On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 article (230 comments in total)

I hope that Nikon can solve this problem well. I prefer Nikon as an independent company, generating new products and competing than concentrating more in fewer hands.
It is difficult to compete with companies the size of Samsung, Sony and Canon.
Unfortunately, I think that the Chinese government picked Nikon as an example.
I prefer to keep different makers available to the general public, it is better for of us all. I don't like a world where only very large companies have the right to sell their products with no real competition. (Like Boeing and Airbus, for example).

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1514 comments in total)

I have used several cameras, but when I am travelling and want to enjoy my trip. I use a very simple point an shoot camera. The canon SX260.
I have an RX 100, but it doesn't have the zoom of the SX260 a camera that is about the same size of the RX100. Most of the time I need the flexibility of the SX260 and its portability. The big cameras that I have I decided not to take to my trips, they are cumbersome to use, too many lenses and a lot of preparation to take a picture.

On Photokina 2012: Interview - Stephan Schulz of Leica article (221 comments in total)

My best wishes for Leica, I hope it can survive in this competitive world, where they are facing huge companies like Nikon (is part of the Mitusbishi group, one of the largest in the world), Canon is huge by itself, Sony is another huge corporation,
Samsung is another giant group. I truly like to see small companies developing a niche market.
As to photography, it is important to keep more options open, and Leica is doing its part. Their prices are more related to their small scale than anything else.
