Hi: i purchased a D7000 body at amazon on Feb 19th and subsequently came to know that I could be eligible for discounts/rebates on Nikon lenses at various vendors. When I called amazon I was told there are no such programs currently extent. I still have time to return my D7000 if I can re-purchase same with a lens (with discount) from another vendor such as B&h. Can someone assist me with information on this matter? Much appreciated.
B and H does offers the discounted camera and lens combo depending on the lens that they have on the list. You'll probably end up returning your camera to Amazon and get the combo from B and H photo. The offer ends on March 26,2011.
I purchased 2 weeks ago too but only the D7000 body and wanted to get the lens rebate post-facto. Technically Amazon is quite correct refusing to accommodate me. I therefore will just return the body (within 30 days) and go to B&H and get both body+lens for the same discount deal you got. It's not anybody's fault except mine for not knowing I could get a nice body+lens deal at the time of purchase.
