FREE to Watch Streaming Class Starts 12pm ET: Nikon Lenses the Complete Guide

IF you are curious about the Nikon lens line-up, set your alarm clocks! Starting at 12pm eastern today (Saturday 3/17/18; I often type the date to make sure I know what day and date it is LOL) streaming for FREE is a repeat of the class by John Greengo (the CreativeLIVE Tech/Gadget Guy) Nikon Lenses the Complete Guide. The class will repeat overnight until 12pm eastern the next day, so if you are busy earlier on Saturday, you can watch it later. Much cheaper than movie tickets + popcorn + soda 🙂

This is among the classes free-streaming at the CreativeLIVE On-AIR. Yesterday I forgot to check, and of course they were running the Canon Lenses the Complete Guide. This is streaming until 12pm ET today. I don’t know if they plan to stream it again for Saturday. Some of the rebroadcasts run on back to back days, others are single day.

A variety of DSLRs and lenses are participating, including the free battery grip promotions for the Nikon D500 kits and the Nikon D810 kits and the Nikon D750 kits.

No free battery grip for the D850. I suspect some photographers would be willing to give Nikon a battery grip for a chance to get the D850 🙂 Speaking of the D850, I just rechecked, it remains in pre-order/backorder at B&H and Adorama, and at the all-encompassing and all-frustrating when you are waiting for a new camera to arrive “temporarily out of stock” at Amazon.

KEH Weekly USED Coupon Deals: Used Nikon D80 Body for $74+, Pentax 55/1.8 Takumar M43 for $23 to $42

A new week has arrived which means another round of featured USED Weekly Sales at KEH has been added. These are eligible for 25% off with permanent coupon KEHDEALS and continue until Friday night of the same week (eg Friday 9/29/17 in this case).

This week includes:

+ USED Nikon D80 body only starting at $74~ in “BGN” condition and going up in “EX” and “EX+” conditions

+ USED Pentax 55mm F/1.8 SMC Takumar M42 Screw Mount Manual Focus Lens starting at $23 in “BGN” with some damage and going up to $42 in “EX” condition

Used Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR for $120

Continuing to dig into the Bargain Bin, as of the time of writing, there is one listing of the Used Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR lens, in “Used – Like New” condition [no further details given] going for $120~ with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.

This lens currently goes for $350 on its own in new condition, but it’s frequently bundled with more recent Nikon DSLR two lens kit, so the $350 price is a bit misleading in terms of its effective street market price.

(ENDED) 12% off Nikon Lenses, 8% off Nikon Cameras, 15% off Accessories

This 1-day coupon expired… If you missed it, fear not ~ KEH has coupons on a regular basis…
