    At long last, Nikon cannot afford to keep the P900 ultra zoom camera from store shelves. Why give up all that revenue? Its 83x Optical Zoom (2000mm) lens is absolutely stunning, nothing else comes close. This is the one camera with its amazing image quality that will bring many folks from competing brands to Nikon. Imagine having a Nikon in the midst of their other photography gear? But it is really not about brand, it is about consumer needs and having a niche product to meet that need though the P900 is hardly a niche product!

    The P900 is the perfect travel camera, nature camera, sports camera, and fun camera. Providing professional class optics in a $599 camera is a real surprise. With the D810, D750, and P900, Nikon has itself covered pretty well.

    • The P900 is also priced right, it’s a shame that they still cannot get it in stock almost 12 months after it was announced. I really don’t get Nikon’s logic.

      • Eric Calabros

        It’s 12 months? time is passing real fast

      • Andrew

        I think Nikon was either being conservative about the components being outsourced to make the camera and as such did not plan for a high demand or that humongous lens is more than their manufacturing might can handle. But I think the true story might be somewhere between manufacturing complexity for the lens and unusually high demand.

        People who buy ultra zoom cameras are not wedded to a particular ecosystem that includes expensive lenses that their camera body needs to support. And so in that regard, you will be seeing a lot of Panasonic, Canon, Olympus users buying the P900. This may be excess demand that would have been hard for Nikon to predict.

        Only after Nikon releases their financial results will we know for sure whether they were able to produce the P900 in high enough volume that was being soaked up by unusually high demand or their sales forecasting was just too conservative and so did not plan for a high enough production run. With their interchangeable lens cameras (ILC), the lens is no a limiting factor since there are many models to choose from and also the body can be sold as is; but not so with the P900.

        • Thom Hogan

          The true story is none of the above: Nikon has no clear direction and no confidence in their products. They consistently under-deliver products that turn out to be popular, and over=–deliver on products that don’t sell in the quantities they expect and they then have to dump into the gray market or come up with heavy promotions to sell. That tells me that their whole product management chain is completely off kilter.

          But we ain’t seen nothing yet. Come late November Nikon will be in deep discount and dump mode. Look for more lens rebates, among other things.

          • Everybody makes mistakes, I am ok with that. But by know they should have figure out that the P900 is a good seller. I really have the felling that Nikon just gave up on everything.

            • Aldo

              Time to sell maybe? Imagine canon buys nikon.

            • sell what?

            • Aldo

              The company

            • Nikon? No, Nikon is not going anywhere. They will wake up soon. Pentax will go down first before Nikon, so no worries.

            • You jest, but I do worry about Pentax. I think Thom Hogan does, too, at least a little bit. If you look at all the outlying players, Pentax seems the most likely to announce a sudden Chapter 11. 🙁

            • Thom Hogan

              I suspect that much of the P900 delay was lenses. You don’t just instantly pour and polish the kind of lens elements that are in the P900. So when someone at Nikon was under-confident in its potential and downsized the initial production run, Nikon was caught in a classic rock-and-hard-place.

              The problem then becomes “we’ve got a replacement/upgrade scheduled for X months out” and do you now commit your lens production to the older model or the new model or postpone the new model?

              A lot of Nikon’s issues really all revolve around two things: sensor production and lens production. You can’t just snap your fingers and change either on the fly, especially when you’re running at constrained levels to start with (I don’t know that the main Nikon lens plant ever recovered full capacity [or improved it] after the quake/tsunami, and it was running near capacity as it was).

              Sony’s sensor fabs are running at capacity. Nikon’s lens plant is running at capacity. That’s a recipe for disaster if you don’t get the planning right.

            • It is not changing it in the fly, it has been 6 months

            • Thom Hogan

          • John

            Nikon has got me trained well. I’m interested in my first serious upgrade, but I’ve been happily waiting for the deep discounts before buying.

          • ITN

            Nikon simply got caught with too much inventory as the camera sales started to decline and now they are conservative with everything with regards to sales estimates. This is perfectly fine. Customers can wait for a bit and buy when the product is available (or pre-order and wait). It is normal to have to wait for a product after it has been launched, and in many cases you have to order it and wait for several months to get it (e.g. when you buy a new car they only start to manufacture it some time after the order has been placed). Why people think it’s necessary to get it on the first day is completely puzzling. I guess it’s the “just google it instead of taking your time and read it properly from literature” instant gratification generation who expect everything immediately. Personally I think we have to move away from the instant gratification as a mainstream philosophy because otherwise we will have no one left who can solve difficult problems (since everyone is just busy social networking and surfing instead of taking the time to think about the problem). In my opinion also this can apply to products. The fewer products are made the better it is for the environment and so consumers should be taught to resist consumption if it is not absolutely necessary to buy something. At the very least a few months of waiting period would allow the consumer time to evaluate whether they really need the product.

            • Thom Hogan

              Nice sales job, but I’m not buying it.

              I’ve said for a long time that Nikon is completely out of touch with its customer base. Product management doesn’t seem to know what will and won’t be popular any more because of that.

              > It is normal to have to wait for a product after it has been launched

              Generally, no. And autos are a little different than consumer electronics.

              > Consumers can wait a bit

              “A bit” has now turned into six or seven months. Not my definition of “a bit.”

              Beyond that, there’s the side issue: when you introduce something that has buzz–and the P900 had buzz–failing to deliver it to those that are suddenly interested in it in a timely fashion basically wastes that buzz. And then we have Nikon’s usual failing: the inability to move inventory from where it has collected to where it is selling due to their 18th century subsidiary and warranty policies.

              > Get away from instant gratification

              Sure, I’m mostly with you on that. But there’s also DELAYED gratification, and that’s not a good thing to produce in an industry that’s in trouble.

              > The fewer products that are made…

              Wow. So Nikon should just go out of business, then? Nikon shouldn’t make any more P900’s because they’ve made enough? If you truly feel like that last sentence of yours is your philosophy, then you should just write “it’s fine by me that Nikon didn’t produce enough P900’s to demand. Camera makers should just get used to people not buying cameras.”

            • ITN

              No, I’m not saying that Nikon or other manufacturers should go out of business. What I’m saying is that it is probably good for consumers to not assume immediate availability of a hot new product and accept that some things are difficult to get. For Nikon’s business of course a perfect matching of production with demand would be ideal but consumers are fickle and a small issue may turn a potential fairy-tale success into a mediocre seller. I think it is smart for Nikon to start production with slight underestimation of demand and gradually increase production if it turns out the demand is sustained. E.g. with the 300/4 PF the supply exceeded the sales of the older version but not by as much as the demand. However, the optics is new for Nikon and the light weight probably is partly responsible for the anomalies in the VR system’s behavior so it was a good thing that Nikon did not manufacture 100000 of the lenses in the first year to satisfy demand in full. They need to gather data on the performance and users’ perspective of it and learn what can be learned from it. The P900 is also a kind of a novel product with extreme zoom range and I’m sure Nikon can learn from user experiences with that product as well. This impatience of people when they can’t immediately buy a product the next day it is released is annoying and symptomatic of our culture and this age. I think some shortages would probably teach people some character and patience which seems to be totally missing on some. 6 months is a long time to wait, I agree with that. But there are other cameras that people can use in the meanwhile. It’s not like this camera was the only one that can be used. It can probably give a taste of supertele photography to consumers but has many limitations (AF speed, absolute aperture) so it might as well frustrate users if they expect too much. So if people are eager and have a bit more money they can buy a D7200 and 200-500/5.6 and get much better results. It’s not like the P900 gives a free lunch or is particularly easy to use for most long lens applications. It is more like a teaser product which gives people a hint of what is possible with a dedicated camera, in the optimal conditions for the use of this camera. It is perhaps fitting for a teaser to be largely unavailable.

        • Whatever the issue, Nikon should have resolved it by know.

          • Andrew

            Well, I said it, the lens on the P900 must be the limiting factor in terms of constraints on production; and the good fellow Thom just confirmed (or speculated) it 😉

            So it seems as if Nikon could not easily increase their production of lenses. And that supply at BestBuy you spoke of? It was gone in a matter of minutes or so. Nikon comes out with a successful product and cannot meet the demand, this is not good 😉

      But it is about the Nikon Df camera in my opinion is, and also those gray market cameras with low noise have helped the right consumers who have not have been sure why to buy ultra zoom. The Coolpix A is and smart “camera” phones are quality products, and thus how many product developments may appear to be more academic? I am surprised. Nikon has some points but not so with the D810, D750 cameras. When they’re reducing problems, there’s new sales. So additionally I do think it is concerned with what affects biggest cost and when it has a price point or body styling contrasts, pricing the lenses regressed for a a few years and even raised. But they would be a business. And you get thing like 13 full frame cameras, refinements, and engineering, many differ in research and sales will find ourselves will making to providing future risk average sensor cost has dropped as low as $800 or less. But it is a service advance that is had and engineering challenges to executives still need to proceed with development. Now when the average consumer’s needs are now in the fixed initial product launch, it is not a production the same way with you are saying. But it seems it makes good business sense because products have lenses. OK, I am surprised. Nikon is just thinking about issues. The positive of the P900 when the rumors actually know the P900, Nikon was either doing something else as the engineers have margin at established facts, just not acceptable with a camera that had issues. Give consumers all manufactured products that are of superb craftsmanship, but did not have us a 12 MP cameras (ILC), so there are actically also few years ago or so apparently.
