The Nikon DSLR deal that appears in many of the Black Friday Ads is the Nikon D3300 two-lens VR kit (18-55, 55-200, both VR) for $500. The internets have now matched that deal, you can get the kit, with a wireless adapter, remote controller, 16GB card and $10~ promotional rewards for $500 at Adorama… Optionally you can add additional Nikon SLR lenses for a combined purchase discount (see the yellow “Special Offer” section)… Contrasting that, the D3200 2-lens VR kit goes for $400…
The Nikon D3200 is a stubborn DSLR. It refuses to go away. It even finds itself in the Black Friday spotlight. The Nikon D3200 two-lens DX VR kit (18-55, 55-200) is now on sale for $400 with frees shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 5) and Adorama and B&H Photo et al.
NOTE: the newer Nikon D3300 two-lens VR kit will be offered for $500 during Black Friday (currently goes for $600). So there’s a $100 trade-off price-wise between the D3200 and D3300 two-lens VR kits.
Another decision point is whether you need the two DX VR lenses or not. You can get the D3200 body only in refurbished condition with a 90 day Nikon warranty for $245 at Adorama.
Another data point, you can get the D3200 two-lens kit with the non-VR lenses, in manufacturer refurbished condition for $300 by BuyDig on eBay.
Zoom-zoom, the Nikon Coolpix P610 superzoom (60x optical) with Wi-Fi and NFC (but not cellular radio) is on sale for $400 with free shipping at authorized dealers, but that’s not all, Adorama is bundling with it a free Lowepro Rezo TLZ-10 holster, a 16GB SD memory card, and a cleaning kit. The camera is available in black or red.
The latest incarnation of the Nikon DSLR Instant Savings is now updated at B&H Photo, organized by DSLR camera, so you can go down the line (left sidebar) and check the options available for each model. Many of the offers shown there expire 11/25/15.
If you are a fan of Prime Nikon lenses, two of them are bundled together for $500 with free shipping at Adorama. It is the 35mm f1.8G AF-S DX Lens and the 85mm f3.5G AF-S ED VR DX Micro. No coupons, no rebates, just add to cart and checkout.
UPDATE: this offer is also available at B&H Photo.
UPDATE #2: this is also available at Amazon by Amazon itself.
If you are interested in beginner’s DSLR kit with VR lenses only, Adorama is offering the Nikon D3200 with 18-55 & 55-200 kit, with both lenses VR (stabilized) for $400 with free shipping… There are many options in the Nikon APS-C world, especially if you are open to refurbished and/or used, so trade-offs, trade-offs… UPDATE: the same offer is also available at B&H Photo…
The new condition red Nikon S2 with the 11-27.5mm kit lens, part of the 1-System, is currently on sale for $250 with free shipping by Beach Camera on Amazon. This ships from Beach (NJ), so it is not eligible for Prime shipping benefits. The other color schemes go for $300+… This too surfaced while price-checking for the price-charts (which is why it is/was important to do these!)…
Another potentially interest discount surfacing during the price-charts price-checking. Nikon is artificially keeping the price of the AW1 with 11-27.5mm at $700 (same price as in December 2014 when we did the previous price chart)… But if you want to get the kit, you can get it in refurbished condition, in the white color scheme, for $430 with free shipping and a 90 day Nikon USA warranty by Adorama.
While doing the price research for the APS-C DSLR edition of the Price Charts (coming before midnight tonight other things equal) I spotted this potentially interesting (among dozens of combinations/options out there mind you) Nikon D3200 new condition two lens kit with the 18-55 and 55-200 DX non-VR lenses. Neither lens is stabilized, so keep that in mind. It goes for $500 by Adorama on Amazon and B&H Photo (currently out of stock and cannot be ordered; ends 11/20/15 4:30pm)… The w/18-55 goes for $450 but it’s a VR lens…
While doing the price research for the APS-C DSLR edition of the Price Charts (coming before midnight tonight other things equal) I spotted this potentially interesting used camera offer for the Nikon completists, the Nikon D300 body only in “Used – G rating” condition for $159 plus shipping (under $10 typically) at Adorama… If you are not familiar with their rating system, click on the “Used – Rating G” link over there to see a detailed description of the various levels…

There are almost as many old Nikon dSLRs (especially when you factor in the refurbished options) as their are old Rock Stars, so you may have some homework to do to figure out which one of the many options to get… If you have decided on the new condition Nikon D5200 with 18-55 DX VR, you can get it for $450 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo as part of their 2-Day Sale ending at the end of day on Tuesday 11/10/15.

, as one of the NewEgg Shell-Shocker deals of the day good until 3am ET on Tuesday or earlier if sold out…
It’s Sunday, with an extra hour to boot, yes, it is a 25 hour Sunday! The microwave timer is probably wrong now? You can use part of that extra hour to take a look at the latest round of Nikon Instant Savings on DSLRs and mostly DSLR-Lenses. Some discount-highlights from Adorama:
+ Nikon 24-85mm f3.5-4.5G ED AF-S VR for $500

+ Nikon 24mm f1.4G AF-S ED for $2000
+ some items also earn Adorama promotional rewards
+ actual prices are *6.95, but I round them for expediency
On a semi-related note, other things equal, a new round of Price Charts will be completed by the end of this week. I have to start on Monday-Tuesday, because there are manufacturer-initiated price-changes on Sundays, and they sometimes propagate at different times at different retailers. PS: please feel free to e-yell at me until it gets published
Adorama launched a trio of refurbished Nikon camera deals as a flash sale.
