The new condition Nikon D3400 two-lens kit with the 18-55 DX VR and 70-300 DX non-VR goes for $500 at authorized dealers as part of the Black Friday festivities, with a variety of freebies at each retailer, such as Adorama and B&H Photo (with extras) and BuyDIG.

Canon 1D X II drops to $5500

A $200 discount is a pretty nice amount, except when the price of the camera is $5700. Still, $5500 is better than $5700, $200 can get you more memory cards or extra batteries or camera bags 🙂 The 1D X II is now going for $5500 with free accessories at Adorama and 2% promotional rewards (that’s a nice sum of $110 to spend in the future) at B&H Photo.

No freebies at Amazon but that 5% statement credit if you pay with a Prime VISA or Prime Store credit card is $275! Note that the Discover Q4 5% Cashback is limited to $1500 per credit card, so you’ll only get 5% back on the first $1500 of this price.

Nikon D500 Body + FREE MB-D17 Battery Grip for $1800

The Nikon D500 dropped $100 since our previous check, but not only that, it gained a new friend, the Nikon MB-D17 battery grip for FREE! So $1800 gets you the D7200 body only with said MB-D17 battery grip and freebies that vary by retailer. This time Amazon is offering freebies (128GB Samsung EVO green microSD, bag), along with Adorama and B&H Photo offering their own sets of freebies.

The same promotion is also available for the D500 with 16-80mm kit which goes for $2400. It is interlinked in the listings of all the above retailers.

Nikon D7200 body only drops to $797

The Nikon D7500 body only remains at $1250, but having the previous generation model around gave Nikon the flexibility to create a discount since their prices were artificially too close to begin with. To cut a long story short, the Nikon D7200 body only dropped from $1000 to $800 since ten days ago. The other kits get parallel discounts. I don’t mention them all because it would take forever to do these posts.

So the $800 price, or $797 to be more specific, is available by Amazon itself (5% back with Prime VISA, or Discover Q4 cashback; I won’t repeat these in every post because it will take forever to post anything!) and Adorama (with freebies) and B&H Photo (with freebies).

Canon 77D body drops to $750

Ten days ago when I did a price-check round the Canon 77D body only increased from $800 to $850, but right now, as part of the Black Friday festivities, the 77D body only is down to $750, the 70D with 18-55 for $900 and with 18-135 for $1149. You also get some free accessories that vary by retailer at B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself (no freebies).

PS: we already mentioned the Canon 80D discounts both the new condition and the manufacturer refurbished, so obviously I am not going to create another post for them.

Sigma SD1 with 18-200 DC OS HSM for $2000

Sigma has a Foveon DSLR deal even! The price of the SD1 body only remains $1800, but they have dropped the price of the SD1 with 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM to $2000, so for $200 more you are getting a stabilized zoom with it. This is a special order so they won’t ship immediately at both Adorama and B&H Photo.

Pentax K-3 II Body drops to $830 or $846 with BG-5 Battery Grip

And now, the moment you have all been waiting for! I am beginning a full price check of all cameras tracked in the Camera Price Charts. This will basically cover almost all of the DSLRs and mirrorless cameras, along with the serious fixed lens cameras with RAW (above 1/2.x” sensor size). Hide your wallets!

We start in K-landia where the Pentax K-3 II body only has dripped down to $830 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a up to three units per customer.

But if you want the official Pentax battery grip to go with it, the BG-5, you can get them together as a bundle for $847 with free shipping at B&H Photo.

Refurbished Canons: 38+ DSLR kits and 97+ Lenses

There are so many refurbished sales at Canon I can’t process/post them all individually right now, so here is are the overview listing. I don’t know why they create so many listings, and I don’t know if there is complete or partial overlap between the categories. It is situations like these where it would really help if I was IBM’s Watson and could start 200 background process to sort it out!

+ 38 refurbished DSLR kits
+ 21 refurbished DSLR kit
+ nine refurbished DSLR kits

+ 97 refurbished lenses and flashes and such
+ 11 refurbished lenses
+ 7 refurbished lenses (some are EF-M)
+ 6 refurbished lenses

But if you want to save even more, you can get the second generation model, the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II as manufacturer refurbished for $900 at the Canon USA store with a 1-year Canon warranty. It is in-stock as of this post.

Refurbished Canon 80D w/18-135 & 1-YR W for $949

The new condition Canon 80D with the 18-135mm IS STM lens goes for $1300 but you can zoom in with it for significantly less by getting the manufacturer refurbished condition from the official Canon USA outlet with a 1-year warranty for $949 with free shipping. A “latest generation” with a versatile lens!

Refurbished Canon 70-300/4-5.6 IS USM w/1-YR W for $230

The latest model is the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM, going for $500 in new condition at authorized Canon USA dealers such as B&H Photo and Adorama. The first generation goes for $450 in new condition. Given the $50 price different, if you are gonna get the first generation…

… then you might as well get it in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 1-year Canon USA warranty for $230 with free shipping from the official Canon USA store. That’s almost half the price! Zoom-zoom!

Refurbished Canon D-Rebel T6 w/18-55 & 75-300 for $250

The D-Rebel T6 in gray looks nice, but if you are looking for an entry-level entry-point into the Canon DSLR system without breaking the bank, the Canon USA outlet store is offering the standard black color scheme of this manufacturer refurbished Canon D-Rebel T6 two-lens kit for $250 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty. The lenses are the 18-55 and 75-300, the standard two-lens kit. No need to fight the crowds at Fry’s 🙂 It is in-stock as of the time of writing!

Now shipping: Canon D-Rebel T6 in Gray (with 18-55 IS STM)

For collectors and completists mayhaps, of fans of all things gray, the official Canon USA store now has in-stock the Canon D-Rebel T6 in a Gray color scheme bundled with the standard 18-55 IS STM lens for $400. This is an available alert of a limited edition color, not a deal!

It kinda looks nice:

Canon SL1 with 18-55 and refurb 55-250 for $500

If of all the Canon APS-C DSLRs out there it is the Canon SL1 the one you want, in the black color scheme (not the Stormtrooper), the Canon USA outlet store created a Black Friday Bundle for it for $500. You get the new condition Canon SL1 with 18-55 IS STM plus the refurbished 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS STM along with a bag and 8GB SD card. One year warranty with new or refurbished items purchased there. It is in-stock as of the time of writing.

I think we found their theme here, just like the 70D black friday bundle, they took a new previous-generation DSLR kit and bundled it with a refurbished item. Interesting development 🙂

Canon 70D body with 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM + refurb 430 EX III-RT Flash for $900

If of all the Canon APS-C DSLRs out there it is the Canon 70D the one you want, the Canon USA Outlet store has a Black Friday 70D bundle which is in-stock as of the time of writing and includes the 70D body only, the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens, the Speedlite 430EX III-RT Refurbished along with a gadget bag and 8GB card for $900 with free shipping.

PS: another option is the manufacturer refurbished 70D with 18-135 IS STM for $790. No flash here though.

Canon Outlet Black Friday sales

The official Canon USA store too has launched their Black Friday sales! I totally forgot about them! I will be digging into them and spotlighting select features. Their new condition sales are mostly similar to what you find at authorized Canon dealers but they have exclusive access to their own manufacturer refurbished!

UPDATE: You can find the spotlighted (spotlit?) deals as I post them under the Canon category.

Speaking of B&H Photo, they have a massive Apple sale featuring laptops, iPads, Mac Minis, and more. Click on “Load More” at the bottom of the page to see more.

Adorama’s Best of Canon, Nikon and Sony

Adorama has created a nice visual page with their Best Canon, Nikon and Sony offers from the latest round of instant savings. This is very handy because I can’t find time to create summaries or even go through all the Instant Savings promotions of every manufacturer. For next Black Friday, I am definitely merging with IBM’s Watson 🙂

Canon D-Rebel T6i with 18-55 IS STM and Rode Mic and Pixma PRO 100 Printer for $499 after $350 MIR

Are you a Rebel with an Audio Cause and an affinity for mail-in rebates? Adorama is offering the Canon EOS Rebel T6i with 18-55 RODE PIXMA kit for $499 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card). This includes the Canon D-Rebel T6i with 18-55mm IS STM in the Creator/Video/Audio kit with the RODE mic and SD card, along with the PIXMA PRO 100 printer, and its trusty sidekick (50pk SG-201). That’s a nice haul for $500 if you don’t hate mail-in rebates. Or if you like to sell/trade things, that gives you even more flexibility.

Canon 80D body for $1000, w/18-55 for $1050, w/18-135 for $1300, w/18-135 Video $1400

The Canon 80D body went for $1100 when I posted the APS-C DSLR price charts but the Black Friday madness has brought a discount to this Canon camera too!

The 80D body only goes for $1000, with 18-55 for $1050, with 18-135mm for $1300, and the 18-135 Video Creator kit for $1400. All these options are available by Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo. Depending on the kit, you may get free accessories or promotional rewards.

Sigma ART Black Friday DSLR Lens Sales (46 options)

A total of 46 Sigma ART DSLR lenses are participating in their Black Friday instant savings, you can find them all organized at B&H Photo as part of their many and more Featured Sales. I will try to break down the lenses later today, but there’s so much to post and not enough time!

Before Canon took mirrorless more seriously, they tried to tempt mirrorless-tempted photographers with their new SL-series. Fast forward to now, the Canon SL2 body only is down to $499 with free shipping at BuyDIG and Adorama and various at Amazon… This went for $550 a couple of weeks ago when I posted the APS-C dSLR price charts

Canon EF 75-300mm f4-5.6 III USM for $100

A new offer went live at Adorama, the new condition Canon EF 75-300mm F/4-5.6 III USM is on sale for $99 with free expedited shipping and $4 in promotional rewards (to be used in the future at Adorama). This is the USM version of the lens. The one found in most Canon DSLR two-lens kit bundles is the non-USM version.

Used Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DI-II VC for $125 [C]

The popularity of superzoom digital cameras also fueled a parallel superzoom lens “zoom ratio war”. If instead you prefer a more modest, old-school superzoom ratio, the Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DI-II VC goes for $199 in new condition, or you can get it for $179 manufacturer refurbished at Adorama.

If you are a Canon shooter and if you are looking to save a sizeable chunk of that, thanks to the 20% off in-cart promotion at Amazon Warehouse Deals, you can get this camera in USED – Very Good condition for $124~ with free shipping after the in-cart discount. There are multiple listings of this, so price may drop over time. Remember, AWD offers a 30-day return policy, but makes no warranty promises.

If you are looking for something in-between those two options, the Nikon version is available in USED EX+ condition (Excellent plus) at KEH Camera for $149 plus shipping. And if you buy it before 12/31/17, you get a 365-day warranty instead of the usual 180-day.

Imported Canon 5D Mark IV body with 1-YR Seller W for $2550

For $2849, you can get a loaded Canon 5D Mark IV bundle after mail-in rebate, but if you don’t want to deal with mail-in rebates, and don’t need/want the printer and the battery grip, AND you are comfortable with imported cameras…

… to the eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “6ave” (98.9%) is offering it in new condition imported-grey market with a 1-year seller warranty (not Canon USA warranty) for $2550 with free shipping.

So it’s a game of trade offs:
+ mail-in rebate and prepaid gift card
+ USA warranty VS seller warranty
+ extra Printer and Battery Grip
+ A-list seller vs eBay seller
+ higher price vs lower price
+ sell/trade extras or no wish to do that

PS: we have a relatively new tag, Full Frame Deals that marks all the cameras that have a 35mm full frame sensor, whether they are DSLRs, mirrorless, fixed lens, or floating lens cube.

PS2: “W” is short for Warranty. With this blog template, I am trying to keep blog-post-titles one line long. If it goes for more than one line, it better make use of most of the second line, otherwise it’s wasted space. Although some could argue this whole blog is wasted space 😉

Canon 5D Mark IV Body with BG-E20 Battery Grip, Pixma PRO 100, Extras for $2849 after $350 MIR (prepaid AMEX)

Full frame party! This Canon 5D Mark IV body only bundle at B&H Photo gets you the following items for $2849 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card):

+ Canon 5D Mark IV body only kit
+ Canon BG-E20 Battery Grip
+ Canon Pixma PRO 100 printer
+ its trusty sidekick the 50pk of 13×19″ photo paper
+ 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO
+ extra Watson battery

This is a pretty good deal on its own, without even factoring in the mail-in rebate. The 5D IV body only went for $3300 on its own (without the printer and battery grip) a couple of weeks ago when I posted the Full Frame Price Charts.

If you don’t live anywhere near, or if you don’t want to fight the crowds and lady luck for the $300 Fry’s Canon DSLR doorbuster (most likely Canon D-Rebel T6 with 18-55 and 75-300), fear not, there is an alternative without any hassle…

… the official Canon store comes to the rescue because they are offering the manufacturer refurbished Canon D-Rebel T6 with 18-55 and 75-300 for $310 with free shipping and a 1-year Canon USA warranty.

Take that painful doorbuster 😉

Refurbished Nikon D7200 w/90-Day W for $650

The Nikon D500 APS-C flagship currently goes for $1800 with a free MB-D17 battery grip in new condition at authorized dealers. But if you want a serious Nikon APS-C DSLR while almost 1/3rd of that price…

… then to the eBay Deals we go, where the BuyDIG eBAY store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7200 body only for $650 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. Limit up to three per customer.

eBay reveals Cameras in their BF Ad – most likely imported/grey-market

eBay has revealed their eight page Black Friday ad and it has about half a dozen digital cameras in it. The eBay ad however does not specify the seller of the camera, the warranty situation, or the condition of the product, so that’s a mystery until the deal goes live. Judging by the prices, it looks like most of them are probably going to be imported/grey-market. About half of them are 35mm full frame cameras.

We integrated eBay’s offers in the Black Friday 2017 Ads Digest. You can find all the eBay additions by using your browser’s search function looking for “eBay” (not case sensitive).

I will price-check and dig around on eBay to see if these are already live.

Nikon 50mm f1.8G with Extras for $177
