  • Fixed an issue that resulted in spherical 360° images not displaying as spherical 360° images when uploaded to Facebook.

KM 170

Update: Nikon price increase coming to Europe (new price list from Germany)

nikon-europe-price-increase-2017
A quick update to my Europe price increase post from a few days ago: I received a confirmation from Germany that Nikon prices will go up on February 1st, 2017 - you can see a portion of the new price list above (you can compare it to the current prices on Amazon.de).

I was told also that Nikon prices in Asia Pacific will also be increased across the board. Singapore for example, has already seen a price increase of about $500-700SGD for the D810.

Update: this is direct from Nikon supplier Asia - large price increases on all products planned for 2017, dealer and retail at $100-$200 on all lenses, $250+ on bodies.

Expect more price increase in the future.

Update: Nikon price increase is also rumored for Canada in 2017.
