This year the Company celebrates its 100th Anniversary and since 1927 the brand has come a long way. For the big celebration an ultra limited edition is launched – NIKON D 500 with seriously limited edition DSLRs and lenses that will have all the Nikon fans crazy about.
The kits were revealed at the CP+ show last week, and they include two DSRLs and three lenses done in a gorgeous gunmetal gray and sporting 100th anniversary markings.
The cameras and lenses picked are the Nikon D5 and Nikon D500 DSLRs, and the ‘holy trinity’ Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED, Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR, and 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lenses.
These special edition goodies is expected to attract Nikon photographers like never seen before.

According to some rumors there are only 100 of each of these kits available—the D5, D500, and the lens trio— so you better run and make sure you catch yours.
Regarding the price there is no final value set, but if we could guess we would say they will be much more expensive than the standard editions. It is not every year the Nikon turns 100.
