Re: Kudos to Nikon for plugging the hole

You're shilling again.  If eBay horders and local shops want to buy up a bunch of Nikon bits and pieces, the rational approach by Nikon would be 'lets make some more of them'.  That way they make a bit more money and have happy customers.

It really isn't clear who benefits with the current policy.  It is engendering quite a bit of bad press from exactly the people you want to be supportive - the pros / heavy users / people who buy Nikon stuff year in and year out.  It's like they want to pretend they are in a commodity business, just build a bunch of cheap widgets and when it breaks, toss it.

That can work for coat hangers and even to some extent for cell phones.  For $2000 - $6000 cameras and $1000 - $10000 lenses, not so much.
