A Few Great Deals on SD Cards

Lexar 32GB Class 10 Card Deal for $32.95

Lexar 32GB Class 10 SDHC Card for $32.95

If you’re picking up a new camera this holiday season for yourself or someone else, there’s a high likelihood that it will use SDHC memory cards.  The prices just keep dropping on these, which makes it easy to get a whole lot of storage space for just a little cash.

Because the fast cards are relatively inexpensive, don’t skimp or make a mistake and purchase a cheap-o SD card that will underperform.  If you want to know the ins and outs of what the SD card speed ratings and classifications mean, check out Demystifying SD Cards.  Or, just check out the deals below for my picks and solid prices on SDHC cards this month.

Deal Alert: Canon 5D Mark II + 24-105mm f/4L Lens [Update: It's Gone]

5D Mark II on Amazon

I wouldn’t expect his deal to last too long, but Amazon has the 5D Mark II with a 24-105mm f/4L lens for $2749.

This is substantially lower that this kit normally runs (usually in the $3200 or higher range).  The lens alone goes for over $1000, which would put the value of the 5D Mark II body in the $1700 range.  Again, I don’t expect this to last long.

[Update: And it's gone. Hope you got one...]
