Any1 got an updated list of their stock?

I'm looking to get into photography, I see you put d5100 is for 370, I think retailers got it on sale for like $550 with a basic lens, is it worth it I just buy it brand new with longer warranty and lens. Or is it still smarter to get refurb + a specific lens I want.

Any recommendations on a camera to get looking at 500-750 range for a body+ lens brand new budget, I don't mind used but just saying the price range I'm aiming for new or equivalents that are used but cheaper of course...
Also if you know any sick deals let me know (since we are on RFD), open to suggestions.

What kind of warranty do they give you on a refurb D800 or D600, or are they "as-is"?
1 year on bodies and lenses.
I bought 1 of my 24-70's on refurb and they gave me 3 years warranty on it. Not sure if it was an NPS thing

Most likely an NPS thing, they have a sign there on the counter that says all refurbs only include a 1 year warranty.

The refurbs are by Nikon and they're excellent.

superock, have you dropped by recently?
My friend is a Nikon shooter and may be in the market to upgrade from her D3x00 camera and kit lens.
Much appreciated.

Dropped by last night.

Didn't check prices but saw d7000 and a couple of lower end bodies like d5100 and 3200.

Lens wise didn't check but saw some expensive telephotos

I haven't been to the area lately as I rarely go into the office for work. I think my updates will be much less frequent but I will try to drop in before the holiday season to post what's new

Just had my D3's shutter replaced by that center. I gotta say I'm pretty impressed. Was quoted a flat rate of $500 for shutter replacement, but they did quite a bit more than that. Replaced shutter, adjusted focusing, updated my firmware, replaced grip that was pealing, and checked cleaned and serviced the camera.

You can also call them and ask what they have in stock if it's not convenient for you to drop by, their hours are fairly limited if you work during the day.

Many thanks for the RFD forum for letting me know about this. Managed to swing by today, it is rare I'm in Mississauga between M to F...

Here is what I saw...

A bunch of point and shoots. Some can be had for less than 75 bux. I don't recognize some of them as I was paying attention to SLRs and lenses.

Of significance:
D600 refurb for 1499
SB700 flash for 298

The D600 is a pretty good deal. Comes with 1 year warranty. Best price online for D600 refurb is http://www.adorama.com/ out of USA going for $1539 USD... However the D610 just got announced and Nikon is abandoning the D600 for the D610. I'm not going to get into discussion about it here, it's your call and up to you to do the research to decide if you want to get a D600 for 1499 + tax or a brand new D610 for $1999 MSRP on preorder. There are plenty of threads/discussions on it, just google it.

The SB700 flash is so so deal. They had more than one (not just the display one)... $289 is the lowest price I've seen anywhere for a new or refurb. However if you spend $10 more, vistek has it on sale right now for $299...

No lenses I saw really picked my interest... I was looking for a 80-200 F2.8, 50mm F1.4G or a 12-24 F2.8... There were only 2 drool worthy lenses I saw... both on the bottom shelf of the display case. Both of which I would never consider buying...

They were: 500mm F1.4 and a 200mm F1.2 WOW!!!! I thought of asking them to open the case and letting me look at it and pick it up, but I didn't want to waste the nice person's time.

I don't think either of those lenses exist in Nikon's lineup. I think you mean 500mm F4, and 200mm F2. The first pic you posted is the 200mm F2 VR. When a lens says "1:2". Its an F2 lens. I'm pretty sure the last pic you posted is the 500mm F4 VR. Thanks for the update though. :)

Any ideas on how often they get new stuff? I was actually think about going this week. I'm looking for a good deal on and 85 or 105 or maybe the 70-200 2.8.
