Nikon P6000 starting to disappear – is Nikon P7000 coming soon?

Today Canon announced the PowerShot G11 - the surprise: 10MP sensor, lower resolution than the previous G10 model. Maybe the pixel war is over and finally Nikon will get some serious competition 🙂

Back to Nikon Rumors: the top of the line Nikon P6000 p&s camera is starting to disappear from online retailers, even from Nikon's own website (already mentioned few days ago):

Adorama: out of stock.

Amazon: only 5 left in stock at the time of this post from third party vendors.

Ritz doesn't even list the P6000 any longer.

B&H: discontinued:

nikon-p6000-missing

Note the weird positioning of the new Coolpix cameras on the right - it seems that they were ready to release more and pull the plug at the last moment.

A German online retailer has the Nikon P6000 listed as "sol. Vorrat reicht" which means "as long as we have them" - this is typical when the item is low on stock and cannot be re-ordered:

Maybe Nikon will soon respond to the G11 challenge.

FYI the Nikon P6000 was released on August 6th, 2008 and as far as I remember this was the first p&s camera with a built-in GPS.
