I half agree. I don't care that they've not gone AF like Nikon and Canon.
But i do think they are going to need to get a digital body like Nikon
and Canon has to stay more so in the ballgame.
How small of a market can a company afford to be in?
In the whole world there will be somebody in the next year or so that
will take on the job. Making a Digital Rd.
