Nikon DSLR Price check

Another feature that might be helpful to our readers now that we are using special-interest sub-feeds is Price Checks. Check the bottom of this post for a poll asking whether you like "price checks".

With prices going up or trending sideways, this is a good time to take a "snapshot" of the latest prices, if nothing else, for reference purposes. So here we go, we'll present the best 1-2 prices for each DSLR among the reputable retailers we track. Unless otherwise stated, free shipping is included, although for a camera like the D700, you may want to get it right away, instead of having it float in UPS or USPS space for days :)

Due to time constraints, we were not able to price-check every available Nikon-mount DSLR model.

Footnotes
1. Prices are as of the time of writing and may change by the time you read this
2. With an extensive post like this, the possibility of typos increases. Please let us know if you notice any errors
3. Because everyone can sell at Amazon.com, we recommend only buying from Amazon itself and well-known 3rd party sellers (J&R, Adorama, Crutchfield, Vanns, OneCall, 17th Street, Norman, etc, etc). If you are not familiar with a 3rd party seller, be sure to research them in-depth, especially if the price is "great"
4. Some retailers also offer their own kits that include extra items and may be better bang for the buck if you need the extra items. However, if we take into consideration every single independent kit, this post would turn into a 20-page post that wouldn't be particular helpful to anyone except for hard-core number geeks :)
