Canon USA has additional discounts this weekend through Tuesday, May 31 on loads of refurbished Canon lenses, DSLRs, printers and more. Notable deals include:
- EF 85mm f/1.8 USM for $289
- EF 17-40mm f/4L USM for $569
- EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM for $369
Check all out of the deals here on Canon USA’s website.
Here is a new Canon DSLR kit from B&H Photo for which I custom selected the products and asked B&H to provide discounts to Photography Bay readers (which they did $$$). I have a Canon kit for now (a Nikon kit is in the works) and if these turn out to be popular, there may be more down the line.
My thoughts on putting together these kits were to select quality, reliable and affordable DSLR kits for beginners. These are kits that are a good fit for most beginners who just don’t know what they are looking for but would like a quality camera at a good price.
There are no cheap tripods or junk accessories inside these kits. This is gear that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to my mom or my best friends if they wanted a first “serious” camera. Check out what’s in the Canon kit below.
Canon Beginners Kit by Photography Bay
- Canon Rebel T6 Kit w/ 18-55mm IS II Lens
