If you’re a US-based owner of a Nikon DSLR and you’ve been thinking about adding some new glass to your camera bag, you’re in luck.
The Japanese camera company is offering discounts of up to $350 on a range of lenses compatible with its DX crop-sensor cameras such as the D7000, D5200 and D90 as well as its professional full-frame snappers like the D3S and D4.
Avid sports or wildlife shooters with cash to splash might want to take a look at the Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D going for $1,369 following a $350 price cut.
A popular professional lens that always gets great reviews is the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II lens – this one gets a $300 discount, though admittedly at $2,087 it’s still going to be out of the range of most photographers.
So instead, how about the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G lens, a decent prime that opens wide, allowing for low-light shooting and images with beautiful bokeh. Nikon’s $100 discount brings the price of this piece of glass down to $384.
The offer, which covers eighteen lenses and in most cases includes free shipping, lasts until March 2 with stores such as B&H, Adorama and Amazon participating. Too bad it’s not open to Nikon camera owners located outside the US, though I suppose there’s always the used camera store….
