Everyone keeps talking about dropping dSLR sales, but what people forget is before digital there was a LOT more competition, and people kept their cameras for decades instead of months...we are just starting to return to that trend where people kept their cameras longer, and Nikon (like every other brand) will have to get used to the bloated sales returning to normal levels!

I totally agree. The camera manufacturers have been cresting a wave for a long time. That wave will eventually flatten out and the guys at the plant will talk about the good ol' days of when the plant was twice the size with 3 times the co workers. The big players won't disappear, they will just go back to pre 'gold rush days'.
Just like Levi's jeans post the 1980's..
