    Damn, they have nothing I'm currently looking for. If they had a ZD 35-100 f/2.0 I would have to seriously consider one.

    Looks like the deal may be over. Tried to buy a silver 75mm and got a message saying the code is not valid. Saved me from saving some money :) (at least for the moment)

    I tried to get a Sigma 30mm DN A for my Oly M10 but the coupon didn't work for me either.

    glad the code didn't work for me. I really shouldn't be buying gear.

    Bought an E+ version of a Panasonic GH3 for $382, so we'll see how my foray into video goes....

    @RBrianTaylor@RBrianTaylor that's a great deal on a really wonderful camera with fantastic ergonomics. I've always found the KEH E+ rating to appear and function in near new condition. I bet your shutter count is less than 8,000 actuations. Check out www.eoshd.com for advice on good video settings. His GH3 user guide is pretty helpful as well. Have fun with your foray into videos...it's addictive!

    Thanks for the info, @Hal Knowles@Hal Knowles. The shutter count is 6836, and there isn't a scratch on the camera, just some slight "wear" marks around the grip area... I'll check out that www.eoshd.com website for some tips. Could you recommend any websites for basic primers on how to shoot DSLR video and what other "tools" that I might want/need? Thanks again!

    Sure thing @RBrianTaylor@RBrianTaylor !

    Sorry about the delayed response. A few potentially helpful sites include the following:
    Learn how to make videos | Vimeo Video School
    DSLR Video Tutorials | Lynda.com
    FilmmakerIQ.com
    Mastering Film » BIG BRAINS – small budgets: DIY Filmmaking Advice

    Have fun! And remember, other than a camera body, lens(es), audio mic(s), and likely some type of stabilization (e.g., body-based, lens-based, tripod), most the gear is a deep rabbit hole and money sink. The key is your story and your vision. There are so many great videos out there (especially on Vimeo) of DSLR cinematography on the cheap.

    Thanks, @Hal Knowles@Hal Knowles for those links! I did splurge and buy a Axler Robin Pro 40 Stabilizer L when B&H had them on one of their 1-day sales for $169, so I'll hold off on buying anything else for a little while. I do have a regular photo tripod, but I don't own any video heads, just photo ball heads. I think I'll experiment with just using the Axler for a while and see what I can come up with. I'll probably have to upgrade my computer as it's pretty old, though I might be able to just get a new video card and monitor. We'll see. I have some learnin' to do!

    Very cool! Keep us all posted on your opinions of the Axler Robin Pro 40 Stabilizer L. That was a great Deal Zone offer. I was tempted to get one myself.
