In-Stock Oddities: USED New Sony a7r III body for $3200 (updated)

UPDATE 12/12/17 at 10:20am ET
Stranger in a stranger land. Now the same seller has a USED listing through Amazon which says it is brand new. Here’s a screenshot…

This is bizarre, I’d say wait for the more well-known retailers to have it in-stock 🙂

ORIGINAL POST
I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and there are some promising news, the camera is shown as in-stock for its starting price of $3200 by seller “Cardinal Photo” through Amazon. This ships directly from Cardinal Photo, and it is not eligible for Prime shipping.

The shipping estimates will vary depending on how near/far you are to the shipping routes as they intersect with Cardinal’s location.

In-Stock Now: Sony 16/1.4 DC DN (E, m43) and Canon 135/4L TS-E Macro Tilt-Shift Lens

More new lenses are now in-stock and ready to ship at B&H Photo, let’s round them all together for a 2-for-1 in blog post savings 🙂

+ Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN for $449 in Sony E and Micro Four Thirds

+ Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro Tilt-Shift Lens for $2199
+ yes, the dream of the 90s is alive, macro tilt-shift for the EF system!
+ the other two are still in pre-order status: TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro Tilt-Shift and TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro Tilt-Shift. Each going for $2199. A used Honda Civic gets you all three 🙂

Now shipping: Canon D-Rebel T6 in Gray (with 18-55 IS STM)

For collectors and completists mayhaps, of fans of all things gray, the official Canon USA store now has in-stock the Canon D-Rebel T6 in a Gray color scheme bundled with the standard 18-55 IS STM lens for $400. This is an available alert of a limited edition color, not a deal!

It kinda looks nice:

In-Stock Now: Olympus 45mm f1.2 PRO [m43]

I am posting as fast I can type, although how fast I can think is the limiting factor here 🙂 Prime your E-system cameras! The new condition Olympus 45mm f1.2 ED PRO lens is in-stock and shipping at B&H Photo at its starting price of $1199 with free expedited shipping.

The lens is not on the list of the Olympus Black Friday lenses but since these start on Thursday, you may want to add it to your shopping cart and wait until the Black Friday Olympus deals go live in case it gets discounted. It is unusual for a “just released” professional tier product to get discounted, but Thursday is just 11 hours away in the Eastern Time Zone 🙂

Now shipping: Canon G1X III for $1300

Canon abandoned their once storied G-series of RAWsumers, but thankfully the grown-ups prevailed and the G-series was brought back bigger and stronger!

B&H Photo is out of the gate first, Amazon’s estimate is November 30, and Adorama is in pre-order status.

OR for the price of $1300, you can instead buy five manufacturer refurbished Canon G9X rawsumers ($250 each), and still have money left for a nice dinner 🙂

In-Stock Alert: Firefox 57 (Windows) blazing fast browser

We have an in-stock alert of a different kind! Version 57 of Firefox for Windows is now out, and it’s a blazer. This time for real! This was a long-planned version to de-slugfest-ify Firefox and it’s working so far. Very noticeable difference in speed! Only issue is that the “New Tab” page is pre-populated with crap, but you can quickly remove them by clicking on the Settings Wheel (from the New Tab page) and unclicking the five things that are defaulted on).

More details on the new release via Techmeme including a profile of the new developments at C|Net.

Now shipping: Sony RX0 Action RAWsumer

In a galaxy not-so-far-away, the white Canon SL2 with the 18-55 f4-5.6 IS STM EF-S lens is now in-stock and ready to ship at its authorized dealer price of $699 at Adorama and B&H Photo. Meanwhile at Amazon it is in the all-encompassing “Temporarily out of stock” status.

PS: there is a reason these posts (that are triggered by the price-charts price-checking) are in reverse alphabetical order. I’m following the order of the cameras in the spreadsheet 🙂

A stylus is not included. It is available for $99 on its own [in-stock; limit 3], or in bundles with the stylus which are +$100 than the Pixelbook on its own.

This is obviously a premium device as a ChromeDroid flagship, but if you prefer a more bang-for-the-buck approach, the Samsung Chromebook PRO goes for $500 and a stylus is included.

Speaking of Samsung, we have the first “Amazon itself” token discount of the Galaxy Note 8 (unlocked, USA warranty) for $937~ instead of $950. The important thing here is that the discounting process has began, not that a $13 discount will sway millions to buy it 🙂

In-Stock Now: Zeiss Milvus 25mm f1.4 for $2399 [C/N]

Prime time of the Milvus kind! The new Zeiss Milvus 25mm f1.4 lens is now in-stock and ready to ship for $2399 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo in the Canon ZE and Nikon ZF.2 options.

In-Stock Now: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Factory Unlocked USA version) for $950

Flagship time! Hide your wallets! The new condition factory-unlocked USA version with USA warranty of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone flagship with dual OIS back cameras, in the Orchid Gray color scheme, is, as of the time of writing, in-stock and ready to ship to your front door for $950 at Amazon by Amazon itself. The other color (“Midnight Black”) is only in-stock by 3rd-party sellers.

It is very important when buying phones at Amazon to pay attention to the seller of record and the listing, and also double-check to verify. It is chaos and disorder when it comes to the 3rd-party sellers over there 🙂

But that’s not all. If “Orchid Gray” is not your thing, and you are comfortable with International Variants (not the US model with US warranty but compatible with some GSM carriers – check carrier and frequencies before buying), the “Maple Gold” is in-stock for $950 at B&H Photo, while the “Midnight Black” goes for $1000. These are International versions!

The US versions are not yet in-stock at B&H Photo. B&H Photo will begin accepting orders again Saturday night, so they won’t sell out, giving you time to research the phones 🙂
