I have been a Nikon user since the early 70's, but if Apple bought Nikon I would switch in a heartbeat.

I want absolutely NOTHING to do with Apple.

Stranger things have happened, think Rolls Royce. Who would have thought in the 1970s and 80s that Minolta would disappear ?

This would be the worst thing that could happen to Nikon.

First, you would end up having to use iTunes to transfer your photos to the computer, including via card reader.

Raws would be in a proprietry format only Aperture could read, as would video.

Apple would start suing anyone who made accessory parts for Nikon, including (probably especially) third party lenses.

Yeah, this would be good for Nikon.  NOT.
