New low price: grey market Nikon D500 now $1,699

Grey market Nikon D500 DSLR cameras are now selling for $1,699 on eBay. This is a new low price - $100 less from last week's $1,799 listing.

Nikon D500 cameras with US warranty are currently priced at $1,996.95, while a $500 discount is available for the D500 + 16-80mm lens kit.

Nikon USA recently allowed some grey market models to be fixed at third party US repair facilities, but the D500 is still not on the list.

Grey market Nikon D7200 cameras are now priced at $749.

Nikon D3400 to come with an improved “Guide Mode”

A quick update on the upcoming Nikon D3300 camera replacement - the new model will be called D3400 and will have a new 24.2MP sensor, Snapbridge connectivity and an improved "Guide Mode". Expect the official announcement in the next few weeks before the Photokina show in September.

It remains a mystery why Nikon skipped the D5400 and not the D3400 model name.

There could be three different models of the Nikon KeyMission camera

There could be three different types of the Nikon KeyMission camera. One of them will be the "regular" version which we have already seen online. The second one will be a 170° camera and the third will be a 80° model which can be used for chest mounting. I'm still not sure if all three models will be launched simultaneously - my guess is that they will be announced at a later date.

After the Kumamoto earthquakes, the Nikon KeyMission 360 camera was delayed until October, 2016. The US pricing is not yet announced.
