Well, I *was* going to ask what you'd call the range of digital cameras that come between compacts and SLRs, eg my Nikon Coolpix 5000. Then I went to find a link on the Jessops site to point you too, and found they'd stopped selling it - I'd be quite interested in knowing why. Then I tried the official coolpix site and it blew my browser out.

Slightly surprised at their dropping the camera as this accessory kit appears to be a new line.

Just been called from the Jessops on New Oxford Street, telling me the product I bought from them on Saturday has 'just arrived'. Asking about the 5000, I'm told it's 'been discontinued'.

Great.

Just went to the Jessops over the road (yes, there's probably too many of them around here) and was told that:
a) accessories are still going to be available
b) Nikon are most likely (rep's speculation) withdrawing that particular model to replace it with a compatible upgrade.

So, not too much of an issue there.

how strange. Any idea why it's been discontinued? Does this mean you'll have problems buying any more kit for it, or will kit from other models be compatible?

The Nikon site still lists it, and everything but the lenses and adaptors are compatible with other cameras - I shall have to go and ask about availability of such things...
