      I think this D810 deal is probably the most amazing Nikon deal going on at the moment. I understand it’s a grey market product but considering that a year ago you would get a D750 for this amount of cash and now you are getting a brand new D810 from a reputable dealer is remarkable.

      • Nobody Cares

        Can you get a grey market body fixed? I can live without a warranty, but if I can’t be repaired, I’m not interested.

        • fjfjjj

          You can get it repaired. Call a Nikon authorized repair station and ask them. You’ll just need to pay out of pocket.

          • Nobody Cares

            Hmm. Nikon’s policy is “we don’t fix them.” The last time I sent a lens to a authorized repair center, they sent it to Nikon (who I assume would refuse to work on the lens, or camera, if it was grey market).

            If there’s no risk of it not being repaired, then it makes sense. Odds are you won’t use the service anyway.

            • fjfjjj

              I recommend just calling some big Nikon authorized repair stations (other than Nikon itself) to find one that services the given camera and stocks the parts. If you find one, you can ask whether they care about it being grey or not (hint: they don’t). Then you’ll know for sure.

            • Andrew

              Official Nikon Policy on Gray Market Products: “Nikon Inc. USA cannot perform any fee-based repair work on Gray Market items. Please do not contact Nikon Inc. USA for help with any Gray Market products.”

              Even if they find a service center that will work on the camera contrary to Nikon’s official policy, the risk exists that Nikon USA may impose restrictions o such practice in the future.

            • fjfjjj

              Nikon USA acting to prevent independent repairs of grey market items would be a totally new policy, not an enforcement of the current policy as you quote it.

          • dosco

            catch is — authorized “independent” repair stations do not have latest test equipment or training to fix newly released gear. They can fix older stuff; for example, they have the full capability to fix D700 or d800, but may do a hammer job on D810. I think Nikon has a time lag in releasing fix-training for their latest products…

            if D810 needs focus tuning and calibration of sensor, its can be a hit or miss at independents….

            • Thom Hogan

              Close the right answer. The best examples of the problem come with the D800, actually. While authorized repair stations have a full set of test and repair equipment, they sometimes don’t have special case equipment. The D800 focus sensor table reprogrammer was a good case in point. At one point there was only one such test/repair station in the US, and that was at NikonUSA. Thus, gray market cameras weren’t able to be fixed for the left sensor problem at the time.

              Second we have the broken frame problem with the D800. I believe this to be a manufacturing defect, not a result of user abuse. With a gray product, the authorized repair station would say the same thing as NikonUSA: “not fixable at a reasonable cost,” as it means a complete tear down to parts and rebuild. However, NikonUSA might be able to be convinced that this was really a Nikon-induced problem and provide a replacement body. But not for a gray product.

              As I’ve consistently reported for almost 20 years, there is a risk to buying gray market. Warranty will generally be denied by subsidiaries unless corporate overrides with a worldwide policy (as with D600 shutters). You may be able to get the product repaired at authorized centers, but you may also have parts delays. You may find that you have a product with a case that only the subsidiary can deal with (two cases, above). Only you can evaluate whether that risk is worth the discount.

            • dosco

              Yes. ‘refurbished’ with nikon service, or buying used usa-product, is a better option for going cheap…

            • VikingAesir

              It is at Nikon too. It’s not hard to find hundreds if not thousands of reports of cameras sent to Nikon for repair only to have them come back not fixed, even on older cameras.

        • Andrew

          Here is your answer: ” Nikon Inc. USA cannot perform any fee-based repair work on Gray Market items. Please do not contact Nikon Inc. USA for help with any Gray Market products.”

          • fjfjjj

            Congratulations on your copy and paste. Are you aware that not all Nikon authorized repair stations are owned by Nikon Inc?

            • Andrew

              It is besides the point whether the authorized repair stations are Nikon owned, you are providing advise that may cause someone to make an ill informed decision. Copy and paste is appropriate in this instance in order to provide “supporting details” as opposed to suppositions!

            • fjfjjj

              I’m advising people to do their own research and inform themselves. If you don’t like that, move to Yemen.

            • Andrew

              There are many decent people living in Yemen just like the United States where I live. So I do not think it is appropriate for you to insult other nationalities just to placate your emotions.

            • fjfjjj

              I just meant that you would be happy living under the current government of Yemen.

        • fanboy fags

          you can also buy a 3rd party warranty (within 30 days) that will not only repair if its defective but give you complete impact damage and spills. I ONLY buy refurbished gear with 3rd party warranty. ive had my D3s shutter replaced. you save the discount of the refurb and I get full coverage. nikon always says its impact anyway when you send it in for repair anyway.

    • HF

      In case you didn’t see it: Imaging-resource.com reviewed the D750. Was praised a lot.

  • catinhat

    Looks like a very good deal on refurbished D4, I paid more for a used D3S three years ago.

  • Scott M.

    Good deal on the D4 but I would pick a new D810 in a heartbeat.

    • fanboy fags

      everyone and their needs. I need the high iso capability.
      not sure why they dont use the 16mp sensor in more prosumer cameras. the sensor is very relevant still.

      the D750 actually is a better bridge between them both. fps/high iso and enough MP. so few even print that anything over 16mp to most is overkill.

      • longzoom

        What I need is green confirmation dot on the spot I choose, and in-body VR, for my manual glasses. I do not need video, as well as LV. Better DR and WB, much better C-focusing, way bigger buffer. 50 MP and even higher sensor is welcome. Doesn’t matter how they will name it, just do it ASAP.

      • dosco

        But, after years of using D800… its hard to use to 16mp (at least mentally). D750 is a better bridge, you are right

        • KnightPhoto

          I still surprise myself fairly often for event and wildlife work, when I’m shooting a 16mp/36mp two camera kit together and culling in post where they are all mixed together in time order. I’ll come across a “now that’s what I’m talking about” sharp detailed image, a keeper, and glance up at the EXIF assuming this must be the 36mp. Surprising often the D4 is able to chunk out a pretty fine image. I’m culling using a 27″ monitor (non-4K), so the images are pretty big.

          By the way thank god for Photo-Mechanic, if you guys haven’t used it, give it a try, great product.

          • dosco

            Thanks! Good to know. I couldn’t afford a D4 to assess that : )

  • Brent Busch

    Anybody here ever bought one of those Leaf warranty plans?

  • Wade Marks

    Wow…amazing price for such a workhorse camera as the D4.

    It also shows how out of whack the pricing is for the Df. The D4 has the same sensor as the Df but of course is built like a tank, has better AF, more fps, etc. The only drawback for some vs the Df is size and weight. But the bottom line is still the same: for about the same price as a Df, one could have a D4. I am really surprised that pricing for the Df has not come down; perhaps it is a bit of a cult hit.

  • fanboy fags

    shame nikon isnt using that D4 sensor to its potential. the Df was a complete waste.

    there is a different level in the D4s, which is a tweaked D4 sensor, but I dont understand why they dont release the D620/710 with a D4 sensor (with better video please)

    • KnightPhoto

      Better video would have come with the EXPEED4 based D4S if they could have done it. Must be a sensor limitation. The D4 video isn’t all that bad, it’s just not as sharp as the D800 video. But it’s great if you need to shoot in low light. And the CX-mode actual pixels (no line skipping) video is beautiful and crisp and still great in low-light. I sure hope the D5 keeps the CX-mode video choice go-forward.

      • fanboy fags

        Knight, the video in the D4/s is crap. lets not beat around the bush. the D3300 beats it without any strain. the D4/D4s is supposed to be a no compromise. it cant have the best of everything. as each camera has its strengths and weaknesses but its the supposed to the best of “jack of all trades” you saw the video showing a D4s vs the D3300?
        expeed has nothing to do with the quality. even the D5300 destroys the D4/D4s and its old.

        my comment before is why they havent used the D4 sensor in more bodies. sure the D4s is the same tweaked sensor but they could get a D610 body, D4 sensor better video and features like zebra and peaking and get less people to leave nikon for canon for video. I know two videographers who shoot nikon and everyone else either is shooting canon 5dIII/6d or sony A7s or panasonic Gh4 and its a shame. one thing though almost all have a few nikkor AIS lenses in their bags. some use only nikkor glass.

        the 2 cameras worthy for videography is the D810/750 and the D5300 is also great but not in low light. nothing over iso 1600

  • KnightPhoto

    BTW if someone out there needs a D700 replacement, for Pete’s sake get this D4 at $2,995 and be done with it 😉

    I went from D700 to D4 and no comparison. It replaced my D700 in every way shape form feature and performance that you can imagine. Have had my D4 for 3 years now, still a great beast for anything you throw at it. At 2995, with a 90-day warranty, and it’s repairable by Nikon (unlike the gray market D810 deal) this sounds like a great deal. I guess you’d want to check the shutter count, but hey you can always send it back to Adorama if it comes in too high for your comfort (bearing in mind these shutters go to 400,000 clicks).

    • catinhat

      Can’t agree with you more, at this price point D4 really is as good a D700 replacement as one could have hoped for. The only possible issue is the form factor and weight. For travel I still favor the D700 over D3s, the full-size pro bodies are really meant for on location shooting more than anything else IMO.

    • Brent Busch

      I finally broke down and ordered this D4 deal. I’ve been wanting something to upgrade from my D700 and this is finally it.

      • ShellyS

        What is the shutter count on the camera you received?

        • Brent Busch

          I can’t remember the actual number but I think it was around 195k! Thankfully I bought that warranty! It’s in absolutely mint condition though.

  • D750 vs. 5DIII

    I won’t spoil the results.

  • Louis-Félix Grondin

    Never again will I buy a body before its price has dropped at least by 30%, prices are now going down soooo fast…

  • Brent Busch

    Screw it, I ordered a D4. It should be here on Wednesday.

    • ShellyS

      Did you choose third party warranty? I see there are several options.

      • Brent Busch

        Yes, got the Leaf 3 year plan that covers accidental damage.

    • Bartuszzz

      Hi Brent, just got mine! Just curious, what was the shutter count when you received it? Mine is around 12k, I was hoping for 1-2k but I’m not complaining for this price… of course I’ve also got the 3 year drops and spills. Thanks

      • Brent Busch

        I’ll let you know as soon as the battery is charged up enough to do anything. I just got it less than 30 minutes ago and I’ll report back soon. 🙂 12k is still pretty good considering the shutter is rated for 400K. I know guys that shoot 12K in a month!

        • Bartuszzz

          On a busy month I’m one of those guys 🙂 Just did my first photoshoot with it and results look great, love it! Good luck!

      • Brent Busch

        Well, yours has DEFINITELY got a lot less use than mine! I just checked and it says 198K! =/ Oh well, I guess that’s why I bought the 3 year warranty. It’s in absolutely beautiful condition though.

  • Greggory Burt

    Just bought a refurbished D810 with less than 200 shutter counts for $2,495 at Adorama.

  • ShellyS

    Which do you think is the better all around camera choice, the D810 or the refurb D4 for someone who likes to shoot sports? I’ve waited on the d300/d700 upgrade for years and it’s past time to upgrade. Is the D4 worth the extra $?

    • Brent Busch

      For sports you want speed, and the D810 is a pooch compared to the D4.

  • Bartuszzz

    Hi Guys, I’ve just received my D4, what a great deal, thank you Peter!
    Just curious if anybody else here got this deal as well and if so, what is the shutter count on your D4? Just curious… mine has 12k. Thanks

    • Brent Busch

      198k! 🙁
