Good for Nikon, better late than never.

Camera sales has plummeted to oblivion in 2013, it will only get worst @the end of 2014. It is important to have other DIVERSIFY business to sustain this market recession. Sony has TV, PS4, Moves, Musics, Insurance (most profitable unit); Panasonic has automotive, avionic, Professional Camcorders, and even toaster to keep it afloat.

Instead of conceding market to cellphones, I wish Japanese camera makers get serious about making a CELLPHONE. I want Canon Point/Shoot quality inside my cellphone! If you can't beat them, joint them.

No, you can't have canon P&S in your cellphone. But you can have cellphone in your P&S.
