KEH offers a 180-day warranty on used products in condition EX or better, so that’s half of a manufacturer warranty, so factor that in the price. The particular one offered at KEH is “LN -” condition (Like New Minus) and comes with a battery and charger.

In new condition, the D7500 w/18-140 goes for $1550 at authorized dealers such as Amazon itself and Adorama

Imported Nikon D850 body drops to $3150

An update of the Stock Status Tracker has the following updates on the Nikon D850 front:

+ the imported grey-market option drops to $3150 by eBay seller “Deals All Year” (99.7%, New Jersey, 1-year seller warranty), while “6ave” sky-rockets their price

+ Amazon’s estimate for the D850 Filmmaker’s Kit is a floating “2 to 4 weeks”

Pre-order the Nikon D850 FilmMaker’s Kit for $5500

Nikon has a hard time making enough Nikon D850s to satisfy demand but that didn’t stop them from creating the “FilmMaker’s Kit”, it is the D850 body only bundled with a trio of f1.8G FX lenses (20, 35, 85), the ME-1 Stereo Microphone and ME-W1 wireless microphone, a 7 inch Atomos Ninja Flame and a spare EN-EL15a battery.

The price of this bundle is $5500 and it is available for pre-ordering at Amazon by Amazon itself and by Adorama and by B&H Photo… This has been added to our Stock Status Tracker

WHEN DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO BUY THE FILMMAKER KIT?

The three f1.8G lenses on their own go for $800, $527, $477 respectively, totaling (with the help of a calculator) $1804. The Atomos goes for $795 on its own, increasing the bundle value to $2600. The battery goes for $60 on its own, while the two microphones go for $134 and $199 respectively. So that’s a total under $3000 for the Filmmaker kit, plus $3300 for the camera = $6300, with an asking price of $5500 for the bundle.

So with a difference of $2200 between the D850 body only ($3300) and the Filmmaker kit ($5500), you’d need to want at least $2200 worth of the kit items to make this a good deal. In other words, if you want all three lenses AND the Atomos, then it’s worth doing it, otherwise it becomes a too close to call type of a situation.

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 eBay Auction-style listing: $2669 with 18 bids [closes Wedn AM]

Today’s update of the Stock Status Tracker finds a Nikon D850 Auction listing by an individual eBay seller, offering the camera in new condition, with five pictures of their camera. This auction-style listing is at $2669 with 18 bids as of the time of writing. The listing ends on Wednesday at 6:50am eastern.

(ENDED) Used Nikon D850 body only for $3199 w/free S&H

This eBay listing ended…

An update of the Stock Status Tracker finds an eBay listing for a “Used – Window Demo” condition Nikon D850 body only for $3199 with free shipping from California seller “esales.california” (100%, 7903). There is only one unit available. This is a “Buy It Now”, not an auction listing.

As usual, be sure to research the seller to your satisfaction before buying.

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!

Refurbished Nikon 70-300/4.5-6.3G DX non-VR for $105 w/FS

If you don’t care about VR much, the manufacturer refurbished Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G ED AF-P DX is on sale for $105 with free expedited shipping and a 90-day warranty at Adorama. This is not a VR lens!

If you prefer the VR lens, you can get it refurbished for $150 after coupon through BuyDIG.

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.
