Nikon Raises The Price Of Its Aging P900 Super-Zoom In Response To Sony’s $1,698 RX10 IV Mid-Zoom.
It is NOT often you see a 9% – 10% price increase on a camera introduced 2.5 years ago, ESPECIALLY when there are hot rumors that it is to be superseded by a even more powerful model, the so called Nikon P1000.
But that is exactly what has happened with the Nikon P900. True is a pretty special and unique camera and I am very fond of mine.
The price increase is as a response to Sony’s new 24-600mm, mid-zoom RX10 IV. True, that the P900, with its 24-2,000 zoom reaches out much further. So, the P900 looks quite a bargain, even at $656 against the huge $1,698 for the RX10 IV.
But, please do NOT get duped. The RX10 IV has a 1″ sensor while the Nikon P900 has a 1/2.3″ sensor. That is a HUGE difference. Plus the Nikon is pretty long in the tooth. So, just a heads up.
