The Nikon D7500 body only goes for $1250 in new condition at authorized dealers, but if you prefer open-box condition from reputable dealers, you can get it for $1120 with free shipping as open-box at B&H Photo… For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker…
The newly launched 6% to 8% eBay Bucks promotion puts in new light this offer at the eBay Deals. The Beach Camera eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D3400 Two-Lens DX Kit for $400 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.
Only the black color scheme is available. It includes the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G DX VR lens and the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR. With 8% eBay Bucks, you’d be getting $32 in eBay Bucks (if you are eligible and you manually activate the promotion).
PS: non-VR is not an official Nikon designation but it serves as a practical disambiguation, since the lack of mentioning VR in a lens name may be a typo/error. Saying non-VR clarifies to the reader that this is not a VR lens. Or maybe I’m overthinking things 🙂
More eBay Deals action, the BuyDig eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7200 body only for $680 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty with a limit of up to five units per customer.
Since the D7500 is the latest model, currently going for $1250 in new condition in body only [see Stock Status Tracker], it’s probably a good idea to go refurbished if you are buying the previous generation (almost half the price of D7500), instead of getting a new D7200 that’s only $250 away from the D7500. But of course it’s your decision 🙂
UPDATE: as of 8/21/17 PM recheck, the used price dropped from $86~ to $75~…
Another wave of sales/discounts is happening at Amazon Warehouse Deals, including a Four Thirds DSLR “Take Pictures With” kit. This is for Four Thirds fans and hardcore cameraholics, it should go without saying. There is one (was two) USED Good condition listings of the Olympus E-420 with 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 Zuiko for the very specific price of $75~ [WAS $85.51]. This is sold by Amazon (Warehouse Deals) itself, not 3rd-party sellers.
We have two back to back Tamron lens deals. We start a physically big zoom, the new condition Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di USD lens on sale at B&H Photo for $819 with free shipping in the Sony A option or for $869 in the Canon EF system or $899 in the Nikon F system. The Canon and Nikon systems are VC (optical image stabilization). All three options get 4% promotional rewards. This is a limited time offer.
Sunday also means another round of featured USED Weekly Sales at KEH has been added. These are eligible for 25% off with permanent coupon KEHDEALS and continue until Friday night of the same week (eg Friday 8/25/17 in this case).
This week includes:
+ USED Canon 70-300mm F/4-5.6 IS USM EF starts at $193 after coupon
+ USED Mamiya RZ67 Medium Format Camera Body starts at $137+ after coupon
+ NOTE: the $72 option is AS IS (means usable for parts only. Equipment may or may not work. No warranty or return available)
+ also participating is a Mamiya Film Back and Film Insert
They come with a 180-day KEH warranty and hassle-free returns. “AS IS” items don’t have warranty and no returns. That’s partially why they sell for a lot less.
ON-GOING OVERSTOCK SALE
Not eligible for the coupon mentioned above, but KEH Camera also has an on-going OverStock Clearance sale with over 420 items currently participating.
Another discount among the used offerings at Amazon Warehouse Deals, there are three listings available in “Used Very Good” and “Used Like New” condition of the Nikon AF-P DX 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED non-VR lens with prices ranging from $114 to $120 for the “Used – Like New” condition. Given the price difference between them and the price difference between the new condition model, probably getting the best condition is a good idea!
PS: this listing shows all the used options.
The value of free accessories may be diluted when you are buying a $2000 camera or lens, but when you are buying a $150 item, the free accessories are a much higher percentage of the value of a product. Case in point, the new condition Nikon 55-200mm f4-5.6G ED AF-S DX VR II is on sale for $147 at some authorized Nikon authorized dealers.
At Adorama, you can get it for the same price, with free shipping with FREE accessories: the Corel software bundle (five titles, including AfterShot PRO 2 and Paintshop PRO X9 and VideoStudio 9), a 52mm Pro Optic Filter Kit (three filters and a case), and a lens cap tether.
If you don’t want/need the free accessories, you can instead get 4% promotional rewards at B&H Photo for the same price of $147 with free S&H.

The new Canon SL2 DSLR is now shipping, but that’s not all. The SL2 body goes for $550, and the SL2 with 18-55 goes for $700 at authorized dealers. The SL2 with 18-55mm is going for that price at Adorama, but they are also bundling it with free accessories:

KEH Camera has Weekly Featured Deals and you can get 25% off those weekly specials using coupon code KEHDEALS over there.

At B&H Photo, they have the Canon EF version in-stock for the same price.
At Amazon some 3rd-party sellers have some versions in some kits, for example, Cameta has the Canon EF version bundled with a handful of accessories going for the same price (ships directly from Cameta but Prime-members get Prime-like free delivery).

Here’s an example, the aforementioned lens. Used items sold by B&H come with a 90-day warranty covered by B&H (not the manufacturer). Given some spotty service by some manufacturers on some products, this may actually be a plus 🙂
PS: the Nikon version is nowhere near as low, it starts at $1200+…
