Brace yourselves: Price rises.

Brace yourselves.. the price rises are coming.

Apparently Nikon are going to announce price rises for the UK from tomorrow (Aug 1st). Canon and Sony maybe hot on their heels.

The increase is due to value of the pound v the Yen since Brexit. This seems to be an excuse for all sorts of things at the moment.

It will be interesting to see how any increase will impact sales or whether the manufacturers will introduce a period of rebates to soften the blow. Nikon’s’ own rebate system takes the form of a preloaded credit card.

Of course this only applies to new equipment officially, but you can’t help thinking the used prices will go up as well.

Wonder if trade in values will increase or will dealers take advantage to make a bit of extra money?
