    Eh? Rebates?

    • TwoStrayCats

      Were you hoping for free?

  • jstevez

    No 20mm F/1.8 and no 200-500mm; I guess Nikon has no problem selling these two lenses. They rarely show up refurbished and when they do, gone superfast.

    • HD10

      The Nikkor 300mm f/4E PF is also in short supply and unlikely to have a price reduction.

      I am hoping that the Nikon 105mm f/1.4G and 19mm PC-E f/4 would also be included among this but this seems unlikely. As I have the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G and the Zeiss 135mm f/2.0 along with the Nikon 24mm f.3.5 PC-E, I will likely hold back on getting these two lenses until I see what Nikon cameras will be announced.

    • bobgrant

      The 200-500 is so good that I’m now using it for portraits! It’s tack sharp wide open at 500mm and has great bokeh. It’s insanely good for the small price, easily superior to my now-sold 80-400 (2nd version). I’m surprised that Nikon discounted the newest 70-200 because it’s the best on the market for any system, but that’s a pretty expensive lens.

      • Aldo

        That 70-200 is the best… Never disappoints

        • Unrest

          You have the new 70-200?

          • Aldo

            I do

            • Unrest

              I’ve heard it’s amazing. I’ve got the VR II and I’m thinking about going for the new FL. Have you shot with a VR II before for comparison?

            • Aldo

              I did not own the VR2 … best thing I can do is refer you to this review by fstoppers https://youtu.be/w_3CR_H-u8k

    • Fly Moon

      Yeah, I am keeping an eye on 200-500mm but I guess I’ll just have to pay full price

  • IronHeadSlim

    Wish the 24mm f/1.8 was $100 off like the 28mm. I like it as an effective 35mm walk around for D500.

    • HD10

      Yes, there is indeed a typo in this page and the discount on the Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G is just $50 and not $100.

      Consider the 20mm f/1.8G as well for use with the D500. It’s an excellent lens for use with the D500 (as well as with the D8xx) I use.

  • decentrist

    The 70-200 FL is now only twice as expensive as the Tamron G2..brilliant!!

    • Aldo

      Sorry to burst your bubble but the nikon is better… had the tamron for a while and wasnt satisfied with sharpness at 200mm 2.8 and the VC fuzziness. The nikon gives me quality images every time.

      • decentrist

        Tamron delivers 90-95 percent of the performance at half the price. It gives up little to the FL, and exceeds it by some parameters. Lower initial cost, better warranty, better price. For the difference you can buy a wide Nikkor prime, or the new Tamron G2 24-70. The Nikkor is the best, but not at a geometrically higher price.

        • Aldo

          Agree with some of what you say… Im not sure about 90 percent as good. If it had been I think I would have kept it. And yes the nikon isnt worth it if you will not use it much… but if it’s a workhorse for you, then the price is justified.

      • DaveyJ

        I have owned incredibly expensive lens. Way over the prices of those thrown out from any on this thread yet! Just because it is a super lens doesn’t mean you will shoot super stuff with it! Affordable is a terrible shortfall for Nikon. Some of their mega expensive lens needed less expensive types to keep their customers from going to Tamron, Sigma, etc.. best example I can think of right now is the .Nikon 80-400. That lens needed a more affordable Nikon lens offered as well. I owned the lens you think is so great, and only took a few I regard as epic, meanwhile the 70-300 Nikkor I still own seven of these, was with me at the right place and right time. Sigma 100-400 C lens is ellingnvery well in the Nikon F Mount. Reviews are quite good! Also I have used the Tamron 70-300 and it is excellent!
        My point is if I were Nikon I’d be making more lens like the 200-500 and wouldn’t be afraid to put a little rebate on even those!

        • Aldo

          “just because it is super lens doest mean you will shoot super stuff”

          This is completely irrelevant when discussing performance. Im very tight when it comes to investing in gear and yes it is expensive, but the lens delivers where others dont and that is the bottom line. I think if you will put it to work (like me) it is a worthy investvent… if it only to be used occasionally, then yes no need to over pay when you can get something for half the price.

      • Delmar Mineard Jr

        Totally agree. I had the older model (2nd generation) for 10 years and got great pictures. I have used the new FL E version and the snap focus is wonderful and the glass is excellent. Really love it. I got $950 for the old VR model and I am very happy with this purchase. It was worth saving the money for the big set up.

    • Fly Moon

      And the BMW is twice as much as the Kia! And they both drive and can get you from point A to B.

      Your point?

      • So can a cycle.( Not the BMW one though)

      • decentrist

        It’s a value propsition. Price versus performance and the Tamron delivers. Of course your insightful hyperbolic analogy shows the breadth of your experience.

        • Fly Moon

          And can you share with us the “breadth of your experience”, Einstein?

      • T.I.M

        We have a big Kia Sedona van, believe it or not, I am VERY impress by the built quality, so far 80k miles, no issue at all, still look like new !

        • Allan

          Can you go 200 mph on the Autobahn?

          • T.I.M

            LOL!
            I don’t know and I don’t want to know, here in USA if you drive at 200 mph you don’t get a ticket, you go in jail !
            Even with my Honda NT650 I never went over 80mph !

            • Allan

              For their price, Kia and Hyundai make good cars. I am happy with my 7-year old Sonata.

              Does Nikon Rumors have Korean readers?

            • yes, of course – we have readers from pretty much every country in the world

            • TwoStrayCats

              Plus the authorities would tow your vehicle to an impound yard with all your photo gear in it.

  • DaveyJ

    The lens rebates as always are for lens I would not buy! Sure would help if the Nikon 200-500 was included! Only $40 would help!

  • Delmar Mineard Jr

    Wow, this surprised me that they are back with this instant rebate. Good for us.

  • TwoStrayCats

    Yippee. Scored the 14-24. I’ve been waiting for 6 months for the $200-off to reappear for this lens. I was right on the edge of ordering a Zeiss 18mm if it didn’t happen this month.

  • Ryan Mac

    Is the rebate the same for Canada as USA?

    • I don’t think so.
