Nikon Australia has announced the recommended retail prices for its Nikon 1 mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera system.

Different varieties of the Nikon 1 will be available Australia-wide on October 20. Nikon Australia has said that three kits will be sold:

Nikon 1 J1, with 10mm f/2.8 prime lens kit: $899 RRP

Nikon 1 J1, with 10-30mm and 30-110mm twin zoom lens kit: $1099 RRP

Nikon 1 V1, with 10-30mm and 30-110mm twin zoom lens kit: $1399 RRP

However, it is not clear yet whether any single zoom lens kits (with the 10-30mm 'standard' zoom lens) will be available for either the Nikon 1 J1 or V1, or whether the Nikon 1 V1 will be sold in a bundle with the 10mm f/2.8 prime lens. Similarly, no pricing has been announced for a body-only package — it is not known whether this will be offered. No pricing for Nikon's super-zoom 10-100mm lens was included with Nikon's release today.

Nikon's current announcement forces consumers to buy either a single prime lens with the entry level J1 — confusing when prime lenses are generally considered less versatile and beginner-friendly than zoom lenses — or a comparatively expensive twin lens kit. Confusingly, there is no prime lens kit offered with the enthusiast-grade V1, only the expensive twin lens option.

Representatives of Nikon Australia did not respond to a request for clarification by the time of publication.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
