Tuesday: Rokinon 24mm f2.8 Auto Focus (Sony E) for $269

If you are Starbucks Rewards member, Tuesday is Double Stars day, but of more on-topic interest, Adorama is running a snapshot / daily-deal with a 24 hour countdown on the new condition Rokinon 24mm f2.8 Auto Focus lens for the Sony E system for $269 with free US shipping. On the same listing you will also find options with free Mac or PC software BUT those are selling at the regular price of $349, not the sale price of $269.

+ Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 for $899 for the Sony E system

In other daily deals action, at the Amazon USA Gold Box there’s a sale of Estalon laptop bags, an Audeze gaming headphone for $299, a Roomba 860 for $270, and of more practical and mundane interest, various Gilette razors and blades…

Meanwhile at the Best Buy dailies the headliner is the new condition 12.3″ Surface PRO, 6th generation, going for $699. This is without the Pen and without the keyboard-case-thing. It has 8GB RAM (which should really be minimum for any Windows computer without a single core processor), 128GB SSD, Core i5 processor, and things like that…

Having said that, the promise and premise of a Surface is kinda defeated when it is sold without the pen and keyboard-cover ~ you are essentially buying an expensive Windows tablet. When you add the Type Cover, the Pen, and the Moon Dial, the prices goes up up and away.

On the other hand, Surface fans can become Surface households, so they may already have the necessary accessories and they just need more devices. Oops, this is turning into an out of control post, so the time is writing to stop writing in this post, stop writing NOW 🙂
