Crazy low prices for Nikon in Russia after Rouble devaluated strongly

If somebody is interested, www.nikonmarket.ru, official Nikon internet shop in Russia Moscow, still has some stock with old prices after Rouble devaluation in the last days. For 1 EURO you now get 87,25 Rouble according to the Russian central bank.

It means you get new Nikon Df for 1317 EUR and D4S for 2865 EUR. D750 with 24-120 was selling for 1203 EUR and D810 body for 1489 EUR, but they are sold out.

If somebody needs some help or translation from Russian, write here.

Jaka

That's $4200 Canadian for a D4S.  Plus a round trip air ticket to Russia.

Hmm since i live very near to Russia.  I wonder how the warranty will work and how they evaluate the EUR to Rouble  when i order online? and how can i actually buy from that site?

I bought the camera, you get worldwide warranty.

As long as it isn't gray market, than that's a good price. If it wasn't complicated, especially the Russian to English part, I'd consider calling and getting a price on shipping. I've never needed warranty on anything Nikon and I've had a lot, so I'd take the risk as long as you could get paid service. You wouldn't get a used one here for that amount of $$.

This is indeed pretty crazy. I assume that you can also get some old Russian stuff such as Zorki and Kiev?

Jones R, yes, there are shops, which are selling USSR/Russian old optics, which were very cheap already before and are very cheap now, like Jupiter  and cameras as Zorki, Zenit, Kiev...

Believe it or not, that is roughly where prices belong in the U.S. Nikon's current price points (with some price increases) were set when the Yen was 78 to the U.S. Dollar. The Yen has been around 118 to the Dollar for some time now. Do the math. Nikon, and Canon too for that matter, have been price gouging making a lot of money on the currency exchange. They parcel the products out in dries and drabs to try to maintain their pricing.

Wouldn't it interesting to see how much product they could move if the price points were brought in line.
