Seemingly odd behaviors by both Canon and Nikon often (seems to me) can be traced back not to:

1. What real, living breathing customers want
2. What is likely to sell
3. What makes sense in context of an existing lens system

But rather:

1. What is the other company doing and how can the one ensure they aren't "one Upgraded" by the other.

The pricing on the Nikon 70-200mm f4 is a classic example...way, way too high. But don't get me started on the family of existing DX lenses and the lack of wide angle primes at any aperture.

Nikon has done a lot to really piss me off lately. But what can you do?

Not just that but the whole J1 thing. You want to use your Nikon lens on a new Nikon camera, fine. Buy a $250 mount. WTF!

Oh, and we're going to introduce 3 new FX sensor cameras this year, but they'll basically be the same thing inside with different resolutions.
