Adorama has another refurbished Nikon flash sale, this time it is the manufacturer refurbished Nikon Coolpix S7000 in the black color scheme going for $89 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. This has a 20x optical zoom lens. A 20x optical zoom camera for under $200. Once upon a time you couldn’t even get a 1x zoom for that 🙂
The manufacturer refurbished Nikon 55-300mm DX VR lens is offered for $209 with free shipping by BuyDig on eBay among the latest eBay Deals, but you can get it for even less than that, $200 with free shipping is currently what Adorama charges. Optionally you can add Elements 15 for +$70 (expand the yellow “Special Offer” area. As usual, manufacturer refurbished Nikon camera gear come with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.
The official BuyDig eBay store is running a new promotion, Buy One Item, Get The Second One for 10% off. A total of 49 certified refurbished cameras and lenses are participating including Nikon DSLR lenses, the Olympus E-M5 and E-M10 Mark IIs, the E-PL5, various Nikon APS-C dSLRs up to the D7200, and a few Coolpixes too up to the P900 uber-zoom.
NOTE: you must purchase two items for this promotion. The discount will be applied to the LOWEST PRICE ITEM, so strategically this promotion maximizes your savings if the two items are as close in price as possible.
The Nikon D7200 body only goes for $1000 with free accessories at authorized dealers (eg Adorama) or if you get the body only manufacturer refurbished it goes for $790 (eg B&H Photo). However, if you are interested in a bang for the buck kit…
… to the eBay deals we go again where the Beach Camera eBay Store (New Jersey) is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7200 Two-Lens Kit for $850 with free shipping. It includes the 18-55 and 55-200 lenses, both DX VR. All included items are manufacturer refurbished with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.
You don’t necessarily have to use the 18-55 and 55-200 lenses with the D7200. You can use them with other cameras, give them to friends or family, trade/sell them in locally or online, use them to perform camera experiments, keep them as an emergency lens in the trunk of the camera, and so forth.
The Nikon 50mm f1.8G full frame lens goes for $217 at authorized dealers that also include free accessories OR promotional rewards with it (eg various options at Adorama).
But if you are comfortable with imported grey-market lenses, and you don’t need the extra accessories/rewards, then off to the Trending eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “Deals All Year” (99.8%, New Jersey) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Nikon 50mm f1.8G for $172 with free shipping and a 1-year seller warranty (not a Nikon USA warranty).

Both kits are in-stock and ready to ship with free shipping. The lenses are the same as before, the 35mm f1.8G AF-S DX non-VR and 85mm f3.5G AF-S ED VR DX Micro (= Macro in Nikon-speak).
While the new Nikon D3400 kit options were straightforward, things are a bit more complicated in the new AF-P Nikon lenses. Two different lenses are available in two different options each, with and without VR. An interesting decision here, perhaps with an eye towards bundling them in different ways and discounting them? Regardless..
… the four new AF-P lenses are now available for pre-order as follows:
These have been added to the new Interesting New Lenses of 2016 tracking page. We no longer track most non-RAW P&S fixed lens digital cameras over there.
