But if you prefer them in officially blessed manufacturer refurbished condition with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty, Adorama is offering them for $2050.

The Nikon D7200 body only, in new condition, at authorized dealers, it goes for $1000 with some free accessories, such as Adorama and various at Amazon.

Nikon D850 Body gets a September 7 release estimate

Keep in mind, release estimates of new camera gear can sometimes be finicky and can obviously change as time goes by. So with that disclaimer out of the way…

… we have began a full update of the Stock Status Tracker and as of this update…

… the Amazon listing for the Nikon D850 body only shows a September 7 in 2017 release estimate for the camera.

To make sure I’m not hallucinating, here’s a screenshot 🙂

According to Amazon’s Best Seller charts, this is the #1 seller among New Release digital cameras. Keep in mind, the Amazon best seller lists are only as good as the product categories different products are put in. If someone fat-fingers a coffee machine under cameras, it will show in the best sellers 🙂

Nikon D3300 with 18-55 DX VR II and Extras for $447 [CORRECTED]

CORRECTION: this is the D3300, not the D3400 as the original post said. All apologies for the confusion! I am confusion reborn!

If you are looking for a “take pictures with” entry-point in the Nikon DSLR system and like some extra accessories too, Adorama has the new condition Nikon D3300 with 18-55mm DX VR II on sale for $447 in the red color scheme (DSLR red only, not the lens) or the more conventional black color scheme for $447 with free shipping.

It is temporarily on back-order, but you can order it and lock up the $447 price.

The free accessories included by Adorama during this promotion are:

  • Corel software bundle (five titles, including two photo and one video)
  • Lowepro Format 160 camera bag
  • 52mm Pro Optic filter kit (three filters and case)
  • 16GB Lexar SD C10 card

Starts 6pm ET: Nikon D850 Live Panel II

Refurbished Nikon D810 body for $2199

The new Nikon D850 is coming later this year for $3300 [see Stock Tracker for options]. The existing Nikon D810 goes for $2800 in new condition at authorize dealers…

… but if you prefer to get it refurbished from an A-list dealer, you can get it refurbished at B&H Photo for $2199 with free shipping with a 90-day warranty (I think the warranty is from B&H, not Nikon).

Strategically, it’s not a bad idea, if you are going for the previous generation model, to get it refurbished or used, when the price difference between the new condition models is closer. Of course this is all relative, and one’s individual preferences and priorities vary, so there’s no one size fits all type of answer.

LIVE NOW: Nikon D850 Live Stream at B&H

If you are curious about the Nikon D850, starting at 1pm ET today (Monday 8/28/17), B&H Photo will have a Nikon D850 Live Stream with a panel discussing the camera live on video. A second separate live stream is planned for Tuesday at 6pm ET with a panel of six, including Joe McNally. The video-streaming is using Livestream.

NOTE: the video stream may require Adobe Flash. The D850 is available for pre-ordering ~ check Stock Tracker for options.

Save the Dates: Nikon D850 Learnings: B&H planning two LIVE Streaming panels on Mon and Tue

The Nikon D850 is now a real product, available for pre-order for $3300, and it has already been added to the Stock Status Tracker.

If you want to learn more about it, and ask specific questions that you want answered from people in the know, B&H is planning not one but TWO LIVE PANEL Discussions on this very camera!

On Monday 8/28/17 at 1pm Eastern (10am Pacific), a panel of four, including two Nikon Ambassadors will be talking about the camera.

On Tuesday 8/29/17 at 6pm Eastern (3pm pacific), a panel of six, including the one and only Joe McNally, will be having a hands-on with the D850 live, with both stills and video experts in the panel.

If you have any questions you want the panel to answer or want to follow the online discussion about it, check the #BHPhotoLive Twitter hashtag. Tweeting a question also enters you into a drawing to win a Nikon D850!

Streaming will happen using LiveStream technology (not YouTube), so if you have a mobile device that can’t handle Livestream, make sure you are near a device that can handle it.

Pre-order new Nikon D850 Body Only FF DSLR

Wallets open wide. Open ALL the frames in your wallet. The Nikon full frame DSLR that was promised is now a real product. The Nikon D850 body only is officially announced and pre-orders are accepted for $3300 at authorized dealers including B&H Photo and Adorama and Amazon itself.

With this new addition, the DSLRs take an 8-7 lead versus Mirrorless cameras among the New Cameras of 2017. But the score is far from settled, IFA is just around the corner. There is no Photokina this year since it is an odd-numbered year [and a very odd year to boot], so announcements may be spread out more evenly among the remaining Trade Shows.

In a surprisingly fast move (for this blog these days), the Nikon D850 has also just been added to the Stock Status Tracker. This is the fastest I’ve ever added a camera to the tracker 🙂

Open-box Nikon D7500 Body for $1120

The Nikon D7500 body only goes for $1250 in new condition at authorized dealers, but if you prefer open-box condition from reputable dealers, you can get it for $1120 with free shipping as open-box at B&H Photo… For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker

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

The newly launched 6% to 8% eBay Bucks promotion puts in new light this offer at the eBay Deals. The Beach Camera eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D3400 Two-Lens DX Kit for $400 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.

Only the black color scheme is available. It includes the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G DX VR lens and the 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR. With 8% eBay Bucks, you’d be getting $32 in eBay Bucks (if you are eligible and you manually activate the promotion).

PS: non-VR is not an official Nikon designation but it serves as a practical disambiguation, since the lack of mentioning VR in a lens name may be a typo/error. Saying non-VR clarifies to the reader that this is not a VR lens. Or maybe I’m overthinking things 🙂

Refurbished Nikon D7200 Body Only for $680

More eBay Deals action, the BuyDig eBay store is offering the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7200 body only for $680 with free shipping and a 90-day Nikon USA warranty with a limit of up to five units per customer.

The new condition D7200 body only goes for $1000 at authorized dealers, which are allowed to include free accessories, such as Amazon and Adorama.

Since the D7500 is the latest model, currently going for $1250 in new condition in body only [see Stock Status Tracker], it’s probably a good idea to go refurbished if you are buying the previous generation (almost half the price of D7500), instead of getting a new D7200 that’s only $250 away from the D7500. But of course it’s your decision 🙂

But if you are willing to go the open-box route from a reputable dealer, B&H Photo offers the Nikon D7500 body only in Open-Box Condition with the full manufacturer warranty for $1120 with free expedited shipping. B&H is a well-known camera and photo retailer, so it’s as lower risk purchase.

Speaking of Nikon, their bitter rival’s latest camera, the Canon 6D Mark II is out of stock at most of the retailers we track, except for B&H Photo where it remains in-stock for its starting price of $2000.

This ships directly from OC Camera and it is not Prime eligible.

UPDATE: a placeholder page has been created for the camera at B&H Photo. More details as they get revealed by Nikon…

Nikon released a “hype video” for the D850, YouTube-embedded below:

As you can see in the Full Frame Cameras Price Chart, Nikon full frame DSLRs range from $1500 to $8000. The D810 that will be replaced by the D850 goes for $2800, while the Df is at $2750. The D810A (astro) goes for $3800.

So, strategically this means, if you are willing to pony up money for a brand new Df or D810, you night as well wait and see what the D850 will offer and how much will it cost.

On the other hand, if you need a 35mm full frame DSLR at the Df/D810 level right now and don’t want to wait for an anniversary pig in an anniversary poke, going the manufacturer refurbished route for the Df and the D810 seems like a reasonable financial and cameraholic decision versus buying them in new condition at full price.

That’s because the manufacturer refurbished prices are decidedly lower than the new condition:

+ manufacturer refurbished Nikon Df with 50mm f1.8G Special for $1795 at Adorama

+ manufacturer refurbished Nikon D810 body only for $1997 at Adorama
