    I am planning to purchase a Nikon D5300 with the 18-140 lens. Additionally I am going to purchase a 50mm 1.8 lens plus the standard accessories, give me advice, where I can get the best price?

    KEH has used D5300 for $572 and up, The 18-140 kit lens is $328, The 50/1.8G is $192

    New at B&H is just shy of $1000 for the kit and the 50/1.8G is $217 new. I checked B&H used prices and they are slightly more expensive than KEH.

    Used kit = $1092
    New kit = $1217

    You'd save $125 by going used. KEH offers a 6 month warranty, new obviously gets you the Nikon warranty on everything.

    I'd check out refurbs at Nikon store or Cameta Camera before buying used from a retailer. Biggest savings is buying used on ebay or forums like this one, but with that you have more risk and need to patient to find a good deal.
