Zeiss Instant Rebates – Up to $300 Off

Zeiss Instant Rebates

If you’ve ever bought Zeiss lenses in new condition, there is a very high chance that you’ve bought them at standard MSRP pricing. That’s because Zeiss lenses rarely ever go on sale – I think the most I have seen to date was $100 off during holiday season and only on specific, usually over-stocked items. So when I found out that Zeiss is currently offering up to $300 in instant rebates on all of its ZF.2 lenses for both Nikon and Canon, I had to let our readers know.

Nikon D750 – Additional $300 Instant Rebate

Nikon D750

Big news for our US readers – Nikon has just cut the price of the D750 by an additional $300 instant rebate, bringing the price down to $1,999! And if you need a camera with the 24-120mm f/4G VR lens, you can get the combo for $2,700. If you want to get some additional savings on other lenses, Nikon’s Buy Together and Save program is still on. That’s a pretty sweet deal for what I consider to be the best all around Nikon full-frame DSLR. You can read my detailed Nikon D750 review to learn more about the capabilities of the camera.

Big Canon Price Drops on 5D Mark III and 6D

Canon 5D Mark III

We have just received information from our partners B&H Photo Video and Adorama that Canon is significantly dropping prices on both 5D Mark III and 6D cameras. It is hard to say whether these price drops are coming as a result of the Japanese Yen depreciation, or perhaps Canon is planning to release replacements to these cameras soon and wants to clean off the shelves before new products hit the market. Either way, these are great prices on great cameras. We have previously reviewed both Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 6D and found them to be quite solid. So if you are invested in Canon glass and accessories and need to replace that aging 5D or 5D Mark II, or want to move up to full-frame from an APS-C camera, this might be a good opportunity to do so. At $2,499 for the Canon 5D Mark III ($300 price drop and $300 instant rebate) and $1,399 for the Canon 6D, these are the lowest prices on the two cameras we have seen to date.

New Price Drops from Nikon and Canon

B&H Nikon D810 Rebates

Looks like both Nikon and Canon are not very happy with their holiday sales, since the two just announced aggressive price drops on their high-end cameras. The Nikon D810 has been dropped by $300 to $2,996.95 (regularly $3,299) and the already discounted Nikon D610 has been dropped by another $100 to $1,496.95 (regularly $1,999). Full-frame has never been cheaper! And here is the bonus part – these price drops are available with Nikon’s Buy Together and Save promotion, so you can get additional discounts on lenses. The icing on the cake is free expedited shipping, along with plenty of goodies worth up to $120 from B&H.

Top Cyber Monday Deals

B&H Cyber Monday Deals

Although Black Friday is supposed to be “the day” for great deals, I’ll admit that I was not all that impressed with what Nikon had to offer, aside from a couple of fine deals on lower-end cameras. Well, it is Cyber Monday today and things are looking much more interesting, with some great deals from Nikon definitely worth looking at. The Nikon Coolpix A did not sell all that well for $579 on Black Friday, but it seems like Nikon is either releasing a replacement, or just wants to clear off the shelves, since the price has been slashed even more – the Nikon Coolpix A is on sale for $499, for today only until the stock is gone (about 10% of the stock has already been claimed). At this price, the little camera with a large APS-C sensor is a great deal, so if you need a small pocketable travel camera, you might want to check it out! In addition to this, there are a few other deals like the Nikon 1 V2 kit for $499 that I found and picked for our readers. If I find anything else worth posting today, I will update this article.

Top Black Friday Deals

B&H Holiday Savings

The shopping craze has started in the United States for this holiday season, so we wanted to do a single post that shows all the best deals we were able to find for our readers. We will be updating this article several times today and we are planning to do another post for the “Cyber Monday”, but only if there is anything worth posting. There are a few great deals going on today, but not anything particularly great from Nikon (sadly), aside from their lower-end DX and CX offers. Sony has some great mirrorless deals and Canon also has a few good lens and camera deals that might be of interest.
