Your thoughts?

If Apple buys Nikon then..

1, there will not be 7 or 8 models of DSLR like it was under Nikon management. There will be two models, the Nikon iCamera 5s, and 5c. But they are essentially the same anyway.

2, prices will be about 30% higher than Canon equivalent.

3, they will not have a memory card slot. It will have memories built in, you have to choose between 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB variants, with price increments of 100 dollar per variant.

4, they will not have a battery slot, because battery will also be built-in.

5, they will look good, for sure, but they will also be prone to cracks and scratches, so you will have to buy a casing - a product currently doesnt exist but will soon be a must for every camera.

6, you are not expected to use the same model for more than four years, just like you are not expect to use an iphone 3G in year 2013. if you do you will feel ashamed.

7. It would be white and lousy for street photography.

In the beginning was the rhythm but I had forgotten and was waiting for the beat.
