition

Now shipping: Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Canon EF)

The mirrorless systems sort of countered the advantage of Canon and Nikon DSLR systems having more 3rd-party lens options than the DSLR systems of the other manufacturers. But DSLR-wise, Canon and Nikon systems still have an advantage over the other remaining DSLR systems.

For example, then new Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD G2 is only available in Nikon and Canon, and as of the time of writing, the Canon EF version is in-stock and ready to ship for $1199 at B&H Photo.

The 3rd-party lens manufacturers also serve to keep OG Canon and Nikon lens prices in check. Imagine how much the f2.8 PRO zooms would cost if Canikon knew that you couldn’t get Tamrons and Tokinas and Shigumas instead…

PS: “Shiguma” was the computer-translated name of Sigma from back in the day of earlier versions of computer-translation software technology 🙂

Pre-order new Canon MT-26EX-RT Macro Twin Lite

Of Canon lighting interest, they have revealed a brand new Canon MT-26EX-RT Macro Twin Lite with a starting price of $989 and a mid-November 2017 release estimate. Pre-orders are accepted at B&H Photo and Amazon itself and Adorama.

Despite that estimate, there are a couple of listings at Amazon by Beach Camera that say this is in-stock and shipping in a few days. They have the same price and include some free accessories, one bundle with a 128GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SDXC, and another bundle with a Tripod, Kodak Flash and more. This also shows as in-stock at Beach Camera’s own website, but not at their Buydig online-centric website.

I have no way of verifying whether it is indeed in-stock there, so YMMV…
