(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 πŸ™‚

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).

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 πŸ™‚ 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.

Refurbished Nikon D750 body w/90D W for $1200

The Nikon D750 body only goes for $1800 in new condition at authorized Nikon USA dealers such as Amazon and Adorama. But if you want to pay 2/3rds of that price…

Imported Nikon 50mm f1.8D lens for $88 w/FS after coupon

The price before the coupon is $110. There is no warranty with this lens!

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

B&H Photo is offering their house brand Vello BG-N19 Battery Grip for Nikon D850 for $100 with free expedited shipping. This is in-stock and shipping as of the time of writing. Unlike most things Nikon D850 πŸ™‚

Back to the eBay Deals we go, where the Buydig eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D5500 with 18-55 DX VR for $450 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. Limit up to three per eBay customer. Over 420 units have been sold so far per the eBay listing. This is in the black color scheme.

(ENDED) Nikon D850 User Auction ends 3:32pm ET [$2950 as of OP]

This auction ended for $2950 with 62 bids placed…

A quick look at the Stock Status Tracker reminded us that today is the last day of the user-listed Nikon D850 body only auction. As of the time of writing (aka OP as in Original Post as in 10:26am ET), the price is $2950 with 62 bids. Shipping is an extra $13~.

Another Nikon D850 eBay Auction by User: $2800 but ends Monday

Another development from the update of the Stock Status Tracker is another “sale by user” for the Nikon D850 body only. It is in USED condition and an Auction-style eBay Listing. It is currently going for $2800 with 59 bids. It ships from North Carolina for $13, from a 100% eBay user (91 transactions). The auction ends on Monday at 3:32pm eastern. Mayhaps the Superbowl will distract some and the price won’t skyrocket πŸ™‚

In other stock update action, the Panasonic G9 body only is back in-stock at B&H Photo for its starting price of $1700 with free shipping…

(ENDED) KEH Camera Coupon: 8% off USED Canon and Nikon Gear

This 2-day coupon expired…

Canon and Nikon fans, it’s your time at KEH Camera with a two day coupon running until Sunday 2/4/18 at 11:59pm eastern. Coupon code CANNIK02A gets you 8% off used Canon and Nikon camera gear. As usual, their shopping cart is the ultimate decider on what is eligible. Separately, the KEH Camera website offers free shipping on orders of $49 or more (continental 48 US States).

Imported Nikon D850 Body drops to $3250

The second development from the just-updated Stock Status Tracker is that the new condition imported grey market Nikon D850 body only by eBay seller “Deals All Year” has now dropped to $3250. The new condition at authorized Nikon USA dealers is $3300 (and still hard to find).

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 πŸ˜‰

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

Four Left: 36-page Japanese Nikon D850 Brochure for $12.75 w/FS

Quantities are running down, four are left of the time of writing of this, which surfaced while updating the Stock Status Tracker

IF you want a piece of the Nikon D850, but you just don’t want to wait, or pay $3300, the wide world of eBay sellers have an alternative for you! The official Nikon D850 Japanese Brochure. This is no single page leaflet. It is a 36-page color publication, 21 by 29.7cm, roughly 8.25 by 12 inches, with the text in Japanese. It goes for $12.75 with free slow shipping from Japan. Faster shipping is available for $5 more.

Seven units are left. 19 of them have been sold already. There are multiple pictures from inside the brochure in the eBay gallery of the product listing… Screenshot of one of them below:

So you can get the Nikon D850 purchase out of your system, with just a $13 (instead of a $3300) hit on your wallet πŸ™‚

PSA: resist the temptation of Nikon D850 listings by random “Just Launched” sellers!

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and the situation remains. The Sony a7r III is in-stock at multiple authorized dealers, while the Nikon D850 remains elusive.

The pull for the hard to find Nikon D850 may be strong but resist the temptation to do something very risky/stupid, like buying the camera from random “Just Launched” sellers that offer it on Amazon. Nothing good will come out of such a purchase for you. Resist the temptation! Unfortunately these keep popping up faster than Amazon can take them down.

Imported Nikon D850 Body “drops” to $3400

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and there is a “discount” on the limited availability premium of the Nikon D850. The camera’s official price is $3300 at authorized dealers, but it went over $3500 by importers who had it in-stock. Now the “limited availability premium” is shrinking, it’s “only” +$100, you can get it in imported grey-market condition with a 1-year seller warranty (not Nikon USA) by eBay seller Deals All Year (New Jersey) for $3400 with free shipping.

Personally I would wait for the Nikon USA authorized dealers, but I am not the Master of the Universe (I am barely the master of my thoughts), I can’t decide for everybody else πŸ™‚

Imported Nikon D850 Body w/1-YR Seller W for $3775

If you really don’t want to wait for the Nikon D850 to come in-stock from authorized Nikon USA dealers for $3300 [check the Stock Status Tracker for that], and you are willing to pay a limited availability premium, and get a 1-year seller warranty (instead of a Nikon USA warranty), then…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “Deals All Year” is offering the new condition Nikon D850 body only for $3775 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the seller, not Nikon USA. Limit one per buyer.

They sold 54 of these, so temptation won over 54 people so far. Personally I wouldn’t buy it, but I’m not the master of the universe, other people have different preferences and priorities πŸ™‚
