    wow! Nikon is doing everything to beef up its numbers.

    • Jose

      Long time

      According 2009 results, bad economic year, Nikon had blue numbers and beat off course canon who did not have good number since 2008.

      Under crisis is normal that manufacturer o eberything to increase sales that is the reason that you can buy a new car with out money in advance and six month to make first payment or get a day free for disney entrance during your birthday.

      Again if you have a BMW you can nor swap to ferrari because BMW have not 12 cilinder motor. Probabbly you will maintain your BMW because is a very good car that is may opinion regarding nikon, this is a very good camera with a good support with a very good quality.

        In the meantime while these greedy japanese cameramakers are crying about bad economy companies like apply are doing just fine! There is a reason for that …. e.g. the same lineup does not work

  • Geoff_K

    ROFL again they charge more for the package so you lose out on some of the refund. IF you buy the items 1 at a time the price is 6735.90 then take 700 and you are at 6035.90

    They are asking 6986.95 then taking off 700 for 6286.95 looks like $250.00 is not making it to me ?

      Nikon D700 Digital SLR Camera with Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S Lens & 70-200mm f/2.8G AF-S VR II Zoom-Nikkor ED-IF Lens – USA Warranty

      This adds up to a 700.00 rebate and the price comes to $5,738.90.

      Compare Adorama’s individual prices with bhphotovideo.com or amazon.com.

  • http://www.christiancolumbres.com C_dawg

    why no combos deals with the d3x/d3s?

    • zzddrr

      Because Nikon cannot make it since they fired all their employees. The are going to switch making paintbrushes so we cannot complain about the 12MP lineup. :-)

  • EAJ

    Nice job with the chart!

    • JJ

      nice job indeed!

  • The invisible man

    I’ll tell my wife about it.

  • Why

    Does Nikon follow this pattern before a major release like the car dealers dumping inventory before the new Barchetta hits the street?

  • zzddrr

    the interesting part is that last year on apr 14 Nikon released another plastic crap (aka D5000) which had to be recalled. So we can expect in 7 to 14 days another 12MP beauty from Nikon which most of us will skip. :-)

    But seriously, the problem is that there are absolutely no rumors. Normally 1-2 months ahead of a release there is some noise but this time nothing. I think nikon does not have sensor. (They were all taken by the good nikon employees nikon fired :-) )

  • Jeff

    What happened to the D3s rebate, did they not extend the rebate on that model due to shortages?

    Is Adorama the only dealer offering these extended rebates in the U.S.?

    Adorama charges nearly $200.00 more for the D700 that B&H does, so there goes most of your rebate money back in Adorama’s bank account due to their inflated selling price of the D700. BOO HOO on them, I will just wait, even if it is until 2011 or whenever Sony designs them a new sensor.

    • JJ

      the D3s was available in the rebate program last month, this month is only the D700 and the D300s

  • YouAreCorrect

    I was browsing at BH last night and checking out the Kit of D700 with 70-200 and comparing it to prices of single item. I found out that the $400 rebate is not really a $400 dollar rebate, more like a $200 plus rebate. So if you buy individually you are paying the full price only $200 more for both item than buying it with the rebate program claiming to save you $400..
    A $400 rebate is actually a $200 rebate. So much for the rebate….

    • Jose

      Please click on the suggested price and you will see the rebate, for example nikon d300s with 18-200 VRII US$ 2085.

  • lox

    Why no 14-24/2.8 offer?

  • Karlosak

    Nice chart, I like the color combination :-)

  • Hans

    You can get the D700 + 70-200 + 24-70 combination for 6.040$ at Amazon, which is about 250$ less than at this Adorama. So what is the deal? 5.500 for this combo would be a real deal.

  • Steve

    I also thought that it was more expensive as a kit… but the kit price goes down again when you add it to your cart… Example: E700 with the 16-35 comes up on the combo linked page as $3656.95… (3956.95 less $300) but when you actually add it to your cart it is $3,359.90 so another $300+ bucks off. This happens even when you price everything out seperate… the D700 is $2696.95 normal page, but when you add it to the cart it is $2,399.95. These were all at Adoramma,

    On B&H for example you dont get the D700 price on the first page until you add it to the cart… $2449.95

    Just food for thought, but it seems your best and most accurate pricing comes when you add the items to the cart. Go figure.

  • Bruce

    For Adorama you need to put the items in the cart to see the real package price. The D700 + 24-70mm shows up as $3,839.90 in the cart while it says it is $4,286.95 on the package page. $3,839 is the right number for the individual items (D700 is lower in cart than on the page) less the $300 rebate.

  • Jake

    Given the fact that so many people commenting here don’t realize that the price often goes down when you add items to your cart, I’d guess that Adorama is losing lots of sales. That’s really dumb of Adorama to do their pricing this way, especially since they often put the words “Final Price” in big bold read font on the item page, even though it’s not really the final pirce. How many more people (who don’t post comments here) are using that figure to compare prices and then shop elsewhere? It’s gotta be a lot.

    • Anonymous

      I put the D700/24-70/70-200/SB900 combo in the cart yesterday but waited until today to buy. But the price jumped $800 overnight. The “Final Price” is now the price in the cart. I’ll come back tonight to see if it’ll drop back down again before I pull the trigger.

      • Anonymous

        correction: over $600 jump, not $800

  • Steve

    my real headache here is that I already have the glass, but just need to buy the D700. I’ve been trying to wait for a replacement, but am living the addage “the best pictures are the ones you actually have a camera for” no camera no pics. That said, the rebates are like my wife having a coupon for shoes… She doesnt need them, but “I have a coupon” so she has to buy more. I feel like I have to buy a lens with the camera… but which one… that 16-35 is looking mighty nice. (especially to sell later if need be.)

    • Geoff_K

      I suppose you could purchase the combo and sell the lens. Sort of a pain, however selling nikon glass is usually not difficult as long as you price it fairly.

  • JJ

    Thanks admin, as aways I found information here that is not available anywhere else. For the rebates: Amazon is sold out of D700 and D300s. In order to get the full Adorama rebate, you must add the items to your cart.

  • Jean

    Just wanted to point you misspelled “rebates” in the title…

  • ed nafzger

    nice and now the new lenses please mr nikon 100-500 vr f5,6 tell me this with d3s or d700 with 200-400 mm what is the best i have to make a dissision i still have time for waiting but bring out the goodies

  • evilot

    Adorama must be out of its mind now, the D300s + 24-70G + 70-200G + SB900, it’s $52xx in cart yesterday, now it’s $56xx in cart ! If Amazon.com had all those stuff in stock, even not counting the $100 flash rebate, Amazon.com’s price would still be cheaper than Adorama’s $52xx price. Now basically Adorama eats almost all the instant rebates.

  • Geoff_K

    Come on people, buy these cameras out quickly so Nikon can announce what the replacement camera is. I am thinking they are wanting to nearly wipe out inventory before they announce anything.

    If they do a deeper price cut I may be one of those that helps them reduce inventory, however at current prices I will wait to see what is in the pipeline. ;- )

    Adorama will always price match (unit cost and shipping) to certain competitors – and make every effort to price match to others

    Steve and Jake

    The price will frequently reduce once the item has been placed into the basket due to MAP regulations, which restrict how some prices can be advertised openly. We do it that way because legally we have no choice!

    If anyone has individual queries about the rebates, or needs advice with an order, or after-sales support, you are always most welcome to email me directly:

    Amazon is currently offering (don’t know how long it will last) the D700 for $2394.95. If you want the rebate with a 24-70 2.8 use code: 24701635. I had to wrangle the code out of a phone rep. Free shipping available too.

  • cnd_max

    Did the rebate prices change??
    D300s + 24-70mm + 70-200mm in cart rebate adds to just $428
    D700 + 24-70mm + 70-200mm in cart rebate adds to just $548
    unlike the $700 stated above..
    Those numbers are subtracted from price pre-cart and in cart.
    Am I mistaken?

  • http://www.adorama.com Helen Oster

    It’s confusing, I know, but I think you’ve missed that the rebates have been taken off at the beginning.

    For example:

    http://www.adorama.com/INKD300S247.html

    $5986.95 Regular Price
    – $700.00 Instant Rebate
    Your Final Price $5286.95 After adding to cart: $4,858.90

    http://www.adorama.com/INKD700247F.html

    $7481.95 Regular Price
    – $800.00 Instant Rebate
    Your Final Price $6681.95
    After adding to cart: $6,103.85

    Does that make more sense?

  • wanttheD700

    So does anyone know how we can get B&H to reduce their price (D700 + 24-70 + 70-200)? Currently their cart price is $5883.90 which is $105 higher than the cart price of individual components when you take the $700 discount.

  • JJ

    did you try the adorama link from the post?

    http://www.adorama.com/INKD700247.html?kbid=63773

    add to cart to see final price – $5,788.90

    • wanttheD700

      Yes JJ- however Adorama lists the kit as out of stock, where B&H lists it as in stock. I tried to get them to do a price match, but they wouldn’t budge. Guess I’ll go with Adorama and get 3% Bing cashback as well.
