Per your request, here are some marketing SNAFUs:

1. Nikon full-line catalog shows only 2 pages for their wonderful film camera line.

What, the F6 and the FM10 (which is manufactured by someone else) - do you call that a "line"? - If they devoted 20 pages in their catalogue to those to cameras do you really think they would somehow sell more?

Nikon probably only continue to sell the F6 out of sentimentality - or perhaps they have a few important industrial and scientific customers that need them - or maybe they just have a bunch left in their warehouses unsold.

The FM10 is a cheap SLR made by someone else (Cosina?) - why anyone would buy one of those over a good condition FM2 or FM3a beats me.

There must be enough Nikon film cameras in good condition available to satisfy the needs of the film photographers that remain for several decades to come.
