Thread Details

Costco has the new Nikon D7100 APS-C sensor DSLR with 18-200mm VRII lens for 1799.99 after instant rebate.

Link [costco.com]

Bundle includes:
  • Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera
  • 18-200mm VRII lens
  • Camera Bag
  • 32 GB SD Card
  • WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter
  • Nikon School Instructional DVDs & Photo Guide

Who knows about the bag and the SD Card, but the bundle price alone on the camera and lens is pretty good.
If you bought the body and lens at B+H it would be 1793.90. The hard to find WU-1a wireless adapter ($60) would put you over the top. The SD card probably isn't the best, but sweetens the deal.

Only thing to consider is tax, which would be free for all but New Yorkers at B+H.

Seems like an okay deal, but only because we haven't seen any deals for this camera yet. You do get the benefit that it's from Costco though.

From my experience, Costco pricing is usually competitive but never really a super deal.

The lens is no good for this camera - bad combo.

Care to elaborate? I know this lens isn't the best (barrel distortion, etc), but it provides excellent flexibility in a compact package.

Yes, considering B&H or buydig or Adorama have no sales tax(for those not in the same state), Costco deal usually is just warm.

Quality of the lens is too low for the camera resolution. Or if you like the resolution of the camera (sensor to be more precise) is too high for that lens. Better combo would be - either a 16-85 + 70-300 or an 18-105 + 70-300, 18-105 more universal but again 16-85 better.

Ridiculous comment, for a prosumer camera, the lens is more than capable. For an average buyer, who probably will not buy another lens for a while, 18-200 offers more flexibility, less weight to carry, and less chance of getting particulates onto the sensor (don't have to switch lens all the time).

you will get sick of this 18-200mm after a while for heavy on the neck and just keep leaving the slr bags in the closet.

35mm 1.8G or 50mm 1.8G and go light will get you lots of memorable photos.

this is the ridiculous comment.

The type of buyer who'll stick this lens on and never change it should buy a D3100, not a D7100. Maybe even a P&S.

If you're worried about dust, buy a rocket blower for $5.

This is a nice travel lens, though there are better options, but if it's your only lens, you bought the wrong camera.
