(ENDED) Rokinon 35mm f1.4 (Canon, Nikon, Sony) for $400

This 4-hour lightning deal expired... For future specials, check the daily Amazon Holiday specials... For even more specials, check the Camera Deals blog... Expired items after the break...

UPDATE: The price is $400. This ends at 7:30pm ET, or earlier if sold-out... Also, B&H Photo is offering the Bower 35mm f1.4 for $380 in seven different options (Canon, Nikon (chipped, unchipped), Sony Alpha SLR, Pentax K-mount, Four Thirds, and Samsung NX). Bower is another one of the names Samyang uses for its lenses. I don't know if these lenses are exact copies with different names/barrels or if they have other subtle differences.

ORIGINAL POST: Please note this is only a potential deal since the price is not revealed until it goes live. In the Amazon Camera & Photo specials for Tuesday, which you can also find through the Electronics specials, starting at 3:30pm ET, there is going to be a special on the Rokinon 35mm f1.4 AS UMC SLR lens in your choice of Canon, Nikon and Sony Alpha. The price will determine how fast it sells out and this will vary by mount since they are three different products. Now, even if it is shows 100% Claimed right away, do not lose hope just yet. Join the Waiting List if you are going to be near your computer/tablet/phone. A lot of people add things to the cart immediately and use their 15-minutes to decide whether to buy them. So at around 3:45pm ET, people at the top of the Waiting List may start getting an option to buy it. Even when the Waiting List fills up, hope is not completely lost, although the chances are even lower. This promotion is good for 4 hours, unless it is completely eaten up before then.

For a refresher on the lens, check its list of completed reviews. Rokinon is one of the brand names Samyang uses to market its lenses in different markets. Personally I think they are making a mistake because they are diluting their brand, especially now that they are getting more attention and reviews.

The seasonal Black Friday Situation room is now closed and only for the history books. For the latest specials, check the always busy Camera Deals blog which also offers a full-text RSS feed. We went through more expired items over there today, but with so many specials, it's impossible to catch everything.

One special that you may find interesting because of its value price is this Canvas on Demand Groupon that offers you two 16"x24" gallery-wrapped canvas prints for $49 with free shipping. Typically the Groupon offers are one of those prints for $29. Getting two is an extra savings of $9. The limit is one two-pack (or one-pack) per person, but you can buy an extra set as a gift. This Groupon expires Tuesday night (12/5/12). Be sure to read the terms, conditions, restrictions, and such if you are not familiar with how these work!
