Nikon Instant Rebates: all DSLRs and 11 lenses (lenses are stackable)
The Amazon Nikon Instant Rebates mentioned in the original post below have expired on October 29, 2011. However, B&H Photo is offering Nikon Instant Rebates that are good until November 19, 2011.
*** EXPIRED *** EXPIRED *** EXPIRED ***
A new round of Nikon Instant Rebates have gone live! This is better than the previous one because you can now buy multiple lenses with one dSLR body. A total of 11 lenses are participating, but the lens choice varies based on which dSLR you are buying. For example, professional dSLRs like the D3s are eligible for the feared and revered f2.8 zooms, while consumer dSLRs like the D5100 are not.
This new round expires October 29, 2011. These might also be of interest if you are/were planning to switch to Nikon...
Please note, you can buy multiple lenses, but only one copy of each lens per order. For example, you cannot buy two units of the same lens and get two discounts. The Amazon Checkout page will actually point this out when you are in the Checkout process.
As usual, only gear sold and shipped by Amazon itself (not 3rd-party sellers) are eligible for instant rebates. The items must be orderable for you to get the discount. If you cannot order it, you have to wait until it returns in-stock or becomes orderable again. Orderable items can be in-stock or "temporarily out of stock" or in any other status that allows you to place an actual order.

Here is one example, if you buy the Nikon D7000 body only and the three f2.8 zoom lenses (14-24, 24-70, 70-200). As you can see there are three discounts, one for each of the three aforementioned lenses [screenshot below corrected as of 12:08pm NYC time - original had two extra items that accidentally sneaked in the shopping cart]:
And here is a "daydreamer's bundle", the Nikon D7000 body only and all 11 lenses...
