Come on, they didn't invent the cure for cancer

Look, I do have several patents myself and I'm very respectful of Intellectual Property but these devices have been in the market since the D100 came out and much earlier with the motor. There isn't a bit of innovation or idea here. Most you can say is that the industrial design (the look) has been copied. Nikon is selling them at an outrageous price and this open up the door to other makers that are selling to people that is probably making an ocasional use and they can't pay all that money for this piece of plastic. I can agree with you that these products should be stop at the border for the stealing of the industrial design but nothing more than that really, they have been around for ever.
