    I am a big bridge camera fan and my old FUJI is starting to get a bit worn after 6 years of great service.
    There is a P1000 with my name on it when I finish up my current overseas contract. I cannot wait to get my hands on it.

    Has a 3,000-mm equivalent lens according to Nikon...shoots RAW images, and 4k video, has stabilization... Ought to be a fun camera. I have seen some Nikon promo materials for one of these cameras...that super-long lens offers some interesting image making potential.

    Looks like a very nice Bridge camera, its a pity about the tiny sensors in this type of camera though.....

    I seen that yesterday. Man that is some crazy focal range. I suppose if you can stabilize it, it should produce some decent images at long focal lengths.

    Total spy camera haha

    I'm waiting for the reviews to say the images are blurry at 3000mm because they are probably hand holding it in low light.

    What were they thinking? Hard to see this loser enhancing Nikon's brand equity. Have shot Nikon forever but have to ask now what stars they're navigating by when low/no demand products like this are touted as breakthroughs. Hope their first serious foray into large sensor MILCs erases any memory of this silliness.

    You’re not the target audience. It will sell well for the astronomy and safari crowd.

    The camera offers a vibration reduction system...have you not actually SEEN what this camera can actually DO, in the real world? It's a very long focal length lens...which in effect, "brings distant things close to the photographer".

    The P900 offered a 2,000-mm equivalent lens....this goes farther! 24mm-3,000mm equivalent, or 125x optical ratio, plus more in terms of digital zooming.
