Hooray hooray, we have a LENS DAY at the B&H Photo daily deals good until 11:59pm ET (or earlier if sold out):

+ Tokina 24-70mm f2.8 PRO FX for $579 in the Canon EF system

UPDATE #1: the headliner of the Best Buy dailies is the 12.3″ Surface PRO 7 (latest model) going for $559 (i3 10th gen, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD), while the i5 with 8GB RAM option goes for $799 and the 256GB option has an Apple-esque +$100 price increase… While the $559 price may be tempting, keep in mind that this is Windows, so get the 4GB version only if you plan to use it in a way that can survive with 4GB of RAM…

Among the rest of the Big Yellow dailies there’s a 1TB Sandisk Extreme USB-C SSD for $125 [Conspiracy Theory Alert: just when the prices of the HDD crashed down, of course the next big thing became SSDs and Encrypted so the price points would go up!], and the 64GB Sandisk Extreme Plus microSDXC for $20, and no, that Duke Canon thing may look like AA batteries in the pictures above but it’s a lip balm type thing 🙂

UPDATE #2: the current Adorama dailies [I forgot to post them earlier] include the ORLIT 250 KWIK Series Studio Flash With Bowens S Mount for $100 and a Swann Wifi pan-and-tilt PTCAM for $43… These change on Thursday at 10am eastern [or earlier if sold out]…

Offers good until 11:59pm ET on Thursday 12/10/20 or earlier for any item that may sell out ahead of its designated expiration time [needless to say, flash deals last only a few hours each]:

+ Tokina 17-35mm f4 PRO FX for $379 in the Nikon F system only
+ the Canon EF version remains at $450
+ this is not to be confused with the upcoming Tokina ATX-i 17-35mm f4 (pre-orders for $599 in C/N)
+ I triple-checked, this is indeed Tokina, not Tamron!
+ why do I triple-check? Because I often type the wrong name among those two 🙂

+ as of the time of writing, the processor ranks #458 at cpubenchmark.net
+ personally I prefer to get a system with a Top 500 processor, and slightly above my current needs so it can “survive” the never-ending sprawl/slow-down of OS and software and websites over time
+ plus: it has the latest protocols (Wifi 6 and Bluetooth 5), USB-C/Thunderbolt, IPS, 100% sRGB, fingerprint, backlit keyboard
+ only major thing missing is a touchscreen (considering the price)

+ AngelBird AtomX SSDmini (1TB) for $299
+ just so we are clear, it’s neither an Angel, nor a Bird, it’s Storage 🙂

+ Vello ShutterBoss II Timer Remote for $30 in seven options for various cameras/systems

+ flash deal: Gefen GTV-DIGAUD-2-AAUD Stereo Digital-to-Analog Audio Converter for $30
+ next flash deal: Acebil I-705DX Prosumer Tripod System

Hooray, hooray it’s a LENS DAY at the B&H daily deals, more specifically for Canon EF fans [and those with the appropriately compatible adapters), it is the new condition Tokina 24-70mm f2.8 PRO FX going for $599 with free US shipping. Only the Canon EF is on sale, not the Nikon…

UPDATE: in other deal du jour action, at the Best Buy offers you can haz the 512GB Sandisk Extreme microSDXC (A2, U3, V30, UHS-I, Z5, Y65, N-I-34, RR44, etc) for $120 with the usual Shutterfly freebie/coupon…

Among the Woot dailies they have the Essential 360 camera (with its matching case) going for $140 [under “Electronics”] {the Essential was a flash-in-the-pan Android phone}, while at “Computers” they have 12.5″ Mobile Pixels portable monitors for $200… I am a big fan of ChromeBooks [despite Google’s data-creepiness] but the offer under “Clearance” for $150 is a BAD ONE!. It’s an old refurbished 11.6″ Samsung Chromebook with 2GB RAM, no touchscreen, 16GB on-board storage, old Exynos 5250 processor, ports on the back instead of the sides, no more OS updates [platform expired already in 2018]. This was my first Chromebook purchased *GASP* eight years ago, but despite the emotional attachment (?!?!?!?!) it’s a big NO for 2020 [there are so many newer options out there!].

UPDATE #2: the current Adorama daily deal (changes Thursday 10am ET) is the Green Extreme CB12 Compact Battery Pack for Sony Flashes offered for $20 with free US shipping….

PS: the usual blanket caveat, the names “Tamron” and “Tokina” are so close I often confuse them, so this is a blanket correction for past, present, future, alternate realities, Westworld simulations, and higher dimension posts 😉
