    Looking at the weather forecast for the next few days it's likely to be c**p here so I took a couple of images of a sapling cage around 30 metres away. 2000mm for the Nikon and 600mm for the 7DII/Sigma. Obviously the Canon had to be substantially cropped to compare with the P900 image, exposures near enough equivalent. No PP except of course the Canon was converted from RAW in LR whereas the P900 is straight out of the camera. Personally I can hardly see any difference that couldn't be adjusted in PP. Just confirms that the P900 will do OK for what I need.

    the bokeh on the Canon is a lot better and for your bird game I would have thought a massive factor? but that is a problem with smaller cameras that will will never get as good bokeh as you do with a SLR... I do think however most of these bridge cameras offer bokeh effect so could be worth checking that out ..

    But otherwise I agree, excellent results and considering the kit your carrying around with the Canon and weight its a stunning result...you really can see why people are moving to these smaller bridge cameras !! 20-2000 AMAZING

    I am glad this thread has not been deleted , it makes the most interesting reading .Thanks for going to all the trouble with the comparison photos David . There is no doubt you can get exceptional results with the Nikon , if you take the time to use it properly , makes you wonder how much you could squeeze out of it if it had raw shooting ability . Perhaps Bridge type cameras will be the future , but not there yet for me .

    I'm somewhat surprised it doesn't support raw. The Sony compact I had was a similar sensor - possibly a similar design as Nikon have theirs made by Sony - and I used it in raw mode which made a world of difference.

    Nikon are probably scared of cannibalising their DSLR sales if they make the Bridge cameras too good...

    agree thats odd even my wifes little Fuji did Raw, but you could be right having a bridge with that zoom and Raw could well stop many buying Nikon SLRs
