In-Stock at Two Authorized: Nikon D850 Filmmaker’s Kit

Another update from the Stock Status Tracker the official Nikon D850 filmmaker’s kit is now in-stock and ready to ship for $5550 at B&H Photo and Adorama… Note that both stores will be closed from Friday PM until Monday night, so if you need this to ship right away, order before the upcoming holiday closing!

Nikon D850 body available USED for $3150 and NEW for $3300

Today’s update of the Stock Status Tracker has an interesting development! The Nikon D850 is available for purchase in USED condition for $3150 or NEW condition for $3300 at KEH Camera. I don’t remember my KEH password, so I don’t know what the shipping estimate is for these two options…

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.

PS: if you prefer imported grey-market in new condition, you can get it for $3050 by 6ave’s eBay store

Stock Updates: D850 Filmmaker In-Stock for $5500

Today’s update of the Stock Tracker continues to have the a7 III and D850 body onlies out of stock at their normal prices at authorized USA dealers, but if you are looking for the D850 Filmmaker’s Kit, it is back in-stock from a different authorized dealer, Helix Camera on eBAY, an authorized Nikon B&M dealer in Illinois.

Stock Update: D850/a7 III hard to find; G9, X-H1, K-1 II retired

Today’s update of the Stock Status Tracker has status quo fro the Sony a7 III kits and the Nikon D850 body only, they continue to be hard to find in-stock at their normal price at authorized dealers. But if you want the D850 filmmaker’s kit, there is one unit available for $5500 by Kenmore on eBAY.

Meanwhile the Pentax K-1 II, Fuji X-H1 and Panasonic G9 had been steadily in-stock and at the same prices, so I “retired” them from the Stock tracker. However, I save all the “retired” entries, so in case something changes in the future and they need to be brought back, they can be brought back in a flash.

In-Stock Again: Nikon D850 Filmmaker’s Kit for $5500 [one unit]

The early AM update of the Stock Status Tracker also has good news for fans of the official Nikon D850 Filmmaker’s kit! B&H Photo is now out of stock, but there is one unit available for the same price of $5500 at Kenmore Camera’s eBay store.

USED Update: Panasonic G9 for $1409, Fuji X-H1 for $1662

The USED Panasonic G9 is now down to $1409 in “Used – Condition 9” at B&H Photo. The new condition price is $1700 but comes with the official Panasonic battery grip at select authorized dealers, thus pushing USED prices down…

Meanwhile the Fuji X-H1 body only is down to $1662 in “Used – Very Good” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals (cosmetic imperfection; damaged original packaging)

(SOLD OUT) In-Stock Now: Nikon D850 Filmmaker’s Kit for $5500

Sony a7 III estimate “improves” to 2-5 weeks

The silver lining good news of today’s update of the Stock Status Tracker is that the Amazon estimates for both the sony a7 III body only and the a7 III w/28-70 have “improved” from “1 to 2 months” to “2 to 5 weeks”. This is still a nebulous estimate, so keep that in mind if you need the camera by a specific date.

FREE Overnight Shipping for Pentax K-1 II

Today’s update of the Stock Status Tracker has more good news for Pentax K-1 II fans! Adorama is offering FREE Overnight Shipping at the same price of $2000 for both the K-1 II Body Only and also the K-1 II with 28-105 for $2400…

Mission accomplished Pentax fans! An update of the Stock Status Tracker shows the brand new Pentax K-1 II body only is in-stock for its starting price of $2000 at Adorama and Amazon itself (along with 3rd-party sellers) and B&H Photo

If you are a fan of eBay shopping, a number of eBay sellers have it as well: Cameta (eBay) and Adorama (eBay) and Focus (eBay) and Kenmore (eBay)

If you prefer the “take pictures with” kit that comes with the 28-105 lens, that too is in-stock for its starting price of $2400 at Adorama and B&H Photo

In-Stock Now: both Pentax K-1 II kits for $2000 & $2400

This update of the Stock Status Tracker has great news for fans of B&H Photo and the new Pentax K-1 II body only 35mm full frame DSLR! As of the time of writing, both kits are in-stock and shipping: the K-1 II body only goes for $2000 with free shipping while the K-1 II with 28-105 goes for $2400 with free shipping.

Bad news however for the a7 III with 28-70 FE, it is now out of stock, just like the body only…

Stock Updates: FREE Grip w/Pana G9, K1-II, a7 III Coming Up

Today’s Stock Status Update has more places offering the Panasonic G9 body only getting the Panasonic DMW-BGG9 Vertical Battery Grip for FREE, at the same price of $1700 with free shipping at Amazon itself and Adorama and B&H Photo

Meanwhile the estimated release dates continue to be Monday April 10 for the Sony a7 III and Tuesday April 11 for the Pentax K-1 II. But if you don’t want to wait, Kenmore Camera has one unit available of the K-1 II for $2000 with free shipping.

Stock Updates: FREE Overnight on Sony a7 III Pre-Orders; Etc

An early bird update of the Stock Status Tracker has two new developments since our last mention:

+ Sony a7 III body pre-orders for the standard price of $2000 at Adorama get FREE Overnight shipping (when the camera is in-stock; obviously they can’t ship it before it becomes available, so if you order today, you won’t get the camera tomorrow; but when it comes in-stock, it will ship with free overnight shipping)

+ B&H Photo too is now offering a FREE Fuji-Domke F-803 camera bag with Fuji X-H1 purchases for $1900, just like Adorama
+ no free bags at Amazon – Bezos is hoarding them so he can fuel his rockets with them 🙂

Stock Updates: Sony a7 III added to Tracker; G9/D850 outages; X-H1 everywhere

We have just updated the Stock Status Tracker with the following developments as of the time of writing:

+ I added the Sony a7 III to the tracker. Its release estimate is April 10, but estimates are estimates

+ the Panasonic G9 is sold out, new and used, Amazon is not even accepting pre-orders at the moment

+ the Nikon D850 importers have gone drunk with their prices skyrocketing well above $3300

+ the Pentax K-1 II estimate remains April 11, still offering a free battery grip with preorders

+ the Fuji X-H1 is now in-stock at all tracked retailers including Adorama (with FREE Domke-Fuji F803 bag) and B&H Photo and Amazon itself and Kenmore (eBay)

Pentax K-1 II added to the Stock Status Tracker

Today is the most productive day of 2018 so far blog-wise it seems. I just added the brand new Pentax K-1 II full frame DSLR to the Stock Status Tracker. And since our pre-order post, we have another development, now B&H Photo too is offering a free Pentax D-BG6 battery grip with pre-orders.

I also did some remodeling in the sidebars and menus of both this blog and the Main blog, mainly to add the new Cameras and Lenses of 2018 tracking page, along with the brand new (in progress) Price Charts series.

Stock Tracker Update: Added X-H1, Removed X100S, a7r III; [G9 out of stock, D850 imported skyrockets]

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and we have two sets of news.

On the meta front, the Fuji X-H1 has been added to the Tracker [already has a deal, free Domke F-803 camera bag with pre-order for the same price of $1900 at Adorama], while the Fuji X100S and the Sony a7r III have been removed as they had been steadily in-stock and had stable new and used prices. But fear not, the entries are saved, so if they happen to run out, I can quickly add them back on…

On the actual stock updates front, the Panasonic G9 is now out of stock (despite the multiple new camera announcements from Panasonica), while the imported Nikon D850 prices skyrocketed from $3230 to $3800.

If there are any upcoming cameras and lenses you’d like to see us keep track off, please leave a comment or use the online contact form. Your feedback helps determine which cameras and lenses are covered!

Stock Updates: Used Sony a7r III for $2958, Used Fuji X100F for $1050, Panasonic G9 starting to run out

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and the new developments since our previous update are the following:

+ USED Sony a7r III body for $2958 by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself

+ USED Fuji X100F black for $1050 in Condition 9 at B&H Photo
+ when their used options sell out, the used listing will automatically redirect to the new condition listing

+ Panasonic G9 supplies starting to run out but it remains in-stock for $1700 by BuyDiG on EBAY and by 3rd Party Sellers through Amazon

Imported Nikon D850 Body with 1-Year Seller Warranty for $3280

Another day, another update of the Stock Status Tracker and we have some action on the Nikon D850 body only. The camera is offered in new condition, imported grey-market with a 1-year seller warranty for $2280 with free shipping by eBay seller Deals All Year (99.8%, New Jersey, up to three per customer).

The new condition price at authorized Nikon USA dealers is $3300.

Stock Updates: Panasonic G9, Sony a7r III, Fuji X100f

I did not check earlier in the day to see what happened, but as of this update, the Panasonic G9 is marked as “temporarily out of stock” at Amazon (aka TOOS), an all-encompassing anything that could mean anything. Meanwhile at B&H Photo it is “Coming Soon”. Both previously had a January 15 estimate.

On the Sony a7r III front, the camera is back in-stock at Adorama, while B&H and Amazon itself continue to be out of stock. However a variety of authorized dealers also have it in-stock through eBay and thru Amazon.

The Nikon D850 remains elusive, but at least you can get official Japanese brochure/booklet for $13 shipped 🙂

The Amazon discount is over for the X100F silver, but you can still get a $100 gift card from Focus. Check the X100F segment of the Stock Status Tracker for those.

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.

Sony a7r III body now in-stock by Amazon itself too

Happy New Year with a Stock Status Tracker update!

The Nikon D850 body only remains elusive, but the Sony a7r III body is available at even more places, now you can get it from Amazon by Amazon itself for $3200, especially of interest if you have Amazon gift cards or paying with a credit card that gets you 5% uncapped credit card rewards on Amazon purchases.

Or if you prefer blazing fast delivery, Adorama continues to offer free overnight delivery, but B&H no longer does.

Sony a7r III Body Still In-Stock: Supplies ReLoaded!

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and the situation is this for the three currently tracked cameras:

+ used Fuji X100F prices have gone up as hungry holiday shoppers nom-nom’ed the used inventory at various sellers

+ the Nikon D850 body is out of stock at authorized dealers for $3300, while the importers are now $20 under the authorized dealer price

+ Adorama sold out of the Sony a7r III body but it continues to be in-stock and with FREE NEXT-DAY DELIVERY at B&H Photo (expires Thursday 2pm ET)
+ also in-stock for $3200 by DataVision thru Amazon (not Prime eligible)

Stock Status Tracker Updated

The Stock Status Tracker has just updated with the latest situation with the tracked cameras. Check over there for all the details and fluctuations.

If it looks smaller/shorter than since the last time you looked at it, you are correct! I recently removed the Fuji X-T1 kits (the FREE 35mm f2R promotion expired and prices went up), and the Fuji X-T2 kits (the stock situation and the prices have been steady for quite a few weeks).

If you have any un-released or hard-to-find cameras you’d like us to keep track off, please leave a comment here or there [the Stock Status Tracker] or use the online contact form or the Twitter.

Stock Updates: Fuji X-T2 Graphite Back In-Stock; USED Fuji X100F for $1202 (either color); Etc

We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and here are some of the changes since our previous update.

The Fuji X-T2 Graphite body only is now back in-stock at multiple retailers at its usual price of $1800 including B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon (3rd parties). Or if you are comfortable with USED condition, you can get it for $1614 by 6ave thru Amazon.

Meanwhile B&H Photo has sold out of some good USED prices they previously had on the Panasonic GH5 and Fuji GFX-50S and X100F.

Speaking of the Fuji X100F, the situation is currently as follows:

The black Fuji X100F is available in USED “Like New” condition (listing has pictures of the used model) for $1202~ by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself or $1300 in new condition at various authorized dealers including B&H Photo and OneCall and Adorama.

The silver Fuji X100F is also available in USED “Like New” condition (listing has pictures of the used model) for $1202~ by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself ($1202). Or if you prefer new condition from authorized dealers, many currently have it including Amazon itself and Samy’s (eBay) and Best Buy (eBay) and Kenmore (eBay)

The other tracked cameras are in status quo. The Nikon D7500 kits and the Panasonic GH5 are steadily in-stock.

With taxes finally done (don’t forget, Tuesday is the deadline for both the 2016 Tax Year and the first quarterly payment estimate for 2017), it is time to focus (pun intended) on the Stock Status Tracker. The bad news first, the Panasonic GH5 is out of stock at all the retailers I checked. The rest of the cameras tracked are good news for availability (bad news for your tax refund and/or wallet).

The Fuji X-T2 body only is back in-stock at Amazon by Amazon itself and a couple of 3rd-party sellers over there. The Prime-only restrictions are only for items sold and shipped by Amazon itself. 3rd-party sellers are happy to sell to anyone and everyone willing to pay 🙂 It is also in-stock at B&H Photo but note that orders will ship April 19+ even if you select overnight shipping!

The Canon 77D has been steadily in-stock every time I checked, the BuyDig bundle with a handful of accessories (3rd-party flash, converter lenses, filters ,bag, 64GB card, remote, and the usual assortment of trinkets (card reader, cleaning kit, microfiber cloth, air blower) included for the same price of $900.

Multiple Olympus E-M1 II Options

+ USED (Demo Condition) for $1859 + S&H at Adorama

+ USED (Like New Condition) for $1879 by Cardinal (via Amazon)
+ NOTE: ignore/AVOID those “Just Launched” sellers at Amazon that offer it for less. They are trolling/phishing for customer/financial data

+ NEW CONDITION but you can negotiate using eBay’s Built-In and Blessed “Best Offer” process by Pixel Connection (starting price is $2000)

Panasonic GH5 In-Stock with Free Accessories for $2000

Another update of the Stock Status Tracker has the first wave of free accessories bundled with the Panasonic GH5 body only at its normal price of $2000 with free shipping. PS: if you find these stock alerts/updates useful, please consider making your new camera gear purchases through our affiliate links – it is the main method of funding this poor old blog!

Stock Update: Panasonic GH5 with Extras for $2100; Used Fuji X-T2 Graphite for $1665

Another update of the Stock Status Tracker has two new updates on the Panasonic GH5 and Fuji X-T2 front!

On the Panasonic GH5 front, the body only kit is bundled with a dizzying variety of extra small accessories for $2100 with free shipping by BuyDig on eBay: a Vivitar flash, Vivitar battery and charger, Vivitar bag, Corel Paintshop PRO X8 software, 64GB Lexar SDXC 300x card, spider tripod, and cables and cleaning supplies.

On the Fuji X-T2 front, the Graphite Body Only is available for $1665 in “Used – Like New” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself, Amazon’s own used products persona. They even have two pictures of the actual item.

As usual, supplies of both used and high-demand new products are limited, so it may be sold out by the time you read this.

Panasonic GH5 added to the Stock Tracker

It’s almost time, the official release estimate for the Panasonic GH5 is March 30 (2017), so I just added to the Stock Status Tracker. It is currently available for pre-order for its starting price of $2000 at Amazon itself (March 30) and Adorama and B&H Photo. You can also dive into the Wild West of eBay.

In-Stock Update: some Fuji X-T2 kits, Olympus E-M1 II

We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and as of this update, the following camera kits are in-stock:

+ Olympus E-M1 II body for $2000 by Wolfe Camera via Amazon
+ Fuji X-T2 body only for $1600 by Amazon itself
+ Fuji X-T2 with 18-55 for $1900 by Amazon itself

If you are comfortable with used cameras, the Fuji X-T2 body only is available in “Used – Like New” condition for $1479 by Amazon Warehouse Deals.

Stock Updates: Olympus E-M1 II by some, Fuji X-T2 not

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and the current situation is this: the Fuji X-T2 is not currently in-stock but a variety of 3rd-party sellers have the Olympus E-M1 II body only in-stock-ish for its normal price of $2000 through Amazon.

Stock Update: E-M1 II with +$100 premium [updated]

The previously mentioned eBay auction closed at $1550 with 15 bids. As to the current situation, I just updated the Stocks Status Tracker and the situation is this:

+ Olympus E-M1 II body in-stock with a $100 $200 premium ($2100 $2200 instead of $2000) by Cardinal thru Amazon
+ this is one of the issues with MAP; online retailers are not effectively allowed to sell for less than MAP, but the sky is the limit on how high the price can go. If you are going to limit how low the price can get, it’s only fair to also limit how high it can go 🙂

+ this sold out again: used Fuji X-T2 with 18-55 with a 3-year warranty for $1939 by Cardinal Photo thru Amazon

(OLDER POST) Stock Update: Fuji X-T2 Auction continues, Used options with 3yr warranty; Olympus E-M1 II: movement but not in-stock right now

This is an older post… For future updates, check the Stock Status Tracker

Fuji X-T2 Body Only eBay Auction: $1250 (6 bids, ends Tue PM)

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker. On the Fuji X-T2 body, an eBay Auction is currently in progress with a current price of $1250 and 6 bids but the auction ends on Tuesday at 12:42pm eastern, which is an eternity for auctions. This is described as “New Other” with the original box not included. This is by an individual eBay seller with 100% feedback.

Meanwhile the Olympus E-M1 II body only is on track for a December 12 release, with pre-orders accepted at Amazon and B&H Photo and Adorama.

Stock Update: Olympus E-M1 II estimate moves to December 12

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and it looks like the Olympus E-M1 II estimate is shifting deeper into December, it went from December 2 to 12 at two of the three retailers tracked. Amazon remains December 2nd but it’s possible that they haven’t updated their website with the new info yet, but Amazon is often slightly behind the specialty retailers in time-sensitive updates of this nature.

The IN (Pana G85, Sony RX100 V) and OUT (Fuji X-T2, Oly E-M1 II) Report

We just updated the Stocks Status Tracker and the situation is split. The Panasonic G85 and Sony RX100 V are steadily in-stock at their normal prices at multiple authorized dealers, while the Fuji X-T2 is out of stock (well-known dealers have the body only for $1900 to $2000 though; its regular price is $1600). The Olympus E-M1 II is scheduled for a December 2nd release.

Stock Update: more Panasonic G85, Fuji X-T2 at higher prices, Sony RX100 V steady

We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and have these latest developments:

+ more Panasonic G85 inventory, the G85 w/12-60mm is in-stock for $1000 by B&H Photo and 3rd-parties thru Amazon

+ both Fuji X-T2 kits are in-stock HOWEVER the offering retailers ask for $300 more on the body-only and $100 more the w/18-55 kit

+ the Sony RX100 V is steadily in-stock everywhere and has been moved to the bottom of the Stock Status Tracker

Panasonic G85 expected to start shipping October 25

We just added the Panasonic G85 (not to be confused with the GX85) to the Stock Status Tracker. Two retailers, Amazon and Adorama plan to have it in-stock on October 25. It is available in two options, body only for $900, bundled with the 12-60 for $1000… Meanwhile the Fuji X-T2 remains out of stock, but Amazon’s floating estimate has narrowed a bit to “2 to 4 weeks” instead of “1 to 2 months”… Meanwhile, in between meanwhile statements, the $1000 Sony RX100 V has an October 28 release estimate at Amazon and B&H Photo

Stock Update: Fuji X-T2 continues to be elusive, Canons steadily in-stock

Changes at the Stock Status Tracker, both Canon 5D Mark IV and G7 X II have been steadily in-stock so they have been archived from the Stock Tracker. New cameras (from the pool of currently unreleased ones) will be added soon… Meanwhile the Fuji X-T2 continues to be elusive at the moment… Regardless, if a camera happens to run out of stock in the future, I will re-add it to the Stock Tracker…

PS: is anyone interested in a separate version of the Stock Tracker that has the Archived Cameras for reference? The Archived version would NOT be updated though.

The IN (Canon 5D Mark IV, G7X II) and OUT (Fuji X-T2) Report

We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and the situation is this for the tracked cameras:

  • Fuji X-T2: out of stock everywhere I checked
  • Canon G7 X II: in-stock both as standard kit for $700 or bundled with the 1TB CS100 for $769 (Adorama)
  • Canon 5D Mark IV Body Only: in-stock steadily now at multiple retailers, it just came in-stock at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of three per customer
