Bean counters have to account for this stuff

Nikon has deeper problems that can't be seen from the outside.

I read somewhere that Nikon mentioned that Df took so long because of the natural disasters. As for the other stuff, I think as Thom mentioned, it is more about turf wars within Nikon between their various divisions.

I don't buy Nikons excuse...

You can move a design & development unit to anybodies office outside the affected area

Manufacturing lines are different

The Df is assembled in Japan, in an area that was impacted by the Tsunami.
