Re: So Nikon a bit strapped and looking for the readies? Could be Polaroid Vs Kodak again.
Just what I was thinking. Nikon are too busy fighting with Canon over the higher end pro market ( D5 vs 1Dx2 ) , meanwhile Sony, Fuji, et all are stealing the middle ground with their lighter mirrorless kit. I'm about to turn in my 8 year old 5DM2 for a new bag of kit, getting on a bit and I'm seriously considering dumping DSLR and heading down the Sony route. I know a couple of pro's who've dumped their DSLR bodies for mirrorless kit and using a combination of original DSLR lenses with adapters and the mirrorless manufacturer lenses.
Not saying DSLR is dead yet but it's looking more like Canon and Nikon are going to get serioulsy squeezed by Sony/Fuji from below and Hassie/Phase ONE from above.
