Imported Nikon D7200 w/18-140 DX VR w/1yr seller warranty for $900

The Nikon D7200 is no longer the “latest model” in the D7X0 line, the D7500 was announced a few days and it is currently available for pre-order for $1250 as body only – check Stock Status Tracker.

In new condition, it currently goes for $1000 as body only or $1300 with the 18-104mm lens at various authorized dealers, such as Adorama or Amazon or B&H Photo.

However, one school of thought is that once a “newer model” is revealed, it may be a good idea to buy the previous models as refurbished or used or grey-market, to save money on the purchase of a non-latest-model, since you are not riding the Early Adopter Wave.

If you like this approach, one path is refurbished, the D7200 body only is available manufacturer-refurbished with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty at Adorama or $789 with a 90-da7 B&H warranty at B&H Photo.

Another path that will get you more bang for the buck (if you need/want the 18-140mm DX VR lens) is at the eBay Deals du jour where eBay seller 6ave (99.1%, New Jersey) is offering the imported grey-market D7200 with the 18-140mm DX VR lens and a 1-year seller warranty (from 6ave, not Nikon USA) for $900 with free shipping. Limit five per customer.

For the speed-readers, the “1555” in the eBay listing title maybe easily misread as 1855 as in the 18-55 lens. This 1515 is the MPN of this kit, it comes with the 18-140mm lens 🙂 But for whatever reason, the eBay bots or humans picked a YouTube video for the D700 in the middle of the eBay listing instead of the D7200 🙂

PS: I am not sure how a one-paragraph post turned into this 🙂
