I also agree with the article, of all the camera makers I believe nikon is the weakest.

The econ triangle is like the photo triangle (Tv,Av,ISO), it is supply, demand, and price.

supply is up and demand is down, the price supports like MAP are going to collapse and once it starts, like a snowball it will pick up speed.

First there will be fire sales, prices are already starting to roll downhill (see sony a7)

Second there will be consolidation (reduction of supply), I see Sony+Oly, Fuji+Pana, Canon by itself and Nikon ??? (not sure).

From the interviews and my long experience translating corporate exec speak, I would say that Nikon execs have been in denial for a long time and now that the truth is dawning they are in a total panic. Trust me the president of Nikon is preparing 3 envelopes as we debate.

Of course, there could be a miracle and all will be well but I don't believe in the tooth fairy either!

The next 5 years are going to be very interesting.. and we get to enjoy it! Yay!
