"Where to buy D7000"


US
          

I did a quick scan through this forum and could not find a good place where I could purchase a new Nikon D7000. Nikon lists this camera at $1,199.95 retail. Nikon has a website search engine on "where to buy" but all the places they list are out of this camera. I did an online search and found less than 5 places that sell this camera. Most places are selling this camera over the retail price.
Can anyone point to an online retailer that has these cameras selling new with a USA warranty (not grey market)? If not, could anyone point me towards a brick and mortar retailer that carries this camera?

All I've been able to find in stock are refurbs. Here's what I found.

You're looking for a popular camera immediately after the near-global holiday shopping madness. Makes sense that it's out of stock everywhere. Everything is in short supply at this time of year. Wait a few weeks for inventory to be replenished and there will then be plenty of stock and plenty of competitive pricing once again IMO.

Just keep checking Amazon, B&H Photo, and Adorama...you may even pre-order it, if any of those sites will let you...that way you'll be first on the list when they start coming back in stock! I actually snagged mine at a local BestBuy last year when they were really hard to find. I had to drive 1 hour to the store in a snowstorm, but it was well worth it!!!!

In addition to BH, Adorama, and Amazon (I personally like to stick with items sold by Amazon, not a third party selling through Amazon unless they are on the manufacturers authorized sellers list).

You might also try Berger Brothers.
There is a great camera shop chain to where I am at, you might call and see if they have any. They have an online store so they probably can ship: http://www.natcam.com/

If you can find a local store with a Nikon event, they usually get a priority status for inventory. The D700 has been hard to find for a long time. During the Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday time period, my local independent dealer had an event and the Nikon rep was there, along with other reps (not competing camera reps), and they got at least 6 D700's and who knows how many D7000's that showed up the night before and couldn't go on sale till the morning of the event. I bought my D7k at that time, but was waivering over the D700. Decided to wait for it's replacement.

BTW, when you finally get your D7k, check your shots for a dirty sensor. Mine was unbelievably dirty.

You might have to come to Canada to buy it, although here too, it was in very short supply in the Henry's camera chain, only available in Halifax as a Body only. However, I was able to get another chain, Carmen's Camera to break up a kit and just sell me the body only in trade for a D80. You might try that avenue. Some places will break up a kit while others were not so inclined.

I was able to find mine right after Christmas at my local and favored camera store. I actually got the last one they had in stock that day. They've only been able to get the body only, they said kits have been out of stock for months.

One thing to note, I only paid the Nikon recommended $1199.00 price for the body only, for some reason some online retailers are gouging that price shamelessly for an extra $100 at $1299.00, of course since they're out of stock it doesn't matter.

I am in Canada but I just helped a friend purchase one and I will advise if you fine one grab it.. they are rapidly getting extinct. We spent the better part of an hour calling all over the country to get one.

This will sound redundant but watch Amazon.com, Adorama and B&H. Another place to keep an eye on is Costco.com as they have had the D7000 w/ 18-200mm lens at a good price - but they're out of stock now. I'd also keep an eye on the Nikon Outlet Store - they list the refurbished price as $1,079.96 http://shop.nikonusa.com/store/nikonusa/en_US/list/ThemeID.18145600/parentCategoryID.43896400/categoryID.43896500

It'll be worth the wait.

There is a really good company who advertises on here and has a section on the forum to ask them questions. It's Berger Brothers and they seem to be a very honest company. You may want to go to their forum on here and post what you are looking for.

I just checked B & H, and the have the Body Only In Stock for $1299.00 - I know that's a bit higher, but the shipping is free. How bad do you want it? $1199.00 plus shipping versus $1299.00 w/free shipping - pretty close to a wash if you want it quick!

For what it's worth - I paid $1129.95 for the D7000 from B & H in early October 2011 and I got free shipping. It has been rated as the best DX camera to date, hence the demand!

Here's the link to the webpage I viewed tonight:

Thank you for the input regarding the availability of the Nikon D7000. Today, this is the status of the D7000 from different retailers:

Amazon - $1,449.95
Adorama - $1,349.00 back ordered
Costco.com - not available
BestBuy - not available
Berger Brothers - back ordered
Mike's Camera - called today & found out it's back ordered
B & H photo - $1,299.00 temporarily unavailable
Ritz Camera - $999.99 refurbished
Ryther Camera - $1,239.00...keep changing the price - pretty sure this is a gray market camera

I do not do business with B&H photo any more after being burned twice within the same year. Both orders took over 90 days and I had to file claims to receive my merchandise. As the result of one order being so slow - I missed out on a Nikon rebate of $150 (from the merchandise I paid for). This is when I switched to buying from Adorama.

I would be interested in the Ritz Camera refurbished unit but after reading some not so stellar reviews about their online business, I will stay away (lessened learned from my horrible experiences from B&H).

I am pretty sure the Ryther Camera D7000 is gray market merchandise. So I'll pass on that offer as well.

Ebay currently reflects price gouging; used equipment; and gray market models.

I think I'll hold tight until the Nikon factory is back in production. I'd rather make a wise purchasing decision than to get burned by a less than reputable dealer.

Try Crutchfield. They are currently out of stock but they are letting you reserve one for when they do come in. Hopefully your wait isn't too long.

I am here to learn.

Dodd Camera looks like they have them in stock. (DoddCamera.com).

They're a brick-and-mortar business based in Cleveland - been around a long time, very reputable, great place. I picked up my two D7000's from them, and try to buy all my gear from them, as they're local to me. They also have a pro rental division.

I'd call them and confirm stock, obviously, prior to ordering online.

$1,299 with free shipping at B&H (always my first choice)

other nikonians have also included Adorama, Berger, Amazon; and you can't go wrong with any of them

ordered D7000 from B&H on Thursday and it arrived in Phila on Friday

today, their website shows it as "temporarily unavailable"

if you check one of the legit sites (see above) every day, you'll eventually get lucky

good luck and enjoy it when you get it

I went with Dodd Camera the day I saw your post RLDubbya - Thank You. It finally arrived today. They packed it really well. As luck would have it, my local camera store called the very next day saying their shipment came in. Oh well, at least I got one - from looking around brick and mortar as well as online retailers, it was not looking good.

Anyway, I had a question for this group...
How many shutter actuations should a "NEW" camera have?
What is an acceptable number here?

Any input you all could provide would be greatly appreciated.

>Anyway, I had a question for this group...

My guess is that during assembly and testing at the factory, spot checks are quickly done with each and every camera to ensure it is operating within spec. So there are shutter actuations to test AF-S, AF-C, AF-Auto Area and so on, and shutter actuations for Cl and Ch, Mup, etc., etc. While the camera is still on the factory line, I believe the actuation count is supposed to be normally reset to zero before the camera is unplugged from whatever test connection is being used for test verification, firmware calibration and so on. Typically, I think (both from what I've read and judging from what I've noticed with my own Nikon bodies over the years), the actuation count is very low out of the box, and frequently it has been zero. My D700, D300s and D7000 all had zero actuations out of the box. My D3s had 200 actuations out of the box. Can't remember any others.

When you run into a higher acutation number - say, something over 25 - I'd guess that a store customer has tried the camera over the counter or a salesperson has demonstrated that particular camera over the counter. Depending on the camera body and where it's made, I'd also guess there are different assembly line practices from factory to factory and from assembly line to assembly line depending on which shift and which line produced your particular camera body.

I don't know if Nikon has a zero actuation rule out of the box (for camera bodies that haven't been shot in-store by customers or salespeople) or if it's hit or miss in that regard coming out of the factory.

I would hazard a guess that if you have an issue, calling the folks at Dodd would find them perfectly OK working with you. They've always treated me, and everybody else I know, properly.

Hopefully, you're happy with the purchase and get a lot of enjoyment from your new camera. I hope that, in some small way, I was able to help out.
