Samyang/Rokinon 85mm 1.4 MF lenses start at $248 [m43], $259 [X, K], $269 [Z], Etc

IF the new $399 Rokinon 85mm f1.4 II manual focus lenses do not tempt you and you want to optimize for a lower price, $269 is what it takes to get into the new condition Samyang 85mm f1.4 MF lens with the Nikon Focus Confirm

The other Samyang and Rokinon 85mm f1.4 options [look for them in the aforelinked search results]:

+ M43rds for $248

I know, I know, it is 2020, some of you will argue, there’s no way I’m dealing with Manual Focus Lenses in 2020. Next thing you’re gonna tell me to buy a Huawei P40 phone and spend 20 hours every single frakking week hunting for new hacks and loopholes to run Google Play on them ๐Ÿ˜‰

And you would be right if your typical subject matter or your style of photography requires autofocus. But a lot of things don’t move at all, others move in predictable ways, and in these COVID-stressful times there’s a certain level of relaxation and grounding when you use manual focus. And in some ways, it forces you to pay closer attention to the scene you are photographing…

Refurbished Canon DSLRs and Ms sale (60 options)

Canon is running some more holiday promotions on various refurbished DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. Since these can sell out quickly, I’m posting them now instead of waiting until I can find time to go through them, because some of the good deals can (and do) sell out before I can find time to “digest” them:

+ manufacturer 60 refurbished DSLRs and M Mirrorless cameras

+ some unconventional/uncommon kits among these new condition cameras

Refurbished Canon Outlet Sale (29 options)

The official Canon USA store is running a refurbished DSLR (mostly) sale featuring 26 different kits. Since these sell out quickly, I’m posting this right away because if I wait until I can find time to dissect it, more of them will likely sell out.

Separately they have a clearance sale of three items, headlined by the manufacturer refurbished Canon 5D Mark II (yes, Mark TWO) for $1599 with free shipping. It is in-stock as of the time of writing.

Refurbished Canon EF-M Lenses: 18-150 for $180, 55-200 for $150 w/1-YR Warranty

The Canon EF-M mirrorless offers don’t sell out as fast as the Canon EF/EF-S DSLR cameras and lenses when they are put on sale at the official Canon USA outlet store with the 1-year Canon USA warranty. So it’s music to your EF-M ears. Which brings us to a refurbished Canon EF-M Lens sale with the following lenses in-stock as of the time of writing, all refurbished below:

+ EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM for $130
+ EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens Graphite for $180

Of interest if interested in a “take pictures with” kit for the Canon mirrorless system. Both the black and the white color schemes are in-stock as of the time of writing.

UPDATE: another model has dropped since last week, the refurbished Canon M3 with 18-55 has dropped from $399 to $349. Both the black and the white color schemes are in-stock as of the time of writing.

Buy Canon M6 Kits, Get the EVF-DC1 for $100 more

These are new condition!

You can find this offer at some authorized dealers, for example, at Adorama, expand the yellow “Special Offer” section and you’ll see the option.

Refurbished Canon M3 Body w/1-YR W for $329 [or w/15-45 for $399]

If you already have Canon mirrorless system lenses, or you are planning to use the lens mount adapter, or don’t want/need the “with 15-45mm” kits, another Canon mirrorless camera on the way out is the M3. The body remains available with some free accessories for $429 at Adorama, same price as mid early November when we posted the Mirrorless Price Charts.

But if you want to shave $100 off that price, and still get a 1-year warranty from Canon, you can get it for $329 in manufacturer refurbished condition (manurefurb) where it is one of the 38 cameras in their refurbished iLC sale.

It is in-stock as of the time of writing. I’m including this phrase in the Canon refurbished deal posts because some of the offers they have there are “out of stock” and cannot be ordered. By typing it in, it’s another safeguard in preventing me from posting unpurchasable deals ๐Ÿ™‚

UPDATE: but if you want a “take pictures with” kit, you can get it in either black or white for $399 with a 1-year warranty in manufacturer refurbished condition. Both colors are in-stock as of the time of writing.

Refurbished Canon M10 w/15-45 + 1-YR W for $329

Another sale promotion featuring 38 refurbished Canon DSLRs and MiLCs is now in-progress at the official Canon USA outlet store, offering 1-year warranties on their manufacturer refurbished products as usual.

If you are curious about the Canon mirrorless system, but don’t want to break the bank, one of these offers, in-stock as of the time of writing, is the manurefurb (new proposed LOL term for “manufacturer + refurbished”) Canon M10 with 15-45mm in the black or the white color scheme for $329.

This is an older model on its way out (no longer available at Adorama or B&H), but you can get it in new condition for $450 by Samy’s Camera thru Amazon. This was already off the radar when we posted the Mirrorless Price Chart in early November 2017.

There are so many refurbished sales at Canon I can’t process/post them all individually right now, so here is are the overview listing. I don’t know why they create so many listings, and I don’t know if there is complete or partial overlap between the categories. It is situations like these where it would really help if I was IBM’s Watson and could start 200 background process to sort it out!

There are so many things to post, so in order to save in the number of posts posted, I am grouping all the refurbished Canon EF-M sales from the official Canon USA outlet with a 1-year warranty into a single post:

+ refurbished EF-M 18-150mm f3.5-6.3 IS STM in black with FREE Lens Hood EW-60F for $280
++ in new condition at authorized dealers it is $500, eg Adorama (with freebies)

Pay $50 more to get either the Canon EVF-DC1 or Mount Adapter Together with Canon M6 Kit Purchaase

The Canon M6 dropped $100 since we posted the Mirrorless Price Charts, currently going for $680 body only and $800 with 15-45 at authorized dealers such as Amazon and Adorama.

But the official Canon USA outlet store has two optional combined purchase discounts on the new condition Canon M6 kits (not the refurbished). Thanks to a combined purchase discount, you can get either the EVF-DC1 for $50 more or the Mount Adapter (EF/S lenses to EF-M bodies) for $50 more. I don’t know if you can get both discounts if you add them all to your shopping cart.

Canon M100 with 15-45mm and EF-EOS M Mount Adapter (EF/EF-S lenses on EF-M bodies) for $550

And now to the Canon mirrorless system we go. The new condition Canon M100 with 15-45mm goes for $500 with some free accessories at authorized dealers such as Adorama.

However, if you also want to buy the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS M together with the camera, the official Canon USA store’s Pre-Black Friday sale has a promotion that gets you a $150 off combined purchase discount if you buy together in the same shopping cart:

+ new condition Canon M100 with 15-45mm
+ new condition Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS M (allows Canon EF or EF-S lenses to be mounted on EF-M mirrorless cameras)

This offer is mentioned on the product pages of both eligible cameras and the Mount Adapter.

The price math is this: $500 + $200 – $150 = $550 total.
