If you are not tempted by this week’s new condition Olympus instant savings [see Olympus posts], and you are comfortable with used cameras, the E-M5 II body only in the silver color is available in Used condition at B&H Photo starting at $650 in “Condition 8+”, and increasing for conditions 9 and 9+.
Used items purchased at B&H Photo come with a 90-day warranty covered by B&H Photo. These also get free expedited shipping. Check the main area and the “In the Box” section of each used listing for more details on the condition and what’s included.

The Fuji GFX-50S medium format body only goes for $6500 in new condition at authorized dealers, some of which offer a $650 trade-in discount, eg Adorama, IF you are willing to trade-in a top tier DSLR or MF camera.

Amazon Warehouse Deals is where Amazon itself and 3rd-party sellers are offering used and refurbished products through the Amazon website. A new twist on the Warehouse Deals website is that Amazon has launched a Clearance Section for it, they call it the “Bargain Bin”, where items are further discounted. A total of 24 departments are participating at the moment.
When you drill down the categories on the left-hand side over there, under “Electronics” you will find a Camera and Photo sub-category that includes 57 items as of the time of writing.
Among them, sorted by price, in ascending order:
+ USED Kenko 49mm Pro Softon Type-A Multi-Coated Camera Lens Filter for $3.63
+ USED MegaGear “Ever Ready” Protective Leather Camera Case for Canon SX-7XX series of P&S cameras for $4+
+ multiple colors available; drill further down by color to see all the options for that particular color
+ USED Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter (T-mount to M43rds cameras) for $4.78
+ USED Kenko 62mm Center Image Camera Lens Filter for $6~
+ USED Ape Case ACPRO342W Metro Collection Medium Camera Case (Black) for $10.32
+ USED Tamron AF 17-50mm F/2.8 SP XR Di II VC for $212 in the Canon EF version
+ free shipping for Prime members, or with a $25+/$35+ order
KEH Camera has Weekly Featured Deals and you can get 25% off those weekly specials using coupon code KEHDEALS over there. As of the time of writing, the options include the Nikon D7000 body only, and the 70-300mm F/4.5-6.3 G ED DX AF-P lens. Prices before the coupon start at $367 and $228 respectively. Prices vary by condition and available stock. Their weekly deals run Sunday though Friday each week. So these offers are good until Friday night.
The sale of the new condition is also good news if you are interested in buying USED lenses from reputable dealers. The used version of the Zeiss 135mm f/2 Apo Sonnar T* ZE (Canon EF) is available for as low as $900 with free shipping in USED Condition 8+ at B&H Photo.
If you are not familiar with B&H Used pages, each individual listing page has detailed on the Condition, and further down the page, on the right side, under “In The Box” shows what’s included. Here’s an example, the aforementioned lens. Used items sold by B&H come with a 90-day warranty covered by B&H (not the manufacturer). Given some spotty service by some manufacturers on some products, this may actually be a plus 🙂
PS: the Nikon version is nowhere near as low, it starts at $1200+…
This was on sale for $1499 last week, but if you are a Canon EF shooter, we have an even bigger discount for you! The Zeiss 135mm f/2 Apo Sonnar T* ZE Lens is down to $1299 with free expedited shipping (you don’t want a four-figure lens bouncing around in slow shipping) at B&H Photo along with 4% promotional rewards (around $52 to spend in the future at B&H). This is a limited time offer.
The Nikon F (ZF.2) remains at $1499.
There are multiple new condition Fuji X-T1 with free 35mm f2 R WR lens promotions currently running, but if all you want is the X-T1 camera body and don’t want/need the 35mm f2 lens, you can go the used route for the X-T1 body only.
At B&H Photo prices start at $560 with free expedited shipping in 8+ condition.
At Adorama [page down to see the options] prices start at $539 plus shipping (over $10 for the slowest shipping method).
Both B&H and Adorama offer 90-day warranties of their own for used cameras they sell on their respective websites.
If you are a more high-risk shopper, at Amazon Warehouse Deals you can get it seller-refurbished for $480 by 6ave, or for $489~ in “Used – Good” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. There are no promises of warranty, but they have a return policy.
If you are comfortable with used lenses, and don’t want to pay $1499 for the new condition, fear not, B&H Photo also has used options for you. The Zeiss 135mm f2 Sonnar T* in the Canon EF mount (ZE) is available in “USED – Condition 8+” for $1100 at B&H Photo, while the prices start at $1200 in “USED – Condition 9” in the Nikon F mount (ZF.2).
Used items carry a 90-day warranty covered by B&H Photo. For all their used options, look under the “In The Box” section (right hand side, further down the page over there) to see what’s included.
As usual, it is up to you to decide where to draw the price vs risk lines on new vs refurbished vs used.
The Sony a99 II 35mm full frame DSLR goes for $3200 in new condition at authorized dealers (eg Amazon itself or Adorama) but if you are comfortable buying DSLRs in used condition from reputable dealers…
… you can get the Sony a99 II body only in “USED – 9 Condition” (shows signs of use but very clean) for $2600 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo with a 90-day warranty offered by B&H Photo. The list of included items (as with all the used listings at B&H Photo) can be found under the “In The Box” section further down the right hand side of their website…
As usual, it’s up to you to trade off the price vs condition vs warranty…
When we first mentioned this last week there were multiple used listings and it was going for $10.80. As of the time of writing, there is only one used listing, and the price has inched upwards to $11.72. It is the “Used – Very Good” Ape Case ACPRO342W Camera Case at Amazon Warehouse Deals.
Of the other USED items we mentioned at the same time last week, their prices have changed as follows:
+ USED Dracast DR-DVT17A Tripod down from $75~ to $64~
+ Used Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter (T-mount Screw Lenses to M43rds Cameras) for $4 to $4.23 (up $0.13 since last time)

+ the Energizer Canon 60D battery grip sold out in used condition
+ for a deal fishing expedition, check the Amazon Warehouse Deals Bargain Bin
UPDATE: speaking of which, the ARRIS SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (SB6121) is offered in “Used – Like New” condition for $12. Not a bad price as a backup!
This 1-day coupon expired. If you missed it, fear not! They will likely have more coupons in the future…
If you are interested in buying used Nikon cameras or lenses or accessories, Tuesday is a good day to do so, because coupon code NIK07A gets you 5% off Nikon cameras, 10% off Nikon lenses, and 15% off accessories at the KEH website. If you are not certain whether an item qualifies, simply add item to cart and enter the coupon and see what happens. The shopping cart is the ultimate decider on the final price 🙂
This coupon expired but stay tuned in the future for future KEH coupons…
It’s coupon time! For Friday 7/21/17, coupon code BODY07A gets you 10% off Camera Bodies at KEH Camera. The coupon is towards the purchase of used camera bodies.
If you are looking for ideas, this page has the latest used KEH camera price drops. This coupon however only works on eligible camera bodies.
Another one of the Amazon Warehouse Deals Bargain Bin sales is the USED “Like New” condition Dracast DR-DVT17A Tripod for $75~ with free shipping and handling. The new condition price is $200.
The name is longer than the price! The Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter, T-Mount (T / T-2) Screw Mount SLR Lens to Micro Four Thirds Mount Mirrorless Camera Body is available in many listings in USED condition for $3.87 in “Used – Very Good” condition, and $4.09 in “Used – Like New” condition at Amazon Warehouse Deals, sold by Amazon WD itself. Free 2-day shipping for Prime members (or you can select the “no rush credits” promotion offered at checkout for slower shipping).
This item too is part of the Clearance Bin sale at Amazon Warehouse Deals.
If you are comfortable buying used f2.8 PRO zoom APS-C lenses, the previously mentioned Amazon Warehouse Deals Bargain Bin Clearance includes the Tamron AF 17-50mm F/2.8 SP XR Di II VC lens as follows:
+ the Canon EF mount is available in “Used – Very Good” condition (check each individual listing) for $203 with free shipping
+ the Nikon F mount has only one listing, “Used – Good” condition for $252~ with free shipping
The above two links are filtered so they only show the options sold and shipped by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself (in other words, Amazon proper). If you want to compare prices to the other Amazon Warehouse Deals sellers, here are the two links un-filtered:
+ the Canon EF mount
+ the Nikon F mount
In new condition, these lenses go for $650 at authorized dealers, such as B&H Photo and Adorama.
PS: in Tamron-speak, “Di II” is an APS-C lens, and “VC” is optical image stabilization (VC = vibration correction).
That didn’t take long! The previously mentioned Warehouse Deals clearance sale has yielded a used doorbuster of sorts, especially if you are a Prime member or planning a $25+ order: the Ape Case ACPRO342W Metro Collection Medium Camera Case in black is available in “Used – Very Good” condition for $10.80 at Amazon Warehouse Deals. There are five used listings as of the time of writing. I don’t know how many actual used bags are available.
The new condition price of this is $40+. At Amazon, it has six customer reviews with a 3.3 out of 5 average.
For more camera bags, check our new experiment, a day-long running Bag the Bags round-up.
As of a 7/24/17 recheck, this is sold out in USED condition…
Even mo(i)re Bargain Bin sales at Amazon Warehouse Deals, it is the “Used – LIKE NEW” condition Energizer ENG-C60D Battery Grip for Canon 60D for $14~ with free shipping for Prime members. The description says this is in damaged original packaging.
I just completed a full update of the Stock Status Tracker and the latest situation on the Fuji X100F is this:

Canon fans! For Thursday 7/13/17, KEH has a Canon Sale offering 5% off Canon Cameras, 10% off Canon Lenses, and 15% off Canon Accessories with coupon code CAN07A entered over there.
Select items at Amazon Warehouse Deals get an automatic 20% off discount in the shopping cart. There’s no coupon code to enter. The price drops after you add it to the shopping cart. Eligible items mention it in their used listings. Only items sold by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself are eligible, not by other sellers. Offer ends Monday night 7/10/17.
Amazon Warehouse Deals sells used and refurbished items. Just like the regular new condition Amazon purchases, both Amazon itself and 3rd-party sellers are offering products. As usual, be careful when seeing “Just Launched” or otherwise iffy sellers, especially if they are offering the product for the lowest price or a too good to be true price or ask you to contact them before buying.
This is one of the first wave Prime Day deals. You can find this and many more at the on-going Prime DAY Situation Room.
In other Amazon Prime deals, the certified refurbished Amazon Echo goes for $90 in black or white, with a limit of one color per customer. Offer ends by 3am ET on Sunday or earlier if they sell out of them.
Prime Day offers are only available to Prime members. If you are Prime curious, this is a good opportunity to start a 30-day free trial and participate in the festivities. We have a Comprehensive Guide to Prime Benefits if you need a refresher…
It’s the rise of the machine! The Amazon Price Bots are at it again, they have price-matched a 3rd-party seller, so currently the Ricoh GR II Big Sensor Prime is going for $569 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit three per customer. Shhhh, don’t tell the grown-ups 🙂 It currently goes for $659 at B&H and Adorama.
On the other hand, if you are fond of used cameras, used prices start at $479 plus shipping at Adorama.
PS: the $109 used price at Adorama is a much older model with a similar name, it is a 10mp 1/1.75″ CCD camera from way back.
I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and this is the situation with the Fuji X100F Big Sensor Prime:
SILVER FUJI X100F
+ USED Adorama for $1139 + S&H
+ USED Amazon Warehouse Deals itself for $1202~
+ NEW Best Buy (eBay)
+ NEW OC Camera (eBay)
+ new condition price is $1300
BLACK FUJI X100F
+ USED Amazon Warehouse Deals itself for $1169~
+ USED Adorama for $1204 + S&H
+ NEW Adorama (low stock)
+ NEW Amazon itself
+ NEW OneCall
+ new condition price is $1300
If you are tempted by the Sigma Foveon DSLRs but don’t want to spend the big bucks to buy in new condition, one lucky photographer can get the Sigma SD1 Merrill body only in “Used – Good” condition for $692 with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals itself. Make sure they are the seller and not random / unknown sellers. According to the shopping cart, there is only one unit available from AWD. See screenshots below if you are not familiar with how these work:
When you add it to the shopping cart, it reveals the available quantity:
If of all the Fuji X system cameras it is the X-T1 body only the one you want, it is currently available in used condition starting at $630 at B&H Photo with free expedited shipping. This is a Condition 9. They also have higher and lower conditions. Make sure to check under the “In the Box” section for each individual used listing to see which ones of the original accessories are included. The included accessories affect price and you may or may not need them depending on what other accessories you already have.
Used products sold at the B&H Photo website come with a 90-day warranty from B&H Photo, not the manufacturer.
On the other hand, if you prefer refurbished, and want the 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 lens as well, the X-T1 with 18-55 kit is offered in Certified Refurbished condition by Dealfisher fulfiled by Amazon for $855~ with free shipping. Since it is fulfilled by Amazon, it is Prime eligible, and it ships from Amazon’s warehouses, which makes potential returns and customer service more streamlined since you deal with Amazon, not the 3rd-party seller.
Note that “certified refurbished” is an Amazon term as it refers to products sold on their website under the “Certified Refurbished” banner. Among others things they offer a minimum of a 90-day warranty. This is Amazon’s Help Page on certified refurbished. And this is a listing of Certified Refurbished products on their website.
Note also that “certified refurbished” does not necessarily mean “manufacturer refurbished” in Amazon’s “certified refurbished” context.
If you are comfortable with heavily used cameras, the first generation Olympus E-M5 body only is available in “Used – Very Good” condition starting at $244 [WAS $225; updated 7/3/17] plus shipping at Adorama. Their “Used – Very Good” condition is described in general as:
Appears well used and may include dings, scrapes/scratches, heavy brassing on body or LCD, but is in fully functional condition.
Make sure you also check further down the listing for potentially additional information, and also check under “What’s In the Box” to see what’s included in the package. Often times with used items you don’t get all the original accessories and packaging and such. Adorama offers a 90-day warranty of their own on the used gear they sell.
If you are not comfortable with heavy used gear, check this post for a factory reconditioned alternative…
On the other hand, if you are comfortable with used lenses that have known issues, you can get the Nikon version of the Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO Zoom Lens for $309 plus shipping (starts at $8+) in “Used – Fair” condition at Adorama.
Make sure you understand the used condition designations at Adorama and read the details in the listing of each used item. This particular lens is described as “PLEASE NOTE: Lens does not auto focus; image quality will; be affected; cosmetic condition is V; may have other issues”. So fans of manual focusing 🙂
If any of these make you uncomfortable, do not buy! The new condition goes for $500 and bundled with freebies.
An update of the Stock Status Tracker is in progress. The Fuji X-T2 Graphite body only remains out of stock in new condition, but if you are comfortable with USED cameras, there are two used listings of it at Amazon Warehouse Deals by Amazon itself (their used subsidiary) for $1540 with free shipping in “Used – Like New” condition. Both have descriptions, and one of the two has actual pictures of the used cameras. As usual, used camera supplies are typically limited, especially for hard to find cameras.
