I paid $1049.00 USD for mine last August from B&H. They only lowered their price a drop to $996.00. At the time, I could have gotten the camera for $950.00 or so from other vendors, but the confidence in B&H was worth the difference. Now, some vendors, as well as Ebay sellers are down to as low as $799.99 USD, such as this one - Nikon COOLPIX P1000 16MP 125x Optical Zoom f/2.8 Digital Camera - Black 685843143024 | eBay.
Why the big price drop?
