Nikon Refurbished Camera Deals

Our friends at B&H are selling some Nikon-refurbished cameras at great prices, so I wanted to share those deals with our readers. The Nikon D610 is already available at a great price of $1,749 for a refurbished model, as well as the Nikon D7100, which you can buy now for $939. As before, the Nikon D800 is also available at $2,399 and there are a few other options for refurbished lenses. Please note that a manufacturer-refurbished item means that the camera was returned by a customer (sometimes due to flaws and other times for no reason / dissatisfaction) and the manufacturer thoroughly re-inspected the item, fixed any potential issues and put it for sale it at a significantly lower price. Just like with any new item, B&H provides a 30-day warranty for refurbished stock, so you can return the item if you are not happy with its condition. In addition, there is a 90-day manufacturer warranty in case anything goes wrong, so you can send it back to Nikon for free repair. If you would like to find out more about refurbished gear, check out this article at B&H.

    I was excited about purchasing my refurbished D600 last fall. It seemed fine, until an extended trip to Europe and I started seeing the oil splatters I had heard so much about. After returning home, I called B&H to return it, and they said I was beyond the 90 day warranty period. Seems it was one or two days over the 90 days, from date of purchase, not date of my receiving the camera. They “did me a favor” and said they would send it for repair, and cover the expense of the repair (not the shipping to them.) So, I got the camera back after 6 weeks, and didn’t pick it up for about a month to use it, when I found that the viewfinder was blurry…I checked everything, and talked to a technician. Then I went round and round with them about sending it back in for repair – they said it was beyond the 90 day warranty period….never acknowledging that their “repair” initiated the blurry viewfinder. After about 50 minutes with them, they agreed to take care of it for me, “because I had been a good customer for many years”, not because they screwed up my camera…just a word of warning to those eager to get those great deals.

      Thanks for the warning!!

      Carol, thanks for sharing! I always recommend to test cameras after purchasing for that reason. I think your issue was dust and not oil on the D600, similar to what most people experienced, including myself. The D610 should be free from those issues…

        I purchased my Nikon D7000 refurbished with a 90 day warranty from… Ritz camera. They even offered their own warranty for a year after the 90 Day one from Nikon Expired. I was sure it was the must talked about oil splatter problem units.

        Sure enough, I looked at the sensor there were like 3 spots.. not sure if it was oil but the very very circular and transparent dots in my images made me suspect it was. I used “Vsible Dust” to clean it off and its been two years and haven’t had any issues so far.

        Refurb’s are a great deal! You just have to inspect and test it well before deciding to keep it. Like any product the quality varies with the technician who actually serviced it.

      Friends – I see that Nikon has just issued a D600 Service Advisory. They will fix ALL D600 units even if outside of factory warranty!!! Now is a GREAT time to buy a D600 and make use of Nikon’s fix. Thanks to Nikon for FINALLY doing the right thing. Amazing what a class action lawsuit will do.

    Just curious why the D700 is still way expensive than the D610?

    • February 25, 2014 at 5:32 pm

      Ravi, where do you see D700? I don’t think those are sold refurbished anywhere…

        I am sorry, it was not part of the refurbished deal. But somehow it came up in their site and was astounded to see that it still held its price.

        But, after searching for it I see a used one at B&H for around $1700.00. But I am still wondering why it costs the same as the refurb D610. I thought the D610 has way better specs and latest tech and build quality to match?

    This may sound dumb, but I wouldn’t mind trading in or selling my D7000 for a refurbished D7100. One major drawback is my expensive MB-D11 battery grip. If it would work on the D7100 I would seriously consider it, but I don’t want to purchase the MB-15 at another 250 bucks. The grip helps with these old bear sized paws I have.

    Thanks for the heads up. Bought the 610. Had been meaning to buy a new one on my next trip into the city, but have had good exp with B&H for used lenses – I decided to go for it. Saved $250 on the camera and free shipping.

    And now all existing D600 owners get to have their dust generating shutter refurbished for free, other than the time lost while it is away for service:

      Thank you for the information regarding Nikon’s new stand on repairing the flawed D600…I hope when I get mine back (with a viewfinder I can actually see through), I won’t have any more problems with spots. I did purchase the gel stick, so hopefully I am set. Thank you Nasim for the opportunity to share information with others.

    Both models sell new in Canada with full Canadian warranties for very close to the US refurbs with their skimpy warranties. Oddly, Nikon sells for less in Canada on many models than in the US, more so with the exchange rate difference.

    Hi Nasim,

    Is there any refurbish store in UK? or B&H can ship to UK? need your suggestion please.
