Re: other businesses

So, like most companies with a long history, they've transformed themselves successfully before. As you said, we'll see if they can do it again. I don't have a prediction, but I will say that their senior management has been much more able than it was in the 1990s -- Nikon is much better run than it was in the 1980s and 90s, and it's better run than several other high-end optical companies, so I think they've got a decent shot.

I'm not a Nikon shooter and don't have a dog in this fight, although I would like to see Nikon survive.  Your analysis here seems correct to me.  Nikon seems self-aware enough to weather this storm.  They may emerge smaller and leaner, but there's nothing wrong with that.
