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

Prime Day: Rokinon Lenses and NatGeo Tripods

As part of the Prime Day 2021 festivities, Amazon has a Photography & Outdoorsy sale (two pages of options) with 35 options including the following Rokinon lenses:

+ Rokinon 12mm f2 for $175 in Sony E NEX

EU Prime Day Camera Gear: Canon, Sony, Pentax, Samyang, Zeiss Batis, Panasonic S5, Storage, Etc

It’s already Prime Day in Europe and at the Amazon Germany website there’s among others a Canon gear sale that includes the 90D, the G3X, and lenses of different kinds (EF, EF-S, EF-M, RF)… A total of nine options is available as of the time of writing…

But that’s not all! There’s also a big (two page) Sony-priority camera gear sale that includes various Sony lenses, the RX100 III, the 7R II body only, lenses from Samyang, Zeiss Batis, Pentax (eg 50/1.8 SMC DA for 100 euro), and Tamron, Panasonic S5, Steiner binos, and more!

There’s also a sale of action cameras and drones

Next up we have the Storage Sale that includes Sandisk SD and microSD, Samsung, Lexar, Axe and more, three pages of them! There’s even some CompactFlash UDMA7 of the Lexar kind!

The interesting thing with Prime, even if you live in a country that does not get Prime delivery (eg within the scope of Amazon Germany), you can still sign up for the 30-day Prime free trial and get the sale price. But you won’t get the free shipping benefits or any of the other DRM-restricted benefits (video, ebooks, etc)…

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
