As long as Nikon refuse to build compelling products for its users to upgrade to, I don’t see this trend changing. The D780 improved too little over the D750 and now it appears that the D6 improves too little over the D5.

I sincerely hope that Nikon fix the problems they currently have with the Z cameras in the next product generation because otherwise there really is nowhere for their current DSLR user base to go. Both their mirrorless and updated DSLR’s offerings are just not improved enough over existing cameras to warrant buying into IMHO.

I do not buy cameras to replace them. I buy them for what they are and what they do for me. I’ve used the same model of Pentax 67 for 20 years.  Two  bodies are still active while  two have been retired and rebuilt into panorama cameras. I have never had a lens fail or be damaged.

I believe gear and light should be a constant and only content should be the variable. If you’re constantly breaking in new equipment that methodology is impossible.

After  shooting with a Nikon D810 for four years I am confident that as long as I have the content  and the light the camera will always perform exactly as I would have it .

I skipped the D850  but I will review the next iteration,  say with 61 megapixels , and if it doesn’t pan out I’ll be Just fine. There will be options out there 5 to 10 years down the road -who’s to say what those options might be.

if Nikon cannot be competitive as a mass marketer then I have no doubt it could consolidate and work with the same numbers as Leica or Rolex.
