Imported/Grey Market Nikon D610 body for $1200 (seller warranty)

Also one of the featured eBay Deals is the new condition imported/grey-marked Nikon D610 body offered for $1200 with free shipping, with a limit of five per buyer. The seller is bigvalueinc (99.4%). Over 120 cameras got sold through this eBay listing so far.

NOTE: this does not come with a manufacturer warranty. It comes with a one year warranty from the seller. This was part of the D610 with lens kit, but the lens removed. Selling the lens and body separately is more profitable since the bundle has a built-in discount. Some sellers use the term “broken kit” to describe this but it’s an unfortunate term because when a shopper reads “broken”, they run away scared 🙂

The standard Nikon D610 body only kit from authorized Nikon USA dealers goes for $1600 (eg Amazon, B&H Photo), so you have trade-offs, such as $400 vs manufacturer-warranty, authorized Nikon dealers vs eBay sellers and such. It’s up to you to triangulate your risk matrix on deals like this – there’s no one size fits all answer.

Nikon 35mm f1.8 DX for $155 (no manufacturer warranty)

The seller is photovideo4less (99.8% [corrected; not 98.8%]). Nearly 500 lenses got sold through this eBay listing so far. Again, keep in mind this does not come with a manufacturer warranty. For some the risk may be acceptable, a low price simple prime lens is a much smaller risk than a $4000 tilt-shift lens 🙂 For others, it may not. We blog, you decide! This is not a “nanny state” blog – we don’t decide for you 😉

(ENDED) Ends Wedn 3am ET: earn 5% eBay Bucks on $100+ purchases (must opt-in)

This expired… If you are a member of the eBay Bucks rewards program, a new promotion is running until 3am ET on Wednesday 11/19/14. This time you earn 5% eBay Bucks on purchases of $100 or more.

To Los eBay Deals we geaux, where we find the Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens offered for $83 with free shipping, in new condition, by Red Tag Camera, with a limit of five per buyer. There is no mention of a warranty, so to be on the safe side, assume it is a gray market (imported model). Still for many this may be a reasonable risk, a double figured simple prime lens is a much smaller risk than a complicated four figures lens. But it’s up to you – we blog, you decide!… Separately there is a promotion that saves you $5 for every 3 eligible items you buy, all offered by Red Tag Camera – you will see this offer right above the product picture over there…

To the latest eBay Deals we geaux where we find the imported / gra market new condition Nikon Coolpix P530 superzoom offered for $230 with free shipping by eBay seller “bigvalueinc” (99.3%). Please note this does not come with a Nikon USA warranty because it was imported by the seller without their “blessings”. The seller offers their own one year warranty… The new condition price from authorized Nikon dealers is currently $350 (eg Amazonia)… Given the price difference, for some, this may be a reasonable risk. For others not so. We blog, you decide!

UPDATE: if you prefer the comfort of a blessed-by-Nikon USA model, you can get it for $230 with free shipping, in factory refurbished condition from BuyDig’s eBay store. So you can trade-off new/imported vs refurbished/authorized. Thanks to one of our readers for the email alert!
