People here may get mad, but I wouldn't switch to Nikon now. The company is seriously on the ropes.

The switch you are talking about is a big switch, hoping for a least some years of stability.

The competing cameras are just as good, and picking Nikon now makes no sense. Look at the stock ticker before you decide.

It's not quite that simple though.

Nikon also has far more incentive to support their consumer/professional imaging divisions whereas Canon and Sony are both more heavily diversified into other industries such that they can simply drop their imaging divisions if it isn't profitable enough. Nikon, either saves their imaging division, suddenly increases their diversification, or goes under.

I could see Sony dropping camera division much the same as Samsung, They would probably sell it off, Perhaps Nikon could buy them and improve the ergonomics.
