So what have we bought this Black... Er, Weekend?

I just picked up a pair of Pocket Wizard Plus X triggers at $50 off so I'm happy.






What did everyone else treat themselves to?

Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

Nada. I live in Japan where there is never a discount or rebate on gear. In fact prices went up here! Enjoy your new toys you lucky people!

That 24-70L II deal at $1799 is very nice indeed!

Someone hacked a local business and compromised both of our credit cards, so they are cancelled.  I'm buying things the old fashioned way with cash. 
 
I am meeting a guy this morning to buy a Lee Big Stopper after he got two by ordering from different places and waiting for months.

I bought Kelby Training yearly subscription for USD 160. Very good deal as there are plenty of trainings to watch: from photography to retouching.

Historically, retailers just about make it through the year but after Thanksgiving (3rd Thursday in November), the Christmas shopping season starts and the Friday after Thanksgiving was said to be the day they went from running "in the red" (not profitable) to running "in the black" (making money for the year).  It has since become a bigger thing and is synonymous with some sales prices that may or may not be better than average.  The concept has also expanded to include a longer shopping season even starting before Thanksgiving in some stores.

Nothing ... gotta work on my savings for the 300mm f/2.8L II.

BTW, I live in India and there is no such thing as a Black Friday sale in this country. Canon sets the pricing policy for its products with an iron hand and prices almost never come down, not even temporarily.

Black Friday has officially invaded Canada too. Even though our Thanksgiving is in October. It hasn't reached the level it has in the USA yet, but suppliers are starting to do Black Friday weekend discounts.

Even better!  That means you have a longer holiday sale season, lol.

Picked up a used 100-400L from LensAuthority for 950.

I bought a second 6D body from BigValue for $1400! I am tempted by the 24-70 f2.8L II deal and the 100 f2.8L macro deal. I also got a 32GB UHS1 SanDisk SD card for cheap.

Update: I ordered another Canon EF 50 f1.4 for $279 and the Rokinon 14 f2.8 also for $279. I ordered them both from BuyDig on eBay. Its weird I ordered the 50 on 11-30 and have yet to see a tracking number and today is 12-4. I don't have one for the 14 either. Are they usually this slow or is it the holidays causing them to slow? My 6D from BigValue will be here on Thursday of this week.
