FREE to Watch Streaming Class Starts 12pm ET: Nikon Lenses the Complete Guide

IF you are curious about the Nikon lens line-up, set your alarm clocks! Starting at 12pm eastern today (Saturday 3/17/18; I often type the date to make sure I know what day and date it is LOL) streaming for FREE is a repeat of the class by John Greengo (the CreativeLIVE Tech/Gadget Guy) Nikon Lenses the Complete Guide. The class will repeat overnight until 12pm eastern the next day, so if you are busy earlier on Saturday, you can watch it later. Much cheaper than movie tickets + popcorn + soda 🙂

This is among the classes free-streaming at the CreativeLIVE On-AIR. Yesterday I forgot to check, and of course they were running the Canon Lenses the Complete Guide. This is streaming until 12pm ET today. I don’t know if they plan to stream it again for Saturday. Some of the rebroadcasts run on back to back days, others are single day.

Nikon D850 body only has a March 13 estimate

Don’t run to the hills! Run to Amazon! An update of the Stock Status Tracker shows a March 13th estimate for the Nikon D850 at Amazon by Amazon itself at its starting price of $3300. The various kits with various Nikon lenses shown on the same listing have the same estimates since they simply ship you the boxes of the camera and the lens(es) of choice; these are not separate Nikon boxes for every D850 + lens combination. As long as the lenses too are in a similar or better stock situation.

As usual, keep in mind estimates are estimates, and they change over time based on a variety of reasons!

Imported Nikon D810 body w/1-YR Seller Warranty for $1900

The new condition Nikon D810 body only goes for $2800 at authorized dealers which offer it with a variety of useful freebies, eg, Adorama. But if you are comfortable with imported grey-market cameras…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “6ave” (98.7%) is offering the Nikon D810 body only in new condition imported grey-market with a 1-year seller warranty for $1900 with free shipping with up to three units per customer at the sale price…

The price difference is certainly big, $900! Considering that the D810 is a previous generation model, going refurbished or used or grey-market may be the smart money idea. After all, $3300 can theoretically get you the new Nikon D850 [impossible to find – check Stock Status Tracker], so why spend $2800 on the previous generation ~ unless of course you specifically want the D810 in new condition from authorized dealers.

No Pre-Orders yet: new Canon D-Rebel T7 and 4000D

DSLRs have just scored two goals thanks to Canon! Canon revealed two entry-level Digital Rebels this week, the D-Rebel T7 (2000D), a follow-up to the good old T6, and an even more entry-level model, the 4000D which so far has only been announced in Europe. The D-Rebel T7 with come out with the 18-55 kit lens and a starting price of $550. Pre-orders are not accepted (not that anyone should pre-order them at this price).

Nevertheless, DSLRs will take any and all new models at the moment as they are trailing mirrorless cameras 7-3 among the New Cameras of 2018.

(ENDED) Used Nikon D850 body only for $2800 w/free S&H

As of a 7:22pm ET recheck, the eBay listing has ended/closed… For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker

To the Land of eBay we go with what looks like a higher risk purchase than a retail purchase, so if you are risk-averse you may want to skip this. eBay seller “Smart Pawn Shopper” (99.8%, Southern California) is offering a used Nikon D850 body only for $2800 with free shipping. The listing has pictures of the actual camera and a list of what’s included. They also have “Make Offer” enabled. Check the listing and the seller in detail before buying if interested. Again, this is a higher risk purchase, so if the chance of problems keeps you up at night, just avoid it 🙂

Pentax K-1 Getting $550 Optional Upgrade with K-1 II Internals

Putting to shame larger camera manufacturers, Pentax announced that existing Pentax K-1 photographers (this is a two year old camera, announced February 2016 [see New Cameras of 2016]) won’t be left behind! They are offering an optional $550 hardware upgrade to the K-1 that will give it the K-1 II internals. The service will be provided by the trusty Precision Camera of Austin::Texas between May 21 and September 30 in 2018. The service won’t be available before or after this date range. Details at the press release which describes the changes as follows (with more details as we get closer to upgrade time):

“The PENTAX K-1’s main circuit board will be replaced to add new functions featured in the new PENTAX K-1 MKII. Additionally the current SR logo on the PENTAX K-1 MKII will be replaced with the new PENTAX K-1 MKII logo.”

Speaking of the upcoming K-1 II, Amazon itself is now accepting pre-orders for $2000 but unlike Adorama and B&H Photo, Amazon does not currently include the Pentax D-BG6 for FREE with pre-orders. Eventually the Amazon AI Bots may wake up and add it but for now, it’s not included.

It will be interesting to see what this upgrade option will do to the used prices of the Pentax K-1, since the Upgrade optional increases the value potential of the camera. However, the four month upgrade window further complicates things since there is a cut-off point. The lowest used price as of the time of writing is $1600 in “Used – Condition 10” at B&H Photo and “Like New Minus” at KEH Camera. Amazon’s own Warehouse Deals (not 3rd-party sellers there) offers it for $1428 but no warranty (KEH offers 180 days, B&H 90 days). Warehouse Deals offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee only. Mayhaps some Options Trading technology may be needed to figure this one out 🙂

Refurbished Nikon D7500 Body w/90 W for $900

In other eBay action, eBay seller “Card Cash” (98.5%, New Jersey) is offering a $50 preowned Jamba Juice Gift Card for $35.49 with free shipping. This is a physical gift card. It comes with 45 day guarantee. Limit up to five per customer. Higher risk, higher rewards as they say.

Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8L II USM for $1540

72 Hour NewEgg Sale includes imported Sigma 17-50/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD (EF) for $280

If you are a fan of The Way of the Egg, NewEGG has launched another 72 hour sale. As usual, some of the offers may require a promo code (it will tell you on the page), and most of the time you’ll have to give them an email address in order to use the promo code. Which is kinda goofy since you need an email address to create an account and buy things, but what do I know? 🙂

They feature the usual assortment of computer accessories, hardware, software and so forth AND one lens, the new condition imported grey-market Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM FLD in the Canon EF option for $280 with free shipping, sold by RedTag Camera through NewEgg (ships directly from RedTag Camera). This particular sale ends on Saturday night. Of interest especially if you have NewEgg promotional gift cards waiting to get spent (they only last one year from the time they are issued; not to be confused with regular gift cards which don’t expire).

In new condition at authorized Shiguma dealers, this lens goes for $369, eg Adorama with free lens-y accessories.

Pre-order new Tamron 70-210mm f4 Di VC USD [C/N]

F4 constant aperture zooms are often trade-offs many photographers are willing to make over f2.8 constant aperture zooms.

Rokinon strikes again with a manual prime lens under their “SP” tag, it is the SP 50mm f1.2 lens available only in the Canon EF with a starting price of $999 and available for pre-ordering at B&H Photo

This should not be confused with the non-SP existing Rokinon 50mm f1.2 mirrorless system lens which is available in M43, Fuji X, Canon EF-M and Sony E starting at $380. Mayhaps it went on sale to celebrate the arrival of the SP? 🙂

This has been added to the New Lenses of 2018 tracking page…
