Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 DG OS HSM + FREE Sigma TC-2001 2X TeleConverter + $136 Rewards for $3400 [C/N/Si]

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.

As of a 7:22pm ET recheck, the eBay listing has ended/closed… For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker

The listing has pictures of the actual camera and a list of what’s included. They also have “Make Offer” enabled. Check the listing and the seller in detail before buying if interested.

Imported Nikon D850 w/1-YR Seller Warranty drops to $3200

I just updated the new line-up of the Stock Status Tracker (with the Fuji X-H1 added, the X100F and GH5 removed) and we have a greed price war on the imported Nikon D850 body only front. “Deals All Year” went greedy and skyrocketed their prices from $3240 to $3800, but they just got undercut by another imported, 6ave on eBay is offering the new condition imported grey market with a 1-year seller (not Nikon USA) warranty for $3200 with free shipping, with a maximum of three per customer. The new condition price at authorized Nikon USA dealers is $3300.

PS: if you need a full frame Nikon DSLR now, want the D850 but the waiting is driving you mad, there are some good deals on other refurbished Nikon DSLRs that can keep you going until/unless the D850 becomes available. You won’t lose as much money selling/trading a refurbished DSLR (or you can keep it as a backup).

Refurbished Nikon D610 body w/90D W for $1040

As you can tell by today’s posts so far, the first round of price-checking for the Price Charts is the 35mm Full Frame Cameras (iLC or Fixed Lens). The Nikon D610 body only goes for $1500 at authorized Nikon USA dealers, but if you are willing to the manufacturer refurbished, you can pay just over 2/3rds of that, going for $1040 with free shipping at Adorama with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty.

Refurbished Nikon D810 Body w/90D W for $1900

If you are going to get the Nikon D810, since it is no longer the latest model [that’s the elusive Nikon D850 – see Stock Status Tracker], you might as well go the way of the refurbished and save a significant amount of money.

The new condition Nikon D810 body only goes for $2800 at authorized dealers, but if you go the manufacturer refurbished route, you can get it for $1900 with free shipping at Adorama with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty. That’s $900 less!

PS: “90D” is short for 90 days, “W” is short for Warranty. I am trying to keep blog-post titles one line with the desktop/laptop view. If they go for more than one line, they’d better fill up the second line, otherwise they are eating up space.

Nikon D810A gone from B&H and Adorama but still available

Another disappearing act! The Nikon D810A is no longer available for purchase from B&H Photo and Adorama, but if you still want to get it in new condition from an authorized dealer Amazon itself has it for its normal price of $3800 with a maximum of three per customer. It is in the all-encompassing “temporarily out of stock” shipping estimate though.

Nikon D5 Anniversary gone from B&H, but still available elsewhere

The time is right in the year for a brand new Price Charts series to begin! I have began doing the spreadsheet work and price-checking! This will continue for this week (other things equal) and you may see an increase in deals/posts featuring the cameras that are tracked in the Price Charts as the price-checks surface different kinds of deals directly or indirectly.

If you want to re-familiarize yourself with the Price Charts series, this link shows all previous editions (going back to December 2014).

The first thing that surfaced is the Nikon D5 Anniversary edition is starting to run out. The camera is marked Discontinued and unorderable at B&H Photo but it remains in-stock at Adorama for the five of you that may interested in it πŸ™‚ Amazon itself still has it as “not yet released” but it’s still available for $8000 by Adorama and Unique Photo thru Amazon. Paying for this with an Amazon Prime VISA or Prime Store Card gets you a 5% statement credit, which in this case it’s a pretty nice $400 amount!

Refurbished Nikon D7500 body w/90D W for $900

The new condition Nikon D7500 APS-C body only goes for $1250 in new condition at authorized Nikon USA dealers such as Amazon and Adorama. But if you want to pay 3/4ths of that price…

Imported Nikon D850 Body drops to $3230

A new development after today’s Stock Status Tracker update. We have another discount on the Imported Grey Market Nikon D850 Body on eBay by eBay seller Deals All Year, it dropped from $3250 to $3230 with free shipping and a 1-year seller warranty. The new condition price at authorized Nikon USA dealers is $3300.

As far as the other tracked cameras, it is status quo. Both the Sony a7r III and Panasonic G9 are steadily available at authorized dealers, although individual sellers may go in and out.

On a meta note, this is the last time we have the Fuji X100S in the Stock Tracker. The camera has been steady in prices, both used and new for a while now, so it will be retired. However, I am saving the entries, so if something happens that necessitates its return, it will be very easy to bring it back!

IF there are any other cameras or lenses you’d like to see tracked, please leave a comment here or at the Stock Tracker or the online contact form

Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD with FREE Hoya 82mm Filter + $32 Rewards for $799 [C/N]

I couldn’t decide between a tummy and a Tammy Wynette intro for this deal, so let’s just pretend I wrote something funny and move on to the deal πŸ™‚

Note that the lens on sale is the first generation. The latest model is the G2 from Tamron which goes for $1199 in Canon and Nikon (without rewards or free Hoya filter).

I’m sure Pentax and Sony A shooters would love an $800 lens of this kind as well but is only a Canikon lens πŸ™ At least the Pentax 24-70mm f2.8 is $1100, unlike Canon and Nikon who double or triple that amount.

Sigma 17-50 f2.8 EX DC OS HSM + 4% Rewards for $369 [C/N/A/P]

It is currently going for $2800 with 59 bids. It ships from North Carolina for $13, from a 100% eBay user (91 transactions). The auction ends on Monday at 3:32pm eastern. Mayhaps the Superbowl will distract some and the price won’t skyrocket πŸ™‚

Nikon D7500 w/18-55 & & 70-300 & Extended Warranty & Extras for $1600 (Costco members) or $1680 (non-members)

If you happen to want both the Nikon D7500 APS-C DSLR and the 18-55 DX VR and 70-300 f4.5-6.3G VR AF-P lenses, Costco has them in a bundle for $1600 with free shipping. You also get a 2-year extended warranty on the camera body (not the lenses) along with a 32GB SD card, an extra battery, a Nikon branded gagdet bag and a Nikon online class.

Non-members can buy this online with a 5% surcharge, which in this case is $80 more. Given that an annual Costco membership is $60 (Gold Star individual or Business member), it makes sense to sign up for a membership instead of paying the $80 non-member surcharge. Occasionally they have new member promotions that give you some freebies for your first membership year. Then with a membership you buy a mountain of toilet paper and “tp” all your frenemies πŸ˜‰

This bundle may also be available at your local Costco store but they don’t have a store look-up option (yet???) on their website.
