Manufacturer-created Lens bundles are all the rage these days. Nikon has a Landscape and Macro DX bundle with the 40mm f/2.8 MACRO and 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR lenses, both DX (APS-C), on sale for $547 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo.
This is a “Coming Soon” item, it is not in-stock yet! The 40/2.8 goes for $277 on its own, while the 10-20/4.5-5.6 goes for $307 on its own, for a total of $584 if purchased separately.
A new week has arrived which means another round of featured USED Weekly Sales at KEH has been added. These are eligible for 25% off with permanent coupon KEHDEALS and continue until Friday night of the same week (eg Friday 9/29/17 in this case).
This week includes:
+ USED Nikon D80 body only starting at $74~ in “BGN” condition and going up in “EX” and “EX+” conditions
+ USED Pentax 55mm F/1.8 SMC Takumar M42 Screw Mount Manual Focus Lens starting at $23 in “BGN” with some damage and going up to $42 in “EX” condition
+ also eligible for the coupon are four photo-accessories – details at the Weekly Sales at KEH
In a separate promotion, not eligible for the coupon above, KEH has an on-going overstock sale with over 400 items participating.
Also, ending by Sunday night, they have a Buy More, Save More coupon promotion ($25/$200+ or $75/$600+ or $150/$1000+)
Continuing to dig into the Bargain Bin, as of the time of writing, there is one listing of the Used Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-6.3G ED DX non-VR lens, in “Used – Like New” condition [no further details given] going for $120~ with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself.
This lens currently goes for $350 on its own in new condition, but it’s frequently bundled with more recent Nikon DSLR two lens kit, so the $350 price is a bit misleading in terms of its effective street market price.
This 1-day coupon expired… If you missed it, fear not ~ KEH has coupons on a regular basis…

It is good to have choices. Especially when it comes to normal prime lenses 🙂 There is a cascade of three options for the good old Nikon 50mm f1.8D lens depending on condition and warranty situation:
+ manufacturer refurbished for $100 with free shipping at Adorama with a 90-day Nikon USA warranty
+ new condition imported grey-market with filter kit, and accessoro-trinkets for $112 by eBay seller “PhotoVideo 4 Less” without warranty

Another discount among the used offerings at Amazon Warehouse Deals, there are three listings available in “Used Very Good” and “Used Like New” condition of the Nikon AF-P DX 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED non-VR lens with prices ranging from $114 to $120 for the “Used – Like New” condition. Given the price difference between them and the price difference between the new condition model, probably getting the best condition is a good idea!
PS: this listing shows all the used options.
We have another In-Stock Alert, the brand new Nikon AF-P 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR is now in-stock and ready to ship at its starting price of $747 with free shipping at B&H Photo and Adorama.
The value of free accessories may be diluted when you are buying a $2000 camera or lens, but when you are buying a $150 item, the free accessories are a much higher percentage of the value of a product. Case in point, the new condition Nikon 55-200mm f4-5.6G ED AF-S DX VR II is on sale for $147 at some authorized Nikon authorized dealers.
At Adorama, you can get it for the same price, with free shipping with FREE accessories: the Corel software bundle (five titles, including AfterShot PRO 2 and Paintshop PRO X9 and VideoStudio 9), a 52mm Pro Optic Filter Kit (three filters and a case), and a lens cap tether.
If you don’t want/need the free accessories, you can instead get 4% promotional rewards at B&H Photo for the same price of $147 with free S&H.
Adorama has received another shipment of refurbished Nikon cameras and lenses, refurbished by Nikon USA with a 90-day warranty. This is the listing of the most recent 22 refurbished options, a mix of cameras new and old. Speaking of old, they have the refurb D2X body only for $850.

The Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR goes for $400 at authorized dealers which are allowed to include free accessories with it, such as Adorama.

Needless to say this is a higher risk purchase, so if you don’t feel comfortable without any warranty, do not buy!
Prime time for APS-C Nikon shooters. The new condition 35mm f1.8G DX is bundled with a 52mm ProOptic filter kit, and a lens-cap tether, and a cleaning and $6.68 promotional rewards at Adorama… The same price is available but with only a Nikon cleaning kit and promotional rewards as freebies at B&H Photo…

The Nikon 50mm f/1.8G lens is bundled with some free extras for $177 with free shipping at Adorama.

If you don’t want/need the extra accessories, you can get it for the same price with 4% promotional rewards at B&H Photo or 5% back as a statement credit for Prime members paying with Store Card or Chase VISA at Amazon itself
