Re: Nikon's 5 year plan...

It is interesting to look at sales trends in Japan: (rankings vary a little depending where one searches but in general.)

2012 top ten mirror less digital:

1. Oly E-PL3

2. Sony NEX 5N

3. Canon EOS M

4. Oly E-PM1

5. Panny GF5

6. Nikon J1

7. Pentax Q (10?)

8. Sony NEX F3

9. Sony NEX C3

10. Oly E-PL5

Just a guess, the Olys will fall and the new FF Sonys will join the list. The new Pentax Q7 is reported to be a good seller there.

2012 DSLR top ten:

1. Can X5

2. Nik D5100

3. Nik D3100

4. Can 60D

5. Nik D7000

6. Can X4

7. Can X6i

8. Can 7D

9. Sony A65

10. Can X50

Again guessing that the new Pentax K3 (K30 and K5 are 13 & 14 resp.) will crack the top ten list in Japan and Can 70D, Nik D7100, Nik D5300 and maybe the New hybrid Nikon depending which category they put it in will join the list.

Doesn't seem like much of a shake up to me. YMMV.

Cheers.
