Lengthy interview with Nikon at CES 2011, not a single word on future products

If you were wondering what was going on in those Nikon meeting rooms during CES 2011, here is the one and only Nikon report from CES by Imaging-Resource in the form of an interview with Nikon's Senior Vice President David Lee. Kudos to Imaging-Resource who asked the right questions and tried on several occasions to extract some valuable info about future products. However, Mr. Lee was definitive with his answers: "we really never talk about future products before they're announced".

Few quotes from David Lee after the break:

"I think that there's a definite place in the market for both formats (DX and FX)."

On mirrorless cameras growth in the US market: "Right now we still have not seen a significant growth, I think, in what we would expect to see in comparison to other parts of the world."

"What we're seeing in the point-and-shoot business is that the next big thing is going to be about zoom range."

"We're moving to CMOS sensors in the point-and-shoot cameras."

"As technologies go forward, we're very active not only in our Capture NX software, but also in MyPictureTown."
