TTJ, I'm always smiling when people say, a company is not listening to the market. And mean "the company is not listening to me and some people I know"
...What I find irritating is how the technology is there to be used but then is intentionally disabled...

@TTJ: It's not only a rambling, but also far too long article, as your response as well. As to what I read or not - speak for yourself. I've not the duty to read every boring, useless list of what Nikon does bad - that is subjective. And if you need to judge other people, why not giving a good example and mind your own tone? It's not my fault, that you can't deal with humour or don't have a sense for. I just feel sorry for you, but never mind.
Be willing to change brands
Pair down that collection of gear that you no longer use. Buy and keep only those lenses that you get value from. Many serious amateurs cringe at the idea of switching brands – for a good reason. But if you look behind some of their concerns, part of this fear is that they have to deal with the growing collection of lenses they rarely use. Every now and then, ask yourself “How much value am I getting from this lens, flash, or other piece of equipment?”. If you find that a given piece of gear spends more time on the shelf than on your camera? Sell it. Having a stable of good gear that actually gets used thus serves two purposes: 1) It preserves your hard earned money, and 2) If and when you decide to switch brands because situations change and you are no longer with the products and service of your existing brands, you will have a much easier time.Read more: http://photographylife.com/nikon-quality-assurance-and-marketing-gone-wrong#ixzz2OFpHTbyR
