He could also get it new for under $1800 with free OEM grip, card, bag, and full NikonUSA warranty through the same dealer. That would be my preference.

Note that Nikon is still selling the D810 at a couple hundred dollars below original price at this date well over a year since it was replaced by D850. Note also several lesser models still available at close to cost of their replacements. With these trends, if the OP needs a D500, it is not likely to be found much cheaper than with current promotions anytime soon.


For a little more work, the OP could purchase the bundle with the 16-80mm lens and then sell this lens (as well as the grip) and use this to offset the price D500.  I was an early buyer who got the D500 when it was first announced (April, 2016) for $1,999) without any of these extras.  So, in my mind, with these bundles, the price of the D500 has dropped considerably!
