From B&H Photo :
We really need to focus on that lens, as there isn’t anything else on the market that can give you anything close. It is a 125x optical zoom NIKKOR Super ED lens and features five stops of Dual Detect Optical VR image stabilization to help you out when you start reaching out to those far out focal lengths. The lens barrel also features a control ring for a more tactile shooting experience when controlling certain settings and there is a tele/wide zoom switch for easy, intuitive control. And, with this long a lens there are some obvious subjects, such as wildlife and astrophotography, which is why Nikon has added some dedicated Bird and Moon modes to help capture more stunning photos.

From Gizmodo :
In person, the biggest difference between the P1000 and its predecessor is size. Weighing in at three pounds two ounces, the P1000 is more than a full pound heavier than the one pound 15 ounce P900, and measuring 5.8 x 4.7 x 7.2 inches versus 5.5 x 4.1 x 5.5 inches for the P900, it’s noticeably larger too. But the real eye-opener is when you use the P1000’s power zoom to extend its lens all the way out, at which point that 125X zoom lens really shows its dominance.
