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.

I'm assuming you are referring to music file interaction with iTunes. So what? ITunes is a very powerful and easy to use app to organize and purchase your music. You also do not need to buy your music only from iTunes.

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

Apple doesn't use proprietary video or audio.

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

Apple's mobile products have by far the most third party accessories available to them.

Yeah, this would be good for Nikon. NOT.

You sound like one of those Android using Apple hating people you run into on some tech sites. The vast majority being ignorant and irrational when it comes to things Apple related.

Try and gain a bit of perspective, these are simply electronics. When you die they will mean nothing.
