Amazon dropped the price on the Nikon D750 from $1996.95 down to $1696.95. This is the “ships from and sold by Amazon.com” offer. It’s still $1996 everywhere else.
This does not appear to be a gray market or refurbished item. It is listed as new and with a full Nikon USA warranty.
The price drop has caused the D750 to drop from a bestselling rank of 400-500 down to the top 80 in the Camera & Photo department. Not sure how long this will last but if you want a deal on the D750, you should jump on this one. Check it out here at Amazon.com.
ebay (via PhotoVideo4Less) has the Nikon D7200 for $749 (reg. $1196.95). Check it out here on ebay.
For more info on the camera, check out my Nikon D7200 Review.
Note: This is likely a gray market camera and may not qualify for Nikon USA warranty service. ebay seller PhotoVideo4Less has a positive feedback rating of 99.9% at the time of this post.
Nikon has announced the new AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED lens for $2199. The lens is FX mount with internal focusing with manual override and a rounded 9-blade diaphragm.
As you would expect from a lens of this caliber, it has three extra-low dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat to minimize flare. It has a minimum focus distance of 3.3′. This should be a killer portrait lens for full frame Nikon cameras.
The Nikon AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED lens should be available in August. You can pre-order it now here at B&H Photo.
