tugela Posted February 27, 2017 Share Posted February 27, 2017 The main problem Nikon have (one that is shared by Canon and a few of the other minor players) is that they do not have access to state of the art processors like Sony and Panasonic do. As a result they will not be able to compete effectively when it comes to cutting edge mirrorless designs. They have to rely on older technology used in DSLR systems to have advanced products, and those are pretty mature where game changer improvements are unlikely. Sony and Panasonic have the basic tools at their disposal that allows them to take big steps forward with every iteration, whereas the tool set available to Nikon only allows them to take small steps forward. At some point those small steps are going to leave them so far behind that people will abandon the mark and move to something else, and that something else will very likely have the word "Sony" or "Panasonic" on the faceplate. In the long run Nikon may end up being a lens manufacturer, but even there they face stiff competition from more forward thinking companies.
