Nikon Japan Announces Price Increases for Lenses and Speedlight

Nikon has released details of price increases it will implement in the Japanese market beginning March 1, 2016. The changes will affect a total of 73 of its DX and FX lenses, as well as three teleconverters. In addition, 21 lenses for the Nikon 1 system will be included, the FT1 mount adapter and six Speedlite flash units along with the systems associated wireless remotes. Newer lenses, such as the recently announced AF-P 18-55mm F3.5-5.6G/VR, the 200-500mm F5.6E ED VR, the 24-70mm F2.8E ED VR and the 24mm F1.8G ED are not included in the list.

The degree of increase varies across the board, but some products, such as the SB-300 flashgun, will face a price hike of close to 18%. Others though will be increased by less than 5%.

The company cites pressures from increasing costs of raw materials for the price rises, and claims that it has done all it can to absorb the additional costs itself.

Since the news is intended for the Japanese market, there is no word on the price increase will affect other regions/markets.
