Deals Digest: 20mm f1.7 joins Panasonic Instant Rebates, Nikon D600 drops $100, etc

A number of discounts have triggered a new impromptu round of the Deals Digest. For specials as they happen, be sure to check the Camera Deals blog. This post is only a summary, not play-by-play coverage.

Nikon D600 drops $100
The market was expecting a price of $2000 or less for the "affordable full frame DSLRs" and now we are getting there. The three Nikon D600 kits have dropped $100 each, with the D600 body only going for $2000, the D600 with the new 24-85mm FX lens for $2500, and the D600 with the 28-300 FX lens for $2900. See them all at B&H Photo and Adorama and Speaking of Nikon, the Nikon Instant Rebates at Amazon have been extended by a week (expire November 24, 2012).

Panasonic 20mm f1.7 joins the Panasonic Instant Rebates
Yes, the 20mm f1.7 pancake lens has joined the Panasonic Instant Rebates which expire December 1st, 2012. Buy the 20mm f1.7 pancake together, in the same shopping cart as any of the four Panasonic M43rds kits (GX1 or GH2 or GF5 or G5) and save $75 off the total price! Maximum four lens discounts per shopping cart. You can order two bundles per household. So if you max out, you can get two Panasonic M43rds cameras and eight lenses with eight lens discounts in two separate transactions.

Don't forget the 2% Holiday Rewards
One of the Holiday Shopping Trends this year is 2% promotional rewards on select camera and photo gear at major retailers. We have a detailed post with more details.
