PS: to make sure I type the correct company name, this is indeed a Tokina lens, not a Tamron. Both with six characters, start with a T, and share 4 out of the 6 letters in their names. It’s as if they wanted to confuse us 😉

Pre-order the Nikon D850 FilmMaker’s Kit for $5500

Nikon has a hard time making enough Nikon D850s to satisfy demand but that didn’t stop them from creating the “FilmMaker’s Kit”, it is the D850 body only bundled with a trio of f1.8G FX lenses (20, 35, 85), the ME-1 Stereo Microphone and ME-W1 wireless microphone, a 7 inch Atomos Ninja Flame and a spare EN-EL15a battery.

The price of this bundle is $5500 and it is available for pre-ordering at Amazon by Amazon itself and by Adorama and by B&H Photo… This has been added to our Stock Status Tracker

WHEN DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO BUY THE FILMMAKER KIT?

The three f1.8G lenses on their own go for $800, $527, $477 respectively, totaling (with the help of a calculator) $1804. The Atomos goes for $795 on its own, increasing the bundle value to $2600. The battery goes for $60 on its own, while the two microphones go for $134 and $199 respectively. So that’s a total under $3000 for the Filmmaker kit, plus $3300 for the camera = $6300, with an asking price of $5500 for the bundle.

So with a difference of $2200 between the D850 body only ($3300) and the Filmmaker kit ($5500), you’d need to want at least $2200 worth of the kit items to make this a good deal. In other words, if you want all three lenses AND the Atomos, then it’s worth doing it, otherwise it becomes a too close to call type of a situation.

Sunpak DF3000C Digital Flash for $30 w/FS [C/N/A]

IF you are curious about the Nikon lens line-up, set your alarm clocks!

This is streaming until 12pm ET today. I don’t know if they plan to stream it again for Saturday. Some of the rebroadcasts run on back to back days, others are single day.

Nikon D850 body only has a March 13 estimate

Don’t run to the hills! Run to Amazon! An update of the Stock Status Tracker shows a March 13th estimate for the Nikon D850 at Amazon by Amazon itself at its starting price of $3300. The various kits with various Nikon lenses shown on the same listing have the same estimates since they simply ship you the boxes of the camera and the lens(es) of choice; these are not separate Nikon boxes for every D850 + lens combination. As long as the lenses too are in a similar or better stock situation.

As usual, keep in mind estimates are estimates, and they change over time based on a variety of reasons!

Zeiss Wedding Weeks sale [C/N/E/M]

Imported Nikon D810 body w/1-YR Seller Warranty for $1900

The new condition Nikon D810 body only goes for $2800 at authorized dealers which offer it with a variety of useful freebies, eg, Adorama. But if you are comfortable with imported grey-market cameras…

… to the eBay Deals we go where eBay seller “6ave” (98.7%) is offering the Nikon D810 body only in new condition imported grey-market with a 1-year seller warranty for $1900 with free shipping with up to three units per customer at the sale price…

The price difference is certainly big, $900! Considering that the D810 is a previous generation model, going refurbished or used or grey-market may be the smart money idea. After all, $3300 can theoretically get you the new Nikon D850 [impossible to find – check Stock Status Tracker], so why spend $2800 on the previous generation ~ unless of course you specifically want the D810 in new condition from authorized dealers.
