Sunday also 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 8/25/17 in this case).
This week includes:
+ USED Canon 70-300mm F/4-5.6 IS USM EF starts at $193 after coupon
+ USED Mamiya RZ67 Medium Format Camera Body starts at $137+ after coupon
+ NOTE: the $72 option is AS IS (means usable for parts only. Equipment may or may not work. No warranty or return available)
+ also participating is a Mamiya Film Back and Film Insert
They come with a 180-day KEH warranty and hassle-free returns. “AS IS” items don’t have warranty and no returns. That’s partially why they sell for a lot less.
ON-GOING OVERSTOCK SALE
Not eligible for the coupon mentioned above, but KEH Camera also has an on-going OverStock Clearance sale with over 420 items currently participating.
Another discount among the used offerings at Amazon Warehouse Deals, there are three listings available in “Used Very Good” and “Used Like New” condition of the Nikon AF-P DX 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED non-VR lens with prices ranging from $114 to $120 for the “Used – Like New” condition. Given the price difference between them and the price difference between the new condition model, probably getting the best condition is a good idea!
PS: this listing shows all the used options.
Another one of the recent (re)arrivals at the Olympus USA Outlet store is the factory recondition Olympus M.Zuiko MSC ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 lens going for $150 with a 90-day Olympus USA warranty and a 30-day return policy as usual.
