Nikon revealed their CES 2015 cameras, with the new D5500 APS-C DSLR ($900 body only, $1000 w/18-55, $1200 w/18-135; black or red), along with a new 300mm f4 VR lens ($2000), and a new 55-200mm f4-5.6 DX VR II lens ($350). All these are available for pre-order at Amazon. No shipping estimates yet.
PS: you can compare and contract prices with other competing APS-C dSLRs using the APS-C Price Chart.
The refurbished Nikon D4 body only is currently going for $4000 with free shipping and 90 days Nikon warranty at Adorama as part of their refurbished specials (132 items; look for prices in red ink).
On the double-figure superzooms front, the certified refurbished black Nikon Coolpix L620 is going for $70 with free shipping by Beach Camera at Amazon with the order fulfilled by Amazon, so it is eligible for free 2-day Prime shipping and such.
The waterproof Nikon AW1 with the 11-27.5mm lens goes for $700 in new condition at authorized dealers, but if you want to go refurbished, the white refurbished with 90-day Nikon warranty goes for $520 with free shipping at Adorama.
The current iteration of the Nikon Instant Rebates and Canon Instant and Mail-In Rebates are expiring on January 3 in 2015 and won’t be extended in their current iteration.
B&H Photo is currently offering the refurbished Nikon D610 body only for $1300 with free expedited shipping and with the usual 90-day B&H Photo warranty (not refurbished-Nikon-USA warranty) [corrected 1/1/15! Thanks to one of our readers for the alert!]. The new condition goes for $1500 (see 35mm Full Frame Price Chart for price research).
Amazon is slowly but steadily building up inventory on certified refurbished cameras (and other products), sold and shipped by Amazon herself. One of them coming up is the refurbished Nikon D5300 w/18-55 going for $580 with free shipping. There is no release estimate at the moment.
If you happen to be looking for the Nikon D3 body only kit, it is available manufacturer-refurbished with a 90 day Nikon warranty at Adorama and by Adorama on eBay… Speaking of old school Nikon DSLRs, the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D2X is available for $1500 with free shipping at Adorama.
PS: these surfaced while I was price-checking other cameras for the Camera Price Charts – in case this post feels like a random blast from the past
If you have one of the compatible Nikon 1-System CX cameras, the Nikon WP-N1 waterproof housing is currently on sale for $97 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo.
If you are interested in the Nikon A, we have good-news/bad-news for you. We start with the bad news: the silver Adorama bundle with four extras for $400 is sold-out and no longer orderable. Also, Amazon’s lowest price is now $460.
The good news now: if you want the Nikon A and the DF-CP1 OVF optical viewfinder, the black Nikon A bundle has dropped from $570 to $520 at B&H Photo.
If you prefer the silver Nikon A and the DF-CP1 OVF, at B&H Photo, you can click the “Save $300 On Nikon DF-CP1 Optical Viewfinder” under “Savings Available” and add it. This allows you to add the DF-CP1 OVF kit for +$100. So $400 + $100 = $500.
If you prefer the silver Nikon A without any extras, it continues to sell for $400 at B&H Photo and Best Buy (store pickup).

Only this Nikon bundle is going for $900. The other versions go for $950… I don’t know if it is a price error or a specific sale or a price-match.
