Impact of mFT on Nikon DX line - probably not in the USA market
11

Everything Thom wrote is logical for photography enthusiasts.  But as for the mass market in USA, Joe and Jane Suburban:

1.  Know the two big names, Canon and Nikon.

2.  Seldom see 4/3 cameras in big box stores and the few they see are not emphasized by salespeople.

3.  Have a neighbor or relative who bought Nikon or Canon when he "became serious" about photography.  Joe and Jane will buy the same for social acceptability among their peer group.

4.  Do not care about all that large f-stop technical mumbo jumbo and are not interested in buying big full frame lenses - in fact will only buy the one kit lens and possibly a cheap, small aperture zoom lens.

5.  Can buy a Nikon DSLR with kit lens cheap.  That is a key factor for them.
