Nikon D5300 with 18-55 DX VR and 70-300 DX non-VR and Extras for $597

Nikon has many APS-C DSLRs out in the market, and if you are comfortable with manufacturer-refurbished, the options increase so much so that a spreadsheet may be necessary to sort them out. One of these options is a new condition two-lens kit based on the Nikon D5300 for $597. You get the black Nikon D5300 DSLR with the 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G DX VR lens (not the newer VR II as far as I can tell), along with the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED DX (not VR) lens. From here, you get additional freebies based on the retailer.

At Adorama you also receive a Lowepro Format 160 Camera Bag, 16GB Lexar SD card, a Bower 58mm UV filter, a Pro Optic 55mm Digital Essentials Filter kit, two lens cap tethers (one for each included lens), a cleaning kit, and the latest Corel software bundle that includes three photo-related titles: AfterShot 2 Pro, PaintShop Pro X9, VideoStudio 9, plus two more. Note that the Corel software is Windows only! Free expedited shipping.

At B&H Photo, you a 16GB Sandisk ExTrEmE SDHC card, a Ruggard Journey 34 Shoulder Bag (Steve Perry NOT included), 2% promotional rewards to be used in future purchases, and free expedited shipping.

A handful of recognizable sellers offer this kit for $600 through Amazon but no freebies. However, if you are a Prime member and pay with either the Amazon Chase VISA or the Prime Store card, you get 5% cashback on your statement.

On the accessories front, Adorama is offering the Flashpoint Battery Grip for the D5300, D5200, D5100 DSLRs for $20 plus shipping (around $4 based on zipcode).
