Nikon D7500 with 18-140mm with Flash, Bag, Converter Lenses, 64GB SD, Filters, PSP X8, Spider, and More Freebies for $1550

As you can see at the just-updated Stock Status Tracker, the official Nikon D7500 with 18-140mm kit goes for $1550 at authorized dealers. You can get it at this price, but with a boatload of free accessories by Buydig on eBay. The freebies are:

The same set of freebies for the same price of $1550 is offered by Beach Camera through Amazon. Buydig and Beach Camera are/have the same parent company. Beach Camera through Amazon ships directly, but if you are a Prime member, you get free Prime-like delivery speed (around two days give or take). This is a lesser known Prime Benefit and the only way to figure it out is to look at the listing in detail.

On the other hand, if you want to buy it from Amazon itself, their in-stock estimate is June 23 (2017), but you don’t get any of the above freebies.

These should not be confused with the Rokinon 20mm T1.9 which is a Tuesday daily deal.

Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Declicked for $264 (Canon, Fuji, Nikon)

The Rokinon 85mm T1.5 lens with declicked aperture and follow focus capable is on sale for $264 in the Canon and Fuji and Nikon systems by Aamzon itself with a limit of up to three units per mount per customer. This is not a lightning deal, so expiration time/date unknown. Check the individual listings for the Nikon version as it is complicated (Amazon’s own is Prime only, but Precision has it for $264 but not Prime eligible).

Speaking of Amazon, they are offering the Star Trek 50th Anniversary TV and Movie Collection [Blu-ray] for $80 with free shipping. Limit one set per customer during the sale.

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 🙂
