In addition to the new Nikon lens-only rebates, the prices of the D750 and D810 filmmaker's kits are now $350 off with 2% in rewards:

The last time I calculated it (without the new $350 rebate), the D750 kit offered savings of about $650 compared to purchasing the items separately. The D810 kit's savings were $993.

What to expect next from Nikon

Nikon Rumors
This is an updated post on what to expect from Nikon in the future - the next official announcement will be this week (most likely tonight EST) and will include three new, previously rumored lenses:

AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f:5.6E ED VRAF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f:2.8E ED VRNikon AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f:1.8G ED lens

Rumored Nikon products that will be announced later in 2015 or in early 2016:

Nikon-D5-DSLR-camera-logo
→ Nikon D5: the D5 is rumored to have 15 fps continuous shooting rate. The official announcement will most likely be at the next CES show in January 2016.

Nikon-Coolpix-logo
→ Nikon Coolpix camera with a large sensor:

  • Nikon is working on new Coolpix cameras with a large sensor. Most likely there will be two different models.
  • On several occasions in the past Nikon's reps mentioned that they are still committed to their mirrorless and Coolpix product lines and they still see potential future in 4K video and advanced compact cameras.
  • I am still not sure of the size of the sensor - I am receiving rumors for everything between 1" to APS-C and full frame. Most likely there will be one model with 1" sensor and another with a DX sensor (replacement for the Coolpix A, which is already listed as discontinued). In a recent interview, Nikon's executive confirmed that a new compact camera with 1" sensor is coming in the future:

Q: Any new Coolpix A? Any plans to respond to Canon and Sony's 1-inch sensor fixed-lens compact cameras?
A: Sony's 1-inch CSC is definitely very successful. We will have a competing product in the future.

New: Nikon may also announce a new super-zoom compact Coolpix P4000 camera with 24-4800mm f/3.8-10 lens (200x zoom), 1.5kg. weight, 3.5" LCD screen and magnesium body. After the success of the P9000 (out of stock everywhere), it is very likely that Nikon will introduce another super-zoom model.
