The Nikon D810 body only currently goes for $2800 in new condition at authorized Nikon USA dealers, along with various free accessories. But if you want to optimize for a lower price, and you are comfortable with imported grey-market camera gear, you can get it for $2000 with a free 1-year warranty from the seller GetItDigital on eBay (99.7%). Limit ONE per buyer. TL/DR: This does NOT have a Nikon USA warranty.
More eBay Deals action, BuyDig’s eBay store is offering the new condition Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Zoom Lens (Contemporary) lens in the Canon and Nikon mounts, for $700 with free shipping, with a limit of five per customer.

UPDATE (11/29/15 PM): the Nikon version now goes for $700 after $120 mail-in rebates at Amazon by Amazon itself. Thanks to one of our readers, EK, for the alert in the comments!
NOTE: if you only see the $70 mail-in rebate, refresh the page and it will show both for a $120 MIR total. This is probably an issue with Amazon’s servers sync or caching or something like that. It should look like this (annotated screenshot below):
This is no longer available:
The action continues at the eBay Deals where Buydig’s eBay store is offering the new condition Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 Di VC USD Zoom Lens (A011) for $820 with free shipping in the Canon and Nikon mounts. Limit five per buyer. There is no mention in the eBay listing of whether this is eligible for the Tamron mail-in rebates. $820 is the price you pay when you checkout from eBay (plus taxes if applicable).
The Tamron 16-300mm f3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO lens is on sale for $500 after $130 back with two mail-in rebates at B&H Photo. It is the regular $80 MIR plus a $50 bonus Black Friday MIR. The lens is available in the Canon, Nikon and Alpha SLR mounts. The $50 bonus rebate expires 12/7/15.

The Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens is on sale for $950 after $120 back with two mail-in rebates ($70 and $50) at B&H Photo. Not only that, but you also earn 10% promotional rewards on the purchase, which, considering the price of the lens, that’s a very decent amount. The $70 mail-in rebate (MIR) is the regular one, plus there is a $50 Black Friday limited time MIR (expires 12/7/15). PDFs and details at the individual product pages of the lenses. This is available in the Canon, Nikon, and Sony SLR mounts…

Another one of the DSLR offers of the Black Friday Ads is now price-matched by the internet. The Nikon D7100 2-Lens kit with the 18-55 DX VR and 55-300 DX VR lenses and extras (Wifi adapter, case, card) is price-matched to $1000 at B&H Photo (with 2% rewards) and Adorama and Amazon by Amazon.
On the other hand, if you only need the camera, and don’t care for the 18-55/55-300 lenses, you can get the body only manufacturer-refurbished with a 90 day Nikon USA warranty for $490 at Adorama
Free USB Dock with Sigma 150-600mm f5-6.3 DG OS HSM Lenses: $1090 for Contemporary, $2000 for Sports [C/N]

Prime time now, the Sigma 50mm f1.4 DG HSM ART is going for $850 with some extras in the Canon, Nikon, Sony and Sigma SLR mounts. At B&H Photo you get 4% promotional rewards (= $34~), while at Adorama you get a handful of free accessories and a 3-year NewLeaf spills-n-drops warranty. No freebies at the moment at Amazon.
The Nikon DSLR deal that appears in many of the Black Friday Ads is the Nikon D3300 two-lens VR kit (18-55, 55-200, both VR) for $500. The internets have now matched that deal, you can get the kit, with a wireless adapter, remote controller, 16GB card and $10~ promotional rewards for $500 at Adorama… Optionally you can add additional Nikon SLR lenses for a combined purchase discount (see the yellow “Special Offer” section)… Contrasting that, the D3200 2-lens VR kit goes for $400…
UPDATE: this offer also landed at Amazon for $500.
The Nikon D3200 is a stubborn DSLR. It refuses to go away. It even finds itself in the Black Friday spotlight. The Nikon D3200 two-lens DX VR kit (18-55, 55-200) is now on sale for $400 with frees shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit 5) and Adorama and B&H Photo et al.
NOTE: the newer Nikon D3300 two-lens VR kit will be offered for $500 during Black Friday (currently goes for $600). So there’s a $100 trade-off price-wise between the D3200 and D3300 two-lens VR kits.
Another decision point is whether you need the two DX VR lenses or not. You can get the D3200 body only in refurbished condition with a 90 day Nikon warranty for $245 at Adorama.
Another data point, you can get the D3200 two-lens kit with the non-VR lenses, in manufacturer refurbished condition for $300 by BuyDig on eBay.

While doing the price research for the APS-C DSLR edition of the Price Charts (coming before midnight tonight other things equal) I spotted this potentially interesting (among dozens of combinations/options out there mind you) Nikon D3200 new condition two lens kit with the 18-55 and 55-200 DX non-VR lenses. Neither lens is stabilized, so keep that in mind. It goes for $500 by Adorama on Amazon and B&H Photo (currently out of stock and cannot be ordered; ends 11/20/15 4:30pm)… The w/18-55 goes for $450 but it’s a VR lens…
