Forks in the Road

  According to reports back in the summer, Nikon will be exiting the DSLR market. Nikon for their part, has denied it but just following the trajectory of the camera market, it's long been clear that they are going to do it at some point. It's a matter of when, not if. Of course this makes me slightly uneasy about my own future with my cameras. I invested in Nikon DSLRs and I'm not nuts about being on a dead end platform.  But for now, I'm just going to hold tight. What I have is working fine and it is not holding me back in any way, so I'm in no hurry because it's going to be an expensive switch when the time comes. Eventually I'll need to upgrade because something will stop working or my gear will be so far behind the state of the art that I feel limited by it. But I'm not there yet and there's no point in spending a bunch of money now when I'm satisfied with what I have. I figure I'm probably good for at least 5 or 6 years before that hap
