Yongnuo Products Now IN STOCK at B&H

By Anthony Thurston on February 18th 2015

We first announced that B&H had picked up Yongnuo lighting products a while back, but a common complaint among many of you was that the product was still being drop shipped from China, leading to long shipping delays.

It seems B&H heard the complaints, and has decided to carry many of those Yongnuo products in the store, meaning the standard B&H shipping services that you normally enjoy now applies.

Personally, I think this is a really smart move from B&H. This has also brought their Yongnuo prices back down to levels consistent with the rest of the market (which had been another complaint). You can find all the Yongnuo products over on B&H here, or check the list below for a few of the notable products now in stock.

    It’s always good to have a local dealer in the event of any problems.

    Given the popularity, and reliability of Yongnuo products it is surprising it took this long. I am glad to now have these choices at B&H, though there is still a dearth of support for Pentax.

    Just ordered two of them.

    I’ve had a very good experience with Yongnuo products. It is nice to know I won’t have to wait 2 to 3 weeks to receive it from China via Amazon and can now order it through B&H.

    I have most if not all the Yongnuo products now being carried by B&H, While i never had problems getting them from reliable eBay sellers (in the USA) or via Amazon, it’s great they are available from B&H as well. And it seems the pricing is right in line. (although not sure why the III is a $1 more than the IV).

    I hope in the future they expand the line to carry all the Yongnuo products as a few good ones are missing from that list (I will check the B&H site).

    This was a great move on part of B&H.

      It’s a clever plan — if you want to use Group F with the TX unit, you need to have at least one YN560 III, since the IV uses up one of the available groups as master (it can only receive in Groups A to E). So anyone who wants to get too complicated with their lighting has to pony up an extra buck as an “oh, wise guy” tax.

    The advertised price on B&H for the 50mm 1.8 has me puzzled. I didn’t think this was going to be anywhere near $100. The one thing I do know is that it won’t sell if it’s the same price as the Canon.

      It has better optical quality than the Canon from online samples, tests and comparisons. I wonder when people will start treating Yongnuo products in their own right, as with companies such as Sigma and Tamron rather than branding them as a “cheap Chinese knockoff” – because the YN 50mm lens is nothing like the Canon optically.

      I haven’t seen any testing that showed it was better optically, but on par with almost every aspect of the Canon. From what I heard, the downside of the Yongnuo is that it won’t AF in live view.
      I agree that Yongnuo makes quality products at a cheap price point! It makes no sense for me to buy anything other than their flash system. However you and I both know the photographer mindset when it comes to “made in Japan” vs “Made in China”. My G lenses from Nikon are made in China and blow me away!

      Must clarify… Not all G lenses are made in China… Just my 35, 50, and 85.
