If you are looking for a “take pictures with” entry into the Nikon DSLR system but also want a relatively recent camera and two lenses, Adorama is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D5600 Two Lens Kit with the 18-55mm DX VR and 70-300 f4.5-6.3 DX non-VR lenses for $680 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.
The last of the notable changes since our previous update is the Fuji X100F big sensor prime. Both B&H and Adorama are currently out of stock (but you can still order them), but other authorized and recognizable sellers have them in-stock for their standard price of $1300 as follows:
+ silver for $1125~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals by Amazon itself
+ black for $1137~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals by Amazon itself
And now we continue refreshing the Stock Status Tracker with some Fuji X-T2 body only action!
If you are comfortable with imported cameras with a warranty provided by the seller (not Fuji USA), you can get the new condition Fuji X-T2 in imported grey-market condition for $1450 by Deals All Year on eBay (99.8%, New Jersey).
On the other hand, if you prefer used cameras, you can get it in “Used – Excellent” condition for $1349 plus shipping (starts at $14, varies by zipcode) from Adorama which offers a 90-day warranty of their own and a 30-day return policy.
Meanwhile Cardinal Photo is offering it in “Used – Like New” condition for $1399 through Amazon Warehouse Deals. Not Prime eligible. The description says this is the X-T2 with 18-55 kit, with the 18-55 removed (and presumably sold separately).
Some sellers do this, by selling them separately, they can get a better price than selling the kit as is. This is because of the built-in discount of the official “with lens” kits. As long as sellers are upfront about it and are clear in the descriptions, giving people more options and more alternatives is good.
On the other hand, if you prefer a “take pictures with” kit, you can get the Olympus E-M5 (first generation) with the 12-50mm EZ lens in manufacturer refurbished condition for $450 with free shipping at the Get Olympus USA store with a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.
Contract that to getting the body only used starting at around $300 with a 180-day warranty through KEH ~ check our Used options post for more details.
This too surfaced while price-checking the Get Olympus Refurbished Refill (I think that’s a new official term now).
PS: I can’t post all 20+ new additions to the Get Olympus refurbished store, but if any others stand out in your opinion and would be of interest to other photographers, please let me know in the comments here or using the online contact form.
While price-checking the Get Olympus Refurbished Refill (I think that’s a new official term now), this alternative offer to the Get Olympus store surfaced…
… you can get the Olympus E-M5 body only in “Used – Excellent” condition starting at $289 plus shipping (under $10 for most zipcodes) at KEH Camera with a 180-day non-transferable warranty…
… you can get the Olympus E-M5 body only in “Used – Excellent Plus” condition for $329 plus shipping (starts at around $8 and varies by zipcode) at Adorama USED. Used products at Adorama come with a 90-day warranty covered by Adorama, and a 30-day return policy.
So when comparing used prices to other places, eg Amazon Warehouse Deals (AWD), keep in mind that most sellers at AWD offer zero warranty!
The refurbished options at the Olympus USA store have been reloaded! The item count has jumped from 18 to 39!
I will be going through them and posting individual posts for good deals, but since some of them sell-out quickly, I’m posting this alert, so you can jump in right away!
*** HOT DEAL ALERT ***
*** MORE COMING UP ***
PS: the Stock Status Tracker update is being postponed until I finish going through the reload of the Get Olympus store!
If, as an experienced photographer, you are looking for a “Take Pictures With” jump into the Fuji X-System, the Fuji X-T1 body only bundled with the FREE 35mm f2R WR Fuji lens now has picked up FREE accessories for the same price of $800 with free shipping at B&H Photo: a Watson extra battery, a 16GB Sandisk Ultra SDHC, and a Ruggard DSLR holster bag.
If you don’t need the extra accessories, for the same price, you can get it from B&H Photo with 4% promotional rewards. That’s about $32 to be spent in future purchases at B&H.
The X-T1 with 18-55 and 35/2 bundle, and the X-T1 Graphite with 35/2 remain in-stock at multiple retailers for $1200, but the body only bundle is only in-stock at B&H as of the time of writing.
Keep in mind, release estimates of new camera gear can sometimes be finicky and can obviously change as time goes by. So with that disclaimer out of the way…
… we have began a full update of the Stock Status Tracker and as of this update…
… the Amazon listing for the Nikon D850 body only shows a September 7 in 2017 release estimate for the camera.
To make sure I’m not hallucinating, here’s a screenshot 🙂
According to Amazon’s Best Seller charts, this is the #1 seller among New Release digital cameras. Keep in mind, the Amazon best seller lists are only as good as the product categories different products are put in. If someone fat-fingers a coffee machine under cameras, it will show in the best sellers 🙂
Pancakes are being served at Cafe Pentaxian! Pentax has a new K-P bundle, it’s the silver K-P body only bundled with the 40mm f2.8 XS pancake lens, together going for the very specific price of $1176.90 with free shipping. This is marked as a “Coming Soon” item at B&H Photo.
The little pancake lens itself, the Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8 XS is a special order with a 7-14 business days estimate for $227 with 4% promotional rewards.
If you don’t want to buy them together as a kit, the silver K-P body only goes for $949 on its own.
A new 3-day lens gear rental coupon is now up and running at Borrow Lenses! Their emails do a great job of explaining the offer visually, so here’s a screenshot of it, a more efficient way of describing it than me writing a seven paragraph bloviation 🙂
As of 9/5/17 at 9:55pm ET recheck, the page for the refurbished Olympus E-PL7 body only is marked as Out Of Stock with the “Add To Cart” button gone. However, the page is not returning a 404, so your guess is as good as mine whether it will come back in a few hours or not…
A number of refurbished lenses are also available during this refurbished department of the GetOlympus store.
As of a 9/5/17 at 10pm ET recheck, this sold out and its product page is 404 (they remove the web pages when they sell out ~ it’s kinda annoying)…
This was part of the refill of the refurbished options at the Olympus USA store…
As of the time of writing, the manufacturer refurbished Olympus E-M10 II body only is in-stock and shipping for $300 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.
Keep in mind, that since the last time this was in-stock, Olympus announced the E-M10 III camera which goes for $650 body only or $800 with the 14-42mm EZ lens.
There are over 50 items listed in the Camera & Photo lightning deals (old format) or Full Page format (faster to navigate on Desktop) of the Amazon Gold Box. Due to time constraints I cannot create a detailed listing of them all. The usual assortment of accessories are running throughout the day.

As of 9/6/17 re-check, this sold out and its product page is a 404…
This one was added after I posted the earlier GetOlympus store refills, and it’s another tempting price, it is the manufacturer refurbished Olympus 45mm f1.8 silver going for $200 with free shipping and a 90-day Olympus USA warranty.
In new condition at authorized dealers this was on sale for $300 a few days ago, and now it is back to $400.
This lightning deal expired…
As of a 1:24pm ET recheck on 9/6/17, this eBay listing ENDED…
