Thom makes some good points, but should get back to talking about photography and equipment, on which he is an absolute expert.

His market assessments always smack of someone who thinks they should be more important than they are with the major camera manufacturers.

The same can be said of "Major Camera Manufacturers" who think they know better than their consumers and therefore they don't listen to them. Thom has his pulse on consumers, he directly answers e-mails from readers, he runs several training seminars and workshops per year, show me one Nikon executive who does the same with his customers? Advantage Thom.

Are you comparing a guy who runs a website to an executive from a company?

Yes, and he is not just 'A Guy", he's a photographer with over two decades of experience and he has tested and used just about every piece of Nikon gear that has been created in the past 20-years; I dare you to find one Nikon executive who has done the same.

Do you actually think their roles are the same?

No, Nikon executive role is to make money for the company by any means necessary, Thoms role is to express his honest opinion whether you like it orĀ  not

Thom can blather on all he likes.....companies do listen to their customers....not Thom.

Really? Take the pepsi challenge, send an e-mail to Thom and then send an E-Mail to Tokyo attn VP of product development, let's see who answers your e-mail first.
