Used lenses & DSLRs and Great Deals: The Indian Photographer’s Resource
I am always on the look-out for used lenses. I, like many other passionate photographers don’t earn enough to buy all the brilliant lenses or the DSLR camera bodies at their original MRP. The only way out of here for us is taking the used lenses / used camera body route.
Unfortunately the used lens/camera body market is not that vast in India. And when I am talking about the used lens market I am including the old vintage / legacy lens market as well. So it’s indeed a rare event when a truly great lens is available as used. And it’s really easy to miss it.
To prevent such misses, and to be of some service to the Indian photographic community, I will from now on list all the great deals on used Nikon lenses and camera bodies available in India on this page. I will also list good deals on brand new photography equipment as well.
All the photos/information used below have been obtained from the seller’s description itself. I am in no way connected to any of these sellers. Before buying do your own research, and take a long hard look at the seller’s description of the item.
For the great deals section, how I know whether it’s a good deal or not? I usually list only if the Indian price comes to be almost equal to less than the US price. Needless to say, prices for photographic equipment in the United States is usually the lowest in the world. Also prices tend to change all the time, so don’t consider this as the Bible, but only as helpful guide. Do your own research before buying!
