Nikon D750 – UK pricing

My first thoughts about this camera can be read here.

What I didn’t talk about in the previous blog post was the UK pricing of the Nikon D750 camera, at the moment as it has just been released it is the same price everywhere. It also seems that the standard free accessory is a couple of SD cards of varying speed and quality.

So in here in the UK, we have three options:

  • Nikon D750 body only: £1799
  • Nikon D750 with 24-85mm f3.5-4.5 AF-S G ED VR lens: £2249
  • Nikon D750 with 24-120mm f4 G AF-S ED VR lens: £2349

It is interesting to note that the Nikkor 24-120mm f4 G AF-S ED VR lens costs £390 more than the Nikkor 24-85mm f3.5-4.5 AF-S G ED VR lens but the difference in the kit price is only £100:

  • The Nikkor 24-85mm f3.5-4.5 AF-S G ED VR lens costs £409
  • The Nikkor 24-120mm f4 G AF-S ED VR lens costs £799

So this means that you save £249 if you purchase the D750 with the 24-120mm lens BUT it costs £41 more to get the D750 with the 24-85mm lens. This of course assumes that you want one of these lenses, the general consensus is that the 24-120mm lens is better than the 24-85mm lens (it should be as it costs more); however, there seems to be a lot of FUD around on the 24-120mm lens on how good it is.

I have to say that if I was to purchase a D750 I would most likely go for the D750 and 24-120mm lens kit once it becomes available, I have been informed by Lee at London Camera Exchange that we are looking at 1 to 2 weeks.

Finally, if you pop over to WEX Photographic you will note that they are also selling the D750 with a variety of lenses and you save about £100 over buying them separately.
