Prime Day: Rokinon and Samyang Lenses on sale (139 options)

Prime lenses for Prime members! Most of these lenses show the regular price with verbiage that says “save an additional 20%” for Prime members, so keep that in mind when you are looking at the search-index listing pages below. Or add them to the shopping cart.

For example, the first lens in the Samyang listing below is a $629 14/2.8 AF (RF) lens. If you are a Prime member and you add it to cart, you will pay 20% off that price, making it $500 and something

A total of 139 prime Rokinon and Samyang lenses of all kinds are on sale during Prime festivities. I obviously cannot list them all, so I will not list any of them per the Fairness Doctrine πŸ˜‰

+ 20% off 94 Rokinon Lenses

+ 20% off 45 Samyang Lenses

+ note that the numbers are lens options, meaning that if a particular Samyang lens is made for five different mounts, it shows as five separate listings, so it counts as five of the 45 above

Heads Up: Nikon D5600 among the Monday daily deals

This is a heads up alert! Among the teasers for the Monday 3/22/21 daily deals at the NewEgg website they show the Nikon D5600. The teasers over there do not point to actual product pages, so I do not know which kit will be offered and who will be the seller.

The daily deals at NewEgg go live at 12am pacific time, aka 3am eastern time (on Monday 3/22/21 in our case)…

A reasonable guess is that it might be the standard “with 18-55” kit, and as far as the seller, a number of the cameras offered in the NewEgg dailies are international/grey-market. Lower chances it might be refurbished or new (USA warranty) or open-box.

But of course I’m only guessing since the teaser does not show more, and I don’t remember if the D5600 was previously offered as a daily deal at NewEgg. If it had and I remembered, there could be reasonable chances that it is recurring. Sort of like the refurbished Sony H300 superzoom for $85 by a marketplace seller that returns every few days/weeks…

Tokina 17-35mm f4 ATX-i FF lens w/FREE 82mm VND Filter for $499 [C/N], etc
