I received several reports that the prices of some Nikon equipment went up in the last few days. Few of the mentioned items are:
- Nikon D300s body only (current prices: B&H $1529.95, Adorama $1599.00, Amazon $1449.00)
- Nikon D700 body only (current prices: B&H 2699.95, Adorama $2599.00, Amazon $2399.95)
- Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VRII lens (current prices: B&H: 2299.00, Adorama 2399.95, Amazon 2119.95)
- Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 lens (current prices: B&H $1799.95, Adorama $1,829.95, Amazon $1,789.00)
Some of the reports came from outside the US. I would not be surprised if most of Nikon products go back to their MSRP. Expect also additional shortages in the next few months for some of the popular models that are produced in Japan.
Update: the new Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G is now in stock at Amazon for $1999 (sold by third party, original price was $1,699.95).
