But is it killing the DSLR? I'm on the fence with that one. Even in my own daily life, I rarely grab the iphone for a photo. But when I do, it's there. Most of what people shoot doesn't demand or suggest a DSLR. It never really has, but now we have more choices.

That's you though. Most people don't leave the house with their cameras, but they always have their cell phones on them. The best camera is the one you have for the shot. So to move volume, I think camera companies really need to move to the new medium (phones).

IMO this is no different than the transition from film to digital. There are people who still shoot film, but would you say Nikon could have survived on those folks alone? No way.

More choice is definitely good... Nikon should be looking to offer as much choice as possible, IMO.
