Please note: This is probably a gray market camera. At the time of this post, ebay seller DigJungle has a 99.4% positive rating on ebay.
Amid the recent announcements of Canon’s new point and shoot cameras in early January, I missed that Canon also made the 6D available in a kit with the new-ish EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. The new kit runs $2199 and should be available in early February. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
This new kit option makes a lot of sense and I think most of us saw this one coming when Canon announced the lower-tier 24-105mm STM lens earlier in 2014. I’m not sure why Canon didn’t start offering it from day one. Perhaps they wanted to clear out some stock with the 24-105mm L kit lens before packaging the new lens with it.
The 6D remains available with the pricier 24-105mm f/4L lens as well for $2399. And that kit is actually on sale through January 31 for $2099 after a $300 mail-in rebate.
B&H has a nice deal on the Nikon D3100 with 2 lenses, a 16GB SD card, a bag and Nikon School DVDs for only $743. The lenses are both VR models. The deal is valid through Dec. 10.
I think the D3100 is a great camera and a real bargain with this kit at this price. Check out my earlier Nikon D3100 review.
