Nikon’s Supposed Ultra-Zoom P1000 (P900 Replacement) Disappears Off The Radar!

by Anura Guruge



The supposed Nikon P1000 — the Nikon P900 replacement — was supposed to have been announced last week.

Sure enough on April 12, 2017 Nikon did make a rather splashy announcement BUT the P1000 was not mentioned. It was all about the mid-range D7500 — a scaled-down Nikon D500.

Since the D7500 announcement there has been no mention of the Nikon Coolpix P1000.

That is slightly frustrating.

Sony a9 Is Announced And The Rumors Were Right — The $4,500 Is An ‘Hail Mary’!

So it is cheaper than what was rumored (i.e., $6,000) BUT that is no consolation.

The $4,500 (U.S.) just for the body puts this well into the ‘Professional Only’ category.

Yes, I could get one IF I wanted BUT I can’t justify that price to MYSELF let alone anyone else — and it is the fact that I can’t justify it to myself that matters.

It is funny but I rarely use multiple-shot shutter bursts! Just one of my many foibles. I wouldn’t know what to do with 20fps.

So, looks like I will be getting a Sony a7II soon. {SMILE}

If this is indeed true it will be a tragedy!

YIKES & Wow. Talk about a master hijack. Appears that this has happened before — albeit in Canada.

This could definitely impact the announcement.

Stay tuned. I am.
