Bean counters have to account for this stuff

Nikon has deeper problems that can't be seen from the outside.

I read somewhere that Nikon mentioned that Df took so long because of the natural disasters. As for the other stuff, I think as Thom mentioned, it is more about turf wars within Nikon between their various divisions.

I don't buy Nikons excuse...

You can move a design & development unit to anybodies office outside the affected area

Manufacturing lines are different

The Df is assembled in Japan, in an area that was impacted by the Tsunami.

Read my words... manufacturing is assembling.... and that's different
