Nikon USA just raised the prices for some of their refurbished DSLR cameras (I am not sure about lenses). Some examples:
- Nikon D3s refurbished price went up from $4,159.96 to $4,679.96 (new D3s costs $5,199.95)
- Nikon D3x refurbished price went up from $6,399,96 to $7,199.96 (new D3x costs $7,999.00)
- Nikon D700 refurbished price went up from $2,150 to $2,429.96 (new D700 costs $2,699.95)

Lately I have not seen a lot of refurbished pro level equipment at B&H and Adorama. Right now B&H has a refurbished Nikon 24mm f/1.4 lens for $1,839.95 (new 24/1.4 costs $1,999).
