Zeiss Lens Sale (68 options) [C/N/E/X/M]

But until then (mayhaps don’t hold your breath) there is a sale of 68 Zeiss Lens options at B&H Photo.

[DEAD?] Waiting List OPEN: Nikon D3400 with 18-55 DX VR for $315 [Prime only]

UPDATE 10:51am ET: it looks like this deal is dead…

UPDATE 9:15am ET: this switches like a Yo-Yo between Waiting List FULL or OPEN. It may continue like this for a while…

UPDATE 9am ET: the Waiting List is now OPEN, so you can join the wait. There’s still no guarantee you will get a shot at it, but if you are gonna be near the internet, you can give it a shot…

As of 8:11am eastern, this is “100% Claimed” and “Waiting List Full” but the offer runs until the end of the day, so if you want to try to play the waiting game, you may get a shot at it. People have 15 minutes to get it once it is in their shopping cart. If they don’t get it, it goes to the next person in the Waiting List. As the 15 minute blocks go by with un-purchased units, more spots open up in the Waiting List. But there’s no guarantee you will get it because they have a finite number of items available for each lightning deal…

With that out of the way, it’s the new condition Nikon D3400 with 18-55 DX VR going for $315. Prime members only as usual…
