That's about 25% cheaper than the $1000 US version selling price. I have a friend that was going to order it for $1000 this week. If he did we will probably take it out tomorrow.

I rented this camera for 3 days thinking I needed one for wildlife. It's a love/hate camera and in the end, your stars must be in prefect alignment to get decent IQ over 1600/1800 reach. Forget anything shot over 2,000mm reach as IQ quickly degrades. If you are used to DSLR quality images, this disappoints. This camera is big and not well balanced vs my D7200 with the Sigma 150-600 C lens. The thing with the P1000 is that you must shoot between 100 and 400 max ISO vs a DSLR where ISO 3,200 ISO images are clean. If you absolutely are on a budget and need extreme reach, go with their P900 refurbished for $475. Note that when it comes to burst or fast focus, these small sensor cameras fail and that's due to their small sensors and much slower AF. For some, they work fine, but when comparing the images I shot vs my D7200, I passed on buying one, especially since I like to print large.

I know its only 1/5th the zoom but the RX10iii is really great outdoors, they can be found used around $700-$800. If you need faster focus, you can spring for the RX10iv.
