    I think it’s very dangerous thinking for a company like Nikon to just assume that they “cannot change” something critical which may be hindering their competitiveness.

    This has gotten the company in trouble a number of times, in particular at times when Canon ended-up leapfrogging them in the professional photographer market. Canon’s willingness to “make the jump to new technology” put Nikon on their back foot in the pro market starting in 1987 when the EF mount was first released, and particularly after the EOS-1 appeared in 1989. I’d argue that Nikon has been on the defensive ever since, in the pro market. (Don’t get me wrong – I love the fact I can use my old AI lenses on new bodies without an adapter – but by the same token I think that also holds them back in some ways.)

    Something seems to have changed recently tho – perhaps the decline in the silicon lithography business (now dominated by a European company at the highest levels of that business) and the decline of the point-and-shoot market has lit a fire under Nikon management to charge hard on their core DSLR products and swallow a bit of pride in the pursuit of that. So they seem to have started to listen more to user demands, and have started copying a variety of tech that Canon has had for years, to stop the competitive gap from increasing. (Electronic diaphragms, fluorite telephoto elements, new silent stepper AF motors, better video functionality, adjustable LCD displays, diffractive optics, etc etc)
