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...]

Just a couple of weeks ago, I priced the SanDisk Extreme 16GB CF cards at around $63 with a volume discount.  Those same cards are now $49.95 – even if you only buy one card.

Here’s a link to all of the SanDisk stuff on sale at B&H.

1TB Portable USB 3.0 HD for $80 – Deal Alert

Seagate 1TB Portable Drive Sale

Amazon currently has a good deal on a bus-powered (i.e., it runs off the computer’s USB power) USB 3.0 external hard drive at 1TB capacity for $79.99.

Details here at Amazon.  (Make sure you select the 1TB from the drop-down menu circled in the screenshot above.)

As I’ve pointed out before, USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports.  I regularly use a USB 3.0 drive on both my USB 2.0 MacBook and my USB 3.0 desktop and it works like a charm.
