It's official: Amazon Prime Day is taking place on July 16-17. But we're already excited– because there are some excellent deals on cameras and lenses on Amazon that are too good to ignore, even before the big day.

The great thing about shopping now is that you don't need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of the current discounts, which might not be the case when Prime Day arrives: as the name suggests, the sale primarily caters to Amazon's paying members.
