Zoom-zoom now with one of the most recent models, the Nikon Coolpix B500 with a 40x optical zoom is currently on sale for $257 at authorized dealers, but Adorama is selling it at the same price with a handful of free items: Lowepro Edit 110 bag, 16GB Delkin SDHC card, 4pk Duracell Coppertop AA batteries, ProOptic cleaning kit, tiny tabletop tripod, and the Corel software kit (which includes AfterShot and PSP).
Best Buy is running another special sale, this time though the offers get revealed depending on your Rewards Level. Yesterday the offers were revealed to Elite Rewards members (those who made $1500+ in annual purchases). Today the sales are open to all MyBestBuy rewards members (it’s free to join). To see the offers, you must be logged on with a Best Buy account that is participating in their Rewards program. Otherwise Mutombo awaits 🙂
Among the offers they have the Nikon Coolpix S33 for $120. The cameras are towards the bottom of the page. The sale prices take a few seconds to overlay in some kind of a sale animation, so depending on how fast your device/connection is, you may not see them quickly. Screenshot crop below:

Back to the eBay Deals again, with another imported camera promotion. eBay seller Photo4Less (99.9%, New York) is offering the imported grey-market Nikon D7200 body only for $750 with free shipping with a limit of five per customer. There is no mention of warranty in the listing, so assume no warranty whatsoever. Over 330 units got sold so far.
At authorized dealers, the D7200 body only kit goes for $1100 and gets various free accessories, such as at Adorama.
It’s back in-stock and ready to ship again, the Nikon Macro and Portrait lens kit (the 35mm f1.8G DX and the 85mm f3.5G DX VR Macro) along with $20 promotional rewards to be used on future purchases are back in-stock at Adorama for $497 with free shipping.
We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and since the previous updates, we have some good news on the Nikon D500 front. The D500 body only is now in-stock at its starting price of $2000 at Amazon by Amazon herself and Adorama and B&H Photo… Meanwhile the D500 w/16-80mm kit is now in-stock at Amazon as well for its obscure price of $3067… On the Canon 1D X II CFAST Kit front, the Adorama website has a LOW STOCK alert, which means it may go out of stock soon (depending on demand as usual since this is a $6000 flagship)… It should go without saying when not mentioned in these alerts, the Pentax K-1 remains out of stock…
PS: if the Stock Status Tracker looks a bit different, it’s because we retired the Nikon D5 kits. They had been steadily in-stock for a number of days in a row, so there is no need to track them any more. If you have any not-yet-released cameras you’d like to see tracked, please leave a comment or use the online contact form.
There are so many Nikon APS-C DSLRs available these days, especially when you factor in the used and refurbished market, which is great for choices, but mayhaps a decision headache.

We are updating the Stock Status Tracker and we have a breaking in-stock news alert, the Nikon D500 body only is currently in-stock for $2000 with free next day delivery at B&H Photo… Meanwhile the estimate at Amazon is now June 16…

This 4-hour sale expired…
We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and the biggest change with this update is that the Nikon D500 body only remains in-stock but has a “low stock” alert at Adorama, so if you have a short term buy-interest in the camera, this is something to consider considering.
To the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller Red Tag Camera (99.9%, ships from Brooklyn) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Nikon D810 body only for $2380 with free shipping. This only gets a 30-day seller warranty and that’s it. This may have been part of a kit with a lens, with the lens removed (to be sold separately for more $profits$).
The offer may be for more high risk offers, if you happen to need accessories or Lightroom 6, you may be better off paying $2800 for the new condition with Nikon USA warranty from Adorama that has three different bundles with free items going for $2800:
+ lots of accessories but no LR6: Green Extreme Extra Battery, 66-inch Takama tripod, Flashpoint remote shutter thing, Flashpoint release cable thing, Lowepro Nova 17L AW shoulder bag, and Corel Software Bundle (five titles including Aftershot PRO 2 and Paintshop PRO X8
+ you get either a 32GB Lexar SDHC or a 32GB Sandisk Extreme microSDXC, there’s conflicting info
+ lots of accessories: replaces Lowepro bag with cleaning kit (I think)
We just updated the Stock Status Tracker and we have good news for Nikon and Canon shooters, both Nikon D500 and both Nikon D5 and both Canon 1D X II kits are currently in-stock at their starting flagship prices… Meanwhile the Pentax K-1 remains in back-order/pre-order status, for example the B&H Photo estimate is July 2016. Well, we K-waited for 10+ years, what’s a few more weeks [sea salt on the open wound!]…
