I have an exclusive Amazon US coupon for 10% off on the Irix 15mm f/2.4 Blackstone lens for Nikon F-mount: YVE5-EQ9N52-NUVWR5.

Update #1: the first coupon code above did not work for everybody and Amazon assigned a new discount code NRUMIRIX that will be active in approx. 4 hours (around 10 pm EST). Sorry about the confusion.

This coupon is valid only for this Amazon listing and the purchase has to be made from this link in order for the coupon to work. This deal will expire on February 22 or until out of stock.
