As to "trusting" the manufacturers: you've got to be kidding. They are not charitable organizations, they are for-profit businesses. When they can, they will do whatever they think will make them most money in the long run. When they are squeezed, they will do whatever they have to to survive. Neither path includes any kind of altruism other than the hopes that building loyal customers will make them more money in the long run.

Yes, it is not a matter of trust and Hogan should not put it that way.

It is a matter of confidence the buyer can reasonably have going forward and it is not a matter of brand so much as success. Can a buyer be confident in ongoing development of Nikon 1? EOS-M?
