p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D500 price drop


$200 off for anyone that may be on the fence - like me. I would like one, but I don't need one. lol The offer ends in two days (Oct 29 '16 at 11:59pm), but this may well be the new price come the Holiday season.

That will surely bring the used prices down as well. I've been watching the used market for a nice low mileage unit.

Hoping this is a sign that the FX version is about to be released

I'm really surprised they're doing rebates on it already - heck, it doesn't seem that long ago you couldn't find them in stock anywhere!

Steve the D500 is a rather niche product relative to the D7200 and entry-level FX. There was a lot of pent-up demand but after that I expected demand to drop precipitously.

This price drop seems to have pretty early in the life of this camera. MIght be the weakening yen and cautious consumer spending drove the price down - just seems odd to me.

The Yen is slightly stronger than what it was when the D500 started shipping, which means the price drop for the USA is even bigger than the nominal $200 amount.

It's actually more financial than anything. Nikon wants to show a strong sales figure for Q4 to end the year. Every company does this. This is no surprise. 4 years ago, they did this with the D600 and D800 around this time.

I don't see how a two day sale will effect used value, IMO it won't.

canon just came out with 15% off refurbished
and they are about to have a huge sale on refurb 5D mIII

I wonder how much these sales have to do with fighting with the opposition?

It may be them looking over their shoulder at Sony and Fuji...the real deal was a flash sale from Adorama last night of a refurbished D750 for $1399.

If the D760 has the ergonomics of the D8x0, I'd be so happy. For some reason I am unable to get used to the way the D750 works.

It's still cheaper any day of the week if you buy from Canada, and you get double the factory warranty (2 years). Just something to consider. Most people seem to avoid state tax as well for some potential additional savings.

D500: ~$1792 USD ($2398 CAD)

D750: ~$1650 USD ($2218 CAD)

$3362 USD ($4499 CAD, an outrageous price) and Canon doesn't offer any additional warranty. Bit of savings is there (compared to B&H), but minimal.

Agreed. But I have a feeling this could be the new price for the Holiday season. Just a hunch, I guess we'll know by cyber Monday.

Judging by television ads it would seem cybermonday already happened

Yea. Every time I get tempted to buy one of these machine guns I just have to visit the Flickr page of birds, birds, and some more birds to realize the Jedi command: "This is not the camera you are looking for".

And the D810 is at, perhaps, it's lowest price ever. Same Jedi command; though, if those two get married and have a baby then it's "Take my money, Nikon"
