(Links Below) There's lots of news this week about Nikon's bad numbers. Join me as I chat with Rick LePage of Complete Digital Photography. Rick's been an industry insider for as long as I've been running around with cameras and together we'll share why we don't think Nikon shooters need to get too worried just yet. We'll talk about the entire photo industry, the changes that are happening in it and exciting times ahead. I've also got a couple of good background articles linked below. Enjoy.
