72 Hour NewEgg Sale includes imported Sigma 17-50/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD (EF) for $280

If you are a fan of The Way of the Egg, NewEGG has launched another 72 hour sale. As usual, some of the offers may require a promo code (it will tell you on the page), and most of the time you’ll have to give them an email address in order to use the promo code. Which is kinda goofy since you need an email address to create an account and buy things, but what do I know? ๐Ÿ™‚

They feature the usual assortment of computer accessories, hardware, software and so forth AND one lens, the new condition imported grey-market Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD in the Canon EF option for $280 with free shipping, sold by RedTag Camera through NewEgg (ships directly from RedTag Camera). This particular sale ends on Saturday night.

Sigma 135mm f1.8 ART for $1097 (Nikon) or $1140 (Canon)

When the Amazon Price Bots play their game of thrones, you win sometimes because Amazon’s own price drops to match some of the 3rd-party sellers. Such is the case at the moment for the new condition Sigma 135mm f1.8 ART lens. You can get it for $1097 with free shipping in the Nikon F system and $1140 in the Canon EF system. These links point to Amazon’s own listing. Other 3rd-party sellers offer them there for less, but they don’t look like authorized dealers or recognizable names.

Limit three of each per customer. As this is a random Price Bot price-match, the price can change at any point in time. Amazon’s price bots work in mysterious ways ๐Ÿ™‚
