I would bet they got a MASSIVE deal since the CP used to be a Canon user......

I would be willing to bet my gear that Nikon did not make ANY money on this, but the fact that the main Canadian Photo Company is using Nikon now is worth it.....

Let me know what cemetery so I can grab it!

why to give a big deal to your biggest pro customers? sure they got something (not that they would be shopping for retail prices) but there is not much motivation from nikon to go under regular dealer prices. They are used to sell to big customers.

KittyK,

I'd have to agree with Trevorma on this one. I'd also bet Nikon sold them this stuff either at cost or at a loss. It's a smart move really, and if I were Nikon I'd do the same thing. It's my understanding that the pro market is actually not very lucrative for Nikon and Canon because there really are not *that* many of us. Yes, there are some big sales here and there (and this one is actually pretty small compared to some I've seen) but their money comes from the amateurs and advanced amateurs who see that a major news wire service is issuing their shooters *** insert product here*** which can be a big motivator to that amateur market that is their bread and butter.


The CP shooters end up being unintentional brand ambassadors to some extent.

Bang on!!! The CP in Canada is EVERYWHERE at sports, news ect..... just for their photogs to be seen carrying Nikon gear is worth it. I know guys with Reuters who have personal gear sponsorships.....

Those are just empty boxes, they picked them up from the local camera shop so they could pack them for a move. It has nothing to do with camera gear or the press or anything... eh?
