P900 went to South Africa
7

Kruger National Park. 2000mm reach was handy. All images taken by my wife after having two practise days in the uk. Showed me up with zoom and my Sony A7 and A77!

Amazing reach!

Whether or not the P900 can be a valuable tool for wildlife doesn't it? LOL

Excellent shots - Congratulations to your wife Peter - she did a great job!

Best regards,

Re: P900 went to South Africa

Kudos to you for demonstrating what a P900 is well suited for. Additionally, first picture is a great example with the crop highlighted.

Re: P900 went to South Africa

I'd be thrilled, too if I took those shots.  Just beautiful.  You're going to help Nikon sell a LOT of cameras.

Please Mr. Ichiro Kitao, give me a Wildlife Zoom camera (WZ) with a 200 - 2000mm reach and able to take a TC, and with a fast lens and all the goodies to make it fast operationally. And with a big, beautiful EVF. Come on, let's exploit the strengths of a small sensor.

It would help if they had some to sell. (I've been on the waiting list since late June myself.)
