If you’re in the market for a full-frame DSLR, listen up, because one of the best cameras on the market is now cheaper than ever. The Nikon D850—once dubbed “the pinnacle of DSLR technology” by DPReview—just received a $500 price cut, making it more affordable than it’s ever been since it was released in 2017.
The price drop, originally spotted by Nikon Rumors, brings the cost of a new-in-box Nikon D850 down to just $2,500, which is an absolute steal. If you don’t need video autofocus, and you’ve not been wooed by the latest and greatest mirrorless options, this is a deal you’ll want to look at very closely.
For reference, Pentax plans to release its new APS-C flagship DSLR around this same price…
According to NR, the price cut comes right on schedule, as there is a follow-up to the D850 coming in “early 2021.” For all we know, that camera could be one of Nikon’s last full-frame DSLRs before shifting all of its attention to the mirrorless Z-series, but if that doesn’t phase you, then maybe… just maybe… there’s no need to wait around for a “Nikon D880.”
