To top off this picture of unbridled arrogance, Nikon released that long tome not long ago on how the mirrorless market was not worth considering.

They also said they wouldn't do full frame at one point in time.

Nikon never made such a statement. At various times in the early and mid 2000s, Nikon managers said the company had no current plans to make a full-frame DSLR.

Companies make statements like that all the time, and it has a very specific meaning -- it means no decision to go into production has been made. It emphatically does not mean that a decision to never produce a product has been made. No company would tie their own hands that way, not internally and not externally.

Many people on the Internet interpreted "we have no plans" as "we will never make". Not the same, as anyone who has ever worked for a manufacturing firm should know.
