    Meh.

    • I am eyeing the 70-200mm f/2.8E…. you will never get it cheaper (I recently sold the old version)

      • BVS

        So, 24-70E production is delayed/behind schedule, but they put it on sale anyway?

        • Fly Moon

          I noticed that too

          • BVS

            On the other hand, with the new Tamron and Sigma 24-70s out there now maybe they want to try to keep people in the Nikon camp.

        • ZoetMB

          It’s in stock again at B&H. And it’s been on sale ($200 off) since the most recent rebates started. No additional discount for Black Friday.

        • it is in stock everywhere in the US, not sure what they are doing

      • Aldo

        Expensive lens but Ive tried the rest and it is THE BEST.

      • Delmar Mineard Jr

        You will love the new 70-200 2.8E lens. Every time I use it the AF speed amazes me. The IQ is excellent.

        • I can imagine – the old version was one of my favorite Nikon lens.

      • Thom Hogan

        Very true. This is a superb lens. Nikon is putting it on a small discount from time to time, so you have to time your buying.

    • CG462

      Yeah, none of these deals are like “Wow!”

  • erwilson92

    Does the Nikon deals apply to all Nikon dealers, i.e. Best Buy and B&H?

  • ok

    Any word about the D850 Nikon Grip?

    • Thom Hogan

      They seem to be dribbling out slower than the D850. I got mine, but I know others who haven’t gotten one yet.

  • Bart

    Who’s going to drop $2800 on a d810 when a d850 is only $500 more? I get that $500 is a lot of money and it includes the grip. Just doesn’t strike me as a good deal really.

    • ZoetMB

      Hey..you used to be able to buy a whole decent camera for $500.

      • Well…not a mid level Nikon since the manual days, but used yeah.

        • ZoetMB

          I paid $390 for a new N80 in 2002. That was a great camera for the money back in the day and when the D70 digital came out two years later, it was very similar.

    • monocolor

      NR has the 2016 BF ads too (bottom of the article). Interestingly the D810 kit was 100 less and the body alone 400 less last year. They raised the sale prices for 2017 on a camera a year older!

  • Rick Johnson

    The fact that they’re heavily advertising the D7500 and already discounting it suggests to me that it’s kind of a flop compared to the better-performing D500, it’s discount DX siblings, or it’s full-frame cousins which are already being discounted (D610, D750).

    • Who would’ve guessed a much more expensive camera (D500) is better than a cheaper one (D7500).

      • Sawyerspadre

        It would seem the D7500 is also much less expensive to build…

    • Sawyerspadre

      It also seems they are pushing lens kits and the body is not discounted. Maybe the body is selling so well, that they figure they can piggyback some lens sales.

    • BVS

      Lol, $1,549 for D7500 + 18-140 is like $0 discount. That’s the same as full price body only ($1,249) + often discounted 18-140 ($299). You can get the same price today by just bundling the lens with the camera at B&H. If anything, it’s a sale on the lens. Camera must be selling well to still have no body-only discount.

      • Thom Hogan

        Well, consider what I wrote in my sensor wars articles. If you’re Nikon and you’re using the same sensor in a D7500 and D500, which camera do you really want to sell? Probably the D500, both because it brings in more money and it’s still the “hot” one of the two. So you adjust your production towards the D500 and you’re not yet in a position where you need to push a lot of D7500.

    • akkual

      D7500 was overpriced to begin with. I guess Nikon was not ready to discontinue D7200 nor drop its price heavily, so they were forced to do that. D7000 was something like $999 on its launch. Also, D750 is closing it fast and D7200 probably is already discontinued at the factory, so D7500 will soon take its place on the price range. I’d excpect that the D750 follower will be priced higher than D750 was in its lauch and D750 will take D610 place.

      • Allen_Wentz

        That is a good idea about the D750 for FX entry if Nikon has enough of them made.

      • It seems that current D7500 owners are going to be real angry over the price they paid real soon.

    • ZoetMB

      They’re heavily advertising almost the entire line and most of the Black Friday discounts were already in place, so there’s no real new discount, except for a few items. The 7500 body and the kit with the 18-140 is still the same price that it was. So the 16-80 bundle is really just a $284 discount on the lens. The D500 body is 50% more than the D7500 – it’s really not appealing to the same customer.

      • Allen_Wentz

        However one looks at it, $2400 for D500 with the superb 16-80mm lens plus a grip kit is a good deal. The 16-80mm is a true synergy on the D500, and there is no similar synergistic midrange lens for the D850.

        • dabug91

          It’s the exact same deal they had a year ago. It was a good deal back then, and it still is today. And what do you mean? Aside from the f/2.8 at the widest focal length, the DX 16-80mm is basically an identical lens to the FX 24-120mm f/4G VR.

          • Allen_Wentz

            I am one of those photogs who believes some lenses work better with certain bodies. IMO the 16-80mm on the D500 is unequivocally one of those synergistic combinations. I have not personally used the 24-120mm on the D850, but everything I have read suggests that it is definitely _not_ one of the synergistic lens/body combos.

            • dabug91

              That’s why I used the word “basically.” Duh. Do you think Nikon will be making a 24-120mm f/2.8-4.0E anytime soon? No.

    • Spy Black

      I don’t think it’s a “flop”, but simply overpriced. With the advent of the D500, the D7xxx has been relagated back to pure consumer status. As a consumer camera it’s a pretty good camera. What Nikon really needs to do is knock the price of the D7500 closer to D5xxx territory, knock the D5xxx price down to D3xxx territory, and get rid of the D3xxx line.

      • Brett A. Wheeler

        Amen! The D3xxx needs to go, like yesterday!

        • decentrist

          so you want to accelerate Nikon’s demise? 3xxx series is the gateway drug for young newbs or any first user.

          • Allen_Wentz

            Agreed, currently D3xxx is critical entry to real Nikon. It will be interesting to see how Nikon’s response to mirrorless addresses that entry point.

          • Agree unless they price 5xxx nearer to 3xxx levels. Or of course bring a 3xxx equivalent mirrorless to market.

          • Michael Turner

            Also, it’s a huge money maker for Nikon.

      • Thom Hogan

        Realistically, the D7500 is a US$999 camera.

        What I can’t quite figure out is NikonUSA’s recent pricing. The D7500 is overpriced to market, the D850 is underpriced to market. So on the one hand, they’re leaving cameras in inventory, on the other hand they’re leaving dollars on the table. That just seems strange to me. There has to be something I’m missing.

        • HD10

          Agree. There are 3 persons who are waiting for my recommendation on what to purchase this Black Friday. I had considered the D7500 + 16-80mm f/2.8-4.0combo for approx. $1600 but given the $1850 price for this combo, I am unlikely to recommend this combo.

          • csdwII

            I’m sitting here on pins and needles waiting for Thom’s D7500 review myself!

        • Allen_Wentz

          Thom IMO you are missing nothing and we are simply observing long term marketing incompetence. Nikon would make for a great b-school marketing case study.

  • br0xibear
    • Allan

      lol.

      No Nikon ambassadorship for you.

      🙂

      • br0xibear

        They’d be better off getting rid of the ambassadors and employing a better marketing company.

        • Allan

          Keep the ambassadors.

          Get a better marketing company.

          🙂

          • Luca Motz

            I think the ambassadors are useless by now. Nothing out of their mouth will ever be received as genuine. Not that anyone will ever get to hear or read what they say because none of their ambassadors has a big following 😛

            • TurtleCat

              I don’t think any of the ambassadors for any brand has a big following generally speaking, except in their relative niches. The closest, a few years ago, was Scott Kelby. If Nikon had ambassadored him about 5-10 years ago it would have been much bigger than him just being a Nikon guy at the time. Of course, Scott’s star isn’t shining as brightly these days either.

            • Luca Motz

              Well there are ones that are well known in the photographic community though 😉

        • Luca Motz

          I’m so with you on this one. Their ambassadors are such a joke. And not because they are bad photographers but because Nikon makes them act like fools. I honestly believe Thom Hogan and Steve Perry and Jared Polin and even Matt Granger would make better ambassadors. Why? They are (mostly) honest Nikon users who know (mostly, especially excluding Matt Granger and Jared Polin from the technical aspects, those guys are cringeworthy) something about photography and use Nikon. When I hear Moose Peterson telling me how great some new plastic fantastic lens is again and that he uses it all the time I as a customer know he’s full of shit. When I see Jared Polin use his Nikon gear and praising the 105 1.4 for example I feel my GAS coming up right away. Sony does it waaaay better. Their obnoxious artisan guy this Jazz hipster that doesn’t know a thing about photography sure knows how to genuinely sell stuff. And if I wasn’t such a Sony hater (hate love/want relationship really though) I could see me liking the stuff he puts out. And Canon just has everyone running around with their stuff so their marketing is rather easy

          • Richard Reed

            As is typical of most companies IMO– when there are some struggles financially, the marketing department typically takes a hit. Frankly, I think YouTubers are becoming the defacto ambassadors for many consumers. I think Fujifilm has been one of the more successful companies at having a traditional stable of brand ambassadors touting their gear on YouTube as well as loaning their products to influential YouTubers for review.

            • Luca Motz

              Well yes loads of companies do that. Except Nikon

        • Allen_Wentz

          The problem is that true marketing gets to the core business model and is not something one “hires a better marketing company” to accomplish.

        • lordbaldric

          They should probably just hire the Fuji-Guys.

        • …and getting rid of Nikon USA and letting someone like Amazon handle distribution. (AND REPAIRS!)

          • Thom Hogan

            Uh, you probably meant sarcasm, but we’re not all that far from something like that. Nikon dealers aren’t happy at the moment with the declining demand, and NikonUSA already farms out some repairs to third parties.

            • I can think of better solutions, yeah, but could it really get worse? I know it’s not realistic or practical for Amazon to take over the tast, but my comment is more angry than laughing. Nikon makes great gear…Nikon USA is there to get it into my hands and fix it when it breaks…and they’re so bad at both of those things!

    • ZoetMB

      The prices aren’t cheap enough for a “closing down” sale.

      • br0xibear

        Knowing Nikon they wouldn’t reduce their prices even if it was an actual closing down sale, lol.

    • Brett A. Wheeler

      I’ll take a 300 f/2.0 and the 1200-1700 f/5.6-8.0 since we’re having a fire sale!

  • Matt

    No deals on the 200-500mm…sad face.

    • Brett A. Wheeler

      Unless you shoot in broad day light all the time, avoid it. I had one for less than 24 hours and returned it to B&H because it couldn’t maintain focus in indoor light. The 80-400 had no problem. At least rent one first. Maybe it works for your needs.

      • “…it couldn’t maintain focus in indoor light…”

        The “it” must be your camera. Works wonders on my D500 and D700. It almost couldn’t keep up at an airshow…but only almost. Didn’t miss any shots, but the hit count was lower than my 70-200. Everything else it nails.

      • SteveWithAnS

        How big of a building were you in that you needed to shoot at 500mm?

        I find birds to be most colorful during broad daylight.

        • Allen_Wentz

          Sure they are colorful, but half the species are found in the woods and the other half look best under early AM and early evening light. Lens speed is huge in wildlife – – but tends to involve weight and $$; damn.

          • SteveWithAnS

            The birds in the woods could be colorful if you put on a SB-910 or SB-5$$$ too. I dont think as an amateur I’ll be able to justify a 500mm f/4 in this lifetime…

            • Allen_Wentz

              Sure $10k lenses are out of reach, but the $1300 200-500mm f/5.6 used on modern bodies with their high ISO sensors is very doable.

      • Allen_Wentz

        What body did you test the 200-500mm on? My test of the 200-500mm on a D500 was done in difficult indoor light, and the lens/body quickly _nailed_ the AF. It was one of the big reasons I immediately preordered the D500.

    • whisky

      the regular price for this lens is an incredible deal. JMO.

      • Matt

        No argument there, but still a lot of money form someone on a budget.

  • BVS

    D3400 with one lens – $399
    D3400 with two lenses and a travel bag – $499
    D5600 body only – $649
    D5600 with one lens – $749

    Difference between D3400 and D5600 – A flippy touch screen, slightly better AF and metering sensors, and almost double the price.

    D5600 seems like a tough sell.

    • Allen_Wentz

      Maybe tough for a salesperson to sell up to from D3400. But someone who has $750 and is looking for a good DSLR with flippy touch screen, slightly better AF and metering sensors may find it just great.

      The flippy display alone is an absolutely huge value add to any body. Flippy display, better AF and metering sensors are easily worth $350 IMO.

      • dabug91

        Not to mention the built-in timelapse video mode that some people would find especially useful if they don’t want to go through the hassle of doing it all themselves in post. It’s one of the niftiest features on recent Nikon DSLR’s from the past couple years IMO.
        The D3400 also lacks a microphone jack, so people intending to make videos are going to be more inclined towards the D5500/D5600 by default if they intend to attach an external mic.
        The D3400 and D5600 are both considered entry-level cameras, but the D5600’s upper entry-level status makes it more appealing to enthusiasts who may not have the budget for the D7500/D500 and don’t care about weather sealing, dual memory card slots, or battery grips.
        Besides, I think when you do a side-by-side comparison between Canon and Nikon’s lineup, Nikon’s much more appealing overall in virtually every area other than video autofocus. But to get good dual-pixel video autofocus in Canon, you still have to go for their closer to $1,000 and up models anyway.
        The D5500/D5600 easily compete with the T6i/T7i and 77D, and the D7200/D7500 compete with the 80D.

        • David Peterson

          Even for video, I’d rather take a Nikon APS-C than a Canon APS-C.

    • A D5600 with a lens is cheaper and far more capable than my D70 was. In fact, so is a D3400. It’s not a tough sell when you know what it can do. Nobody questions selling a 4.0l V6 for more than a a 1.5l 4cyl.

      Actually, I like this metaphor. Mirrorless is like electric drive trains.

      Nikon should be working on plug-in hybrids (still has a mirror, but works well with it flipped up too).

  • Bart

    totally agree d810 is a killer camera

  • BVS

    Is the 24 1.4 ever not on sale? Maybe they should just lower the price permanently and call it a day?

    • ZoetMB

      Yes, it’s usually not on sale. Before the latest rebates, B&H was selling it for $1997. The rebates happened around 11/10 and expire on 11/17, but most of them start again for Black Friday.

  • Rick Johnson

    I have a friend who recently replaced his 300k+ actuation D810 with another D810 when he as able to get a sub-1000 click refurb for a fraction of the cost of a new D850. For him, that was a frugal no-brainer!

    When these cameras are your bread and butter, and buying new cuts into your bottom line, Nikon has to understand when “good enough” pays the bills.

    • ZoetMB

      I could make the opposite case: that for a working pro, the cost of a new camera is almost irrelevant. If one works 235 days a year, a $3300 body costs $14 per working day if it only lasts one year $7 per working day if it lasts two years and $4.68 if it lasts three years. And that doesn’t include what you can get back by selling it used after a year. $14 per day is coffee money for some photographers.

      • PSAGuy

        And you forget DEPRECIATION……all gear for us pros is subject to a depreciation credit. Makes the investment a good one.

    • Orange Elephant

      New makes more sense for me. An invoice means I can claim against tax & also get VAT (sales tax) returned.

    • Mike

      Nope. When I get a camera I use it for 2-3 years. Sell it and use the funds to subsidize the next purchase. I made money with my D810. I paid $1800 for it after trading in my D800 (left side AF and all). I sold my D810 for $1800 a little over 3 years later. That went towards the D850. And I can use the purchase to go against my income and sales tax. So yes, they are our bread and butter, but if you play the “get max value” game you never have to pay full price for a new camera.

      • decentrist

        add up the money you spent from the d800 start and the let the truth shine

        • Mike

          I did already. The cameras paid themselves off quick. Sold them and moved on.

  • Adam Brown

    D750 + grip for $1500??? There goes getting a decent used price on selling my D750…
    A D760 MUST be coming in early 2018

    • monocolor

      They offered the same deal at the same price back in May/June time frame.. I’ve been waiting, since then, for it to come back as I wasn’t ready for it then. Checking bh daily. lol. the ‘normal’ price this year for the D750 has been the BF price from last year.

      But, yes, I expect a successor next year. When? Not sure.. but the D750 is still a lot of camera today.

      • dabug91

        I think the D750’s successor would include the following improvements:
        4K UHD video (uncertain whether cropped or full-frame 4K)
        Increasing native ISO to 25,600 or 51,200
        SnapBridge
        7-8 FPS continuous shooting rate
        New 153-point -4EV AF system, new metering system.
        2359K touchscreen
        And that’s really probably about it.

        • Juan Manuel Rojas

          Doesn’t the D750 already have SnapBridge?

          • RC Jenkins

            No. It has Wifi, but no bluetooth and no SnapBridge. It uses Nikon’s WMU utility.

        • RC Jenkins

          I agree about the features, and I think it will additionally be the the first Nikon DSLR to feature on-sensor PDAF, touchscreen AF, and a faster sensor readout speed to reduce rolling shutter (and offer a higher electronic shutter speed).

          I also think Nikon will consolidate models; and this will represent Nikon’s lowest-end FX DSLR going forward, with Nikon replacing the D610 successor with some sort of mirrorless model.

          I think it’s up in the air where the Df will end up; but I suspect it will also become a mirrorless camera to aid those who use manual focus often–EVF manual focus aids are far superior to ‘the dot’ in DSLRs. Perhaps this is also the first FX mirrorless with a new mount? Maybe this one is the launch platform.

          Over the next 3 years or so, I suspect the full FX DSLR lineup will be:
          ::D5 line (some mid-life upgrade?)
          ::D850
          ::D7##

          With some eventual FX mirrorless:
          ::D6## replacement (initially, F-mount?)
          ::Df replacement (new mount?)

          And DX DSLR models:
          ::D500
          ::D7500 (until end of life)
          ::one entry-level (D5###)

          And DX mirrorless:
          ::(D7500 replacement)
          ::2 lower end models. (D3### and D5###).

          • Allen_Wentz

            Your positioning looks good except that IMO D5 upgrade is imminent (H1 2018), and IMO D3xxx also is a critically important entry to Nikon. That said, new mirrorless bodies might take over the entry-to-real-Nikon role.

            And you are correct that Nikon absolutely _must_ consolidate models as the mirrorless response is introduced.

            • RC Jenkins

              I agree with both points.

              The ‘D5 upgrade’ was what I referenced as “mid-life upgrade”. March 2018 will mark its 2-year anniversary. 🙂

              I think that either the D3xxx or D5xxx could be the ‘entry point’ to Nikon DSLRs, but I don’t think there’s room for both anymore + entry-level mirrorless. Both are entry-level DSLRs, and either would be appropriate as an entry point.

        • Allen_Wentz

          EXPEED 5 or 6 and the latest AF would be an obvious and pretty big upgrade.

          Also they _could_ pick up the D500/D850 ergonomics, especially the ISO button. However that move would be fraught with risk because there are so many pros wired into the D750 as is. Damned if they do and damned if they don’t. Personally I would love to see D7xx in D500/D850 ergonomics.

        • Richard Reed

          I’d hope they improve the robustness of the hinge on the tilt screen and improve live view AF.

        • Can the D750 take the EN-EL18 in the grip? If not, I’d love to see that. The D500 and D850 do. And the D700 took the big battery of it’s time as well.

          • dabug91

            Nope, Nikon does not make a battery cover that allows you to use EN-EL18/a/b batteries in the Nikon D750 battery grip.

      • MSC

        How about a 24mp BSI sensor for the D750 successor. I imagine that might allow it to be a great low light camera like the D750. Any thoughts?

        • TurtleCat

          BSI would have next to no impact on a FX sensor when it comes to light gathering.

          • Thom Hogan

            It would have minimal impact on dynamic range, yes. But we’re going to see BSI in everything soon simply because of the way it lets you put more electronics on the sensor, and to move 4K video loads, etc., you want that extra horsepower.

          BSI has more impact for speed than low light performance in full frame. Definitely want to see BSI in the d750 successor but it will have more impact on performance than IQ.

          BSI is part of the equation in enabling good on-sensor focus. That could be the break out feature on the d750 — fast phase detect AF, even in live view.

      • Adam Brown

        Yes and no. Don’t get me wrong, I love the D750. Still a very capable camera and an excellent buy. And I don’t think anybody can complain about the IQ, even against current cameras.

        At the same time… it’s starting to show age. (And in some ways, the entire Nikon lineup is showing being a bit behind including the D850). To some degree, they are just minor features, but some go towards usability.
        – no Bluetooth, SnapBridge, etc. (no big loss but still)
        – no touch screen
        -no support for Nikon radio-wireless flash
        -no auto AF micro adjust
        -no 4K

        And something become norm for everyone but Nikon — no good live view AF. This impacts video and stills. But a camera that is essentially stills-only-VF-only… doesn’t feel very current when looking at al brands. (Though the D850 isn’t any different).

        For the price, the D750 is probably the best full frame you can get, exceptional value. But it’s definitely not cutting edge anymore.

          I’m coming from a K-1. It had IQ for days, but a limited modern lens lineup, limited AF tracking ability, slower burst rate, and I felt too high a pixel count for my taste. The D750 resolves all of my issues.

          I care little for the 5 items you mentioned – they don’t affect me. But do feel a 750 successor needs those things, plus the D5 AF system, more rugged shutter, and retains matching dual card slots of some variety. I am concerned Nikon will pull another D7500 and reduce the features in that tier to give more distance between it and higher tiers.

  • yes, plus the next time they upgrade this lens will be in 10 years, plus prices will go up…

  • geekpryde

    So d7500 16-80 kit holiday price is exactly the same as it’s been for months!? Wow, underwhelmed.

    • HD10

      Nikon’s fault for not making a battery pack for the D7500 that it could give away for Black Friday. =)

      • Thom Hogan

        Lol.

  • Joshua Deluco-Cowan

    So is the deal on the d750 a no brainer? Or is there going to be a better deal to be had ….?

    • Thom Hogan

      You might find gray and refurbished for less. I don’t think Nikon wants to go much below that US$1500 price if they can avoid it.

  • Michael Cary Arellano

    Curious why the D810+grip is only $2800 when it was as low as $2500 (PLUS Adorama/B&H memory freebies like a 4TB hard drive, etc) in the past, before the D850 was even announced?

    • Allen_Wentz

      Maybe Nikon has a relative shortage of one of the components and has no intention to build more.

  • Jan

    Anything on European prices?

    • milkod2001

      Nope

    • tomskyphoto

      I’ve bought a lot of my Nikon, Sony and Olympus stuff in Europe (UK, France and Germany) at similar bargain prices and I’m not talking about tax-evading gray market imports from Hongkong to the UK here.

      It’s just that one has to monitor the market a bit more over here and it can also pay off to visit the remaining brick and mortar stores in one’s vicinity on a somewhat regular pattern. Had some nice finds there too. If you don’t live close to one: a lot of them sell new, open box or display items also through eBay. Particularly eBay Germany has lots of authorized camera stores selling new equipment with the full manufacturer’s warranty and not just some dinky ‘service promise’ by a gray market importer in the UK/Hongkong.

      • Michiel953

        You won’t be in the EU for long Tom.

        Goodbyeeee…..

        • tomskyphoto

          I have a German passport FWIW. And if Germany isn’t in the EU any longer then it’s most likely game over for the EU anyways…

          • Michiel953

            Good for you! Thought you were British.

  • decentrist

    It is rather satisfying buying a used D810 from the D850 hounds, and then repeating the same cycle 2 years later…we need these folks to sustain Nikon and lay gifts in our hands.

  • Captain K

    The combination of a lofty price tag on the ‘discounted’ D810 (relative to the D850) and a nice discount on the D750 suggests to me that the D750 replacement is imminent. Not only that, it makes me think the D750 replacement will be exactly that…a camera that does not compete with the higher end cameras in terms of resolution. That might allow Nikon to hang onto the D810 a while longer as it will still maintain value in today’s market place. Maybe Nikons FF line up through the middle of 2018 will look something like…

    Nikon D7XX = 24MP (with other updates)
    Nikon D810 = 36MP
    Nikon D850 = 45MP

    • Allen_Wentz

      H1 2018 D5 upgrade will likely impact FX models positioning in a big way. Note too that there is hella more to cameras than MP.

      • Captain K

        Good point…and yes I agree there is a lot more to cameras than MP. I was just trying to wrap my head around what the D750 successor might look like as it could be an upgrade contender in the nearish future. In fact (in regards to MP), I generally prefer having less pixels as it decreases the pixel pitch on the sensor and in effect, produces lower noise images. I don’t make giant prints anyways.

        • Well to be honest, on a same generation & technology sensor I do not think you will notice any difference on a same size output. The only downside of having more mp to me, is that you need more processing power and storage.

          • Captain K

            For astrophotography, which is one of my primary interests, it is definitely a factor. Not so much so that difference is night and day but it is not trivial either. For most other forms of photography however (with maybe the exception of low light video/time lapse) I am right there with you…I’d be hard pressed to see a difference. All else being equal.

    • Michiel953

      So do you think the D810 is still manufactured?

      • Captain K

        Not sure…but if it wasn’t still being manufactured (or at least headed that way), I would have expected the price of the D810 to be discounted further (albeit temporarily) for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, etc.

  • James Fennessy

    Is the start date of the 70-200 FL $200 savings November 23rd?

    • PSAGuy

      Nov 19th

  • BG

    Lame. Was hoping on a good deal on the D810 now the D850 is out but no.

    • AlphaStatuz

      That was originally my plan, which lead me to selling my 750 in august and waiting for a price drop on the 810. After realizing they weren’t going to offer anything enticing, I belatedly placed a few orders for a d850.

    • Filomela Caldeira

      yeah, can’t believe they’re still asking $2800 for a D810. Nikon needs a reality check. Also, it’s funny they have the D850 listed in that flyer. When will someone who orders it get one? Summer of 2018?

  • Arun James

    These deals will be available in walmart and best buy as well ?

  • MonkeySpanner

    These “deals” are under whelming – I have seen most of these prices before.

    • the free grips are nice plus the discount on the new 24-70mm and 70-200mm E lenses – I don’t remember seeing those before but I could be wrong

    • Arun James

      These ‘deals’ available only at Nikon website ? Other dealers like Walmart or Bestbuy has them ?

      • the deals should be available in all authorized US dealers

  • PSAGuy

    Rebate just in time on the 70-200 E FL for use on my new D850. Can put my VR1 copy on my D4.. Good timing.

    • I agree, I got the 70-200 as well.
