Bambi24: The fact is that ASML and Carl Zeiss are decimating Nikon in the lithography business

It took a while, but ASML now has EUV up and running, uptime, power and wafer output is where it should be. Engineers at ASML, IMEC and Intel say EUV is ready. Thousands of engineers from Intel / TSMC have gone through training programs. 21 EUV machinese have been sold now. Nikon's tech is now outdated, too much patterning, useless at sub 7nm.

This is Nikon's cheap shot at European tech firms, Nikon's final breath in lithography, a company that is now a patent troll. Europe broke through Japan's protectionism with superior tech and both ASML and Zeiss deserve credit, they have turned the lithography business upside down in 15 years. ASML is unstoppable, EUV is taking off whether Nikon wants it or not.

VR 😉

@Fujica
I believe Virtualreality is right, ASML is very important to the semiconductor industry but not as important or reliable as Teradyne, Adventist, Advanced Dicing Technologies, Plasma-Therm or Tokyo Electron

Petrogel: As a long term Nikon user (F-501 1987 or 1988 -i can't clearly remember-) i would expect from Nikon to present a Full Frame or an APS-C (or even both) retro look rangefinders, let's say a Digital Nikon SP version (not 1" sensor) , that would change a lot of things.
But i'm afraid that "the pie is already cut up".

I'm afraid that would create an oligopoly, on one hand those two could dominate the market, on the other hand that would be bad for competition, therefore our pockets

Don't forget the "Nikon L35AF-2 QD" this i've enjoyed it most, 35mm f2,8 (HAD IT EVERYWHERE)
something like Fujifilm X100

NCB: 20Mp a move in the right direction; easily enough for DX.

Wonder if this heralds a move away from Sony sensors. Maybe a good idea for a lot of reasons.

I think that shows the new direction Nikon is heading to, an upgrade for the 7000 series. So what is left is to wait and see.

Well if you think Windows is fine for you, that is great

I can not tell you about other people, i am a mac user but i also have PCs and windows Tablets and laptops, i have tried to install hacintosh on my PC just to be able to run some programs i also use on my macbook and my iMac.
Aperture and Final Cut pro are a couple of programs that are not available for windows but even Premiere, Photoshop or Lightroom are working smoother compared to windows.

-OS X is a lot more secure compared to Windows (never had installed antivirus never had a problem with it) plus when i am sitting down to do my job, i never had to worry about DLL's that were not working . So that was the main reason i've tried several times to install Hakintosh but unfortunately always something was not working (something i must have been doing wrong ).

-Windows 10 is a smooth OS compared to earlier versions but nothing like OS X

If they could only preinstall hackintosh  for me that would be great 😉

@agrumpyoldsod you are right, what i meant was, if someone could install OS X like he can with windows for example, a dvd or download a version from a site being fully compatible with the parts installed in.

if i have to try hackintosh on an OS X compatible PC (having the same parts) why not buy an Apple (it'll cost the same amount of money plus it'll look better )

@ onlooker you're right my mistake SARB033
@ Richard that's why i bought it, it was the best formal-sport watch i've ever tried on, plus the perfect size for my wrist.
I can not tell if have lost it or it got stolen...............
