Refurbished Nikon D7000 with 18-55 non-VR for $450

We haven’t forgotten about the eBay Deals! Back there we go, where the Buydig eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7000 with 18-55mm non-VR for $450 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer… There are many Nikon DSLR options out there in this price range, so you have many choices to consider considering…

Nikon S2 with 11-27.5mm for $170 (1-System)

The action never stops at the eBay Deals where BuyDig’s eBay store (authorized Nikon dealer) is offering the new condition, in a choice of four different colors, and with a limit of five per customer Nikon J2 with 11-27.5mm for $170 with free shipping. That’s a 1-inch iLC with a lens for $170. Our 2005 selves would probably argue vehemently against such low prices (and new camera system) being realistic in the 2005 forums 😉

Refurbished Nikon S9900 compact-zoom for $230

The Nikon Coolpix S9900 is offered manufacturer refurbished with a 90 day Nikon USA warranty for $230 with free shipping at Groupon Goods. Before I give you the spoiler, take a closer look at that listing. Spoiler in the next paragraph, stop reading if you don’t want to be spoiled :)

The spoiler is… the picture is of a Sony superzoom camera, but everything in the listing is about the Nikon S9900 which may perhaps explain why they only sold one, even though it’s a good price, when you consider the new condition is $300 at Amazon and Best Buy upon eBay et al. The Groupon listing for the new condition Coolpix S9900 has the correct picture.

Imported (grey market) Nikon D4S body only for $4000
