PS cameras - almost extinct. But for us "hobbyist" what does the future markets look like for the manufacturers. When I owned Nikons I read Tom Hogen and I think in one of his latest posts he hits on a key issue. Cameras are now so good the re-purchase cycle of most folks is going to be extended - additionally there are lots of very good cameras on the used market. What impact this will have on the various manufacturers will be interesting to see over the next few new product cycles. I believe the shake out is just starting and it will be interesting to see who survives. With the trend of dual IS making Panasonic and Olympus more dissimilar and the choice of what body harder, I wonder if there in the end there only will be one 43 body manufacture or will each have a niche (stills vs video) in the market place. For those who care Tom's latest thoughts do not look good for Nikon.
