Re: If it works so well then why (1) redesign it each year, and (2) 50% off or more

which actually makes sense if you look into it closely because you can mount your cards in smartphones and tablets directly...

Not completely. No mini SD/micro SD card with any iOS device. Adapter available from Apple for SD cards.

This is an advantage if you have an Android or Windows Mobile device with a micro/mini SD card.

To any user with multiple SD cards or a computer with a SD card slot, this is a step away from universal access.

The V3 announcement and the micro/mini SD card choice was the trigger for a second V2 camera body (bought used). I would have accepted the micro/mini SD card IF the V3 had both a SD and  mini/micro SD card slots.

and you can make a smaller unit without finder out of the system and since the finder is part of the system it can be updated with a newer and better version


The V3 EVF with it's double lock seems to be a well engineered finder.

I hope Nikon will use this design as a universal accessory EVF... maybe for the P8000, future Nikon A cameras, or a mirrorless Nikon DX camera body.

Now if Nikon standardize battery and charger designs...
