Bioshock Infinite from Amazon at 75% off. Didn't want to spend since I had just gotten a 24mm f1.4L and 40mm f2.8 earlier in the month. We don't really have Black Friday or Cyber Monday over here but it seems like local shops want to imitate the US.

I snapped up an EOS-M with 18-55 kit lens and the little 90EX flash, for $280 CAD + tax, albeit the white one - I wanted black or grey.

This is the lowest price I have ever seen on an EOS M kit + flash and the biggest sensor to have in that price range... just for casual pictures with friends and family.   :D

triggyman, where did you get that?, 280, I'd do one 2

I got it from Don's Photo, that was a web only offer and to avoid shipping & handling costs I opted for in-store pick-up. I expect to pick up the camera this Monday.


I can't seem to find it, I guess it gone, do you still have the link?

Yes you're right - it's not there anymore. It was right next under the EOS 1D Mk III body. Sorry if I caused you to miss the sale because I replied late.
5D Mark III, EF 24-105mm F/4L IS, EF 35mm f/2 IS USM, EF 100mm F/2.8L Macro, 600EX-RT. Wishlist: Upcoming 50mm f/1.8 IS USM or 50mm f/1.2L USM

Just jumped on a 100mm L Macro f/2.8 IS for $750 after rebate.......
Was very tempted to pick up this one but I ended up buying the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II instead  ;D

I picked up a 70D, some color correction gels, and an NDX 400 filter.
There wasn't any substantial savings, although the 70D came with some useless freebies, and I didn't pay sales tax, which is savings enough.  (Gotta love the Hasids!)

Monday added LR 5 for best deal I could find on the N side of the border and for under $100 I have a basket of lens adapters coming via eBay to use on my new Fuji.
If that's as much fun as I expect I might drop near $300 for the nikon to fuji tilt-shift adapter.  No need to wait/pay for the Canon version for the close-up/macro work I want to try with it.  I guess I could also build up a little bellows adapter too for ultimate lens control.
I suspect I'm gonna be spending more time crawling around the farm/yard this summer with a tiny & capable APSC macro rig.

I didn't buy any camera-related items in a BF sale this year, but I did buy the newest Olympus OMD and zoom lens and an 4/3-M43 adapter before the Olympus deal expired (it had nothing to do with BF) and, at the opposite end of the price scale, three "legacy" manual lenses (Olympus OM and Minolta) with suitable adapters - just for the heck of it (and dirt cheap for reasons unrelated to BF).

make sure to post some..
I'm sure to; I seem to have more fun pushing limited gear some days than using the higher end stuff.
Tho I suspect I'll be itching for one of the X-trans sensor'd Fujis in short order vs the Bayer-array bottom-end X-A1 I'm starting with.

Could someone explain this black friday thing?
To the non Americans like me.
Must be something like a sale, US- nationwide.... every friday?
Thanks a lot!
Being Norwegian, Black Friday meant nothing to me. But if I'm not mistaken, it is the Friday prior to Thanksgiving. But this year, my mailbox has been jammed with Black Friday offers. Lots of good offers. And on top of that we got Cyber Monday the follow on Monday, which I have never heard of before. Where did that come from?
