    Seems like they’re tryin to get rid of the D700’s..

    FIRST! =D

    • The invisible man

      Why ? I don’t understand what you mean.

    • and the D300s

  • Rocking Kenwell

    How long before someone posts the prices add up to more than the rebates?

    It happens EVERY single time. Every. In a world of uncertainties, you can count on this one every single time! 🙂

      In cart price is $3,110 abouts at B&H.
      That breaks down to roughly:

      $2,010 – D700 body,
      $1,100 – 28-300mmVR lens.

      Considering that the D700 currently sells for about $2,350 — that’s a good bit of savings. The D7K (D7000) is $1,200 and the D300s is $1,460.

      So you can save $350 bucks off the D700 and get FX quality for $550 more than the nearest DX. Its a pretty good opportunity if anyone is thinking of switching to FX. Remember, the D700 replacement is going to be a LOT more expensive than this sales price. If you want a new D700 FX + all-ranges FX lens, this is your chance.

        i do agree! here in england d700 costs about £1700, i will wait a few months more and i will get one! or d400 if it will be “cheap full-frame” for masses:)

  • broxibear

    If you’re buying from Amazon you might want to read this statement about advertised prices…

    The advertised price isn’t always what you pay ?

  • Its pretty remarkable how long these rebates have been going on.
    They must been doing well with them. We’ll see when the next generation cameras (D4, D800) come out if the rebates continue. For the pro. the lenses on the rebate list is probably not the ones of interest.

    28-300 best thing since sliced bread? Why would anyone buy a 28-300 with a DX lense. I can see bunding with the FX. The fact they are bundling with 28-300 versus 24-120 says something doesn’t it 😉

  • chuck

    Clearly D300s is old and going to be obsolete by D400. Not very clear to me that D700 is going to get replaced. D4 and D400 is coming next year. With D3100 and D7000 this year I really doubt a D700 successor next year. Maybe a D700+ to add video if anything. Doubt Nikon will cut the D3s sesnor into the D700s.

  • Eric

    Is there any way to combine this rebate with the rebates on the 16-35 and 70-200 when buying a D700? There is no kit with these choices at BH.

    • not at that point – there will be new November rebates introduced at the end of this week

      • Eric

        Thanks for the reply. Do you know if the 28-300mm rebate will continue in November, and if so, is there any chance that a 3 lens kit rebate (16-35, 28-300, and 70-200) might be available? I know the “trinity” set rebates have been combined on kits ($1,000 off), but the three lenses I just listed seem more useful to me. Thanks for any information you can provide.

        • Segura

          Why would you buy an Amateur (28-300), Advanced Amateur (16-35), and a Pro lens (70-200) at the same time?

          No way they would do a rebate on that combo . . .

          • Eric

            There is already a kit for the 16-35 and 70-200. While the 28-300 might be an “amateur” lens, it sounds like it would make a nice one-lens walkaround solution and an excellent deal if I could apply the $300 rebate.

  • Anonymous

    all of them are 2005 12MP tech. I am sorry but Nikon milked way too long the 12MP cameras.

    • Michael

      so what??? 2 years old d700 still blows socks off!

      it really makes me laugh because some people believe d7000 is as good as d700 with high iso :]

  • Mike in NOVA

    The title of this post is a bit misleading. It implies that rebates are available for the lenses, when in fact, rebates are available for body+lens combos.

    BTW, I had a chance to shoot with the 28-300 on my D700 (aka “computer with a lens on the front” and it’s really sweet. I’m about to put my 24-70mm on eBay.


  • Not Nikon

    LOL @ you Nikonians having to purcahse your software 🙂

    • st r

      I see it another way.

      Nikonians are given the opportunity NOT to be forced to use buggy software.

      I am sure that there are cases that prove me wrong, but in my experience software is bundled when there is no chance that anyone would buy it stand-alone: Microsoft Internet Explorer and Notepad are clear examples, as are most “apps” included with Mac OS’s, with very limited abilities.

      At least Nikon users can choose not to have Nikon software haunt their system.

      P.S. Somewhere on the Nikon site you can download development kits to produce your own software, including camera control functions. If you are a programmer, you can make it the way you like it.

        While I have no personal experience with the Canon software, I have been told by a couple Canon owners I know that pretty much anything does a better job at converting RAW images than the Canon software. For quite a while CaptureNX was the best RAW converter out there for Nikon cameras. As for the tethered control software, Nikon could take a lesson from Canon and provide some limited function in ViewNX2. But if you buy a pro level camera, the pro software should come with it.

    • Bryan

      you do realise that you paid for your software as well, right? If canon hadn’t bundle it all together, you would have ended up paying less for your inferior camera.
