Nikon Lens Rebates Starting February 28th, 2010

If you have been wanting to buy a DSLR with a good lens, then wait until this Sunday. Nikon is announcing great rebates on some of the best Nikon lenses, including the new Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II and the outstanding Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G lens that I use primarily for my landscape photography. The recently reviewed Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR lens is also going to qualify for an instant rebate, as outlined below:

  1. Buy Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II with any DSLR and get a $400 instant rebate
  2. Buy Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G with any DSLR and get a $300 instant rebate
  3. Buy Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR lens with any DSLR and get a $200 instant rebate
  4. Buy Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II with any DSLR and get a $250 instant rebate
  5. Buy Nikon 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G VR with any DSLR and get a $200 instant rebate

These are some great incentives by Nikon and the first three are definitely great performers and Nikon’s best lenses. It would have been even better if the incentives were for the lenses only, but those deals do not normally happen until around Christmas time, or when Nikon needs to clear out the shelves.

    Thank you for useful information.
    I have a quick question, what kind of batteries do you use in your flash? I’ve been using rechargable ones but they ran out fast…

      Camellia, it is best to use high-powered NiMH batteries (2900mAh) for shorter recycle times, however, I personally use the cheap “Rayovac” alkaline batteries from Wal-Mart. They work equally well as other brands such as Duracell and Energizer. Yes, I know, I’m not environmentally friendly on that side and I hope to get some good NiMH batteries with a charger soon. The most important thing is not to fire your flash at full power – I rarely go beyond 1/4th of power, so the batteries do last much longer.

    Hey Nasim,

    Thank you so much for your work and all the information you provide us with. It has been very useful to me. Question regarding the instant rebates, where do I need to get the lens from in order to get it?
    Thank you

      Elena, all of the rebates are available through such resellers as B&H and Adorama. I will be posting direct links to the deals today, so please visit us back within the next 24 hours.
