    The MSRP on the old D700 is in fact reduced to $2900.00 — the first reduction since it was introduced. And remember, “MSRP. Dealer may sell for less.” LOLROTF

  • shivas

    so is this cheap compared to what we get here? should I drive to montreal this weekend and buy??!!

  • Quash

    NRAdmin,

    Can you clarify? You said the list is lenses only. As in, only lenses received the Nikon price reduction OR lens price reduction info is all that is currently available?

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ [NR] admin

      The above list is not official, it may not be complete or final – it was done by a reader.

    • LudwigC

      Quash,
      I only recorded the before, and after prices of lenses. Based on the premise that the adjustment was made to reflect the stronger $Cdn dollar, my “guess” would be that some of the camera bodies/other equipment exceeding $1,000 may have received a price adjustment as well. I just don’t the have the “before” picture to be able to confirm.

      • http://nikonrumors.com/ [NR] admin

        thanks for your comparison Ludwig

  • Theo

    US dollars or Canadian?

    • SimonC

      The prices above are in Canadian dollars.

  • David

    USD and Canadian is 1:1.047, essentially at par.

  • johnny

    Super lame price drop, Nikon Canada :(
    Will be buying next lens from fleabay or the US

    • Gustav

      No warranty service in Canada if you buy Nikon stuff in the US.

      Plus, Nikon’s warranties are better in Canada – 2 years for bodies, 5 for lenses. Could be worth the higher price, IMHO.

      • http://www.flickr.com/photos/stephenkirsh/ Stephen

        lens warranty in the US is 5 years.

  • Anonymous

    I was expecting more than that….

    And it’s kinda lame for those who already own the lens… its value just dropped…

  • Anonymous

    those prices suck but keep in mind dealers prices are often lower if you know how to price shop.. lets just hope the “cheaper” priced dealers adjust accordingly… I doubt it though…

    • M!

      @ANONYMOUS
      my dealer adjusted the prices for me for the lens and body i have on order.

  • France

    Just go to photoprice.ca to compare prices in Canada. I am not sure the new prices will be showing up, it might take a few days.

  • Nikon Luv/Hate ~

    Wow, make me want ot go out and buy awhole bunch of missing lenses in my lineup…… NOT..

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/stephenkirsh/ Stephen

    does anybody actually care about a 5% savings? “OMG, that $2000 lens is $100 less. I’m SOLD now!”

    • Ronan

      I sure don’t. I still find it insulting compare to ebay ‘new’ prices and US prices.

      • Ronan

        I can add i already have all the lenses i need. The only thing interesting would be a tilt-shift lens or replacing my current lenses with the ‘new’ models. Like my 70-200 to the new one.

    • M!

      Yes i care. My 70-200 VRII is that hasn’t arrived is now $150 cheaper. and so is my D3S. so that’s $300+ tax. $320 cheaper now with the price drop.
      why not i care?

  • David

    The $C has appreciated against the dollar almost 20% YTD, largely due to the weakness of the dollar generally and also due to the $C’s tie to commodity prices like oil. However, historically, the $C has typically been at par with the dollar and the current value is about average for the past five years. I suspect Nikon’s price adjustment isnt’ owed completely to currency concerns as many of the lenses which have been reduced were initially priced before the dollar started to weaken, but rather a move to help the Canadian retailers equalize what appears to be a more aggressive pricing by the U.S. retailers during a recession? In any event, perhaps 5% isn’t a bit deal in our pockets, but lets keep in mind that a 5% difference in EBITA for a large consumer electronic company is significant. Television makers, for instance, rarely make over 10% profit margin. If the $2,000 lens is too expensive, maybe it’s time to consider the cheaper lenses which Nikon also offers ;)

  • YEAH

    dude I write you list like tat too. LOL

    • David

      ?

  • Alex

    If you buy the wole list, you save $2750 !
    Is that not cool ?
    Thank you Nikon !

    For future blog posts like this, I’d suggest you simplify the formatting. Keeping the order you have is good, but group all the items that have no price reduction into a separate category at the end and list them simply as “Lens xx-xx/x.x, $yyy.yy”. It would make the whole list shorter and clearer, and more oriented toward what the reader is looking for.

  • kevin

    Mleh I bought my lenses for cheaper than they are showing there. I am thinking that is just the MSRP. I mean I paid $1799 for my 14-24 and $1699 for the 17-35.

    What I really wanna see is $500 off the D3s.

  • David

    The 14-24mm f/2.8 is a bargain at any price! I know of no other lens that is capable of even coming close in performance. Ok maybe not any price, but hats off to Nikon for making what I think is the best wide angled lens in the DSLR world, prime included. (thought the 28mm f/1.4 is a hect of a close second).

  • Alex

    Any discount on the D700x ?

    • Anonymous

      No, you still have to buy a D3x and a D700, take both apart and assemble the D3x parts into the D700 body.

      Takes a bit of practice, but most people work out how to get it right on the fourth or fifth try.

      It does void your warranty of course.

    • M!

      your D700x joke is getting boring.

  • Anonymous

    no change on the 200 f/2 :(

  • Calvin

    sad thing is there is no update for 17-35 :(

  • David

    MostlyDigital sells the D90 body only for CAD$875 and $300 more for the 18-105mm kit lens

    The D5000 body is at CAD$618 and CAD$741
