Nikon DSLR and Lens Rebates

Nikon D5000 at BH Photo

Nikon has some solid DSLR and lens combo rebates going on right now.  B&H Photo sent me a list of the rundown of cameras and lens, and they’ve put together kits to make picking up the right items a simple task.

Nikon D5000

Nikon D90

Nikon D300s

Nikon D700

Nikon D3S

Nikon D3X

The rebates are instant rebates, so there’s no clipping UPCs off the box and sending in 3 copies of your receipt.  Just add the item to your cart and you see the discounted price right away.

Follow the links above to the qualifying cameras, then click the words “View Available Kits” (see top screenshot) that is just below the product image to see the lens kits and rebate amounts, which range from $200 to $400.

(Update: Note that the rebates are “stackable” in some cases, so you can save $700 when you buy a couple of lenses with the D3S and D700.  Those kits are specified in the list as well.)

By default, B&H displays the retail price; however, once you add the “kit” to your online shopping cart, you will see the discounted price.  Additionally, you get free shipping in the USA.

Nikon D3s vs. Canon 1D Mark IV ISO Comparison – Part II

Canon 1D Mark IV vs. Nikon D3s

In the first comparison of the Canon 1D Mark IV and Nikon D3s, we looked at JPEG image samples that came straight from each of these cameras; however, I promised to deliver images processed from the RAW files of each camera as well.

As we are well aware by now, the Canon 1D Mark IV and Nikon D3s deliver impressive results at what were previously ridiculous sensitivity settings.  To see the results of the various RAW conversion methods on images produced by these class-leading cameras, keep reading.
