According to a new report over on Nikon Rumors, the Nikon D750 will have a significant price drop, bringing the popular body just under the $2,000 mark.

The report states that on April 16th, Nikon will officially drop the price of the D750 by $300 from $2,296 to $1,996. This brings the popular FX body closer in price to stiff competition from the likes of Sony’s A7 II and Canon’s 6D.

It’s also worth noting that the D750 is also currently available for $600 in savings with Nikon’s current bundle rebates. The catch, of course, is that you still end up spending more than the regular cost of the D750 due to being forced to bundle with less than ideal lenses.
