Ever since Amazon appeared on the Australian shopping scene, the online retail giant has been offering some of the best prices on a variety of goods, cameras included. And then when a major sale comes knocking, then the prices drop even further.

And that makes Amazon Australia's Black Friday camera deals a rabbit hole of superb offers that can see you save quite the packet. This year, Nikon fans can celebrate as some of the best discounts we've seen are on select Nikon cameras and lenses.

Whether it's picking a great full-frame mirrorless camera for yourself or snapping up one of the best beginner DSLRs in the business, there's something here for everyone. The DCW team has put together a bunch of great Nikon offers below so you can don't have to waste time hunting for them yourself. But hurry, as stock could be limited and may run out quickly at these prices.

Nikon Z 7II (body only) | AU$5,599 AU$4,674.15 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$924.85)

Nikon's second-gen full-framer can't quite match the speed of the Canon EOS R5, but not everything is about fast burst rates and 8K video. This high-res (45.7MP) camera is a brilliant shooter in its own right – dual card slots, an improved AF system over the first gen and upgraded subject tracking makes this a worthy upgrade if you're looking for a high-res (45.7MP) camera.

Nikon Z 6II + Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4S | AU$4,599 AU$3,570 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,029)

If you're an existing Nikon user and don't necessarily need lenses, then we can't recommend the Z 6II highly enough as an upgrade to full frame as the body only is available for just AU$2,599 (opens in new tab) on Amazon. It may not be a high resolution shooter, but it matches the Z 7II's performance in every sense of the word.

But if you need a kit to start off with – this bundle with a standard zoom lens (opens in new tab) included has a pretty good 22% off.

Nikon Z 6 + Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 | AU$3,999 AU$2,439 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,560)

When Nikon released the first-gen full-frame mirrorless cameras, we were more than impressed – the company had hit the nail on the head, getting its first ones practically perfect. There was scope for improvement, but this 24.5MP camera is more than capable as an all-rounder, including 4K/30p video, a superb 273-point AF system and more. Grab a kit while it's still a very generous 39% off.

Nikon Z 5 + Nikkor Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 | AU$3,399 AU$2,590 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$809)

Another Nikon full-framer that deserves a whole load of praise. It might be focused on entry-level users, but the Z 5 has plenty of advanced features borrowed from the Z 6, making this full-framer a compelling option for beginners and enthusiasts alike. And bundled in with a zoom lens, this is good value even at 24% off the RRP.

Don't need a full kit? You can snap up the Z 5 body for just AU$1,489 (opens in new tab) (that's 35% off the list price) on Amazon.

Nikon Z fc + Nikkor Z 28mm f/2.8 | AU$1,899 AU$1,599 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$300)

We really weren't expecting anyone to be discounting the new Nikon Z fc, but we're utterly thrilled that Amazon is. This retro chic camera packs old-school good looks and top-notch modern performance in a very well-balanced package. And it's available in several colours. Our pick of the pack is the kit with the 28mm prime.

However, if you prefer a little more versatility, then grab the kit with the 16-50mm lens for 17% off (opens in new tab) the list price. Note that stock of this kit very limited and not all colours are available.

Nikon D3500 twin lens kit | AU$999 AU$839 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$159)

This is one of the best beginner DSLRs you can get, and the fact that it's a full kit with body and two lenses – you'll get a 18-55mm and 70-300mm lens – it's packed full of value for someone just beginning their photography journey. While most camera retailers no longer stock the D3500, consider getting it from Amazon and save some dosh.

Nikon D850 (body only) | AU$4,399 AU$3,560 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$839)

This chunky full-framer is one of the best Nikon DSLRs we've tested and despite getting a little long in the tooth, it's still a mighty beast. With 45.7MP on tap, and 4K video using the full width of the sensor, you've got plenty of capabilities in one package. Burst speed tops out at 7fps though, and its AF system has 153 points. Despite its limitations, its image quality is superb. This isn't the cheapest price we've seen, but it's worth every penny.

Nikon D780 + Nikkor AF-S 24-120mm f/4 G | AU$4,549 AU$3,376 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,173)

This may well be the last DSLR from Nikon, but that means the camera maker is finishing it with a bang. The D780 is so good, we gave it a five-star review (opens in new tab). Its 24MP sensor is impeccable, and while you get a really good 51-point phase-detect AF system when using the optical viewfinder, it converts to the Z6's brilliant 273-point on-sensor AF system with eye detection. It's a hybrid! And a single-lens kit is down by 26%.
