BuyDig offers the factory-refurbished Nikon 1 J3 14.2-Megapixel Digital Camera with Nikkor VR 1 10-100mm f/4-5.6 Lens in White, model no. 27658B, for $349. Coupon code "BDG50" cuts it to $299. With free shipping, that's the same price as our December mention of just the refurbished lens (with bundled Adobe software), and $301 under the lowest total price we could find for a new unit purchased elsewhere. (For further comparison, this bundle is even $248 under the best price we could find for just the lens purchased new.) The camera features a 3" LCD display, 1080p video recording, 15 fps continuous burst shooting, and USB. The lens features VR image stabilization, vibration reduction, and internal focusing. A 90-day Nikon warranty applies.
