At authorized Sony USA dealers this goes for $2500 such as Adorama (free Shure or Audio Technica mic) or B&H Photo (2% rewards = $50) or Amazonia.

Canon 6D body only for $1100 (no mention of warranty)

Back to the eBay Deals we go where RedTag Camera (99.9%) is offering the new condition Canon 6D body only for $1100 with free shipping. Limit five per buyer. Over 300 units sold from this listing so far. There is no mention of warranty on the eBay listing.

This is what some call a “broken kit”, not broken physically but virtually:

“The Canon 6D camera Body for sale is 100% Brand New, Never Used. Lens has been removed from Kit box and sold on a separate auction.”

If you don’t feel comfortable with the above, the 6D body only goes for $1400 with Canon USA warranty and various extra accessories at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon itself.

If you are looking for something in-between, Adorama has an open-box Canon 6D for $1280 but no freebies and no promotional rewards. Their open box includes the one year Canon USA warranty.

Imported Canon 1D X for $4000

If you are comfortable getting flagship cameras as imported grey-marked, among the latest eBay Deals, seller GetItDigital (99.6%) is offering the new condition imported grey market Canon 1D X body only for $4000 with free shipping and $80 eBay Bucks (if you are a member of ebay’s free rewards program). Limit 5 per customer. Over 230 units sold from this listing. Again, note this is imported, the one year warranty is provided by the seller GetItDigital, not Canon USA!

At authorized Canon dealers, this goes for $5300 but you get some free accessories. For example at Adorama you get a free 128GB CompactFlash and two extra batteries, while at B&H Photo you get a different set of freebies. You also get 2% promotional rewards (=$106~).

If you don’t hate mail-in rebates, Adorama has the usual 1D X Pixma Pro 100 bundle with the usual extras for $5300 after $250 MIR (prepaid AMEX gift card, not check).

Amazon itself is stingy on the freebies, but if you qualify for their Store Credit Card (not the Chase VISA), you can get a 12-month 0% APR financing (you have to make equal installment payments and pay in full by the end of the 12 months in order to avoid interest. They have long Terms and Conditions.

So the trade-offs is $4000 without Canon USA warranty vs $5300 with Canon USA warranty and extra accessories or financing.

We blog, you decide (and deride if you decide to do so) 🙂

The 5DMk3 w/24-105 goes for $3100 at authorized Canon dealers, but they offer a variety of free accessories and promotional rewards, such as B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazonia.

As usual, the trade-off of $500 vs USA warranty and free accessories is up to each individual to make based on their own preferences and circumstances and such.

If you are comfortable with imported (= grey market = no manufacturer warranty) cameras, the latest eBay Deals include the new condition no-manufacturer-warranty Nikon D7100 body only for $700 with free shipping with a limit of five per buyer. The seller is “photovideo4less” (99.7%). This camera goes for $1000 at authorized Nikon dealers (eg Amazon). It is up to you to decide the trade-offs in such matters.

Speaking of eBay, another one of the above-the-fold offers is the new condition 15.6″ Lenovo Thinkpad E540 laptop offered by Adorama’s eBay store for $400 (Intel i3-4000M, 4GB RAM, 500GB/7200rpm, 1366 x 768, HD 4600, Windows 7 Pro, limit 5).

More eBay Deals action, if you are comfortable with imported (non-USA warranty) double-figure lenses, the new condition Canon 50mm f1.8 II is offered for $85 with free shipping by Red Tag Camera on eBay (99.9%) with a limit of five per buyer. Over 1000 of these primes got sold through this listing. The simplicity of a prime lens and the low price perhaps may make this a low/lower risk import/grey-market purchase.

Speaking of eBay, Adorama’s eBay store is offering the new condition 22-inch Dell E2215HV computer monitor for $100 with free shipping with a limit of five per buyer.

Canon 50mm f1.8 II (imported or likewise) for $93

The latest action in the eBay Deals includes the new condition but very likely not-USA-warranty Canon 50mm f1.8 II lens offered for $93 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer, by eBay seller RedTagCamera (99.9%). There is no mention of warranty in the listing and the seller is not an authorized Canon dealer (as far as I can tell), so assume this is imported or something similar.

Since this is a low priced simple prime lens, for some people, this may be a reasonable risk… At authorized Canon dealers, this goes for $105 after a $20 mail-in rebate (eg Adorama, B&H Photo).

Canon 50mm f1.8 II (imported/grey) for $98

Included in the camera sub-section of the eBay Deals is the new condition Canon 50mm f1.8 II lens offered for $98 with free shipping by eBay seller RedTag Camera (99.9%). There is no mention of a warranty on the product page and they are not an authorized Canon dealer, so this is likely an imported / grey-market model. As such, it is not eligible for the Canon mail-in rebates. This is a simple prime lens in double figures, so, for some, this may not be an unreasonable risk to take. The blessed by Canon USA model goes for $105 after a $20 mail-in rebate at authorized dealers (eg B&H Photo, Adorama). Not sure how many people would want to go through the hassle of a mail-in rebate for $20, unless they are buying other Canon DSLRs and lenses that are also part of the mail-in rebate promotion. So if you are interested in this lens, the trade-off: imported vs mail-in rebate. We blog, you decide!

Nikon D3200 body only (Imported) for $265 w/coupon

If you only want a Nikon DSLR body, and you are comfortable buying imported (gray market) models, you can get the new condition imported (grey market) Nikon D3200 body only for $265 with free shipping when you use coupon code Loyalty10 (= $10 off) at Abe’s of Maine.

Another trip to the latest eBay Deals find a high-risk high-reward option. The imported Canon 1D X body only is offered for $4700 with free shipping by eBay seller GetItDigital (99.4%), wiht a limit of five per shopping cart. This camera is imported (grey market), so you don’t get warranty from the manufacturer. The seller, Get It Digital, offers their own equivalent one year warranty. High risk because this is an expensive professional DSLR, high reward because it is around $1300-$2100 less than the blessed by Canon USA model which goes for $6800 ($6000 after mail-in rebate) at Amazon and B&H Photo and Adorama and BuyDig. Over 130 imported 1D Xs got sold so far through this listing. Again, please note this is an imported model without a Canon USA warranty.

(ENDED) Fuji X100T for $1160 (imported)

This limited time offer expired… For future updates, check the Fuji X100T stock status page…

We finally updated the Fuji X100T stock status page and there is an interesting development, the camera is on sale for $1160 with free shipping by DigitalRev.

The normal X100T price is $1300. There is a countdown on the sale at DigitalRev, if my time math is correct, it should expire by 12/1/14 at 11:59pm eastern.

Imported Fuji X100S for $685 (Gray Market)

If you are comfortable buying imported (grey market = no manufacturer USA warranty) digital cameras, the Fuji X100S can be yours for $685 with free shipping at Abe’s of Maine using coupon code LOYALTY15 ($15 off).

Olympus SZ-15 compact-zoom for $80 (probably Imported)

More eBay action, the new condition Olympus SZ-15 compact-zoom is offered for $80 with free shipping, in black or silver, with a limit of five per customer by ebay seller DB Roth (98.9%) with over 1600 cameras sold through this listing.

Imported Canon G1X for $445 (grey market)

If you are comfortable with imported (gray market aka grey market) cameras, Abe’s of Maine is offering the new condition imported Canon G1 X for $445 with free shipping. The Loyalty coupons does not work on this one. The USA model goes for $550 but B&H Photo has a bundle with the WP-DC44 Waterproof Case for the same $550 price. So if you are interested in underwater shooting or don’t mind trading/selling/gifting/bartering the underwater housing, then that’s probably a better net price.

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 😉

Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens for $83 (limit 5; maybe Imported/Grey)

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!
