Nikon only can compete with Canon because they have to drop all their prices. Otherwise Canon would kill them.
Exactly! In each price class from point and shoot to the top of the line SLR cameras, Nikon has to price themselves below Canon to compete.

However, in the mid range SLR bracket the Sony A77 rules the roost.

I don't know who is the most overrated, but can say that I think Nikon is the most desperate camera company. Their junk email is non stop and getting very tiring.

Nikon rules the industry and is the standard by which all other cameras are judged. Nothing but amateur photographers like canon.

Hasselblad and Leica "rule the industry"...Hasselblad in particular ...by the way the "good" Nikons (and others) use Leica lenses.

...and you don't need an expensive car to be a good driver, an expensive pc to be a good programmer and you don't need an expensive camera to be a good photographer...so what does the brand of camera have to do with what a pro might or might not use?

LMAO...I think your shrink needs to change your treatment regimen.
Nikon is in a steep decline. So tell us, what does Nikon have by way of compact cameras which will even come close to the Sony RX100?

Top 3 Camera Companies:
1. Sony 2. Canon. 3. Olympus
Bottom 3:
1. Nikon 2. Samsung 3. Fuji

I do a lot of photography at night, so I need a camera that can give you low noise at high ISO's. My Canon EOS 7D is perfect for that. Clean photos even at 6400 ISO.

Use them for book ends. That's about their only worthwhile use.

I loved Kodak when I grew up. Are they done for good or just going through reorganization? Recent management with this company was poor. I wonder if Nikon has changed management too. I used to love their cameras. Now they're near the bottom of my list.

I would have thought Nikon had enough pride to continue building good cameras despite all the bailouts and government freebies to Corporate America. I was dead wrong. This company is now a must to avoid. For those who sell their photographers on micro stock sites, avoid Dreamstime at all costs. They are total rip-off artists now and their site is dangerous in terms of computer viruses.

I'd like to see both Nikon and Dreamstime belly up within a year. Same with a lot of other companies but too many to mention here.

I hear ya Jimmy. I don't hate Nikon. But their cameras as of late have become substandard. I think they're a company in serious trouble. On the other hand Dreamstime is making money hand over foot and are treating everybody who does business with them like yesterday's garbage. They sell very low resolution photos to consumers from stuff they stole from photographers who aren't their regulars. Complaining to them is a total waste of time. They'll just ignore you. Last but not least their site will give you a computer virus.

So what happened to Straight Shooter? Reality finally sinking in? Maybe they can still use Nikon cameras for the background on portraits, as in blurry! lol

I hear Nikon is finally going to the RAW format on their compacts. They're only about 2 years behind their competitors. lol
