The Pentax K-1 II is coming out soon for $2000 with a free battery grip [see Stock Status Tracker]. If you can’t wait or if you prefer the first generation Pentax K-1, its price has now dropped to $1700 at Adorama with free Overnight shipping along with the Pentax D-BG6 battery grip and an extra D-LI90 battery.

PS: the first generation K-1 is eligible for an optional +$550 upgrade to the K-1 II internals later in 2018

Pre-orders begin for new Sony a7 III at 11am ET

Get your e-wallets ready if interested in this one! Pre-orders for the new Sony a7 III body only full frame Sony E-system camera will begin at 11am eastern today (Wednesday 2/28/18) at authorized Sony dealers for $2000 body only or $2200 with the 28-70 lens at B&H Photo and Adorama et al.

You can see how it stacks up price-wise to the rest of the cameras using the:
+ 35mm full frame price charts
+ Mirrorless Price Charts
+ these were created before the a7 III was announced (that’s why it’s not in there; but it will be in the next iteration of these)

Pre-orders for new Sony a7 III start Wedn 11am ET

Sony has plenty of 35mm full frame cameras [see 35mm full frame price charts] but that’s not stopping them from revealing a brand new model! The Sony a7 III body only is now an official product and pre-orders of it will begin on Wednesday 2/28/18 at 11am eastern at authorized Sony dealers.

The starting price is $2000 for the body only, and $2200 for the kit with the 28-70mm lens. A listing for the camera is available at B&H Photo and Adorama with the pre-ordering option activating on Wednesday at 11am eastern.

This has been added to the New Cameras of 2018 tracking page and has given mirrorless cameras a 7-1 lead over DSLRs in 2018.

Sony a7r II + Flashpoint Zoom R2 Flash for $2400

With the release of the new Sony a7r III, the a7r II body only dropped in price, currently going for $2400 [see 35mm Full Frame Price Charts], but that’s not all, Adorama is bundling it with a FREE Flashpoint Zoom Li-on R2 TTL On-Camera Flash Speedlight for Sony, together going for the same authorized dealer price of $2400 with free expedited shipping. This too is part of their WPPI specials.

Select Canon Full Frame DSLRs get FREE 4TB HDD and 64GB Sandisk Extreme card

Select Canon 35mm full frame DSLRs get a free 4TB WD external hard disk and a 64GB Sandisk Extreme card included automatically by B&H Photo as part of their WPPI festivities.

Pentax K-1 Getting $550 Optional Upgrade with K-1 II Internals

Putting to shame larger camera manufacturers, Pentax announced that existing Pentax K-1 photographers (this is a two year old camera, announced February 2016 [see New Cameras of 2016]) won’t be left behind! They are offering an optional $550 hardware upgrade to the K-1 that will give it the K-1 II internals. The service will be provided by the trusty Precision Camera of Austin::Texas between May 21 and September 30 in 2018. The service won’t be available before or after this date range. Details at the press release which describes the changes as follows (with more details as we get closer to upgrade time):

“The PENTAX K-1’s main circuit board will be replaced to add new functions featured in the new PENTAX K-1 MKII. Additionally the current SR logo on the PENTAX K-1 MKII will be replaced with the new PENTAX K-1 MKII logo.”

Speaking of the upcoming K-1 II, Amazon itself is now accepting pre-orders for $2000 but unlike Adorama and B&H Photo, Amazon does not currently include the Pentax D-BG6 for FREE with pre-orders. Eventually the Amazon AI Bots may wake up and add it but for now, it’s not included.

It will be interesting to see what this upgrade option will do to the used prices of the Pentax K-1, since the Upgrade optional increases the value potential of the camera. However, the four month upgrade window further complicates things since there is a cut-off point. The lowest used price as of the time of writing is $1600 in “Used – Condition 10” at B&H Photo and “Like New Minus” at KEH Camera. Amazon’s own Warehouse Deals (not 3rd-party sellers there) offers it for $1428 but no warranty (KEH offers 180 days, B&H 90 days). Warehouse Deals offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee only. Mayhaps some Options Trading technology may be needed to figure this one out 🙂

PS: if/when it sells out, the used listing will be automatically yanked by their server, so if you don’t see a camera, it means it sold out.

Imported Nikon D850 w/1-YR Seller Warranty drops to $3200

I just updated the new line-up of the Stock Status Tracker (with the Fuji X-H1 added, the X100F and GH5 removed) and we have a greed price war on the imported Nikon D850 body only front. “Deals All Year” went greedy and skyrocketed their prices from $3240 to $3800, but they just got undercut by another imported, 6ave on eBay is offering the new condition imported grey market with a 1-year seller (not Nikon USA) warranty for $3200 with free shipping, with a maximum of three per customer. The new condition price at authorized Nikon USA dealers is $3300.

PS: if you need a full frame Nikon DSLR now, want the D850 but the waiting is driving you mad, there are some good deals on other refurbished Nikon DSLRs that can keep you going until/unless the D850 becomes available. You won’t lose as much money selling/trading a refurbished DSLR (or you can keep it as a backup).

Canon 6D II Body + BG-E21 Battery Grip for $1899

We already mentioned a couple of days ago that the Canon 6D is down to $999 and with your choice of a useful freebie but that’s not the only camera with useful freebies…

A couple of 3rd-party sellers at Amazon, the most recognizable of which being Cameta Camera are offering the Canon 6D II body only bundled with the BG-E21 Battery Grip for $1900, that’s the body only price without the battery grip at most authorized Canon USA dealers.

Canon 1D X II Body with PIXMA PRO 100 + 50pk SG-201 for $5549 after $350 MIR

If you are not interested in the boatload of free accessories and instead you want a pro printer with the Canon 1D X II, then to B&H Photo we go where they bundle the 1D X II with the PIXMA PRO 100 printer and SG-201 paper kit for $5549 after a $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card).

Canon 1D X II Body with Flashpoint Zoom R2 TTL On-Camera Flash and 64GB Extreme PRO CF and Takama Tripod/Monopod Kit and more for $5500

The Canon 1D X Mark II body only is down $200 since our November 2017 price charts, but that’s not all. It is also getting a handful of useful freebies at Adorama including their house brand Flashpoint Zoom Li-on R2 TTL On-Camera Flash Speedlight (which goes for $179 on its own), along with the following freebies:

+ Takama Flip-Zip Multi-Functional Photo Tripod Monopod Kit
+ 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO Compact Flash
+ new Corel software bundle (four titles including After Shot and PSP)
+ 24/7 Messenger Bag
+ intervalometer and release cable
+ card wallet and cleaning kit
+ one vial with Tears of Nikon [okay, this is NOT included]

Sony a7 with 28-70 OSS and Rode PRO R Mic for $1000

We continue our Full Frame price-checking with the entry-point into the Sony 35mm FF a-series. The a7 body only dropped to $800 with the early February Sony instant savings wave, while the “take pictures with” kit with the 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS dropped to $1000.

Fast forward to now, and the a7 with 28-70mm is getting a pretty useful freebie from Adorama, for the same price of $1000 they also include the new condition Rode Microphones VideoMic Pro R Cardioid Condenser Microphone with Rycote Lyre Shock Mount.

The mic on its own goes for $230, eg B&H Photo and Amazon itself, so that’s a pretty good value!

Sony a7r II body with One Useful Freebie (Five Options)

The Sony Instant Savings of early February gave us plenty of Sony lens discounts and also Sony camera discounts but that’s not all. Some of the discounted cameras are also getting freebies now.

One such discounted camera was the Sony a7r II which is now down to $2400. It went for $2900 during our November 2017 Price charts. A $500 price drop, part of it of course because of the new $3200 a7r III. Sony has been staircasing the prices of the RX-series (they still haven’t discontinued any of those RAWsumers), so it makes sense they are doing this with their a-series as well.

Okay, too much mumbling, the point of this post is this, the a7r II body only goes for $2400 with free shipping and a variety of freebie options as follows:

+ at B&H Photo with 4TB WD My Passport USB 3.0 Secure Portable Hard Drive

+ at B&H Photo with Adobe Photographer Plan Creative Cloud 12-Month Subscription Kit

+ at Adorama with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 (stand alone version; not cloudy edition)

+ at Adorama with Tascam DR-10SG Camera-Mountable Audio Recorder with Shotgun Microphone

+ at Adorama with various free accessories (32GB Extreme PRO, extra battery, etc) along with the new Corel software bundle (four on-topic software titles)

Refurbished Nikon D610 body w/90D W for $1040

As you can tell by today’s posts so far, the first round of price-checking for the Price Charts is the 35mm Full Frame Cameras (iLC or Fixed Lens). The Nikon D610 body only goes for $1500 at authorized Nikon USA dealers, but if you are willing to the manufacturer refurbished, you can pay just over 2/3rds of that, going for $1040 with free shipping at Adorama with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.

Refurbished Nikon D810 Body w/90D W for $1900

If you are going to get the Nikon D810, since it is no longer the latest model [that’s the elusive Nikon D850 – see Stock Status Tracker], you might as well go the way of the refurbished and save a significant amount of money.

The new condition Nikon D810 body only goes for $2800 at authorized dealers, but if you go the manufacturer refurbished route, you can get it for $1900 with free shipping at Adorama with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. That’s $900 less!

PS: “90D” is short for 90 days, “W” is short for Warranty. I am trying to keep blog-post titles one line with the desktop/laptop view. If they go for more than one line, they’d better fill up the second line, otherwise they are eating up space.

Nikon D810A gone from B&H and Adorama but still available

Another disappearing act! The Nikon D810A is no longer available for purchase from B&H Photo and Adorama, but if you still want to get it in new condition from an authorized dealer Amazon itself has it for its normal price of $3800 with a maximum of three per customer. It is in the all-encompassing “temporarily out of stock” shipping estimate though.

Nikon D5 Anniversary gone from B&H, but still available elsewhere

The time is right in the year for a brand new Price Charts series to begin! I have began doing the spreadsheet work and price-checking! This will continue for this week (other things equal) and you may see an increase in deals/posts featuring the cameras that are tracked in the Price Charts as the price-checks surface different kinds of deals directly or indirectly.

If you want to re-familiarize yourself with the Price Charts series, this link shows all previous editions (going back to December 2014).

The first thing that surfaced is the Nikon D5 Anniversary edition is starting to run out. The camera is marked Discontinued and unorderable at B&H Photo but it remains in-stock at Adorama for the five of you that may interested in it 🙂 Amazon itself still has it as “not yet released” but it’s still available for $8000 by Adorama and Unique Photo thru Amazon. Paying for this with an Amazon Prime VISA or Prime Store Card gets you a 5% statement credit, which in this case it’s a pretty nice $400 amount!

Prime Credit Cards Only: Buy Pentax K-1 Body for $1900, Get $380 Statement Credit

The Pentax K-1 body goes for $1900 with a FREE Pentax D-BG6 Battery Grip at B&H Photo and Adorama.

It also goes for $1900 at Amazon by Amazon itself but Amazon does not include the free Battery Grip. HOWEVER, if you are a Prime member, and you pay for this purchase sold and shipped by Amazon, paid with either Prime credit card, you will receive $380 back as a statement credit! I don’t want to repeat the details of this promotion in every post, read the introductory post here.

The battery grip costs $220 on its own, so the statement credit offer handily defeats the free battery grip.

Here’s how the Amazon product page looks when this promotion is alive and kicking:

This is a limited time offer! You can find details and all the eligible products through the Prime 20% Statement Credit offer page.
