As any photographer or aspiring photographer can tell you, photography is not exactly known for its affordable entry price. Even mid-range point and shoot cameras can cost upward of $400 (and often more), which doesn’t even touch the average price of a decent DSLR camera.
Well, sorry to all of those photographers who paid full price for their DSLR gear. If we can help it, you will never be one of them. There are plenty of DSLR deals out there just waiting to be claimed. All you have to do is pay close attention and wait for the right moment to take your shot.
Here are some of the best current DSLR camera, body and lens deals we’ve seen:
DSLR Camera Deals
Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Camera
Sale Price: $1,799 | Reg. Price: $2,249
This speedy midrange DSLR provides quick and accurate focusing with low-light sensitivity at a solid price. The EOS 7D Mark II is especially suited for quick-paced live shots that may be challenging for a slower camera, and its versatility makes it a fine selection for your personal photography style.
Aside from a handful of rock-bottom refurbished prices that have cropped up in the last few years, this is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen on a new Canon EOS 7D kit. This camera comes with a free Wi-Fi adapter, and don’t forget to select the “Free Accessory Kit” option that comes with a Watson LP-E6NH battery pack, a SanDisk memory card and a Ruggard Journey shoulder bag.
Canon EOS Rebel T7 DSLR Camera
Sale Price: $399 | Reg. Price: $449
If you’re reading this article because you’re horrified by the entry price to DSLR photography, worry not — you can get a Canon EOS Rebel T7 for under $400 at B&H Photo and Video. The T7 comes with a free SanDisk memory card as well as the latest edition of Corel PaintShop Pro Ultimate, so you can jump right into building and editing your photo collection. This budget-level Canon camera kit foregoes bells and whistles in favor of affordability, but it is still a serviceable companion for high-resolution still shots and creative filter experimentation.

If the sale price is still hard to swallow, consider Adorama’s generous batch of freebies.

Pentax K-70 DSLR Body with Free Accessories, Black
Sale Price: $546.95 | Reg. Price: $646.95
If $2,500 is considered a deal in the DSLR world, a $546 camera body with a bevy of free accessories is a downright steal. The Pentax K-70 is a compact budget option that foregoes some bells and whistles for its waterproof and dustproof durability, powerful motion correction and in-body shake reduction — ideal for preserving the quality of quick shots and precious memories alike.
Similar to the rest of Adorama’s camera deals, the K-70 comes packed with a ProOptic cleaning kit, a Power2000 replacement battery, a Lowepro camera bag, a Takama tripod and an assortment of other protective tools.

The flip-out LCD touchscreen provides further versatility which allows you to work from the best possible angle.
DSLR Lens Deals
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Standard Lens, Black
Sale Price: $169.99 | Reg. Price: $199.99
This Nikon AF-S NIKKOR standard lens is a good deal for newcomers hesitant about dropping a lot of cash on a pricey lens as well as professional photographers who need a simple lightweight option in their lens arsenal. While it might not be your go-to for complex action shots in mixed lighting, its 35mm focal length and f/1.8 maximum aperture is well-suited for low light and tastefully blurred backgrounds.
Slickdeals user Str8 noted that the Nikon DX line doesn’t go on sale very often, so this is a good time to buy if you are still on the fence.
Nikon AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR Lens
Sale Price: $396.95 | Reg. Price: $596.95
Compared to its simpler sibling above, Nikon’s AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm is better suited for precise autofocus aided by the extra focal length from its telephoto zoom, further stabilized by its ultra-quiet AF-P pulse motor and Vibration Reduction. Even if the automatic focus assistance doesn’t give you the results you’re looking for, you can control the internal lens groups manually for consistent lens length and faster focus.
Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art Lens for Canon EF
Sale Price: $1,059 | Reg. Price: $1,299
You might have to pay the premium for this Sigma Art Lens, but the expense is well worth it for photographers who aspire to make every shot a work of art. Sigma’s Art line is renowned for its optical performance and versatile selection of focal lengths. With three SLD elements and four aspherical elements, you can effortlessly remove unwanted distortions and anomalies in your shot — or hone them in your own unique and creative way.
