Pre-order new Nikon D5600 Books by Julie Adair King and by David Busch

This may be a first. The books for a camera are listed at Amazon before the camera itself! There’s two of them now! Julie Adair King’s “Nikon D5600 For Dummies” is available for pre-order in paperback for $30 with an April 17 (20170 release estimate, while David Busch’s Nikon D5600 guide is available for pre-order at Amazon for $40 with a May 19 in 2017 release date estimate. This is the paperback edition, under the RockyNook brand (not to be confused with the Barnes and Noble Nook). Amazon has a pre-order price-guarantee [see Details], so if the price drops until its release date, you will pay the lowest price during the time period between pre-order and release date.

PS: 3rd-party goofballs (okay, sellers) have created stub listings for the Nikon D5600 at Amazon, but Amazon’s own listing is not there yet.

Tokina 100mm f2.8 (Nikon) for $340 after $20 MIR [CORRECTED]

In-progress now is updating the Holiday Shopping Situation Room. I am removing both expired offers and also offers that lingered there since Cyber Monday. The idea is now that the Black-Cyber week is over, to make this more lightweight and robust.

That updating brought a new discount with it, in addition to the previously mentioned Canon D-Rebel drops, the Nikon mount version of the Tokina Tamron 100mm f2.8 (Nikon) is down to $340 after $20 MIR (mail-in rebate) at Adorama. It was $350 AR before. It also gets 4% promotional rewards, which dropped $0.40 since the price drop, now around $14.40~ to be used in future Adorama purchases.

BLANKET CORRECTION: this is a Tokina lens, not a Tamron lens. Who knows how many other times I wrote this as Tamron 🙂 Thanks to Mike for pointing it out in the comments! I always get Tamron and Tokina confused 🙂 Of all the names, they both picked six-character T-names with the only difference being two characters in each (“mr” vs “ki”).

Not a big discount but a discount it is, the Nikon version of the Tokina 100mm f2.8 AT-X PRO D lens is available for $350 after a $20 mail-in rebate (MIR) at Adorama. You also receive $15~ in promotional rewards to be used in future purchases at Adorama. The mail-in rebates expire 12/31/16.

One of the benefits of Canon/Nikon SLR systems is the abundance of 3rd-party lens options, from the perspective of photographers of other systems lamenting the lack of choices. On the other hand, it makes picking lenses easier 🙂

UPDATE: this is a Tokina lens, not a Tamron. It is now corrected! Thanks to Mike for pointing it out in the comments of another post. My Tamron/Tokina confusion is eternal 🙂
