Odd that they dropped the price so early in the life of this camera. Deal is good until Oct 29 at 11:59pm.
I was surprised too that the price dropped until I found out the reason.Of course they had to do this, after I picked one up in the summer and managed to shoot with it once so far (too much other stuff going on at the moment...)...
I'm really surprised to see the price drop so early!
$1500 or under and I'm back to shooting Nikon. I thought for sure the import prices would have dropped.I am also shooting my $1499 import. But this price drop to $1799 means the import price will be adjusting too... perhaps to $1299?
Well I just checked on amazon and it is still $1796. 10/31/16. I bet the import prices will adjust as well.$1500 or under and I'm back to shooting Nikon. I thought for sure the import prices would have dropped.
Wasn't the $1800 sale only to last until 10/30? Maybe it's for good and we will see lower import prices/
Oh, me neither. My serial #'s 101 Paid mine off on 2 rodeos and a sportrait session. Gravy now for the migratories, but helping people save $$ never gets old.I got mine when they first came out and paid the full price. I'm not sorry I did as I've gotten more than a couple of hundred dollars worth of great shots out of it that I wouldn't have gotten with a D300 (or D7200), D5 or D810. Put another way, the shots I've gotten this summer are worth the extra couple of hundred $$.
Unfortunately in the UK the D500 price has been roughly constant for over six months, in fact at some shops it has gone up. I bought my D600 at a bargain price due to the oil scare. I don't regret paying full whack for a D500, i t is very good indeed.They have done this before. I bought a D600 at launch and two weeks later they dropped the price by over £200. It then fell by a whole lot more when the dust/oil splatter problem became known. I wait now.
