Is there a price increase on Nikon products in the UK for 2009? Can anyone confirm this rumor?
At least in Australia, Nikon was nice to send a warning in advance. Was there such a warning in the UK?
Here is a message from a reader (posted December 30th):
I too was in *** (Glasgow, Scotland, UK) today hoping to buy a D700, none in stock and was told I'd be 48th in the queue if I wanted one, but they could not tell me when I'd be able to get it.
The salesman then went on to tell me that his buyer has informed him that Nikon will increase prices on certain items by as much as 20% in January.
He also said that I would be able to get the current price if I was to pay in full today. I'm not sure if I don't smell a rat ? That said however if the D700 was to go up by 20% (circa £300), it'd be off my shopping list. I may pull the trigger and just buy from Amazon who have them in stock.
