Nikon D610 body drops to $1500, D810 drops to $3000 [corrected]

If there’s an official Canon discount, there’s must also be a parallel Nikon discount, otherwise the planet will spin off its axis! Nikon too has a new round of discounts, these are more user-friendly though, they are instant-rebates, not mail-in rebates. The Nikon D610 body only goes for $1500, while the Nikon D810 goes for $3000 [corrected; I deducted $300 twice]. The other kits based on these cameras have been discounted appropriately. You can see these nicely organized at Adorama. The promotion expires by the end of day on 12/13/14 per that page. You also get free overnight shipping!
