Imaging Resource Nikon interview: “will keep launching surprising and exciting products one after another”

Imaging Resource talked to a bunch of Nikon managers:

– Nikon does not expect the market to drop by 50% (like Canon predicted)
– Nikon will keep launching surprising and exciting products one after another
– Z-mount allows more symmetrical lens arrangement, so users will greatly benefit from the optical advantages.

There is also a lot of talk about the Z-mount tech but there is really nothing new there to see :)
