New Low price: grey market Nikon D750 camera for $1,600

The Nikon D750 camera (gray market) is now listed for $1,599.99 on eBay (regular: $2,296.95) - this is a new low price for that model.

In case you are wondering: several readers have already contacted Nikon USA and confirmed that they will service gray market D750 cameras for the reflection/flare issue (just like they serviced grey marked D600 cameras for the oil spot problem).

FYI: new Nikon D600 is now selling for $1,349.95 on eBay, the D610 goes for even less - current prices are around $1,260-$1,290 (all grey market).

Update: the camera is now sold out. You can see the all current D750 eBay listings here.
