B&H has the new Nikon D500 in stock and now shipping. For now, only the D500 kit with the 16-80mm lens is listed as in stock (the body-only is still listed as a pre-order). Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Here is a new Canon DSLR kit from B&H Photo for which I custom selected the products and asked B&H to provide discounts to Photography Bay readers (which they did $$$). I have a Canon kit for now (a Nikon kit is in the works) and if these turn out to be popular, there may be more down the line.
My thoughts on putting together these kits were to select quality, reliable and affordable DSLR kits for beginners. These are kits that are a good fit for most beginners who just don’t know what they are looking for but would like a quality camera at a good price.
There are no cheap tripods or junk accessories inside these kits. This is gear that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to my mom or my best friends if they wanted a first “serious” camera. Check out what’s in the Canon kit below.

Canon has launched a new lens rebate program for dozens of lenses. When you combine the instant rebates with the mail-in rebates, it results in some pretty significant savings. [Read more…]
Nikon shooters everywhere have been waiting oh so long for a replacement to the D300s. It’s been so long, I suppose Nikon just had to skip the D400 altogether and more straight to the D500.
