Nikon had lens compatibility lists for their cameras forever.
Nobody ever copmplained before.

The issue was hardly ever on this scale before, was it?

Actually before everybody always said how good nikon was because
they dont have compatibility issues like canon going to EF mount
yet nikon had compatibility issues that differ from camera to camera

But these are documented.

Actually no, the third party lens compatibility is NOT documented anywhere except possibly by the lens maker. Besides the compatability issues generally apply to older glass. Very few current third party lenses for Nikon mount have issues on most Nikon bodies AFAIK. And all current 3rd party Canon mount lenses work on the 400D.

Canon took a calculated risk with the EF mount because engineering wise they had little choice. It causes a lot of pain even so.

This on the other hand is just a marketing decision. Its not something I expected from Nikon.

It isnt like you'd expect to be able to mount any size wheel on
your car. You look which ones will fit and those are the ones you
get

Thats a poor analogy. This is more like saying you can only use 1 brand of tyre on your car, and it happens to be the most expensive one.

But for some people that may require too much intelligence to
figure out ...

Whats to figure out exactly?
