Re: Nikon Pricing Policy

Couple things:

  • through enforcing this policy, I suspect Nikon will not directly obtain ANY ADDITIONAL REVENUE. I think this aspect needs to be clearly understood in the discussion. I.e. my assumption is this does not affect the wholesale price paid by the dealer which is where Nikon themselves obtains their revenue.

  • somewhat unique to the U.S.A. market, you furthermore have this odd practice where if you buy an item out of state online, the buyer obtains an advantage of not having to pay local (state) taxes. This creates an uneven market negatively affecting local businesses. Highly odd to me why this is tolerated and seen as a "free market". Isn't this the diametric opposite of a "free market"?
