Nikon refurbished gear now also available in Europe

I received a tip that Nikon has expanded their refurbished business to some European countries.

In the US refurbished Nikon gear can be found at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay, Cameta CameraBuyDig and at the official Nikon Store.

  • I believe most of the refurbished gear sold by Nikon is actually brands new – this is just a way for them to drop the price and reduce the warranty.

    • Eric Calabros

      it means “We can’t afford to support our customers” in a time that “They can’t afford to lose customers trust”.

    • Wouldn’t work in Germany since professional sellers need to provide 1 year warranty to anything they sell, even used items.

      • Jeffry De Meyer

        I think that is an EU rule.

      • in the US the warranty for refurbished gear is 90 days

  • Peter

    That’s kind of a bad joke. You can get the D3300 kit with the 18-55mm for 200 Euros less – brand new.

    • Sawyerspadre

      Also, keep in mind that this is new for Europe, and the prices will adjust to market and supply. The speed lights look like good prices.

    I guess when you have to recall half the products you sell, you need to find a way to resell them and recoup some of the losses.

    • Patrick O’Connor

      Half? Really? If I’ve told one person, I’ve told a MILLION people…Don’t Exaggerate!

      • tamaszlav

        Unless what?

        • Patrick O’Connor

          ummm… It was a joke. Clearly, I haven’t told a million people, well, anything. I was exaggerating.

  • Justtakethepicture

    Not exactly price competitive. Not seeing much point in buying refurb here.

  • Tom

    My D600 went swimming in the Pacific Ocean and was destroyed – I’m thinking of purchasing a refurbished D810, however concerned a 4k video / mirror-less model may be just around the corner….any thoughts?

    • Patrick O’Connor

      I’ve always heard you should never buy something until you need it but when you need it, just buy it.
      So…do you need a camera now?

      • Tom

        Regretably, Yes.

        • Eric Calabros

          If you really need 4k, so go for A7Rii

          • Patrick O’Connor

            Most of us can’t change brands so cavalierly.

            • KC

              I did, sold my Nikon bodies (still have one) and my AFS lenses and move on to a7rii…

            • Patrick O’Connor

              Sorry about your luck.

            • KC

              Not sure why you are sorry about my great luck. I purchased some AMAZING Sony gear (some new and some used), sold my Nikon gear at reasonable prices and moved on to kit that for me is far superior to what I had or was contemplating purchasing.

              Nikon is stuck in the early 2000s and does not see the disruptive technology train barreling down on them. For me there is no future with Nikon gear (other than a handful of completely manual lenses).

            • Patrick O’Connor

              If I were primarily an architectural photographer, I would switch to Canon for their fuller line of tilt-shift lenses.
              If I had problems carrying the weight and/or bulk, I wouldn’t hesitate to switch to Fuji.
              If I just wanted to switch to, well… any other brand just because I wanted to, I would.
              Switching because you “didn’t see a future with Nikon (or any manufacturer) gear,” is kinda foolish and probably a result of having lost the genetic lottery.
              So… again, sorry about your luck.

            • KC

              So clearly you are not actually a photographer, just an internet troll….

            • Patrick O’Connor

              Sorry…just having some fun with you. I do think your reasoning was silly but the last bit was just kidding.

    • Hardcore_Fanboy

      if you needed 4k then what did you do with D600? andexactly how better pictures one can get with that”mirror-less”? but if you had fun with D600 and have nice pictures in your HDDs from that camera – then guess what – you did not need any 4K or any “mirror-less” and will not need that in future

    • Sawyerspadre

      Why not a D750? Better video and focus than your D600, and same file sizes. Do you need 36mp?

      Even if a Mirrorless is around the corner, it will take some time to fill out the lens array.

      Do you need 4K for the video you will shoot?

      • Tom

        Thanks everyone for your inputs….I decided for the near-term to buy a refurbished D610 as they’re on the Nikon store for $1100, vs. twice the money for a d810 (no refurbished d750’s)….I’ll use the d610 for a 1-2 years waiting to see what Nikon unveils for their mirrorless / 4k body

        • dclivejazz

          The D610 is a great camera for the money. You should generally be happy with it.

  • Fly Moon

    What about Canada? Do you know if there is? Thanks

    • Have not heard, but it’s possible because the CAD$ is down as well.

      • Fly Moon

        “CAD$ is down as well”
        I know 🙁

        I used to buy from B&H and! They ship to Canada and it’s super fast. But not anymore. it’s very expensive now with the conversion

      • TO-DOUG

        Because the Canadian dollar is about US$0.75 right now, the cost of Nikon gear in Canada is the same or less than in the USA.

    • TO-DOUG

      I have bought gear refurbished by Nikon Canada at Henry’s in Toronto. Got a Nikon 1 V2 with 10-30mm lens for about C$480 which is about US$360! Also a D600 with 24-85mm lens for less than a new D600. Everything came with a warranty.

      • Fly Moon

        Thanks for the info.

  • Jeffry De Meyer

    At the moment it doesn’t look all that interesting, but I’m happy they finally started doing this here in Europe.

  • Juergen.

    European countries with refurbished products:

    European countries _without_ refurbished products:
    Czech Republic

  • Rubén García Bruna

    In Spain the official distributor, Finicon has an outletshop:

    Products are located in four categories

    1. Outlet: new “old stock”. Most of them cheap compacts, sometimes good deals with lenses
    2. Zeroshot: something like refurbished. Best offers so far. Some times very good offers of “old” gear, but the disappear quickly. I have bought two lenses and actually they seem to be totally new. Some friends have also bought cameras and they seem also 100% new…interestingly they have the EU 1+1 year guarantee and even the extension to 5 years guarantee in some products
    3. Ofertas: deals…although are not especially good
    4. Rest: you can find almost everything in Nikon catalog.

    I hope that helps.
