The lens goes for $1399 on its own, and the Marumi filter goes for $299 on its own, so you are getting a $200 combined purchase discount. The glasses are just $5, so they are a rounding error considering the price 🙂

The above link points to the Canon version, but this offer is also available for the Sony A version and the Nikon F version.

PRO TIP: if you are not familiar with the B&H Photo website, locate the “In the Box” section on the right hand side of their website, further down, to see what items are included with your purchase.

If you don’t want/need the Marumi filter, the lens without the two “solar accessories” is bundled with typical lens-y free accessories at Adorama (Corel software, filter kit, etc).
