HEADS UP! ONE DAY ONLY! (August 23rd) Great deal on Nikon 24-70 2.8 lens!

Mostly Digital (based in London Ontario) is having an amazing, 1-day deal on the awesome Nikon 24-70 2.8 lens.

According to Photoprice.ca, they already had the lowest price in Canada for this lens at an excellent $1,447.99 but for tomorrow only they will be lowering it to $1,375.59! That will make it about $175 cheaper than the next lowest price in Canada - again according to Photoprice.ca.

This was the email I received from them this morning:

* You can save an additional $72.4 on this item. Our ONE-DAY SALE price will be $1375.59



Place your order online or call immediately, 1-800-942-6227 and we will take your order over the phone.

So if you've been considering buying this lens, tomorrow would be a great time to do it! I've purchased a few things from Mostly Digital over the years and found them to be very professional with fast shipping! I own this particular lens and it is easily the most used of all my lenses. The build quality, performance and image quality, etc. are all extremely impressive. You won't be disappointed if you pick this baby up!

PS. For some price context, B&H photo in the U.S. is currently selling this lens for almost $1,900 USD!! http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/5 ... _2_8G.html

nice price! thanks OP!

The email is a little misleading, it says the sale is tomorrow, but then it tells you to order / call immediately...?

HOT deal, even i dont shoot Nikon, i still think this is a awesome deal, better than buying the new Tamron VC 24-70.

PM at BB/FS possible for the 10% difference?

there is only one Holy Trinity and they certainly aren't lenses

This is Lava Hot for Nikon shooter!
It's the best price I've ever seen on this lens - new (short of it being sold out of the back of someone's van! :) )

(Lava Hot + 233 views yet - at the time of this post - not one click of the "thanks" button in the op. :facepalm: )

Update: Thanks Winkle! :)

Too bad Best Buy shows no online stock and all the retail locations around me show no stock either, could be an extra $62.44 off to make it $1313.15 and advantage of local purchase + rewards points .
