Imported Nikon D850 Body “drops” to $3400

I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and there is a “discount” on the limited availability premium of the Nikon D850. The camera’s official price is $3300 at authorized dealers, but it went over $3500 by importers who had it in-stock. Now the “limited availability premium” is shrinking, it’s “only” +$100, you can get it in imported grey-market condition with a 1-year seller warranty (not Nikon USA) by eBay seller Deals All Year (New Jersey) for $3400 with free shipping.

Personally I would wait for the Nikon USA authorized dealers, but I am not the Master of the Universe (I am barely the master of my thoughts), I can’t decide for everybody else 🙂

Imported Nikon D850 Body w/1-YR Seller W for $3775

If you really don’t want to wait for the Nikon D850 to come in-stock from authorized Nikon USA dealers for $3300 [check the Stock Status Tracker for that], and you are willing to pay a limited availability premium, and get a 1-year seller warranty (instead of a Nikon USA warranty), then…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “Deals All Year” is offering the new condition Nikon D850 body only for $3775 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the seller, not Nikon USA. Limit one per buyer.

They sold 54 of these, so temptation won over 54 people so far. Personally I wouldn’t buy it, but I’m not the master of the universe, other people have different preferences and priorities 🙂

Open-Box Panasonic GH5 for $1600, Imported for $1500, New with V-Log for $2000

The Panasonic GH5 body only has been steadily in-stock for $2000 at authorized Panasonic dealers (thank you MAP!) in new condition, so it is also being removed from the Stock Status Tracker [update in progress], so in a new blog tradition, it too is getting a “parting shot” post. The current offers:

+ new condition grey-market with 1-Year Seller warranty from 6ave on eBAY for $1500

+ open-box from authorized dealer Samy’s Camera for $1600

+ new condition at authorized dealers for $2000 with FREE V-Log at Adorama and B&H Photo
+ optionally triple the warranty by filing with Panasonic

Canon 7D II w/18-135 & Wifi & Pixma PRO 100 & Paper for $1599 after $350 MIR (prepaid AMEX GC)

The Canon 7D Mark II with the 18-135mm lens and the Wifi adapter kit goes for $1950 at authorized Canon USA dealers. Without the Wifi adapter kit, you can get it for $1850 at Adorama in new condition and with a free extra battery.

If you are a fan of imported grey-market cameras, you can get the 7D II with 18-135 in new condition (without the Wifi adapter) for $1409 with free shipping by 6ave on eBAY which includes a 1-year warranty provided by 6ave (not Canon USA).

If you wanna split the difference in terms of price between the two, and yet get more gear, then check out this Adorama 7D Mark II bundle. You pay $1949 at checkout, receive the order, make sure all is well, file the mail-in rebates per instructions and deadlines, and a few weeks later you’ll receive a $350 prepaid AMEX gift card by mail if all is well. This makes it a $1599 after $350 MIR promotion. For that, you receive:

  • Canon 7D II with 18-135mm IS USM lens
  • Canon Pixma PRO 100 printer
  • its sidekick, the SG-201 50pk 13×19″ photo paper
  • the W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter Kit is included as part of the 7D II w/18-135 kit

PS: if you are interested in the 7D II body only instead, there’s a parallel offer for it for $1199 after $350 MIR.

Imported Canon 5D Mark IV body with 1-YR Seller W for $2550

For $2849, you can get a loaded Canon 5D Mark IV bundle after mail-in rebate, but if you don’t want to deal with mail-in rebates, and don’t need/want the printer and the battery grip, AND you are comfortable with imported cameras…

… to the eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “6ave” (98.9%) is offering it in new condition imported-grey market with a 1-year seller warranty (not Canon USA warranty) for $2550 with free shipping.

So it’s a game of trade offs:
+ mail-in rebate and prepaid gift card
+ USA warranty VS seller warranty
+ extra Printer and Battery Grip
+ A-list seller vs eBay seller
+ higher price vs lower price
+ sell/trade extras or no wish to do that

PS: we have a relatively new tag, Full Frame Deals that marks all the cameras that have a 35mm full frame sensor, whether they are DSLRs, mirrorless, fixed lens, or floating lens cube.

PS2: “W” is short for Warranty. With this blog template, I am trying to keep blog-post-titles one line long. If it goes for more than one line, it better make use of most of the second line, otherwise it’s wasted space. Although some could argue this whole blog is wasted space 😉

GoPRO HERO6 with $50 Gift Card for $450

Another one of the eBay Black Friday Ad specials [see 2017 BF Ads Digest] has gone live at the eBay Deals, it is the new condition GoPRO HERO 6 with a $50 eBay Gift Card (does not specify whether this is digital or plastic by mail) and a 16GB microSD card offered for $450 with free shipping by the 6ave eBay Store. Limit three per customer.

There is no mention of warranty on the listing, so assume there is none to be on the safe side. This is the same seller that is apparently offering the $1500 Panasonic GH5.

UPDATE: speaking of eBay and Black Friday, another one of their doorbusters is live, the new condition Google Home offered for $79 with free shipping by Yapper Wireless, with up to three units per customer at the sale price. The listing says it comes with a 1-year warranty.

UPDATE #2: another eBay doorbuster, new condition Apple AirPods for $150 with free S&H.

Imported Panasonic GH5 body w/1-YR seller warranty for $1500

One of the cameras teased in the eBay BF Ads [see BF Ads Digest mega-post] is the Panasonic GH5 body only for $1500, and I think I’ve found that offer. As expected, it is imported/grey-market, offered in new condition by 6ave’s eBay store with a limit of up to three per buyer. It comes with a 1-year seller warranty.

This is a $50 drop since the last time I updated the Stock Status Tracker where the same seller offered it for $1550. The new condition price at authorized dealers remains $2000 (thank you MAP pricing).

BUT another option emerged now, KEH Camera has limited supplies in USED “LN-” (Like New Minus) condition for $1829 plus shipping. And if you buy before 12/31/17, you get a 365-warranty from KEH Camera instead of the usual 180-day. Definitely better to have a KEH warranty than an eBay seller warranty 🙂

eBay reveals Cameras in their BF Ad – most likely imported/grey-market

eBay has revealed their eight page Black Friday ad and it has about half a dozen digital cameras in it. The eBay ad however does not specify the seller of the camera, the warranty situation, or the condition of the product, so that’s a mystery until the deal goes live. Judging by the prices, it looks like most of them are probably going to be imported/grey-market. About half of them are 35mm full frame cameras.

We integrated eBay’s offers in the Black Friday 2017 Ads Digest. You can find all the eBay additions by using your browser’s search function looking for “eBay” (not case sensitive).

I will price-check and dig around on eBay to see if these are already live.

Imported Panasonic 100-400 f4-6.3 OIS for $1370 [m43]

To the eBay Deals we go, where the QuickNDone eBay store (99.9%) is offering the new condition imported grey-market Panasonic Leica DG 100-400mm F/4-6.3 O.I.S micro four thirds lens for $1370 with free shipping until 11/6/17 or earlier if sold out. Limit two per customer.

There is no mention of warranty in the eBay listing except when you hit the Warranty tab at the very bottom, it says limited 1-year (it may have been a leftover or default setting in the form). In the chance they do offer a warranty, it would be a seller-warranty, since they are not Panasonic USA retailers. Assume there is no warranty to be on the safe side.

PS: if interested in this, don’t forget to first activate the 8% eBay Bucks if you have invited by the eBay email bots to participate.

Imported Canon 6D body only w/1-YR seller warranty for $1000

The Canon 6D body only (first generation) goes for $1400 at authorized dealers (eg Adorama or Amazon itself). Or it goes for $1200 in manufacturer refurbished condition with a 1-year warranty at the Canon Outlet store

… but if you prefer to save some more, off to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller 6ave (98.9%, New Jersey) is offering it for $1000 with free shipping in imported grey-market condition with a 1-year seller warranty. Limit up to three units per customer…

With the newest second generation model, the Canon 6D II body going for $2000 in new condition at authorized dealers, you’d be paying half for the previous generation.

Imported Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC USD for $690 [C/N]

The new condition Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens bundled with some free accessories goes for $1100 at authorized dealers such as Adorama. But if you want to save a lot and you are comfortable with imported grey-market, then…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “QuickNDone” (99.9%) is offering the lens in new condition imported grey-market for $690 with free shipping in the Canon mount or the Nikon mount.

Limit five per mount per customer. Between them they sold over 800 units.

Warranty-wise, if you are buying in Canada, you get a 6-year Tamron Canada warranty. If you are buying elsewhere, you get the 1-year Tamron International warranty. So it’s a lot shorter than the Tamron USA warranty. That’s one of the reasons why the price is lower. They are a Canadian seller but the eBay listing says they ship from various locations in the USA.

Imported Fuji X100F Black for $1246 w/1-YR Seller Warranty

The Fuji X100, in new condition at authorized dealers, holds steady at $1300 as you can see at the just-updated Stock Status Tracker. Some mild discounting can be had if you are comfortable with these options:

+ Amazon Warehouse Deals USED condition prices start at $1180 for the black color scheme

+ Imported Grey Market X100 Black for $1246~ with free shipping by 6ave with a 1-year seller warranty [not Fuji USA warranty]

Imported Nikon D7500 Body Only drops to $1097

The updating of the Stock Status Tracker has new developments on the Nikon D7500 APS-C DSLR front as well:

+ the imported grey-market price dropped to $1097 with free shipping by 6ave on eBay (IMPORTED)

+ Freebies: Corel software bundle, Lowepro 140 bag, 16GB Sandisk Ultra SD, memory card wallet, USB stick card reader, cleaning kit

Imported Canon 6D II Body Only for $1715+

An update of the Stock Status Tracker is in-progress, and we have new lower prices for imported grey-market Canon 6D II Body Only kits since the last time we checked. The new condition authorized dealer price is $2000, but if you are comfortable with imported with a 1-year seller warranty:

+ 6ave on eBay (IMP) for $1715 with free shipping

+ Deals All Year on eBay (IMP) for $1730 with free shipping

Imported Panasonic GH5 Body with 1-YR Seller Warranty for $1550

The new condition Panasonic GH5 body only continues steady for $2000 at authorized Panasonic USA dealers [towards the middle of the Stock Status Tracker], but the prices of the imported grey-market models are now showing more signs of discounting!

Among the latest eBay Deals, ebay seller “6ave” (99%, New Jersey) is offering new condition imported grey-market Panasonic GH5 body only kits for $1550 with free shipping with a 1-year seller warranty (not Panasonic USA warranty). Limit three per customer.

This is the lowest price I recall seeing. The previous low price I saw was in the $1600s.

Imported Sony a7R II Body with 1-YR Seller Warranty for $2140

The Sony a7R II body only goes for $2500 at authorized dealers which are bundling it with useful freebies (eg, Lightroom 6 or 4TB Western Digital external HDD). But if you prefer a lower price instead…

… to the eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “Department Store NYC” (99.2%, New York) is offering the Sony a7R II body in imported grey-market new condition with a 1-year seller warranty (not Sony USA) for $2140 with free shipping. Limit three per customer. Over 1300 units have been sold from this listing according to the eBay stats.

Everything expiring! As of a late 9/21/17 PM re-check, the price increased up to $1730…

Imported Tamron 24-70 f2.8 Di VC USD for $690 [C/N]

The first generation new condition Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD goes for $1100 at authorized dealers which can include some free accessories such as Adorama.

But if you are a more adventurous shopper, then to the eBay Deals we go, where eBay seller “QuickNDone” (99.9%) is offering the lens in new condition for $690 with free shipping in the Nikon system. Per the listing, the sale ends 9/20/17.

UPDATE: they also offer this in the Canon EF system for the same price.

Further down the product listing, under “Warranty” it says that you get either a 1-Year Tamron International warranty or a 6-Year Tamron Canada warranty, depending on location. They also offer a 30-day return policy.

This is a higher risk than buying in new condition from authorized Tamron USA dealers, that’s one of the reasons for the lower price. I believe “QuickNDone” is a Canadian seller.

Imported Fuji X-T2 body only w/seller warranty for $1450

And now we continue refreshing the Stock Status Tracker with some Fuji X-T2 body only action!

If you are comfortable with imported cameras with a warranty provided by the seller (not Fuji USA), you can get the new condition Fuji X-T2 in imported grey-market condition for $1450 by Deals All Year on eBay (99.8%, New Jersey).

On the other hand, if you prefer used cameras, you can get it in “Used – Excellent” condition for $1349 plus shipping (starts at $14, varies by zipcode) from Adorama which offers a 90-day warranty of their own and a 30-day return policy.

Meanwhile Cardinal Photo is offering it in “Used – Like New” condition for $1399 through Amazon Warehouse Deals. Not Prime eligible. The description says this is the X-T2 with 18-55 kit, with the 18-55 removed (and presumably sold separately).

Some sellers do this, by selling them separately, they can get a better price than selling the kit as is. This is because of the built-in discount of the official “with lens” kits. As long as sellers are upfront about it and are clear in the descriptions, giving people more options and more alternatives is good.

Imported Sony a6300 w/16-50mm for $830

The Sony a6300 with 16-50mm goes for $1000 in new condition at authorized Sony USA dealers who are bundling it with various free accessories such as Adorama and B&H Photo.

But if you are comfortable with new condition imported grey-market cameras with a 1-year seller warranty (instead of a Sony USA warranty), then off to the eBay Deals we go, where you can get the camera as mentioned in this paragraph for $830 with free shipping by 6ave’s eBay store (New Jersey, 98.9%).

For a refresher on mirrorless prices, check the July 2017 edition of the Mirrorless Price Charts.

PS: if you are eligible for this offer, don’t forget to first activate the 8% eBay Bucks promotion. This would be a serious rewards amount, that’s around $66 to spend in the future on eBay (through the eBay Bucks rewards program).

Imported Panasonic GX850 Body Only WITHOUT Warranty for $390

The new Panasonic GX850 with the 12-35mm goes for $550 in new condition at authorized Panasonic dealers which can include some free accessories with it such as Adorama (free Corel software, holster bag, 16GB card, card wallet, etc).

But if you only want the GX850 body-only, and you are comfortable buying international (imported, grey market) camera body WITHOUT any warranty, the Panasonic GX850 body only is available for $390~ with free shipping and no warranty from 6ave through Amazon. This ships directly from 6ave, but if you are a Prime member, you receive Prime-like shipping speed for free. It may not be as fast as Amazon since 6ave is on the East Coast, they don’t have warehouses everywhere like Amazon does.

As usual in situations like this, it is up to you to decide how much risk you are willing to take.

Imported Sony a6000 with 16-50mm for $560

Sony has many options now-a-days in the E-mount, both APS-C and full frame cameras, just look at all the Sonys in the Mirrorless Price Chart. If of all those options you are settled on the Sony a6000 with 16-50mm, it currently goes for $650 at authorized Sony USA dealers, which are allowed to add a handful of free accessories such as Adorama.

But if you are comfortable with imported grey-market cameras, then to the eBay Deals we go, where RedTag Camera is offering this kit as imported grey-market for $560 with free shipping. There is no mention of warranty in the listing, so assume there is no warranty included.

Needless to say this is a higher risk purchase, so if you don’t feel comfortable without any warranty, do not buy!

But if you want to pay less, and you are comfortable with refurbished, you can get it in refurbished condition with a 90-day warranty for $1399 at B&H Photo.

On the other hand, if you are comfortable with imported/grey-market cameras, then to the eBay Deals we boldly go (where a CBS All Access subscription is not necessary) where eBay seller “6ave” (99.1%, New Jersey) is offering the new condition imported/grey-market Nikon D750 body only for $1290 with free shipping.

So it’s up to you and your risk matrix and Keanu Reeves 😉

On the other hand, if you prefer a Nikon D5600 kit purchased from authorized dealers, and want a loaded “take pictures with” kit, the Nikon D5600 two-lens kit (18-55 DX VR, 70-300 DX non-VR) goes for $900 with a handful of free accessories at Adorama (Corel software bundle, Lowepro bag, 16GB Lexar SD, Bower 58mm IV filter, cleaning kit).
