Four Thirds price-check: 12-60mm SWD, E3, E30, E620 and E520

Time for a Four Thirds price-check. The Olympus 12-60mm f2.8-4 SWD lens sold out at under $700 at B&H Photo and J&R World, the price went up to $770+ at Amazon, however, Adorama saves the day as they have it in-stock for $692. As we mentioned J&R World sold out, but you can still order it if you want to lock the $692 price.

E30 and E3
On the E30 front, the body only goes for $900, but so does the E30 + 14-42mm kit from Amazon. So you are getting the lens for free, which you can always sell, trade, donate or gift if you don't want.

The E3 body-only remains at around $1050, or if you are not afraid of refurbished, Adorama has the refurbished E3 body for $950.

One more thing - if you were considering the E3 or E30 bundled with the 12-60mm SWD lens, be sure to do the math - with the lens on its own under $700, you are likely to get a better price if you buy them separately!

E620 and E520
As usual with Olympus DSLR kits, the E620 two-lens kit at $639 at Adorama and B&H Photo is the bang for the buck. The one-lens kit goes for around $75 less, so it makes more sense to get the two-lens kit. Unless you already have a set of 4/3rds lenses and don't want to deal with selling/trading kit lenses, in which case, you can get the E620 body only for $491 from B&H Photo.

The E520 has four main retail kits. The body-only goes for $400, but for $20 more, you can get the one lens kit. Yes, $420 :) But as usual, the best bang for the buck is the two-lens kit going for $484 by Beach on Amazon. There is also the zoomier two-lens kit (14-42mm, 70-300) and that one goes for around $650.

As usual...
Please note that prices and availability are as of the time of writing and they are not updated automatically. A blog is a snapshot in time, not a permanent tracker of everything ever mentioned...

Nikon DSLR Price check

Another feature that might be helpful to our readers now that we are using special-interest sub-feeds is Price Checks. Check the bottom of this post for a poll asking whether you like "price checks".

With prices going up or trending sideways, this is a good time to take a "snapshot" of the latest prices, if nothing else, for reference purposes. So here we go, we'll present the best 1-2 prices for each DSLR among the reputable retailers we track. Unless otherwise stated, free shipping is included, although for a camera like the D700, you may want to get it right away, instead of having it float in UPS or USPS space for days :)

Due to time constraints, we were not able to price-check every available Nikon-mount DSLR model.

Nikon D3 [reviews]
+ Body-only: $4200 at Amazon (sold and shipped by Amazon itself) and BuyDig.com (with bonus 8gb Extreme III 30MB/s CF card), $4350+ at most other places

Nikon D90 [reviews]
+ Body Only: $890 at most places
+ with 18-105mm DX VR: $1135 with free 8gb SD card at BuyDig.com, $1150 at most of the other places

Nikon D700 [reviews]
+ Body Only: $2350 at Amazon and BuyDig.com (includes bonus 4gb CF card), $2400 at B&H, Adorama, Calumet
+ with 24-120 VR: $2852 at Amazon, $2875 at Adorama, $2900 at B&H and Calumet

Nikon D60 (regular edition) [reviews]
+ Body Only: $471 plus $9 shipping by Cameta on Amazon. Black Gold is cheaper (see below)
+ with 18-55 DX VR: $519 with free card at BuyDig.com, $530 at B&H Photo and Adorama, around $540-$550 at most places
+ two-lens kit (18-55, 55-200, both DX VR): around $700 at most places including all that sell it at Amazon

Nikon D60 (Black Gold edition)
+ Body Only (Black Gold): $425 at Adorama, $430 with 2gb SD card at BuyDig.com
+ with 18-55 DX VR (Black Gold): $530 at B&H Photo, Adorama, $540 to $550 at most other places

Nikon D40 [reviews]
+ with 18-55 DX (non-VR): $410 at Amazon, Calumet (plus S&H), B&H Photo, Adorama, etc
+ two lens kit (18-55 DX, 55-200 DX): $500 plus S&H at Calumet, up to $550 at most places
+ two lens kit (18-55 DX, 55-200 DX VR): $550 at B&H Photo, Calumet, etc
+ with 18-135 DX lens: $640 at Adorama
+ there are way too many kit combinations for this model

1. Prices are as of the time of writing and may change by the time you read this
2. With an extensive post like this, the possibility of typos increases. Please let us know if you notice any errors
3. Because everyone can sell at Amazon.com, we recommend only buying from Amazon itself and well-known 3rd party sellers (J&R, Adorama, Crutchfield, Vanns, OneCall, 17th Street, Norman, etc, etc). If you are not familiar with a 3rd party seller, be sure to research them in-depth, especially if the price is "great"
4. Some retailers also offer their own kits that include extra items and may be better bang for the buck if you need the extra items. However, if we take into consideration every single independent kit, this post would turn into a 20-page post that wouldn't be particular helpful to anyone except for hard-core number geeks :)
