Ok, it's Friday and I'll throw this out just for fun . We've had a few friendly discussions on the future of photography. What form will unseat or surpass the DSLR or will anything ever? Cell phone cameras? Mirrorless or M4/3 cameras. Some tech we haven't thought of? What about these new model super zooms? The Nikon P900 is out and starting to get a lot of interest. http://nikonrumors.com/2015/03/26/this-is-how-the-nikon-coolpix-p900-cameras-83x-zoom-at-2000mm-looks-like.aspx/#more-90394 http://www.nikon.com/news/2015/0302_cpx_03.htm http://www.dpreview.com/products/nikon/compacts/nikon_cpp900/overview Would you trade your DX body and bag of lenses for a single body/lens combo with 16mp sensor and a 24-2000mm f/2.8-6.5 lens (that wasn't a gimmick)? Clearly there is a lot that the P900 can't do. It's low light will stink (ISO 6400) and the sharpness will not measure up to pro FX kits but what it is and what it's putting out is pretty impressive. But, If Nikon can build this camera...what if they put all of their FX and pro lens brain power into building a true pro all in one super zoom? The P900 is a $600 camera and it's kinda awesome for what it is. Extrapolating engineering costs, capability, and consumer costs....what would a P900 that cost 5x that ($3000) be capable of? Could this be a possible future path of photography? If Nikon built a $3k - $4k P900 like camera that rivaled a D750 with a 24-70 and 70-200 f/2.8 I'd be pretty tempted to give it a whirl. I wouldn't even need 2000mm. 600mm would be pretty awesome. Just thinkin'
