A new high-end compact Nikon camera is still a possibility

Nikon DL 24-85 f/1.8-2.8 camera
There is some talk that Nikon is still considering to bring a new (DL-like?) high-end compact camera to the market at some point. Such decision could make sense since high-end compact cameras are seeing a small comeback (mainly driven by Canon). I even remember that in one of the already published interviews Nikon confirmed that they may bring back to life the DL line in the future. Of course, this talk could also be for the long overdue Nikon P900 replacement (the P900 is currently is out of stock at B&H, Amazon and Adorama).

Rumors: new Nikon price increase coming to the UK in June

Nikon is rumored to announce a new prices increase in the UK next month (June, 2018) and this time it is expected to be a significant one. If you are planning on buying a new Nikkor lens, now it is probably a good time to pull the trigger.
