I know there's an Adorama frontpage deal, but this one is with an extra more versatile 70-300 mm lens worth $580 regular price, so potentially a better deal?

Is it just me or is Nikon unloading a bunge of mid-range gear as of late? I wonder if there is something really cool on the horizon...perhaps a new line of equipment with "touch panel" "wifi, cloud, bluetooth", etc enhancements?

In case you are considering selling the lenses here is a quick breakdown based on Amazon pricing:

24-85 mm VR: ~ $600
70-300 mm VR: ~$590

Perhaps realistically if you were to sell them on ebay or craiglist at 15% off, the body and the rest of the items could potentially be $1,300.

Not too bad, except that's before tax.

Costco Executive Members get 2% back as rebates: $47.80
Costco TrueEarnings cardholders get additional 1% back: $23.90
Amex offers: $25 statement credit back off costco.com orders over $100: $25

If you qualify for all of those you save an additional $96.7

Takes the edge off the tax bill I guess.

I think you'd find those lenses will be more than 15% hit, avg sell for a 24-85 after fees or to a private party on a real camera site is about 450, the 70-300 is like 400-450 even new in box, you'd come in at 1500 plus tax on the whole rip which is almost 200 bucks here, still 1700 for the body wu-1b etc aint bad

This is a great deal IF you want the 70-300, if you don't, you might recoup 50-75 bucks over the other deals selling the 70-300

currently have the D7000 and already have 70-300. I just want the full frame body! pairing this with 24-70 and 85 1.4 would be magical!

OK, this is getting interesting. I'm going to hold off and see if Adorama, Amazon, BH Photo will come up with cheaper bundles.

Costco's tax kills the deal.

This is for two days only. Nikon is simply making Canon 6D irrelevant for new buyers. If you don't already have a bunch of Canon L lenses, these makes buying into Nikon system a no-brainer...

$167 in sales tax and having to sell two lenses instead of one doesn't justify my buying from Costco. This kit costs $400 more plus the sales tax makes it $560 more...cant get that much selling the second lens. I was able to get 3% cashback with Mr. Rebates and 4% through the adorama VISA promotion making the Adorama deal even better.

with tax isn't better deal than Adorama but it has best return policy of them all.

And in the case of the D600, that could be critical.
