As usual, the Fri-YAY B^H daily deals are good until Saturday at 11:59pm ET with the caveat that their website does not accept orders Friday PM to Saturday PM (check their website for exact hours):

+ Bower 500mm f8 Manual Focus T-Mount Lens for $79
+ B&H Photo has T-mount adapters for just about any camera system, with the more popular systems obviously having more options (eg EF, F, M43) but you can also find options for the “Nu Mirrorless” (name I just came up for the new Nikon and Canon and Pana-Leica-Sigma full-frame mirrorless) and old rangefinders, and many things in between
+ B&H currently has adapters for 31 systems with a total of 144 options from 23 makers including KIPON, Fotodiox, Novoflex, Vivitar, lens-maker name-brand (Leica, Tokina, Schneider), astro-telescopy companies, etc…
+ prices range from $8 (Vivitar for M43rds) to $175 (Leica digiscoping adapter)
+ the T-mount adapters are not part of the daily deal, I’m mentioning them for anyone who may want to buy the lens at the sale price and pair them with their camera system(s)
