Nikon P900, any thoughts?

Hey fellas.
Looking at getting a decent camera, want something I can get decent photos-videos of game out to reasonable distances. I've had a brief look at a Nikon P900 and I like the look of it, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with it or similar cameras? Happy to spend up to $1000.
Will

Impressive zoom and good reviews. You'll need a tripod for that zoom no matter how good they say stabilisation is. Nothing beats getting closer for image quality. Looks to be a good choice for a hunting camera.

I would be interested to hear to mate I've had a cannon sx60 for 3 years now got wet other day now it's done. But wondering if I stick with the cannon again or try that Nikon one also as it looked good in the shop the other day. Cheers Andrew

sako hunter I love the cannon sx60 had it 3 years traveled the world with it for a year and then 2 years of a decent hard life filming in the bush/alps. It is the best one ive found for filming and a great zoom as well as takes a great photo. I will probably get another one but just thought I'd see what others thought of the Nikon one Cheesy

I reviewed the Nikon P600, not a bad camera but the auto focus was terrible. It doesn't shoot in RAW format either. I'm not sure what the auto focus is like on the P900 but I would definitely try before you buy.

Went with the SX60 which I have been using for the last couple of years, fully recommend, brilliant little bridge camera.

Another +1 for the Canon SX60, "The little brown shadow" has been using one for 2+years. She can take watchable game videos out to 1200 meters (ranged with Geovids)  and good clear pics. Sorry, can't help with the Nikon.
