There are lots of great Black Friday deals still left for photographers that have carried over past Cyber Monday. From sales on Nikon F-mount lenses to a good deal on Topaz software, here are some of the ones that stand out to me the most.
Note: Many of the deals I listed over the weekend have now expired. Some are still around; any that remain live, I’ve kept below. FYI, many of the following sales have already passed the originally-planned expiration date, so I don’t know how long they’ll stay up. I apologize in advance if the sale is gone by the time you click it.
An Unusual $450 Off a MacBook Pro
Apple’s discounts are generally in the $50-150 range, but they are selling one specific configuration of their excellent late-2020 13″ MacBook Pro (M1 chip) for $450 off. It’s the 1 TB version with 16 GB of RAM in space gray, which normally costs $1900 but is $1450 today. The deal keeps getting pulled and then re-enabled each time I check on B&H. Hard to say when it will expire, but it seems back up for now.
- Deal here: Apple MacBook Pro (1 TB, 16 GB RAM, space gray)
- Sale price: $1450, was $1900 (24% off)
Nikon Z5: $1000
The Nikon Z5 has sold at $1000 a few times in the past, but now that camera gear is trending more expensive, it’s exciting to see the deal back. This is a very good full-frame mirrorless camera that punches far above its price tag (which is typically $1400). To put it another way, you’ll end up with better image quality by picking the Nikon Z5 with some great lenses compared to a more expensive camera like the Nikon Z6 II with cheap glass.
- Deal here: Nikon Z5 from B&H
- Sale price: $1000, was $1400 (29% off)
Other Nikon cameras that are on sale right now include the Nikon D850, Nikon Z6 II, and Nikon Z7 II. You can see all the Nikon camera sales here.
Nikon DSLR Lens Sales
There are some great sales on Nikon F-mount lenses this year. Probably the best is the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E VR for $1060, which is $340 off the usual price of $1400! Libor wrote about this lens not long ago if you missed it. Other discounted lenses include the 500mm f/5.6 PF, 58mm f/1.4, 105mm f/1.4, and our favorite 28mm f/1.4.
- Deal here: Nikon F-mount lenses
- Sale price: Up to $500 off
Tons of Canon Lens Sales
Canon’s Black Friday lens sales encompass most of their newest RF-series mirrorless lenses, including the RF 15-35mm f/2.8 ($400 off), RF 105mm f/2.8 Macro ($400 off), RF 15-30mm f/4 ($400 off again). Even some cheap prime lenses are 20-25% off.
- Deal here: Canon RF lenses
- Sale price: Up to $400 off
Sony Sales on Cameras and Lenses
Not to be outdone by Nikon and Canon, Sony has some nice sales on their cameras and lenses as well. The Sony 35mm f/1.8 OSS is 21% off at $373, for example. And some of Sony’s steepest deals are for their cameras. The Sony a7R IVA, for example – which was only replaced a few weeks ago by the a7R V – is already $500 off.
- Deal here: Sony sales
- Sale price: Up to $500 off
Fuji Joins the Party
There are some great Fuji sales this year as well. One of the best is a whopping $800 off Fuji’s GFX 50S II, making it just $3200! For a medium format camera as good as the 50S II, $3200 is a fantastic price. But there are also sales on Fuji’s lenses, both APS-C and medium format, so there’s something for almost every Fuji user.

- Sale price: Up to $800 off
Topaz Software $300 Off
Topaz makes some of the best software today for upsampling photos, sharpening, and noise reduction. Their four-piece bundle (Photo AI, DeNoise AI, Gigapixel, and Sharpen AI) has a heavy discount for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
- Deal here: Topaz software bundle
- Sale price: $159, was $459 (65% off)
