This is a live price, not part of the lightning deals, so only the future knows if/when it will change.

Nikon D610 body drops to $1500, D810 drops to $3000 [corrected]

If there’s an official Canon discount, there’s must also be a parallel Nikon discount, otherwise the planet will spin off its axis! Nikon too has a new round of discounts, these are more user-friendly though, they are instant-rebates, not mail-in rebates. The Nikon D610 body only goes for $1500, while the Nikon D810 goes for $3000 [corrected; I deducted $300 twice]. The other kits based on these cameras have been discounted appropriately. You can see these nicely organized at Adorama. The promotion expires by the end of day on 12/13/14 per that page. You also get free overnight shipping!

Four Free Accessories (including WU-1b wireless adapter) with Nikon D610 kits

Sigma 150–500mm F/5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM (C/N/A/P/S) for $770 [not sure about warranty]

Groupon Goods is offering the new condition Sigma 150–500mm F/5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM for $770 with free shipping in the five SLR mounts (Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Sigma). One thing to pay attention to is that it only says “One-year warranty from Sigma”.

I don’t know if this is an incomplete explanation of the warranty, since Groupon does not specialize in camera gear? Or it this actually different from the warranty offered by other sellers? For example, if you look at the pages of this lens at Adorama or B&H Photo, where it goes for $870, it says you get a one year international warranty plus a two year USA warranty.

Adorama is offering a free one year New Leaf Spills and Drops warranty on select cameras and lenses from Canon or Nikon or Sony. To get this, go to the individual product page of a camera or lens, click on the small link under “Buy together and save” and manually add the New Leaf warranty to your bundle. This is on top of the standard manufacturer warranty, since most manufacturers don’t cover spills and drops.

Adorama has launched a wave of Nikon offers. A number of cameras includes extra accessories and/or promotional rewards and free shipping.

Due to time constraints I can’t price check every single item listed in all those pages, so that is a DIY adventure.

Rokinon 8mm f3.5 fisheye (six mounts) for $200

The Rokinon 8mm f3.5 fisheye lens is on sale for $200 with free shipping in six different mounts, five SLR (C/N/A/P and Four Thirds) and Sony E-mount at B&H Photo.

Imported/Grey Market Nikon D610 body for $1200 (seller warranty)

Also one of the featured eBay Deals is the new condition imported/grey-marked Nikon D610 body offered for $1200 with free shipping, with a limit of five per buyer. The seller is bigvalueinc (99.4%). Over 120 cameras got sold through this eBay listing so far.

NOTE: this does not come with a manufacturer warranty. It comes with a one year warranty from the seller. This was part of the D610 with lens kit, but the lens removed. Selling the lens and body separately is more profitable since the bundle has a built-in discount. Some sellers use the term “broken kit” to describe this but it’s an unfortunate term because when a shopper reads “broken”, they run away scared 🙂

The standard Nikon D610 body only kit from authorized Nikon USA dealers goes for $1600 (eg Amazon, B&H Photo), so you have trade-offs, such as $400 vs manufacturer-warranty, authorized Nikon dealers vs eBay sellers and such. It’s up to you to triangulate your risk matrix on deals like this – there’s no one size fits all answer.

B&H Photo offers: Bower 16mm T2.2, refurb Nikon D610, Vanguard Legs, Oly E-M5, NIRs

Refurbished Nikon D5300 w/18-55 for $630 (limit 2)

UPDATE (11/18/14): as of this update, this is marked as an “Item Under Review”. It will be unavailable for purchase for a few hours/days until it gets sorted out. It is not uncommon for this thing to show up on various Amazon.com listings.

Amazon is now selling refurbished products “natively” (on the main product page), not just the Warehouse Deals. One of the guinea pigs of this new development is the refurbished Nikon D5300 w/18-55 going for $630 with free shipping, with a limit of two per shopping cart. This is sold by Amazon herself, not marketplace sellers… An annotated screenshot crop of the product page showing all these is after the jump (it is a tall picture, so it’s not on the front page to prevent taking over the whole page).

NOTE: you may not see this format when you visit that page – the Amazon web servers often test different versions on different browsers, operating systems, screen sizes, and Viewports (the visible part in the actual browser window, which on a desktop may be significantly different from the screen size/resolution; that was a long way of saying, browser windows can be of many different sizes on a desktop, from full screen to tiny little boxes).
