Nikons number one competition is Minolta?
In reply to novaoz, Jun 4, 2013

Years ago, I was looking to buy into a good 35 mm system.  I had a friend who was and F.B.I. agent who was setting up the photo lab in Charlotte.  Consumer Report had just come out and said the best camera to buy was the Miranda.  My friend pick up the phone and called Nikon in N.Y. and asked who there worst competition was?  They said, "Minolta".  You get the point?  You never know when one of the big boys is going to guess wrong, and just go away.  I sold all of my Nikon gear a few years ago, and now shoot Panasonic.

Now this story is from many years ago, but you never know when it might repeat its self.
