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.

Refurbished Olympus F2.8 PRO Zoom Trio Back In-Stock

The more doorbustery refilled offers at the Olympus Outlet store are sold out as of this recheck, but the trio of professional f2.8 zoom lenses are back in-stock, in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 90-day Olympus USA warranty as follows:

Refurbished Olympus 300mm f4 IS PRO for $2125

A surprise PRO lens also made its appearance at the official Olympus Outlet store, it is the manufacturer refurbished Olympus M.Zuiko ED 300mm f4.0 IS PRO going for $2125 with a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.

This is a “miracle lens” as it has Optical Image Stabilization, a rarity for Olympus M43rds lenses since their camera body had embraced sensor-shift stabilization a few digital-centuries ago.

The price is a close call though, in new condition at authorized deals such as Adorama and B&H Photo it goes for $2500 with $100 promotional rewards.

This in-stock in “extremely limited availability” per the listing…

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).

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 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)

Used Bower 14mm T3.1 Cine for $140 [Sony E/NEX]

Back to the Bargain BIN deep cuts, the Bower Super-Wide 14mm T3.1 Digital Cine Lens for Sony E (NEX), model SLY14VDSE, is available in “USED – Like New” condition, with a more detailed description and a gallery of pictures of the used item, going for $147 with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. This is the only option that’s available at this price!

PS: the one 1-star review there is from someone who received the wrong model.

Used Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR for $120

Continuing to dig into the Bargain Bin, as of the time of writing, there is one listing of the Used Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR lens, in “Used – Like New” condition [no further details given] going for $120~ with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.

This lens currently goes for $350 on its own in new condition, but it’s frequently bundled with more recent Nikon DSLR two lens kit, so the $350 price is a bit misleading in terms of its effective street market price.

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.

Pre-order Lensbaby Sweet 80 Optic for $200

Lensbabies are multiplying like bunnies these days. The new Lensbaby Sweet 80 Optic is available for pre-ordering for $200. This if you already have a compatible Lensbaby “Lens Body”.

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.

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.

Panasonic 25mm f1.7 with Extras for $148 [m43] {updated}

If you are looking for a budget “normal” Micro Four Thirds lens, the Panasonic 25mm f1.7 lens continues to go for $148 with free shipping in new condition at authorized dealers, but that’s not all. Some of them are offering extras!

This sale continues as of 9/17/17 recheck: you can instead get 4% promotional rewards (around $6~ towards future purchases) at B&H Photo.

As of a 9/17/17 recheck, the price returned to $250… At Adorama you get the Corel Software Bundle (five software titles), and a 3-piece filter kit with case, a lens wrapper, tether, and cleaning kit.

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 🙂
