Canon, Nikon, Sony Deals Ending

Since this is timely, I’m interrupting the “usual stuff” on the blog to share…

Site sponsor B&H reports that a number of Canon, Nikon, and Sony promotion/rebate offers are ending*… and that they will not be extended. There are also rumors floating about that Canon is going to try to return to enforcing MAP (minimum advertised pricing) on their photography equipment in April, and that this could make it more difficult to find bargains for a while.

*IMPORTANT: The B&H website will NOT accept orders between Friday March 28 at 7:15 PM EDT and Saturday, March 19 at 8:45PM EDT. For many of you, this may make TODAY the final day to order!

Follow these links for full details.

Canon 6D DSLR and 24-105mm Lens Bundle Deal

I just got an email from B&H Photo about a special bundle pricing on the Canon EOS 6D DSLR bundled with the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens$500 off at $1999. (The initial price on the landing page will appear to be $2499—the discounted price appears after you add the product to your shopping cart.)

The 6D is Canon’s excellent full frame DSLR which produces photographic quality essentially equivalent to that of the more expensive 5DIII. The 24-105mmm f/4L IS lens (which I own) is a fine and versatile lens for a wide range of types of photography. The combination is the core of a fine system for many photographers. If you have been considering moving the the full-frame 6D, this sounds like a great deal.

By the way, a few years back I wrote that it would not be all that long before high quality full frame DSLRs would be available in the price range of what were then the high end crop sensor bodies – like today’s 7D. Well, considering what the list price is of this lens alone, we are now there and more!

Black Friday: Fujifilm X-E1 With Lens at $899

Fujifilm X-E1 with kit lens

Site affiliate B&H Photo just sent me a link to a lower $899 price on the bundle that includes Fujifilm X-E1 camera and the 18-55mm lens. This model was well over $1000 with this lens a few months ago (perhaps $1399?) and has recently been reduced to $999. The “black Friday” price for the Fujifilm X-E1 with the 18-55 lens at B&H is now only $899 – plus it also includes a shoulder bag, a 16GB memory card and a 6% “reward” offer. If you want to give the Fujifilm X-series cameras a try, this seems like a really great deal to me. (I have this camera and this lens, and I’ve written extensively about this gear.)

(I think that this deal can be combined with the Fujifilm X-Series Lens Bundle Discounts that was announced a few days ago – giving $100-$250 additional savings on lenses purchased with the camera/lens bundle. Check this on the B&H web site – it was available a couple of days ago, but these things change quickly sometimes.)

Discounts on Fujifilm X-E1, X-Pro1, and Fujifilm lenses

The camera/lens bundle deals on Fujifilm X-Series camera lenses have returned. The timing couldn’t be better, as I just posted my extensive review of my Fujifilm X-E1 and lenses two days ago: “Taking Stock of the Fujifilm X-E1 Mirrorless Camera.” (Earlier posts on this camera system include “Fujifilm X-E1: From DSLR to Mirrorless” and “More Thoughts About the Fujifilm X-E1.”)

If you are considering getting the X-E1 or  X-Pro1, this is a great opportunity to up save up to $300 on Fujifilm X-E1/X-Pro 1 cameras and a lens. If you need to buy more than one lens, the discounts can be “stacked” to include up to 5 lenses, with potential savings of up to $1050. Few may actually buy all five of the eligible lenses, but there are several ways in which three lenses can make a very versatile starting kit.
