Pentax K70 with 18-55 and Extras for $647

While the Pentax K70 body only remains at $600 [versus our November 2017 snapshot], the official K70 with 18-55 “take pictures with” has dropped $50, currently going for $647 with free shipping at Adorama (with free Lowepro 140 bag, 16GB SD, etc) and B&H Photo (no freebies).

Pentax K-3 II Body with Pentax D-BG5 Battery Grip for $829

The Pentax K3 II APS-C DSLR is still alive and kicking. It currently goes for $830 in new condition as the body only. For the same price, Adorama is offering it with a FREE Pentax D-BG5 Battery Grip. The free battery grip is included by Adorama automatically while this promotion is running. You see it mentioned on the product page. With free expedited shipping.

If you have B&H gift cards or promotional rewards, they are close, they are offering the K3 II + Battery Grip combo for $836.50 with free expedited shipping.

Pentax KP with 50mm f1.8 DA for $947

Yesterday we completed the 35mm Full Frame Price Charts write-up. Now the process has began for the APS-C DSLRs version with the price-checking round!

The Pentax KP is down $100 since the November 2017 APS-C price charts and it is getting a handful of free accessories for its new $900 price at Adorama.

But if you don’t want/need the extra accessories or want a “take pictures with” kit, then $947 will get you the black Pentax KP with 50mm f1.8 DA with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo. The lens goes for $110+ on its own, so you are essentially getting it for half price.

The silver KP is not eligible for this promotion, but you can purchase it together with four different Pentax lenses for a combined purchase discount. You can see them all at the main Pentax KP listing at B&H Photo.

Imported Nikon D850 w/1-YR Seller Warranty drops to $3200

I just updated the new line-up of the Stock Status Tracker (with the Fuji X-H1 added, the X100F and GH5 removed) and we have a greed price war on the imported Nikon D850 body only front. “Deals All Year” went greedy and skyrocketed their prices from $3240 to $3800, but they just got undercut by another imported, 6ave on eBay is offering the new condition imported grey market with a 1-year seller (not Nikon USA) warranty for $3200 with free shipping, with a maximum of three per customer. The new condition price at authorized Nikon USA dealers is $3300.

PS: if you need a full frame Nikon DSLR now, want the D850 but the waiting is driving you mad, there are some good deals on other refurbished Nikon DSLRs that can keep you going until/unless the D850 becomes available. You won’t lose as much money selling/trading a refurbished DSLR (or you can keep it as a backup).

Canon 6D II Body + BG-E21 Battery Grip for $1899

We already mentioned a couple of days ago that the Canon 6D is down to $999 and with your choice of a useful freebie but that’s not the only camera with useful freebies…

A couple of 3rd-party sellers at Amazon, the most recognizable of which being Cameta Camera are offering the Canon 6D II body only bundled with the BG-E21 Battery Grip for $1900, that’s the body only price without the battery grip at most authorized Canon USA dealers.

Canon 1D X II Body with Flashpoint Zoom R2 TTL On-Camera Flash and 64GB Extreme PRO CF and Takama Tripod/Monopod Kit and more for $5500

The Canon 1D X Mark II body only is down $200 since our November 2017 price charts, but that’s not all. It is also getting a handful of useful freebies at Adorama including their house brand Flashpoint Zoom Li-on R2 TTL On-Camera Flash Speedlight (which goes for $179 on its own), along with the following freebies:

+ Takama Flip-Zip Multi-Functional Photo Tripod Monopod Kit

Refurbished Nikon D610 body w/90D W for $1040

As you can tell by today’s posts so far, the first round of price-checking for the Price Charts is the 35mm Full Frame Cameras (iLC or Fixed Lens). The Nikon D610 body only goes for $1500 at authorized Nikon USA dealers, but if you are willing to the manufacturer refurbished, you can pay just over 2/3rds of that, going for $1040 with free shipping at Adorama with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.

Refurbished Nikon D810 Body w/90D W for $1900

If you are going to get the Nikon D810, since it is no longer the latest model [that’s the elusive Nikon D850 – see Stock Status Tracker], you might as well go the way of the refurbished and save a significant amount of money.

The new condition Nikon D810 body only goes for $2800 at authorized dealers, but if you go the manufacturer refurbished route, you can get it for $1900 with free shipping at Adorama with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. That’s $900 less!

PS: “90D” is short for 90 days, “W” is short for Warranty. I am trying to keep blog-post titles one line with the desktop/laptop view. If they go for more than one line, they’d better fill up the second line, otherwise they are eating up space.

Nikon D810A gone from B&H and Adorama but still available

Another disappearing act! The Nikon D810A is no longer available for purchase from B&H Photo and Adorama, but if you still want to get it in new condition from an authorized dealer Amazon itself has it for its normal price of $3800 with a maximum of three per customer. It is in the all-encompassing “temporarily out of stock” shipping estimate though.

Nikon D5 Anniversary gone from B&H, but still available elsewhere

The time is right in the year for a brand new Price Charts series to begin! I have began doing the spreadsheet work and price-checking! This will continue for this week (other things equal) and you may see an increase in deals/posts featuring the cameras that are tracked in the Price Charts as the price-checks surface different kinds of deals directly or indirectly.

If you want to re-familiarize yourself with the Price Charts series, this link shows all previous editions (going back to December 2014).

The first thing that surfaced is the Nikon D5 Anniversary edition is starting to run out. The camera is marked Discontinued and unorderable at B&H Photo but it remains in-stock at Adorama for the five of you that may interested in it 🙂 Amazon itself still has it as “not yet released” but it’s still available for $8000 by Adorama and Unique Photo thru Amazon. Paying for this with an Amazon Prime VISA or Prime Store Card gets you a 5% statement credit, which in this case it’s a pretty nice $400 amount!

Refurbished Nikon D7500 body w/90D W for $900

The new condition Nikon D7500 APS-C body only goes for $1250 in new condition at authorized Nikon USA dealers such as Amazon and Adorama. But if you want to pay 3/4ths of that price…

PS: if you are having a bit of a deja vu, that’s because three days ago we posted a similar day for the refurbished D750 for $1200 also by BuyDIG upon eBAY.

Imported Nikon D7200 Body for $680 w/free S&H

If you are comfortable with imported grey-market DSLRs that come without a warranty [there’s no mention of any warranty included in the eBay listing], then to the eBay Deals we geaux…

… yes, Mardi Gras time, so “geaux’ is the official spelling of “go”, where eBay seller “Photo4Less” (100%, Brooklyn) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Nikon D7200 body only for $680 with free shipping. Limit up to five per buyer. Over 1700 units got sold from this listing per the eBay data over there.

Imported Nikon D850 Body drops to $3230

A new development after today’s Stock Status Tracker update. We have another discount on the Imported Grey Market Nikon D850 Body on eBay by eBay seller Deals All Year, it dropped from $3250 to $3230 with free shipping and a 1-year seller warranty. The new condition price at authorized Nikon USA dealers is $3300.

As far as the other tracked cameras, it is status quo. Both the Sony a7r III and Panasonic G9 are steadily available at authorized dealers, although individual sellers may go in and out.

On a meta note, this is the last time we have the Fuji X100S in the Stock Tracker. The camera has been steady in prices, both used and new for a while now, so it will be retired. However, I am saving the entries, so if something happens that necessitates its return, it will be very easy to bring it back!

IF there are any other cameras or lenses you’d like to see tracked, please leave a comment here or at the Stock Tracker or the online contact form

Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD with FREE Hoya 82mm Filter + $32 Rewards for $799 [C/N]

I couldn’t decide between a tummy and a Tammy Wynette intro for this deal, so let’s just pretend I wrote something funny and move on to the deal 🙂

The new condition Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens is bundled with a FREE Hoya 82mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter and 4% promotional rewards (about $32 to be spent in future purchases) at B&H Photo in your choice of Canon or Nikon systems.

Note that the lens on sale is the first generation. The latest model is the G2 from Tamron which goes for $1199 in Canon and Nikon (without rewards or free Hoya filter).

I’m sure Pentax and Sony A shooters would love an $800 lens of this kind as well but is only a Canikon lens 🙁 At least the Pentax 24-70mm f2.8 is $1100, unlike Canon and Nikon who double or triple that amount.

Just like we rounded-up the various B&H Tech Deals, in this post we rounding up some of the latest B&H Photo lens deals. Free shipping unless otherwise indicated below…

+ Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS Macro with 4% promotional rewards for $569 in the Canon, Nikon, Sony A and Sigma SLR systems

Nikon D7500 w/18-55 & & 70-300 & Extended Warranty & Extras for $1600 (Costco members) or $1680 (non-members)

If you happen to want both the Nikon D7500 APS-C DSLR and the 18-55 DX VR and 70-300 f4.5-6.3G VR AF-P lenses, Costco has them in a bundle for $1600 with free shipping. You also get a 2-year extended warranty on the camera body (not the lenses) along with a 32GB SD card, an extra battery, a Nikon branded gagdet bag and a Nikon online class.

Non-members can buy this online with a 5% surcharge, which in this case is $80 more. Given that an annual Costco membership is $60 (Gold Star individual or Business member), it makes sense to sign up for a membership instead of paying the $80 non-member surcharge. Occasionally they have new member promotions that give you some freebies for your first membership year. Then with a membership you buy a mountain of toilet paper and “tp” all your frenemies 😉

This bundle may also be available at your local Costco store but they don’t have a store look-up option (yet???) on their website.

Nikon D850 Hunt: Two eBay Auction-style Listings in progress

Another thing that surfaced during the Stock Status Update is that there are two live classic bid-style auctions on the Nikon D850 body only running on eBay and as fate would have it, they both end a few hours apart from each other. The listings end next Tuesday though, so the prices will definitely go up by then.

These are sold by individual eBay users, not camera retailers…

+ Auction #1 (eBay) in New-Other condition
+ $1675 with 44 bids as of blog-posting time

+ Auction #2 (eBay) in NEW condition
+ $1852 with 1 bid as of blog-posting time
