It is good to have choices, but at the same time, it can be overwhelming for someone trying to decide on a Nikon DSLR, with various models and various conditions (new, refurbished, used, imported, different kit options, etc).

If the price of the brand new Nikon D7200 body only ($1200) is too high, but the good old D7000 ($500~) is deemed too old in DSLR years, one possible way to triangulate between the two is the manufacturer refurbished Nikon D7100, currently on sale as such for $700 with free shipping by Adorama. This is “blessed” by Nikon USA with a 90 day warranty.

The Nikon combined purchase DSLR + Lens discounts are back at Amazon. You can purchase one DSLR and multiple lenses in the same shopping cart transaction, and receive a discount for each eligible lens. You can see all options at the Amazon promotional page.
TIP #1: not every lens is eligible for every dSLR. This is mentioned on the aforelinked page, but to be on the safe side, add the items of interest and check and double-check the discounts on the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page
TIP #2: some of the bundles with free accessories are also eligible for this promotion. For example, when looking at the D5300 options page, carefully peruse to find the color/kit combo with the free extras. The extras are typically an AmazonBasics DSLR bag and 32GB SD card.
TIP #3: the just announced Nikon D7200 shows this promotion on its product page, but when I add it to cart with various lenses there are no discounts. There are two possible explanations: 1) because the camera is not shipping yet, the discounts are not working or 2) the promotion has not yet been activated in the shopping cart, or 3) both or 4) something else
In case you haven’t seen or done one of these promotions in a while, here is an annotated screenshot shot of the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page with one DSLR and a few lenses added to the shopping cart.
