It's just Nikon's way of telling you go for the D800.

this deal is probably because of the dumb internal dust problem that is preventing me from buying this camera

Mine is also coming today (a day early) but I'll be sending it back to B&H right away since Best Buy replaced my un-repairable D700 with a D800 ($500 more out of my pocket).


Now that is a deal!


Yeah, but I can't keep my mind made up. The D600 and lens arrived an hour ago but I've had it on sale on Craigslist separately since last night with a few nibbles. Each would be a good deal if anybody wanted them separately and if nobody took advantage of it I could simply return it to B&H.

But NOW.......I am thinking about keeping the D600 bundle (except that I would still sell the 24-85VR). Instead, I'll return the D800 to Best Buy and get a D7000 as my backup, a $1500 laptop that I have my eye on, get my $500 back, and eventually sell the 24-85VR (unopened) for $450.

Then I would have:

A great camera for extra large landscape prints.
A DX camera for my sports photography and as a backup camera.
A laptop that can handle photo processing and tethering.
My $500 back
$450 more when I sell the 24-85VR

Yeah, I think I just talked myself into it. Thanks for listening ;)

Pretty stupid. I bet B&H would have just adjusted the price for me. It would be best for all involved and would earn a more loyal customer. Oh, well, in this case I ordered from Amazon.


I wonder if B&H would do that. I noticed that the 5D Mark II kit dropped down to $2399 shortly after I received it and never thought about asking them if they had a store policy to deal with such situations. I guess it's worth a shot to email them and see what happens.

PapaBob, you've done very well. You won't regret it.

B & H dont do business over Saturdays, the Jewish Sabbath, in observing their religious traditions. That's why all service is suspended each weekend, from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday.

Well, I bought exactly this deal, just 6 weeks ago, and paid $600 more than if I'd bought it today.

I've written to B&H to see their response, and asked if they would refund that amount, or give me credit on my next lens I buy from them. I hope they do......I've been a very loyal customer of theirs for many years now, and have bought a few cameras and many studio peripherals. I generally find their customer service to be excellent. If I'd have bought this from Amazon, then apparently I would get a refund, like Neil describes. I may have learned my lesson in that regard.

At the end of the day, it's a brilliant camera, and I love it so far.

I almost went crazy waiting for BH web site to open back up, not sure why they shut it down like they do but got the order placed and I am looking forward to an early Christmas if my wife will let me open it when it arrives!

It's definitely a step up from the D90. As long as you don't mind the heavier full frame lenses.

I've bought a new wide angle....my sigma 10-20 won't cut it with the D600, and it's bigger and heavier (I went for the 16-35 Nikon). Now I also need a new fisheye and macro. DX lenses work, at lower res, but the view through the viewfinder isn't very pretty.

I just bought exactly this, a D600 and kit lens just over a month ago, from B and H, for $600 more, and I didn't get the free monopod either. If it was less than 21 days since my purchase, my Amex card would have refunded the difference. Oh well.
Anyway, I don't feel shortchanged, I love the whole setup, and just wonder why and how Nikon are doing this.

The D600 is a brilliant camera, and the lens is also great.
If I was in the USA, and didn't have it already, I absolutely would snap up this deal, straight away.


Amazon is crazy. They said I can return mine, and order another, even though that leaves them to sell an open box model. Of course, they couldn't guarantee I wouldn't be charged a restocking fee. And I'd have to return the $129 Lowepro fastpack I got, and take the cheaper one they are giving now.

Pretty stupid. I bet B&H would have just adjusted the price for me. It would be best for all involved and would earn a more loyal customer. Oh, well, in this case I ordered from Amazon.

I do have price protection with my Discovercard up to $500, and I called today and they're sending me the forms. I just worry they will find some reason not to pay me the difference.

Waah!

I paid more than that for the body.

i bought a canon 100/2.8 macro last year before December and returned it in January. the nice thing about Christmas time is amazon excellent return policy this time of year. if they dont honor a price match, send it back. if i remember right it was anything bought after mid November through early January.

Same price + more goodies.

Wow, I don't know if there's a catch to this...I don't see it, but here's the D600 kit for less than the price of the body.

Hmmm. I just paid a lot more a few weeks ago...I wonder if Amazon would price match that!
