Sure, Christmas and gift giving season is still a few months out, but don’t tell that to Sigma or Tamron. Both companies are currently running some pretty great deals on their gear for the month of October, no doubt trying to catch you early gift purchasers out there.
Tamron’s “Rake-It-In Rebates” are offering $100 of 5 of the newer lenses in their line up, including the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 DI VC USD. The Tamron rebates are only available for the month of October, so you have about 20 days form the time of this writing to get the deal. You can be eligible for the rebates from any Tamron Authorized retailer, including many of your local camera shops and of course online at B&H Photo Video.
The Sigma “Instant Savings” deals are a bit more wide spread across their lineup of products and ranged from $25 off a 1.4x Teleconverter to $150 off their Sigma APO 50-150mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM lens. The deadline for the Sigma deals is not published other than to say “Autumn” so you still have plenty of time to snatch those up if you are interested.
I have listed a few products from these two manufacturers below that I thought were probably the best deals. But feel free to check out the full details on each promotion via the Tamron and Sigma sites respectively.
