Semi-Curated Nikon Sale on eBay (300 items)

eBay is currently having a semi-curated Nikon Camera Gear sale featuring around 300 items, a mix of new and refurbished, authorized and not. Unfortunately I am not a 64-thread AI, so I can’t “digest” 300 items on the fly, so this is a YMMV adventure if interested in Nikon gear.

PS: I call it “semi-curated” because I don’t know how this gets assembled (how much human and how much computer input).

Refurbished Nikon 55-300mm f4.5-5.6G ED DX VR w/90-day warranty for $189

I manually add these tags to each post, so human miscategorization errors are statistically unavoidable 🙂

Imported Nikon 50mm f1.8G for $168

More imported camera gear action at the eBay Deals, with a Nikon prime. eBay seller “PhotoVideo4Less” (99.9%, Brooklyn::NewYork) is offering the new condition imported Nikon 50mm f1.8G lens for $168 with free shipping. There is no warranty mentioned in the eBay listing, so assume it gets no warranty.

This lens goes for $218 with free accessories at authorized Nikon USA dealers such as B&H Photo and Adorama (including the Corel software bundle). So it’s up to you to trade off the manufacturer warranty and the free accessories versus paying $50 less.

The action continues when you scroll further down the eBay Deals (it can take half a day to go through them all).
