Nikon A900 for $347 (NEW) or $279 (Refurb)

Choices, choices! The Nikon Coolpix A900 with its 1/2.3″ BSI CMOS sensor is available in new condition for $347 in either black or silver color by Amazon itself with a limit of three units per color per customer.

On the other hand, if you are comfortable with manufacturer refurbished and the silver color, to the eBay Deals we go where BuyDig’s eBay sto’or is offering them in manufacturer refurbished condition for $279 with free shipping.

Imported Nikon D7200 w/18-140 DX VR w/1yr seller warranty for $900

The Nikon D7200 is no longer the “latest model” in the D7X0 line, the D7500 was announced a few days and it is currently available for pre-order for $1250 as body only – check Stock Status Tracker.

In new condition, it currently goes for $1000 as body only or $1300 with the 18-104mm lens at various authorized dealers, such as Adorama or Amazon or B&H Photo.

However, one school of thought is that once a “newer model” is revealed, it may be a good idea to buy the previous models as refurbished or used or grey-market, to save money on the purchase of a non-latest-model, since you are not riding the Early Adopter Wave.

If you like this approach, one path is refurbished, the D7200 body only is available manufacturer-refurbished with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty at Adorama or $789 with a 90-da7 B&H warranty at B&H Photo.

Another path that will get you more bang for the buck (if you need/want the 18-140mm DX VR lens) is at the eBay Deals du jour where eBay seller 6ave (99.1%, New Jersey) is offering the imported grey-market D7200 with the 18-140mm DX VR lens and a 1-year seller warranty (from 6ave, not Nikon USA) for $900 with free shipping. Limit five per customer.

For the speed-readers, the “1555” in the eBay listing title maybe easily misread as 1855 as in the 18-55 lens. This 1515 is the MPN of this kit, it comes with the 18-140mm lens 🙂 But for whatever reason, the eBay bots or humans picked a YouTube video for the D700 in the middle of the eBay listing instead of the D7200 🙂

PS: I am not sure how a one-paragraph post turned into this 🙂

Refurbished Nikon D3400 w/18-55 and 70-300mm DX non-VR for $440

There are many ways to get into the Nikon DSLR system these days, especially if you consider refurbished kits, which brings us to the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D3400 bundled with the 18-55 DX VR and the 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR lenses, with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty, all together going for $440 with free shipping at Adorama.

This bundle goes for $600 in new condition with some free accessories included by Amazon and Adorama.

Pre-order new Nikon D7500 for $1250

Nikon has a new APS-C dSLR in the popular D7XX series, the new D7500 is now available for pre-order for $1250 as body only or $1750 with the 18-140mm DX VR lens at Amazon by Amazon itself. No shipping estimate yet.

This was added to the Cameras of 2017 Tracking page where the DSLRs have now scored an equalizer goal, making it DSLRs vs Mirrorless 5-5.

Nikon L340 superzoom (28x) for $150

Zoom-zoom! The new condition black color scheme of the Nikon Coolpix L340 superzoom (28x optical zoom, four AA batteries) is currently on sale for $150 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of up to three of these zoomies per customer. It averages 4.1 out of 5 based on 800+ customer reviews, has 500+ answered questions, and per the listing there, it is currently the #1 Best Selling P&S cameras.

PS: keep in mind, Amazon’s website is now huge, there’s rarely any product category that is completely and correctly categorized, so some cameras may be missing from “top seller” consideration, while other non-camera items may also be included. It’s more useful nowadays as a pecking order comparison of the cameras that are ranked. That’s one of the reasons why I stopped doing the “best selling charts” posts because they were diluted enough so that they didn’t deserve that close of an analysis/scrutiny.

Refurbished Nikon D3400 w/18-55 DX VR and 70-300 f4.5-6.3 DX non-VR for $400

The sale is back on again, to the Trending eBay deals we go, where the Buydig eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D3400 two lens kit with the 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G DX VR and the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED DX (not VR) lenses, along with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty for $400 with free shipping. Limit up to five bundles per customer. This is only available in the black color scheme.

Imported Nikon D750 body with 1-year seller warranty for $1300

The Nikon D750 goes for $1900 in new condition at authorized Nikon USA dealers which offer various free accessories, eg B&H Photo or Adorama. Or you can go manufacturer refurbished with Nikon USA’s 90-day blessings (warranty) for $1500, eg Adorama.

But if you are a higher risk shopper, to the eBay deals we venture where the new condition imported grey market Nikon D750 body only is offered for $1300 with free shipping and a 1-year warranty from the seller “6ave” (99.1%, New Jersey). Limit five per buyer. Nearly 350 units have been sold so far from this listing.

There is no warranty offered in the listing, so this is a higher risk than buying with a 1-year seller warranty, which in itself is a higher risk than a 1-year manufacturer warranty, and so forth. 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).

Cancellation: the Nikon DL cameras are dead

Nikon has cancelled their DL line of cameras. If you placed pre-orders with deposits and such, make sure you get a refund. Nikon has been self-sabotaging with both their “Angry Inch” mirrorless system and the DL line of cameras, and the Cylons came back for them. Might as well had stayed out of it and saved all the money they spent/wasted on half-hearted attempts at competing just so they can say “we have one too”. /rant 🙂

Nikon D5300 with 18-55 DX VR and 70-300 DX non-VR and Extras for $597

Nikon has many APS-C DSLRs out in the market, and if you are comfortable with manufacturer-refurbished, the options increase so much so that a spreadsheet may be necessary to sort them out. One of these options is a new condition two-lens kit based on the Nikon D5300 for $597. You get the black Nikon D5300 DSLR with the 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G DX VR lens (not the newer VR II as far as I can tell), along with the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED DX (not VR) lens.

Internets Price-Match Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom (40x, AA) Black Friday Ad for under $260 with free accessories

I am now continuing with the price-checking of the glossy-ad Black Friday Ads, and one more “glossy ad” has been “defeated” by the internets. The Nikon Coolpix B500 superzoom (40x optical, four AA) is advertised for $260 in the BF ads, but Adorama is not only offering it for just under $260, it is also bundled with lots of free accessories: Corel software bundle, Bag, SD, AA charger/batteries, etc. The same price but without those freebies is available at B&H Photo and Amazon itself
