Cracking camera but Nikon should have made it five years ago.

From Nikon:

Nikon digital SLR cameras that utilize the DX-format imaging sensor are designed as smaller camera bodies than those utilizing the larger FX-format sensor. Therefore, DX-format NIKKOR lenses can be made smaller as well. Because fewer materials are used, these lenses are less costly to produce.

The DX eq lens wouldn't be a 450mm f2.8 ..... the lens would still be a 300mm f2.8 but it would be for a DX sensor size and therefore lighter, smaller and cheaper - and still have 450mm eq reach. THAT is the whole point of DX lenses.

Yes I have moved on. I enjoy Nikon 1 for the reach, lightness and speed for my hobby shooting.

I still have to use employers Canon and Sony FF gear for weddings though.

It only took Nikon a lifetime to come out with the D500...and its still not in the shops... and the massive range of Nikon APSC lenses to go with it..... ?

Surely it can't be that hard for Sony to learn how to set up logical menus?

Canon, Nikon and Fuji can do it.... ( we won't mention Olympus) so there is plenty to learn and copy from.

Come on Sony, menus have been your achilles heel for far too long!

The real mystery to me is why anyone would invest in Yahoo.

Everything Yahoo touches crumbles into dust.

I moved away from Flickr when they implemented the disastrous 2013 update and would not be tempted back while Marissa Meyer is still involved.

.....now if Flickr got sold to someone who really wanted it and understood it....

Sonyshine: "While we suspect that - as usual - the comments beneath this interview will be packed with people criticizing us for not asking harder questions, and Nikon for not really answering some of the ones that we did ask"

Yup.

Another pointless interview from Nikon.

If they really want to leave their customer base feeling deflated and depressed then this is exactly how to do it....

Well with Canon, Nikon, Apple and Samsung as major clients I'm not sure Sony will be struggling too much :)

Wu Jiaqiu: as a Nikon 1 user, all i can say is that Nikon do not care at all about their customers, be honest or i'll spend my money elsewhere.

I am sick and tired of these noncommittal answers where things are hinted but nothing is said.

I understand nothing is guaranteed, but is a straight answer too much to expect?

Thom Hogan:

"Bloomberg late last week reported that Nikon is the most shorted of the Japanese tech stocks, with 16% of its outstanding shares covered by a short position as of last week.

Shorting a stock means that you borrow stock hoping to replace it at a lower price in the future. You’re betting that the company will be worth less in the future than it currently is."

Nikon not exactly thriving are they?

Which is a shame because a s a Nikon user I would love them to do well, really, really well.

You are assuming Nikon is a 'smart' company? :))

Well Abe did his best to legislate to increase women in the Japanese workforce. He at least recognised its a problem.

Nikon could take lessons from Kazoo Hirai who is always refreshingly open, forthcoming and enthusiastic. Its no wonder Sony is doing well these days....

to Suntan: Only in the plumbing industry when I used to import from Japan and Korea.

Its also interesting to note that Japanese mobile phone companies have struggled to innovate and market successfully outside of Japan too.
