Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD with FREE Hoya 82mm Filter + $32 Rewards for $799 [C/N]

I couldn’t decide between a tummy and a Tammy Wynette intro for this deal, so let’s just pretend I wrote something funny and move on to the deal 🙂

The new condition Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens is bundled with a FREE Hoya 82mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter and 4% promotional rewards (about $32 to be spent in future purchases) at B&H Photo in your choice of Canon or Nikon systems.

Note that the lens on sale is the first generation. The latest model is the G2 from Tamron which goes for $1199 in Canon and Nikon (without rewards or free Hoya filter).

I’m sure Pentax and Sony A shooters would love an $800 lens of this kind as well but is only a Canikon lens 🙁 At least the Pentax 24-70mm f2.8 is $1100, unlike Canon and Nikon who double or triple that amount.
