How are camera makers trying to differentiate themselves now that everyone has a high quality phone bolted on to their cell phone? Nikon's P900 point & shoot with 83x optical zoom, pointed at the moon (YouTube video).

$600. For an F6.5 birding camera (F2.8 on the close end).

Some reviews:

Yeah, it's not an amazing camera, and I wouldn't recommend it for use unless you need to shoot long distances. It's a one-trick pony. But what a trick!

It'd be nice to see if there were some pictures of test charts zoomed in, but when you compare it to what you'd have gotten with 15 years ago with 35mm film and a $12k lens, that's freakin' astounding!
