AND now lettuce take a look at the world of Sony E-system full frame cameras with the a7 III body only offered for $1498 as body only and $1698 with the 28-70mm at authorized Sony dealers.

Then there’s the optional $50 mail-in rebate for registering the camera with Sony. You can upload the barcodes and receipt but the $50 will be mailed to you in 6-8 weeks as a physical prepaid VISA card. Thus the “mail-in” part. Good luck 🙂 This promotion covers a lot of Sony gear, $50 per item.

MEANwhile at Adorama, you have four different options of bundles.

FREEbies including a 64GB Extreme SDXC, camera bag, Tripod, charger stuff, remote shutter releases, Corel software, and more!

ON the same listings above, you will also find the “with 16-50mm” kit for $897, and for this, B&H has FREEbies (64GB Extreme PRO and bag), while Adorama has its usual Accessorapalooza!

Fascinating how Canon and Nikon managed to have between them eight different active camera systems 🙂

Panasonic G9 with 12-60/3.5-5.6 for $650

You would think that camera doorbusters are a thing of the past in these days of MAP and smartphones and action-cams and drones but NO! Amazon comes to the rescue, they are offering, for a limited time, the new condition Panasonic G9 with 12-60/3.5-5.6 (DC-G9MK) for $650. This is a M43rds camera that was announced in December 2017.

This kit is not available at B&H and Adorama. They have the body only for $900 with a free battery grip.

Thanks to this offer it is currently the #1 in the top selling Mirrorless cameras.

PS: keep in mind, these days of chaotic listings, the Amazon Top Seller charts are only as good as the categorization of various products. So it’s not uncommon to see “uncanon” products in the charts.

PS2: regular readers of this blog may recall that many years ago we used to traverse the best seller charts (when the categorization was more organized – mayhaps human-controlled vs AI?) and create weekly “Top Seller” posts. Those were the days 🙂

+ Nikon Z cameras sale, seven options

+ Canon Lenses and Binos sale, 17 options

Panasonic S5 with 20-60 and 85mm for $1700 [NEW] [PD]

It looks like when I saw it yesterday, it was having the old price, but today the new condition Panasonic S5 two lens kit with the 20-60mm and 85mm lenses is on sale for $1700 by Amazon itself, as part of the Prime Dayz of October 2023 sale!

IF you are not a Prime member and this looks like a good deal to you, you can start a 30-DAY FREE TRIAL and grab it!

Used Panasonic S5 two lens kit (20-60, 85) for $1388+

This offer is open to all! Let me explain…

As part of the Amazon Prime Deals, Amazon has a promotion on the Panasonic S5 two-lens kit with the 20-60mm and 85mm lenses. That price is nothing to write home about all things considered BUT if you don’t mind buying used, the used prices for this kit start at $1388 in “Used – Good” and $1449 in “Used – Very Good” and $1494 in “Used – Like New”. There’s also a “Used – Acceptable” for $1192 but no description of its condition. These are sold by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.

Considering the number of options in the listing, there’s always the possibility of a mix-up for the USED items. But when you add the two-lens kit to the shopping cart, it shows it’s the two lens kit. But you never know, so take screenshots and such to be on the safe side 🙂

Needless to say there are plenty of L-mount options these days, and buying THREE used items (camera and two lenses) together increases the risk of potential problems in at least one of them, so be sure to factor all that in.

Rokinon Xeen Meister T1.3 Primes Sale [EF/PL/E] [PD]

Another staple of Prime Dayz is the Rokinon Xeen T1.3 Primes sale featuring the Meister T1.3 Prime lenses at 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm, along with a trio of non-Meister primes. System options vary but the sale includes PL-mount, Canon EF, and Sony E.

Preorder the new irresistible Nikon Zf for $2000

Trigger warning: if you like sexy old-school style digital cameras, stop reading this as you may fall into a $2000 temptation 😉

Available for pre-ordering right now is the new Nikon Z f (Zf is a less goofy spelling in my opinion) mirrorless camera that wants to empty all your wallets! It is available for pre-ordering for $2000 as body only, or $2600 with the 24-70mm f4 lens or $2237 with the 40mm f2 lens.

Yes, slowly but steadily Nikon wants you to re-buy everything twice, in FX and DX, but in mirrorless this time 🙂

Pre-orders are accepted right now at B&H Photo and Adorama where you can optionally add the Nikon FTZ II adapter for +$150 as a bundle option.

Already plenty of reviewalia on the interwebs and also on the YouTube. YouTube-embedding below Kai W’s take. Let’s get him to 1 million subscribers! Trigger warning for US audiences, he says “Nikkkkon” and Zed 😉

OR time to buy some more laptops and tablets? 🙂

In-Stock Alert: Nikon Z8 starting at $4000

IF the Nikon Z8 is the mirror-nyet full-frame camera the one you want, you are in luck because it is now in-stock and ready to ship at Adorama and by various thru Amazon and at B&H Photo.

Some of the third-party accessories (SmallRig cages, 3Legged bracket, Ikelite underwater) are still in pre-order status.

The body only goes for $4000, the FTZ adapter can be added for +$150 to any kit, while the “take pictures with” kit with the 24-120mm f4 lens goes for $4900. Sadly there’s no 18-55 kit lens option ~ yes, you can be that ironic hipster photographer who carries a $4000 full-frame camera with a $100 18-55 DX non-VR lens attached to it 🙂

Optionally you can click on the “Build a Bundle” buttons at Ado and B&H for “combined purchase discounts” with other lenses and such.
