    Pro Tip: Call first before placing order as they never update their stock numbers on their website.

    • +2

      rant ahead agreed …. and even when they say they have 1 in the warehouse any they have gone and put eyes on it and you order it there and then, it still takes a week for the order to be picked, packed and shipped meaning that it will be 2 - 3 weeks before you might see it ….. if you get the sh!ts with waiting they are quick to cancel and refund but communicating when an item is on backorder and doesn't come in and keeping you updated is definitely not their strong suit … rant behind ;)

    • They are cheap. However, you are right they are slow, and they don't understand how parcel lockers work. Kept calling me up asking why I had used the same Parcel Locker ID but at different addresses. Ended up returning everything in the end since due to their delays I had already finished my holiday and could no longer collect.

  • +5

    Make sure you check whether what you're ordering is actually in stock, via their website… made an order this week and was told that the product had to be ordered in from a supplier and would take an additional 7-14 days, which a quick google reveals is not uncommon for them. On the plus side, they didn't mess me around with cancelling and refunding the order.

    • can confirm had same experience with stock and cancellation

    • Same issue here also. Ordered a photo scanner thinking it was in stock but received the dreaded email telling me they are out of stock and it will be 7-14 days to order stock from their supplier. FFS.

    A few of the Tamron for Sony lenses are on sale again:

    $1599.2 Tamron 70-180 for Sony - cheapest I've seen it for local stock (been this price before on https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/631080)
    $1006.4 Tamron 28-75 for Sony - a few dollars off the cheapest I've seen but there is a V2 of this lens on the way (not that it really needed it but seems like there are some decent improvements and could drive price further down) https://www.dpreview.com/news/4612246904/tamron-developing-s...

    • Is that the right link for the 70-180mm?

      And do you have one? What are your thoughts? Worth waiting for the Tamron 35-150mm F2-2.8?

      • +2

        Ah that link was more just to show the date it went on sale, it was a sitewide sale and I left a comment on the post with the prices there.

        I went from the Sony 70-200 GM to the Tamron 70-180. The biggest thing for me is the lack of OSS on the Tamron. Buttons and switches I miss but can live without. Wouldn't go back to the Sony because I prefer the size of the Tamron. It's small enough that you can carry it around like you would any other lens.

        The upcoming 35-150 2-2.8 looks nice, I like the buttons/switches. Can't justify it in my head though because I already have a 24-70 2.8 and a 70-180 2.8!

        • Oh why did you go from the 70-200 GM to the Tamron? Smaller/cheaper?

          What body are you using it on? Is it one with IBIS? If so, how much of a difference did you notice without the OSS?

          • +2

            @dust: I went for the Tamron purely because it was smaller and lighter. Just a hobby user btw not paid/professional work.

            I used them both on a A7 III and I found that there was a significant difference for video on the long end with IBIS only. Feels like my hit rate for stills is a bit lower too at range with the same shutter speed (that probably can vary a bit based on your own technique).

            • @eecan: you mean tamron was shakier as it did not have IBIS?

              • @khoed792: OSS. (IBIS is in the body).

                • @dust: Yup the Tamron was more shaky due to lack of OSS

  • typical just bought an R6 last week for $3560 (which seemed like a good deal at the time)

      The R series don't get discounted much this year…

  • Any Sony E-mount astrophotography lenses on deal for Sony A7iii?

    I've had a flick through and see a few suitable available but haven't actively tracked their costs to know if these are deals.

    • What's your budget and what are you looking for? There are a couple of 14mms E mounts on there.

      • Thanks - probably around $500 - very much hobbyist photographer. Something i could use for indoor portraits too would be good.

        • Landscape astro and indoor portraits are fairly different subject matters.

          Unless you get something like a 24mm 1.4 which you could use for both but it definitely wouldn't be my lens of choice for either of those.

        • Generally, one or the other. Astro and portrait are on different ends of the scale.

          • @aoeueoa: Got it thanks both! Currently have the 24-105 but find the f4 isn't ideal in low light hence thinking faster aperture would be good. But perhaps need seperate lenses!

            • @Tgb: The 24-105mm is the jack of all trades and master of none lens. Unless you need it all in one package I'd sell it and get a wide prime for astro (~14mm) and a medium focal length prime (50-85mm) for portraits.

            • @Tgb: The FE 14 1.8GM but it's expensive. It also has a curved front so it's more difficult to multi-purpose to landscapes etc as well but it is well reviewed. You can use back filters with all the hassle that entails.

              I am holding out for something around 18mm 1.8 or 1.4 GM that can take a front screw on filter.

        • +1

          You want wide angle for astro, so you can catch big sky and ideally some foreground terrain for scale/context.

          For portraits you want 50-85mm for bokeh.

          Check out an astro calculator - the longer your focal length, the less time you can have shutter open before getting star trails: https://www.lonelyspeck.com/milky-way-exposure-calculator/

    • +4

      With astro you tend to get what you pay for. For around $500 I'd recommend the Samyang 14mm f/2.8. It's not the fastest or the sharpest lens out there but it's pretty good given the price. You'll be able to get a 30 second exposure without noticing much star trailing. At 30 secs, f/2.8 and ISO 3200/6400 you'll be able to take decent astro images.

      • +1

        Samyang 14mm f/2.8

        That's what I used for many years. Fully manual lens but is fantastic for the price. Should be able to pick one up for ~$300 second hand.

        • Yes good clarification, it is a manual only lens. There is a auto focus version but it's a few hundred dollars more expensive. Manual only doesn't really matter for astro though since you'll only ever be using manual focus, it just makes it a little less versatile for other uses. If you only ever use it for astro and landscape manual only won't ever be a massive issue.

          • @JRozells: 14mm at 2.8, pretty much everything is in focus anyway so I didn't find it particularly hard to focus even for non astro/landscape purposes.

      Only 24exp. I've never found Digidirect to be competitive on film, even at 20% off.

  • Tempted with Olympus E-M1 Mark II - brings it down to $1,350.40. But I feel there may be a cashback offer at some stage later in year.

  • I can't work out where to put the film in any of the cameras listed in the example deals. Please explain.

  • Someone talk me into or out of buying the black and white disposable camera. Would totally be an impulse buy…

  • Thanks just picked up the Eneloop Smart & Quick charger for $40, not the cheapest, but I'm sick of buying batteries.

    • +3

      Personally, I'd go with littokala charger. Make sure to buy some ladda batteries from ikea. They're good value and even better if you can get a discount with the ikea family membership.

      • Yeah that's what I'm defintely going to do next. I can't get any Laddas delivered to me, so I thought this would do in the meantime, until I can go to an Ikea store.

      • +1
        • 1 on the Littokala. Not only is it cheaper but it can also charge multi chemistry batteries (e.g. 18650s).
    • bad news for you, I've bought more batteries since I've got the rechargables

  • Looking at the new Fujifilm 27mm 2.8 WR, not on their eBay store unfortunately :(

    • +2

      FYI I've been waiting for this exact lens for 2.5 months and I'm still waiting. It showed in stock when I ordered. No updates from them other than the initial order confirmation email and the email 2 days after saying it's on backorder. I've had to chase it up myself multiple times with them (partly because of the Fujifilm cashback which ended early July). They've been telling me false ETAs time after time. Today they said "early September" (I ordered in June). I asked for a Fujifilm Australia number to call myself and she gave me a number. I'll contact Fujifilm Australia myself and see what is going on. COVID or not this is ridiculous. The least they could do is update their customers along the way.

    Wake me up when the 28-70f2 goes on sale…

    • you'll be sleeping awhile :D

    • +1

      I wouldn’t hold your breath.

      I bought one during the last 20% off sale in July. I called them first to confirm it was in stock and they said it was. When it hadn’t shipped after 3 days I called again and they said it was packed and would be sent that day. A few hours later they cancelled my order saying it had “been oversold”.

      As soon as the 20% sale ended it reappeared on their store, only to disappear again just before this new sale started. They clearly don’t want to sell this lens at a discount.

  • Code not working?

    • Still working fine for me.

  • Agree on stock levels. I’ve been trying to make a complaint to them about this but they don’t want to hear any of it. They will take your money telling you there is 1 in the warehouse, and you will often get a status update that it’s back ordered. They are cheap for a brick and mortar store but the quality of service is rubbish. I always ask George’s if they can price match and with most items they do.

    • There's a $40 Amex Cashback for George's at the moment if you can price match.

  • No R5 :(
