Since Nikon removed the D600 from its Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) policy, retailers are free to advertise the camera at lower than retail price. The first major discount has appeared at Samy’s Camera, who now offer brand new Nikon D600 for $1799 on its website at samys.com with full Nikon USA warranty. Also included is a free 180 LED light for both still and video, along with free shipping. Samys is an authorized Nikon dealer. The same discount was published in a major newspaper in the Southern California area, where Samys has five retail store locations.
Retailers are expected to lower the D600 to help clear inventory as rumors about a possible new Nikon D610 continue to develop. At this point, the new camera appears like it will be a minor update that will share most features with the existing D600.
