Right now is a great time to buy that camera body or lens that you’ve been dreaming about because there are some AMAZING deals going on. In fact, I’ve been seeing my mailman more than anyone else because he is constantly delivering packages to my door. I’m just so excited to share these deals with you as well. Hopefully you can get in on these prices quick because who knows how long these offers will last. Prices are subject to and WILL change:
First of all, Amazon.com is offering 2% back in Rewards on a variety of cameras and lenses. This is regardless of if you have an Amazon Rewards Card or not. If you DO have an Amazon Rewards card, even better because that means you’ll get an additional 3% back that you ordinarily get on Amazon.com purchases.
On top of that, Canon is offering mail in rebates of up to $300 on over 25 different lenses. And while you don’t get the Amazon 2% back, Nikon and B & H are also offering major savings on Nikon products.
Below are just some of the deals I’m come across:
With the newly introduced Canon EOS 70D 20.2 MP Digital SLR Camera on the market, there are deep discounts on the Canon EOS 60D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera.
$599.00 Sale Price: $519 – 2% back in Amazon rewards.
Next is the Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens. A good 50mm prime lens is always a great lens to have in your kit, as it’s fairly cheap and most closely mimics the human perspective and field of view. At a wide aperture of 1.8, you can definitely create beautiful bokeh and the much desired shallow depth of field.
Sale Price: $109.00 – 2% back in Amazon rewards
Now, just take a look at the Amazon price graph from camelcamelcamel.com to see that this lens is at the lowest price it’s ever been since 2008! The time to buy is definitely now.
On Canon’s end, we have the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens. This too is a great prime lens with a wide aperture. Not to mention that it’s easily portable with its small and light structure. Don’t mistake this for poor quality though. The images produced from this lens are absolutely stunning.
$339.00 Sale Price: $298.99 – 2% back in Amazon rewards
If you’d prefer to hold off on buying gear and would rather continue to do research, a great resource would be the Popular Photography magazine. Right now, you can get a 1 year subscription at an incredible price. The sale is only on an auto renewal subscription, meaning that you’ll automatically be billed for another year once the 1 year subscription ends. Should you wish to discontinue the subscription after a year, Amazon makes cancelling your subscription easy to do with their subscription manager tool. Trust me I hate being badgered by magazine subscription dealers as much as the next person.
$54.00 Sale Price: $5
