Coming UP: Nikon D850 Full Frame DSLR

As part of the 100 Year Nikon Anniversary festivities, Nikon officially announced that a new 35mm full frame DSLR is coming. It will be the D850, and it will replace the D810. More details on the D850 will be announced at a later date per Nikon.

UPDATE: a placeholder page has been created for the camera at B&H Photo. More details as they get revealed by Nikon…

Nikon released a “hype video” for the D850, YouTube-embedded below:

DECISION MAKING PROCESS CHANGING after D850

So this changes the decision making progress for anyone interested in getting a 35mm full frame Nikon DSLR. As you can see in the Full Frame Cameras Price Chart, Nikon full frame DSLRs range from $1500 to $8000. The D810 that will be replaced by the D850 goes for $2800, while the Df is at $2750. The D810A (astro) goes for $3800.

So, strategically this means, if you are willing to pony up money for a brand new Df or D810, you night as well wait and see what the D850 will offer and how much will it cost.

On the other hand, if you need a 35mm full frame DSLR at the Df/D810 level right now and don’t want to wait for an anniversary pig in an anniversary poke, going the manufacturer refurbished route for the Df and the D810 seems like a reasonable financial and cameraholic decision versus buying them in new condition at full price.

That’s because the manufacturer refurbished prices are decidedly lower than the new condition:

+ manufacturer refurbished Nikon Df with 50mm f1.8G Special for $1795 at Adorama

+ manufacturer refurbished Nikon D810 body only for $1997 at Adorama

Fuji X-A3 with 16-50 and 50-230 for $699

The Fuji X-A3 with the 16-50mm lens goes for $599 at authorized dealers [see also the “Take Pictures With” section of the Mirrorless Price Charts], but for a limited time, an extra $100 can get you the two lens kit with the XC 50-230mm f/4.5-6.7 OIS II Lens for $699 total at B&H Photo. The offer is good for all three X-A3 body colors, but the 50-230mm lens is silver no matter what body color you select. The lens goes for $399 on its own.

But wait, there’s more! If you like some free accessories as well, Adorama includes a Lowepro shoulder bag, 16GB SD card, 58mm filter kit, Corel software and more for the same price of $699 in all three colors.

However, if you don’t want the 50-230mm lens, and you don’t want the extra accessories, and you are comfortable with used cameras, then:

+ used brown X-A3 with 16-50 for $445 by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself
+ used silver X-A3 with 16-50 for $499 at B&H Photo

Free Fuji 35mm f2 R WR Prime Lens with Fuji X-T1 Camera Kit purchase [corrected]

CORRECTION: this is an f2, not f2.8 lens. The “R” confused me into thinking f2.8 🙂

Fuji temptation time! All four of the official Fuji X-T1 kits currently get a FREE Fuji 35mm f2 WR lens with purchase! The free lens will be included automatically by B&H Photo while this promotion is running. You know the promotion is running when you see the lens mentioned in the individual product page of each lens.

The four kits participating are the X-T1 body only for $800, the X-T1 with 18-55 for $1200, and the X-T1 with 18-135 for $1400. Also participating is the X-T1 Graphite body only for $1000.

But wait, there’s more! The free lens is also offered on some of the bundles with free accessories. The X-T1 Graphite Body for $1000 gets the 35mm f2 WR along with an extra Watson battery, a 16GB SD card, a holster bag, and a cleaning kit.

A similar set of freebies is included with the X-T1 body only for $800, and so is the X-T1 with 18-135mm for $1400.

NOTE: some of the kits mentioned above earn 4% promotional rewards as well. Most of the kits that include free accessories don’t get 4% promotional rewards, except for the Graphite. Considering the price of the cameras, you can trade-off whether you want 4% to spend in the future or get the extra accessories. The free lens is included in all the kits while this promotion is running.
