This isn’t the typical post here, but today only there is a great deal on the X-Rite i1 Display One Pro calibration system at site-affiliate B&H Photo. The device calibrates computer and other monitors and projectors and has a bunch of other useful features that I won’t list here. If you need such device, this sounds like a great time to get it. Here are the details:
Big savings on X-Rite i1 Display One Pro calibration system at B&H — Regular price $249. $95 off right now makes the cost $154. An additional $25 mail-in rebate brings your final cost to only $129! VERY LIMITED TIME OFFER – ENDS AT MIDNIGHT EST TODAY or when supplies run out. This unit calibrates a wide range of monitors and projection systems.
Note the VERY LIMITED DURATION of this offer. It ends tonight at midnight EST or sooner if supplies run out. Now, off to see about ordering… ;-)
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!
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!

* The process for getting the listed “final costs” above requires several steps. First, use the links to go to the B&H page where you’ll see the regular list price. Add the item to your cart and a new, lower price will appear. Then make sure to download the Canon mail-in rebate form, read the terms, and then fill it out carefully and mail it after you receive your lens.
(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.)
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.
