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

You need to be a Prime member to get the sale price. If you are not, but you like the price when it goes live, you can start a 30 day free trial. Just make sure you put an alert in your calendar to cancel it if you don’t fall into the trap that millions of paying Prime subscribers fell into. Which is why they are very generous with the 30-day trials because a very satisfactory [for their accountants] percentage appears to become paying members for life (or at least for many years)…

If you are shopping in the European market, one of the Amazon Germany deals of the day is a photography lighting products. Shock and awe! It’s the new condition GEEKOTO Softbox Set Fotostudio going for 51 euro. This being a heavy product [shipping weight 4.3 kilos (around 9 lbs)], shipping costs may be prohibitive unless you are in the free shipping zone (Germany, Austria, etc)… Also there you can get the AUKEY mechanical LED-illuminated keyboard for 42.50 euro but note that this is the German QWERTZ configuration, not the “normal” QWERTY configuration…

Meanwhile the headliner Woot deal du jour is a big iPhone sale going from 7 to 11 in options. WWDC is next week though, so if you must need not get one right now, you may want to see what Apple is …COOKing this TIMe (surely I’m not the first one to do this “hidden” Tim Cook thing?)

Apple also leads the way at the Best Buy daily deals with a 15.4-inch MacBook PRO sale…

SSD prices have dropped enough where you don’t have to settle for the 64GB or the 128GB options. One of the Friday NewEGG daily deals [remember these start at 3am eastern] is the 512GB HP S700 PRO 2.5″ SATA III 3D NAND internal SSD going for $60…

Samyang/Rokinon 85mm 1.4 MF lenses start at $248 [m43], $259 [X, K], $269 [Z], Etc

IF the new $399 Rokinon 85mm f1.4 II manual focus lenses do not tempt you and you want to optimize for a lower price, $269 is what it takes to get into the new condition Samyang 85mm f1.4 MF lens with the Nikon Focus Confirm

The other Samyang and Rokinon 85mm f1.4 options [look for them in the aforelinked search results]:

+ M43rds for $248
+ Pentax K mount and Fuji X for $259
+ Nikon Z for $269
+ Sony E for $299
+ Canon RF for $319
+ the search results also include the Auto Focus (AF) lenses which obviously cost double or more

I know, I know, it is 2020, some of you will argue, there’s no way I’m dealing with Manual Focus Lenses in 2020. Next thing you’re gonna tell me to buy a Huawei P40 phone and spend 20 hours every single frakking week hunting for new hacks and loopholes to run Google Play on them πŸ˜‰

And you would be right if your typical subject matter or your style of photography requires autofocus. But a lot of things don’t move at all, others move in predictable ways, and in these COVID-stressful times there’s a certain level of relaxation and grounding when you use manual focus. And in some ways, it forces you to pay closer attention to the scene you are photographing…
