Strange new $300 price drop on the Nikon D750 camera at Amazon.com

Nikon-D750-camera-deal-at-Amazon
Update: the price is now back to $1,996.95.

The Nikon D750 camera is currently selling for $1,696.95 at Amazon (shipped from and sold by amazon.com). This is $300 off compared to the $1,996.95 price of the D750 at B&H and Adorama. Note that this is a "regular" D750 that comes with US warranty and not a grey market or refurbished model. The listing is either a mistake or a new price drop that will become official next week.

    What’s strange here in Germany: No big price drop, but the D750 is currently not available at Amazon…

    • Oskar Jamtander
    • Bob Thane

      Points to a refresh coming at Photokina, but I honestly don’t think it needs it yet… Weird.

      • Umano Teodori

        Not sure what will happen, but I doubt nikon can beat the pixel count of 5ds with good performance and reliability and at same time at photokina beats the new 5d mk4 as an all around camera.

        If the 5d mk4 will have the same sensor technology and af from 1ds mk2 it will be a great camera, but an updated d750, which already has imho the best sensor I’ve ever tried, could be a pain in the neck for canon.

        I think if nikon can show us at photokina a new d750 with 30-32 mpix bsi sensor with d5 af and chips, new d810 with 42 mpix and a 60mpix d5x in 12-14 months, canon will be in deep shit.

        • Basically a full frame D500? 🙂 The D500’s updated controls/ergonomics are as big as the updates to its AF.

          • Umano Teodori

            I didn’t know that, I have never tried the d500, I am very happy for nikon to hear that but still I think it hasn’t fast and full preset recall mode like canon has.

            The d500 has a pro body and 10 fps it’s for a different target I think

        • TylerChappell

          Nikon doesn’t even need to up the pixel count on the D750 in order to beat the 5D4. The 5D4 will be substantially more expensive than a D750 refresh, which would probably out-perform the 5D4 in some areas. Whereas a D810 successor would be almost equally priced to the 5D4 and smack it into oblivion.

          • Bob Cozzi

            I would hope they finally do Dual Expeed 5 CPUs in a D8xx camera.

          • Umano Teodori

            yep totally agree real needs and mkting needs are different, I am sure that for what matter to me, I am a digi operator and retoucher, the d750 will be better than the 5dmk4 like the d810 is better to me than 5ds or if af performance is not an issue d800 for me still has the best colors. But those are personal preferences or at most shared in a small group of ppl.

            For example I won’t buy a d750 because it has not the 5:4 ratio, 99% of magazines are closer to 5:4, but I still think it’s the best camera on the market, you can do everything with it, it is super fun to use and every shot can be the good one. We can push the file a lot if we get wrong exposure, af is incredibly reliable, almost no moire ever, but like every product it has some flaws to fit better in the price segment or to not overcomes other cameras.

            I would love to have a 7-8 fps d810 successor with 48 mpix with crazy dr and low noise but d5, d500, d750 sales will drop, with 1/8000 on d750 maybe they have to change the shutter, more expensive, or make the camera bigger, dunno just to say some possibilities

            For them It is very hard to balance and for us to guess, but I think they got it right with the actual ff product line after some mistakes. I hope they won’t run for mpix war unless they have a well balanced and mature product

            • Stefano 6884

              well, in either case… I will be saving for the new 750 OR rejoice for the probable price drop on the old ones (second hand or new). I think the moment of my switching to Nikon is near…

      • Stuart Crowther

        D760 with D5 af I need it : )

        • Andrew

          And the Anti-Aliasing Filter, be gone 😉

          • Stuart Crowther

            I forgot about the AA, you’re right, but I can live with 1/4000 sec shutter, 1/200 flash sinc, the boost I would like is the buffer and write speed currently 12 shots at full raw, 42 if you’re happy with medium res JPEG’s…lol.

          • waterengineer

            Source for the shutter statement. Thanks.

            I agree 1/8000 shutter speed would be nice.

            • KnightPhoto

              Yes that shutter statement came from Nikon at time of release. Could they work around 1/4000 limitation now – probably…

            • Stuart Crowther

              Probably yes, will they, maybe not. Can’t make the D760 specs to high as to get people to hand over the extra $1000 + for the
              D850.

            • Andrew

              I searched my bookmark for the reference regarding the D750’s slim design being a priority and thus impeding Nikon’s ability to implement a 1/8000 shutter mechanism in the camera; but came up short on my search.

              But I did found corroborating information online that “according to [Nikon’s] design team the 1/8000 shutter [which] is bigger motor and much bigger breaks did not fit into very slim D750 body.” The information I provided on this issue came directly from an interview with a Nikon manager and not from a third party source as quoted above. I am 100% certain of my facts. Since the reason has been officially disclosed by Nikon, then I presume that the information could be reasonably obtained from a high-enough source at Nikon. Any, hope that helps.

          • akkual

            D750 shutter mechanism is D750’s only bad side (slow and all the issues, especially the 1st shot mirror lock up + err annoyance). I wouldn’t surprise, if they make D760 update like they did for D600 with D610. Would make sense to push fps higher, larger buffer, and add 4K video in the same time, as D750 was “designed for action”.

            • Stuart Crowther

              Designed for action ? Your going to miss all the action while it empty’s the buffer on to the card.
              No the D750 was designed for (quoting Nikon marketing) Aspiring Photographers, aka wannabe Pro’s who’s pockets weren’t deep enough for D810
              ; )

            • Andrew

              Please no 😉 The D610 is not much of an upgrade above the D600. The only reason why it has stayed on the market this long is because it is sold at a great price. It is a competent camera all right, but it is not a head turner.

              The D750 is a strategic camera for Nikon and it no doubt is made to appeal to wedding and event photographers, and as such, I expect it to get a major upgrade in the next D760 version. The D500 has raised our expectations considerably and I am certain that its influence will affect the D750, D810, and Df replacements.

        • Kiboko

          In D500 like body. Same grip, no flash, same button setup!

          • Stuart Crowther

            Yes, it used to be called a D700 😉

        • KnightPhoto

          I do wonder if this go round Nikon can offer D5 autofocus in a D760? I’m thinking not due to need to differentiate D820, D5, and D500 from the rest of the lineup.

          • Stuart Crowther

            The D4s af was the major feature of the D750 that attracted alot of people to buy it I think. If the D620 gets the expected upgrades the D620 becomes a D750, if both D620 and D760 are to exist in the next gen line up the D760 needs features to differentiate it from the D620 and get people to pay the extra $600+, there are only two main options higher mega pix and or better af. Remember the D750 had a fair few handicaps compared to the rest of the FX line up, Max shutter, flash sinc and buffer and it was a prosumer body not a true pro body. If a new D620 is announced next month the af spec will tell part of the story the other part would be the D850 mega pix count, D760 needs to be somewhere inbetween.

        • Lo Rivera Castillo

          They’re not going to do this. The only reason they packed the D500 with these features is because it is an APS-C sensor. They won’t do that with a 35mm sensor camera. It will eat D810 sales.

      • Scott Cove

        If it does come (and I’m hoping it does, as my D750 is due for a refresh), it is likely to distance themselves from the shutter recall, as they did with the oil issue of the 600. I know there’s still a heap of people freaking out about the shutters on their 750’s, and plenty not happy about torn curtains on their bodies… I know a number of people who are holding off on pulling the trigger because of it too.

        In some ways, it makes sense for Nikon to do a minor refresh, like they did with the 600/610, just to put people at ease…

        • So, how many is a “number of people”? What about a “heap”? Is that more than “plenty” or less? I’ve rented a D750 four times and nothing seemed amiss. I know six local commercial photographers who own D750s and, if they’ve had problems, I haven’t heard about it. That doesn’t mean they haven’t, but usually people are pretty vocal about quality and performance issues. I’m not trying to be an asshole, I just wonder how many people are really having a problem because honestly, everyone I’ve talked to who owns a D750 or has used one has nothing but great things to say about it. I’m curious about all the talk I hear related to quality issues for various Nikon cameras. I’m shooting a Df for a couple years and haven’t had a single issue. I’ve used a D300s for six years now and never had to send it in for anything. I’m not all that prolific, but I shoot about 3,000 to 4,000 images per month between work and personal stuff. The way people talk on here you’d think I’d have to send my cameras in for repair twice a month.

          • Scott Cove

            We could quibble about the exact numbers of colloquial collective nouns all day, but I won’t. As stated in my reply, I own a D750 and am very happy with it. Nothing has been amiss in the 80k or so actuations I have put on it so far in just under 2 years of service. But I am one of the lucky ones to buy one without the affected shutters.

            I am a member of a number of user groups, and it seems almost weekly that someone comes on there and posts something lamenting about their shutter issues. In fact, just for giggles, I did a search on just one of the user groups, and in the past month alone there have been at least 12 people who were very vocal about their shutter issues, and a cacophony of “me too”‘s in the comment sections. So they are being vocal, trust me.

            And to be fair, do you think a rental house would rent you a camera with a broken shutter? Of course they wouldn’t! And most commercial photographers are (usually) well on top of any service advisories that come out, so you likely wouldn’t hear them whining either. Nor do you hear me whining. And yes, I agree with you that for the most part, Nikon’s are very reliable. In fact, from 2008 onwards, there have only been 16 Service advisories put out by Nikon Australia, and none of your listed bodies are on there. In fact, the only DSLR’s on that list are the D5000, D2H, D70 (all electrical issues causing total failure), the D600 (oil), D810 (hot pixels in Long Exposures in 1.2x mode), and D750 twice (PDAF flare (which mine does suffer from) and Shutter recall)…

            So people do have *some* cause for concern, in that three of the later FX bodies have had quality control issues of some sort, and this is why, I believe, people are discussing “issues” so vocally. It is because this is a somewhat novel situation. And I think the reason Nikon (may) be reactionary to it, is because they do not wish to damage their reputation further.

            • akkual

              Could you address these forums? I haven’t heard such issues. Currently, there seems to be two issues with D750 shutter: 1. the mirror lockup + err -text on first high fps shot with fast shutter speed (and thereafter reoccurs more often), 2. shutter can some cases shade the shot, seems to be connected with 1. issue, as I sometimes get shaded shot when that mirror lock up happens (I have not yet sent it for the recall). I haven’t heard any other significant problems with them. D610 has had a higher rate of shutter replacements due to permanent malfunction than the 1/8000s pro shutter ones, so it wouldn’t be surprise if D750 falls into same category. Luckly, the D750 and D610 shutter is cheaper to replace than D4 or D810 shutter (250-300$ vs. 400-500$).

            • TylerChappell

              My first D750 had the flare issue, but I took a couple thousand photos before it first showed up. Sent it into Nikon to have it serviced. When I received it back, it was missing a screw on the bottom AND had another photographer’s copyright info in it. Apparently the person working on our cameras swapped the memory chips, because our shutter counts were also reversed from when we sent them in.
              For their screwup, Nikon sent me a brand new D750, and thus I also ended up with a new battery, charger, strap, etc. It made me super glad I had the flare issue in the end. 😀
              But my new one is also supposedly affected by the shutter recall but it hasn’t given me a single issue yet so I’ll continue to wait to send it in after I’ve used it a lot more to get a brand new shutter.

            • Scott Cove

              Mine still has the flare issue, but it’s only with my 50mm and with the light at a certain point in the frame that it shows up, so I’ve just put up with it. It was good of Nikon to replace it for you, though.

          • silmasan

            Maybe Nikon learned that D610 was an effective move for them to move forward, and to regain 100% costumers’ trust in what’s essentially the same body. And maybe now they decided to take the same move again.

            Focusing on the present instead of lingering on the past–I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.

            This is just one possibility though, and the proof will be in how similar the D750 replacement is to the D750 (_if_ that’s really the case).

            • Scott Cove

              My thoughts exactly.

        • so strange, I know 15-20 people (professionally) that shoot with a D750, never had a problem, and most of them since the body was released, ….. bizarre

          • Scott Cove

            That’s the point I’m making Christopher. My body is one of them that is fine, and I bought it two weeks post release. I’m really quite happy with mine, but I know quite a few that are not.

    • Bob Cozzi

      It (the D750) could use a touch-screen and the Expeed 5 processor (the D3400 is only an Expeed 4, hence the 4 in 3400 (guessing)). So D755 may be the next tweak.

  • JJ168

    About time to hear something about new FF from nikon. In Canon world we already see a long list of spec and leak photos.
    Exciting time ahead.

    • Visar Sulejmani

      As a former D800 and now D750 owner I would really love to see a D810 successor with Sony’s 42MP Sensor, ISO50, Focus Peaking and 4K without Crop. That would be an instant buy for me. But I would also love to see a FF Mirror-less from Nikon.

      • As a former D800e user, D810 tester/reviewer, and current D750 owner, what I’d love to see is both a new D810, (D500 body styling improvements, A7R II sensor with Nikon superiority added, etc.) …AND, also the D750’s lightweight body styling, but with a 36 or 42 MP chip added.

        That 2nd camera would make an awesome landscape and nightscape camera for backpacking / adventure travel, compared to the pointlessly heavier D810 body. “Pointlessly” being highly subjective, of course, but I shoot both adventure landscapes and 10-15+ hour wedding days on my D750 just fine, I don’t miss any of the “pro” advantages that the D800e / D700 once offered me.

        • Visar Sulejmani

          I agree on the weight. Carrying it around for a normal shoot isn’t an issue. But I was travelling through Spain and Portugal for three weeks, with the D800 on a BlackRapid R-Strap, from 9am to as long as my legs could carry me. It would be nice if the body would be a little lighter. I consider the D500 like body styling improvements as a given.

          I’m just a bit sad that the 5DIV didn’t really do much in terms of Video Specs, which means that Nikon doesn’t really have to either. At least Peaking would be nice, not only for video but also for live view focusing on the tripod, etc.

          In general though, I’m highly satisfied with my Nikon experiences over the last 3,5 years. A D850 with my mentioned upgrades would make it even better.

          • I’d love to have focus peaking in “stills mode” LV as well, and also when zooming in to 100% during LV like Sony offers. Whenever I use a Sony, that’s a fantastic tool for focusing landscapes.

            I’m happy to lug a D8xx series body around if the job requires it, but every ounce I add is an ounce I can’t bring in a 2nd or 3rd (or 4th!) camera, as a timelapse photographer.

            Unfortunately, I don’t have high hopes for such a body with such a sensor. Heck, even if Nikon made a Df mk2, they’d be more likely to use the D5 sensor I feel, even though it’d compete very nicely with the likes of the Sony RX1Rii, which is a 42 MP camera.

            But, I can also hope for a lighter weight Pentax full-frame camera, too. A lightweight K-1 would probably also have the advantage of keeping pro-grade weather sealing, too. Or even, a Pentax K-1 mirrorless option, for increased weight savings. That’d be a sweet camera, and I bet the price would be incredible too.

            • akkual

              What do you actually mean by focus peaking? Even in my D700 you can “focus peak” in LV just by pressing the OK button in the middle of the joystick. It will then zoom to the place your focus point is at 100% level. What it does not provide (like A7 provides) is those marching ants of in-focus area during LV focus peaking.

            • I think the definition of Focus Peaking is in question here. Indeed, I’m talking about the marching ants. Nikon does not have them yet, even though they’ve already begun implementing “zebra stripes” for video mode live view…

              Usually, what “focus peaking” refers to is the marching ants themselves, not just being able to zoom in to 100%. Unless you’re thinking of “focus peeking” lol? 😉

          • Wolf33d

            To be honest I do not care about peaking because the canon Dual AF is so good that you can finally use AF in video with better results especially when traveling on a fast configuration (no follow focus module…).
            So I would say it is a given the D820 will have 4K but with terrible video AF. Also the huge crop from the D5 is not welcomed.
            I wish we could basically have the A7R2 specs in a Nikon meaning more DR with a cleaner low iso, better ergonomics and so on

            • Visar Sulejmani

              Yes, the A7R2 is a pretty incredible All-round camera and Canon’s Dual Pixel AF is amazing. I was surprised how good it works in the 80D, even with 3rd party lenses. I just hope that Nikon implements the phase detection AF Features of the 42mp sensor well into the Live View, assuming they use the 42mp sony sensor.

          • Aldo

            But but people want metal bricks that last forever.

            • Carleton Foxx

              Yes!!! I prefer to skip every other update and keep my old camera for backup. If I had my druthers I would want a d810 and a d830.

      • Wolf33d

        Sale here. Instant buy if Sony 42mp sensor with ISO50 clean like the D810, 4K…
        I need D810 stills quality but with good 4K video too.
        Or in a mirorless body even better

      • Eric Calabros

        Nikon wont use that sensor. Its too boring for having something that Sony delivered long ago. They don’t want their flagship seems boring. Sides, Canon has 50mp body, Nikon can’t afford to lag behind. So expect something in that range. Maybe 54.

        • Visar Sulejmani

          Nikon has used Sony sensors for quite a while, not really caring whether or not Sony uses it (see D810 to A7R). On top of it all, Sony’s 42mp BSI Sensor is without a doubt the best performing FF Sensor on the Market right now. So, unless Nikon is willing to manufacture one themselves or hires Sony to manufacture an entirely new Sensor, the 42mp Sensor seems like the best bet. And considering that a high MP Sensor would be used for Landscape a high amount of DR would be a big plus, and neither Nikon’s nor Canon’s sensor come close to the D810’s 14.8 Stops of Latitude (acc. DXO-Mark) at base ISO.
          And I’m certain most people would takenthe extra latitude over the barely recognisable 8MP to the 5DS.

          • Eric Calabros

            Nikon got the 36mp sensor before Sony itself. They dont want to play “me too” in D8xx series.

            • Visar Sulejmani

              they did, but they didn’t run off to something different after sony used it in the A7R.
              Either way, we’ll se soon enough.

          • KnightPhoto

            Maybe 42mp sensor in D760 and 54mp in D820?

            • Visar Sulejmani

              I don’t think they would do that as the difference between 42 & 54mp is minimal. I believe that a D750 successor would be more like a 5DIV competitor and feature a 30MP Sensor, while the D810 successor would feature a Sensor to compete with the 5DSR.

            • TylerChappell

              The D750 is substantially cheaper than even the old 5D3 (and substantially better performing). To compete with the D750 or a D750 upgrade, Canon would actually have to release a new 6D2. The D810 and D810 successor are what will compete with the likes of the 5D4 as well as the 5Ds/5Dsr.

          • manattan

            I agree and think that Nikon’s best bet right now is the 42MP BSI sensor from Sony. Its a great sensor on the a7r2, but the only downside is that Sony can innovate and put something even better in the a7r3 trumping a new Nikon release. Canon has more MP right now, but I agree with you that it is the quality of the MP that is important as well.

            I think folks will be surprised that the cost of the 810 replacement is going to be significantly more expensive (at least a $1000 more than the 810) and greater than the $4000 Canon is rumored to be charging for the mark 4. Just like the 7200 versus 500 being double in price, I think the 810 vs. 810-replacement is going to give folks some pause on price.

          • VanHoff

            I agree, but what Nikon really needs to offer from that juicy Sony’s 42mp BSI Sensor, is the SAME video capabilities of the A7rII, it is a real SHAME that Nikon still lags behind nowadays of what the other brands are giving to the users in that regard.

      • JJ168

        As current owner of d810 and previously owned or used d700, d800, d7xxx and d6xx type of bodies. I really wish for nikon to offer both bodies (d810 and d750 type of bodies) without crippling the control (say no AF-On button on d750, etc), give us option to choose high MP n DR sensor or lower MP yet high DR (like d750) faster fps sensor (beat canon 5d4 with 7.5 or 8fps), give us option to choose fixed lcd screen or tilt, and same type dual card options. Add the latest AF found in d5, 4k video, improved snapbridge. Price them higher than the original d800 at release yet lower than the canon’s for the extra cost of providing all these options…Whoa la, i bet they will sale like crazy.

        • Visar Sulejmani

          Yes, I really do miss the AF-On Button on the D750. Had to re-map it onto the AE-L. And the eye piece of the D800/D810 is also a lot more comfortable to me.

          • JJ168

            Oh yes, missed the round eye piece and the builtin shutter curtain (whatever you called it, useful for long exposure work).

            • Visar Sulejmani

              Definitely. One can see what Nikon did to differentiate the D750 and the D810 beyond the resolution. I really love the D750, but personally I do prefer the D8xx series, even though it’s bulkier. As long as it has the same grip design as the D750 and the AF of the D5, the D810 successor will probably be my next camera.
              Especially if Irix finally releases the 15mm f2.4.

      • Ritvar Krum

        1 qestion – why Mirror-less? what advantages you do wait from it (over dlsr)? by this time (when comparable lenses with comparable f-stops came out) we have seen sony’s size “advantage”

        • Visar Sulejmani

          I wouldn’t mind using a DSLR forever. And the size never bothered me, quite the opposite. I would consider a Camera smaller than a D750 to be to small. And I really love the OVF because it has no processing lag like an EVF. But, as far as I know, the size of the AF Area is limited due to the OVF and Mirror Unit. A Mirrorless camera can have the AF Points over the entire Sensor (see A7RII). Of course you can focus and recompose, but there is always a chance that you also change the focal plane by moving and don’t have proper focus anymore. And as much as I personally love the OVF and instantaneous nature of it, I also use manual lenses a lot, like Zeiss and adapted Mamiya RZ. An OVF with proper Focus Peaking would be amazing for those situations, which are becoming more and more for me.
          As for battery life, I wouldn’t mind if Nikon would make the camera a little taller and added a very large battery at the bottom, like in the D5. As the battery life in the A7 series is ridiculously low with just one battery. I would never use one of those cameras without it’s battery grip.

          But those are just my reason for pro, these cameras have a lot of drawbacks too. There sadly is no perfect System, yet.
          One thing is clear though. For ME, Nikon’s Color Science and their camera ergonomics are easily the best in the business, which is the reason why I’ll likely never jumpt ship to Sony, even though they are always half a generation in front with features. Especially the built in IBIS. Having that for my manual glass, especially for my Mamiya 110mm 2.8 would be incredible. But I doubt that Nikon will ever include something like it, which is a shame really. But more features don’t necessarily make the better camera.

          But a camera with the A7RII features, Nikon’s Colour Science and Ergonomics, ISO 50 and 4K60P in HEVC would be my ultimate camera. I would gladly pay 1,5xt more to buy one of those. But that’s just me.

        • KnightPhoto

          Mirrorless can also be shot completely silently. I’d like that feature.

          However, if you gave me the ability to pop an EVF in the hotshoe of my DSLR, I’d prefer that for occasions when I need silent shooting. And I’d use OVF the rest of the time on the same camera. Course we need on sensor PDAF too, although it can be done using CDAF like on the D4, D4S, and D5.

      • KnightPhoto

        4K without crop is too much to ask from an FX sensor at this time (no one is offering that on a DSLR, just tiny phone etc. sensors)

        • Visar Sulejmani

          The A7SII and, more importantly, the A7RII (which features what I and many else assume will share the sensor with the D810 successor) can both do 4K without crop. One of the Reasons why they went with 42MP instead of 50MP was because 42MP means that you can perfectly line-skip horizintally & vertically from an 8K (42MP 3:2 Sensor) Sensor to a 4K video @ Full Frame 16:9.
          So, it’s not only possible and is being applied since 2015, but the Sensor was even built with that in mind.

          • KnightPhoto

            Yes I see that (Sony can do full frame 4k) after I wrote it. Pretty impressive on Sony’s part.

      • David Peterson

        > Focus Peaking and 4K without Crop

        Those two would be huge! Hope all Nikons could get this.

    • Hermann Kloeti

      Been faithful to Nikon for more than 40 years and I still get quite excited when I think of, or read about “things to come”. At 77 though I am looking for features that make life (often close to the ground) easier for me creaky bones: Swivel monitor, built-in GPS, built-in receiver for remote control. My wallet fortunately has already given me the green light for a 9xx model or whatever it’s going to be.

  • silmasan

    D610-equivalent to D750 post recalls?

    • Scott Cove

      That’s what I’m thinking.

  • Eric Calabros

    You know what could be epic release? a FF body that does what 5Dmark4 is going to do, but with $1000 lower price! a 24mp, 8fps, 4k camera.

    • Bob Thane

      It wouldn’t surprise me. Since at least 2012 Nikon’s been delivering more camera for less money through most of their lineup. The D750 beat the 5DIII, so I’d guess that the D760 or whatever will at least tie the 5DIV.

    • Shutterbug

      They already did that with the D610/D750 and the 5DM3. I wouldn’t be too surprised at all if they did exactly as you describe. The 5DM4 is looking pretty weak considering it has to last the next 4 years and is already lacking key features.

  • CMadsen

    I saw the D750 at about the same price at Geneva airport about 2 weeks ago …

    • Jeffry De Meyer

      Switzerland does grey market EU countries do not as here you have a mandatory 2 year guaranty on consumer goods.

      • Samuel Monot

        I live in Geneva, Switzerland and Just as CMadsen wrote, the 750 is found aroud 1670.- Swiss franc ( 1700.- usd) with 3 years guaranty

        • Jeffry De Meyer

          Oh, that is even better.
          From prices I have seen it would probably be cheaper to do a city trip somewhere in Switzerland, buy a new camera and still save money over buying it somewhere in the EU

          • Nikita

            maybe, but Switzerland is outrageously expensive. Makes Paris look like a bargain.

            • tomherren

              What are the grounds for your imprudent assertion? D750 sells currently for CHF 1’670.– with 3 years Nikon Swiss Warranty. I bought mine for CHF 1’580.– a year ago

            • Nikita

              the guy above said a city trip might make it worth it, I’m thinking hotels, restaurants, etc as a tourist, not CE pricing.

  • Politics_Nerd

    Waiting for $1400 D500.

  • br0xibear

    The D750 was announced in Sept 2014, Nikon usually do a 2 year refresh so maybe that’s what it is…a few tweaks, an XQD slot and 4K ?
    It would be interesting if they surprised people, like they did with the D500, and announced a D900 (D500 body with D5 sensor).

    • Eric Calabros

      XQD in a semi-pro body?

      • Spy Black

        I sincerely hope not.

        • David Peterson

          If an XQD slot means they can do high quality 10bit 4K 60fps then having XQD would be full on awesome! But doubt we’ll be seeing 10bit internal any time soon 🙁

      • br0xibear

        Same as the D500, 1 XQD slot and 1 SD slot.
        On the Nikon USA site the D750 is in the “Enthusiast” section, the Nikon Europe site has it under “Pro”…I don’t think it’s relevent, XQD is just a newer and faster storage method, and if that’s what they’re going with then 2 slots like the D500 make sense.

    • VanHoff

      More than just plain 4k what many people will appreciate will be having the option of decent video worflow from the video files produced by Nikon Dslrs, instead of that crappy 4:2:0 color sampling what we need is 4:4:4, I mean, Sony does that, Canon offers 4:2:2 and I’m 400% sure that fact alone will change the Nikon Dslrs sales worldwide.

  • Aldo

    I’d love better white balance on the d750.. and not so much better ISO but better color rendition at ISO 1000-1600.. a sharper sensor would be a plus but meh.

    • Shutterbug

      Sensors have very little to do with image sharpness 🙂

      • Aldo

        I guess they can figure out a way to get rid of the OLPF… everyone likes rainbows now days anyway.

  • Photobug

    My bet is that the D755 will be announced in January. Peter, any rumors on a replacement? This is such a great camera the new lower price will draw lots of interest…of course, other dealers will need to match the Amazon price..

    • no rumors for a new D750 so far, otherwise I would have published them online

      • Lol.

      • silmasan

        I just checked and it seemed that the rumor of D610 started in very late August 2013 (your post was dated Aug 29), and the camera was officially released in October 8, 2013.

        Also D500 was pretty much kept under the radar.

        • Shutterbug

          D500 was not really under the radar. There were rumors in September, November, and December before it’s release and there was little doubt it was coming. Especially with the D5 being released, it gave them the opportunity to repeat the success they had in 2007 with the D3/D300. I think a lot of people just ignored it because of D400 rumors from the years past.

          • correct, there were D500 rumors reported on NikonRumors but nobody (including myself) took them seriously because they have been going on for almost 10 years

  • yepits me

    Not no more

  • Jeffry De Meyer

    Would be nice if it meant nikon saw that raising prices was going to bite them in the ass in the long run and is reversing that decision.

  • Spy Black

    If it’s $1700 for factory warranty (which apparently doesn’t mean much anymore), I wonder what a gray market will go for.

  • Eleazar Liu

    My guess is that the new d620 will most likely match the specs of the d750. And the d760 will be refreshed next year Q1 depends on the quality of the new 6d2. So Nikon will always have a cheap and good entry FX and a similar price point of canon’s fx but more features.

  • Wade Marks

    My guess: Nikon can’t refresh the D610 without making it too much like D750. So need to refresh D750 first.

    Maybe even call it a D750s. Same sensor as D750 which is already great. Add in the AF of D5/D500. Better ergonomics borrowed from D500. 7 or 8 fps. Add in 4K. Sell for $2500 US.

    This would be very competitive with the forthcoming Canon 5D mark 4 for a significant amount less.

    • Nikon always, or most of the times, first refreshes the cheaper model and then the more expensive model.

      • Wade Marks

        You are correct as always. But my thinking is that this time Nikon is boxed in with the D610 replacement.

        Almost for sure it would get the 51 pt AF plus some tweaks. Maybe even 4K. If so then that makes it too competitive with the D750 at a lower price point.

        So Nikon has to update the D750 first. Plus refreshing the D750 allows it to steal a bit of Canon’s thunder with their new 5D mk 4.

        At this new lower price point Nikon could even keep the D750 as their entry level FF and get rid of the D6xx series. I don’t think they would do that but that is a heck of a price for the D750.

        • Stuart Crowther

          You maybe correct that Nikon is boxed in, a D620 with 51p af, deep grip, flip screen, and snap bridge = D750.

          • Spy Black

            One way or another, if Nikon keeps spearheading economical and practical FF bodies, I don’t care what else they do. 😉

            • Stuart Crowther

              Anyway we are probably getting hyped for nothing, Nikon probably end up releasing a D620 with a weak pop up flash and no sensor cleaning. : )

            • Zenettii

              Wonder if they might skip on the extra-oil feature this time round.

        • Oh I don’t know… taking cues from the D3400 “upgrade” the D620 might just get an improved battery, loose the image sensor cleaning function, an improved guide mode, snap bridge connectivity, new radio flash system, and oh heck, let’s just improve the weight of the D620 by taking out the screw drive motor, crippling it’s use with old lenses. Raise the price by a few hundred, and there’s your “update”.

          That… seems to be more inline with how Nikon is upgrading things these days. I could see the D750 “as is” getting a new “Df-like” body, and being called the “100th Anniversary” camera… which might be shown in Sept., with 2017 availability… which might be why they’re trying to sell a few more now. Dump stock, get some operating cash, limit supply, that sort of thing.

      • Zenettii

        So is the D5 the “last” of the upgrades and then they started again at the bottom with the D3400? Or was the D5 and D500 the first of the upgrade train which then ‘filters’ the new tech down.

        • It’s hard to determine a pattern with Nikon – basically everything goes.

          • vousplaisentezouquoi

            There is a little contradiction between your first comment and this one 😉
            ( always, or most of the times / hard to determine…everything goes)

  • Verco

    Have we thought that the D750 was the 2 year upgrade to the D600. And now the next camera is the next 2 year update for both of them

    • Zenettii

      I thought D750 and D6xx are separate lines.

    • Captain Megaton

      It wasn’t but there is merit to the notion that the D6x0 and D750 could be consolidated, or the D6x0 line simply retired.

  • Ritvar Krum

    Canon will sell its new d750 eqvivalent for close to 4000$ soon… I bet nikon thinks: “damn – look a casual FF dlsr sells for 4000$! Can we do a “d3400″-type of upgrade to our d750 and sell it for 3000$??? Then the new d760 – it will have the Snapbride, for gods sake, it must be worth a extra grand right?”

    • Max

      …and it will have no shutter lock up and mic jack.

    • Shutterbug

      History would suggest Nikon doesn’t think like that. The D600/D610 and D750 were all priced way below the 5DM3, with the D600/D610 matching it or beating it in many areas for far less money, and the D750 being a very noticeable step up for almost ~$1000 less. Canon uses a single body to cover a large price range and only updates it once every 4 years, they have no choice but to price it sky high and leave it there.

  • Alex Ionas

    Any word on a 24-120 E f4 update? Am I the only one that thinks that the D760 and/or D820 will be launched with this lens being updated? It is a great all-round lens for these cameras but higher resolutions might need a sharper version and taking in consideration that Nikon is in the process of E updating it’s line (see 24-70 2.8 E Vr close to D5) this seems only natural.

    • Bryan Szucs

      Alex I would love to see the 24-120 f/4 updated! The current version is nice and all but a new one would be great:)

    • TylerChappell

      I too would love to see a new 24-120 f/4. I decided not to get it with my D750 because at the time I already had my 20, 28, 50, and 85 f/1.8G primes. But I later purchased the 16-35 f/4 (got it for a steal brand new for just $630 at Best Buy) and the 70-200 f/4, followed by the 200-500 f/5.6E.

  • DafOwen

    Amazon UK prices will fluctuate sporadically with no obvious reason – once bought a Sigma 70-200 for almost half price!
    D750 not for sale on Amazon UK
    Mind you – neither is the D810
    I’ve noticed they rarely sell higher end DSLRs these days – since the D800 price had many wobles.

    • KnightPhoto

      D810 has been on sale in Canada $300 off recently…

      • TwoStrayCats

        Now THAT is interesting… with Photokina right around the corner…

  • Tom Zenith Darlington

    Price is back up to $1996.95 as of 10:30 AM EST !!! Probably a mistake that took them about 60 hours to find. I ordered one at the reduced price. Delivery on Wednesday !!!

    • Yep, the price went up and as far as I know from previous cases, Amazon will honor the low price. Maybe this was some kind of a strange deal, I’ve seen Amazon do something similar with Nikon prices in the past as well.

      • Spy Black

        It was probably just a typo. The 6 is right below the 9 on the numpad.

  • Lo Rivera Castillo

    Looks like it was mistake, as of 08/21/2016, it is listed at $1,996 again. Either that or it was a one day deal.

  • TO-DOUG

    Speaking of things Amazonian, I was looking for a deal on the Nikon 35mm f/1.8G ED full-frame lens. Nikon Canada list price is C$700. Price at major camera store is C$670. Price at Amazon.ca is C$590. However, price in Amazon.ca Warehouse Deals for a “used-very good” lens was C$432. It was described as “Item is in original packaging, but packaging has damage. Small (less than 1/4″ x 1/4″) cosmetic imperfection on front of item.” I ordered it thinking that I could always return it if that “cosmetic imperfection” was an actual scratch on the lens. It arrived the next day, and I cautiously examined it. Yes, the gold Nikon box had a small cut on it; big deal. The lens has NO visible imperfections, and it is very sharp. And… it came with a one year Nikon Worldwide Service Warranty!

    • Max

      You must go shoot some nice night street scenery with that and show us a picture.

    • TylerChappell

      I’ve bought a couple things from Amazon’s “warehouse deals” and each time the items were like brand new, despite the small supposed “imperfections” they list to describe it that I couldn’t even find upon inspection. Makes me think they are instead describing very small damage on the packaging rather than the item itself. Amazon’s warehouse deals tend to be a great and solid bet!

  • TwoStrayCats

    Now, if only they’ll goof and put up a Leica SL for $1,996.95. I’m ready!!!

  • Haha, of course! 🙂 I totally forgot it had the ‘pro-level’ mode dial. OK, D500 shell but with a full crame sensor and cut back on the FPS, buffer etc to bring the price down 🙂

  • Bart Postma

    What about the D7300? Any expectations on that? Personally I think CES 2017 or in the month or 2 after that.

    Have a D7000 now looking to upgrade. D7200 is quite a significant update but that got released March 2015, while D7100 was Feb 2013. Cycle looks like just 2y now then!

    Wonder what specs that would get…. Would the 153 point AF possibly be in there ?!

  • Aaron Pepelis

    D760 with D5 guts and D500 social and I would buy now.
