Read on line this morning: Nikon D750 body, new, selling for $1,049.00. Don't know if they are USA or gray market---do your research first if interested. abesofmaine.com
Watchout for scams; if it sounds to good to be true-----

Probably greys. I saved a fortune on my 5Dsr a couple of years ago going down that route. Luckily haven't had an issue.

Abesofmaine has long been one of the largest gray market importers in the USA . I would predict with 90% certainty that at that price the cameras are indeed gray market.

They must be making up for it by charging a grand for a D90!!??

Welcome to Abes of Maine


I would consider a grey market item if I were in the market.

I left Nikon a while back, so haven’t been tracking the prices of their stuff..

But that seems really expensive for a body that was released 6 years ago for $2300. Beyond that, I’m apparently the only person in the world who holds this view: but it isn’t that great of a camera. I owned one for about a year.

It has some control layout issues and such that really frustrated me, to the point that I sold it and, at the time, purchased a D810 for only about $200 more than I sold the D750 for. I had been using it alongside my D500, and was just extremely disappointed in it’s semi-pro controls vs the pro controls on the D500.

I find it really hard to believe people are still buying it new at $1496.. wild.

Back in 2000 I think they where decent to deal with and US products but at some point I think they changed hands to a bait and switch sleaze bag company.

The name rang a bell with me. I'm not 100% sure but I think I found something that looked good only to have the details change when I was going to check out. But that was quite a while ago.

FYI, the D750 still sells new for about $1500 new from an authorized reseller, and can be found for $800-900 used in good condition.

About a month ago when I was considering getting one used, that was the price at Adorama, B&H, and my local camera shop AllensCamera. It looks like used stock is pretty low these days! I saw KEH has one for around $1k, and Nikon has refurbished ones directly from them for $1250. Not quite the same deal though.
