Nikon Raises The Price Of Its Aging P900 Super-Zoom In Response To Sony’s $1,698 RX10 IV Mid-Zoom.

 by Anura Guruge


What I paid for my Nikon P900 in August 2016
— and there was a shortage of them,
hence why I had to get it from Best Buy.


$696 at B&H. Wow. Check their Website.


Cheaper at Amazon BUT still $55, ~9%, more than I paid a year ago and I didn’t get mine at a discount or at a sale.


And it is this newly announced Sony RX10 IV that is driving up the prices!


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a 9% – 10% price increase on a camera introduced 2.5 years ago, ESPECIALLY when there are hot rumors that it is to be superseded by a even more powerful model, the so called Nikon P1000.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.

Anura Guruge Alton flowers Sony a7 II September 16 2017 New Hampshire


He was there at the ‘West Alton‘ Gas Station/Convenience Store — where I stopped to take pictures of the flowers — trying to take a selfie, with his bike, his camera placed on a rock! I was impressed and he got a good picture. He was happy. I told him I will take one with my camera too. So here it is. We didn’t exchange any contact information. So, if you recognize him tell him his picture has been posted.
