Canon EF-M Adapter for EF/EF-S Lenses (White Box) for $32

The Canon EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF and EF-S Lenses, model 6098B002, is new condition as a White Box product, is offered for $32 by a couple of 3rd-party sellers with the order fulfilled by Amazon so it is eligible for free 2-day Prime shipping. Non-Prime members need an order of $35+ to get free shipping (three of these tiny AB camera cases will do it, currently $1.47 each).

White box is often used to describe situations when a lens or something else is removed from a kit or a bundle and sold separately. When a kit is significantly discounted, some retailers “break it” (aka the term “broken kit”), and sell, for example, the camera and lens separately for a slightly higher price.

PS: “broken kit” is a rather unfortunate term, how many consumers will get excited when they hear something they are about to buy described as “broken”? 🙂
