Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens for $83 (limit 5; maybe Imported/Grey)

To Los eBay Deals we geaux, where we find the Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens offered for $83 with free shipping, in new condition, by Red Tag Camera, with a limit of five per buyer. There is no mention of a warranty, so to be on the safe side, assume it is a gray market (imported model). Still for many this may be a reasonable risk, a double figured simple prime lens is a much smaller risk than a complicated four figures lens. But it’s up to you – we blog, you decide!… Separately there is a promotion that saves you $5 for every 3 eligible items you buy, all offered by Red Tag Camera – you will see this offer right above the product picture over there…

There are lots of mounts and similar-product promotions of the “buy two or more, get 10% off” kind. Page down over there to see them all.

Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 Macro HSM OS for $250 (C/N/A/P)

More action at the eBay Deals, this time we find the new condition Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 Macro HSM OS lens offered for $250 with free shipping by BuyDig on eBay. It is available in the Nikon, Canon, Sony-Alpha-Minolta, and Pentax K SLR mounts. Limit five per buyer.

Sony A77 II and A58 combined purchase discounts with select Lenses [and coupons]

A new variation of the combined purchase instant rebates is running for a couple of Sony Alpha pellicle-mirror dSLRs. You put one DSLR and one lens in your shopping cart, you enter the coupon code, and when you reach the checkout page, there is a combined purchase discount of $100 (either the 55-200 or 55-300 lenses) or $200 (the 18-135mm lens). This is a one-to-one promotion. If you put two lenses and/or two DSLRs and enter their coupons, you only get one discount. But you can buy them in separate transactions (I think – I obviously can’t buy them to test those type of limits).

So the eligible DSLRs for this promotion are the Sony a77 Mark II (either body only or with 16-50mm f2.8), and the A58 with 18-55mm kit. The coupon codes are listed over there. I won’t listen here because sometimes they change them, and I have no way of knowing that they changed.

The page does not specify an expiration date, so they are good until the coupon codes no longer work. Speaking of which, here is a screenshot crop example with the A58 w/18-55 and the 18-135mm added to the shopping cart. What you see is the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page:
