Upload & Sell: Off
Nikon made a business decision.
From a practical standpoint, a user petition isn't going to do anything.
What would make a difference would be a class action suit.
Don't get me wrong, I'm on the side of the user and think the Nikon decision is a
VERY BAD ONE !
Even if 10,000 Nikon users signed the petition, I would bet they would ignore it.
Well you are quite wrong. Filing a class action suite would do nothing but get an instant dismissal. They are unfortunately acting within their documented rights under US law. The petition is a good idea but will not carry much weight with them. They are not customer sensitive as they have proved many times in their history and quite recently with the D800 AF issue. The facts here needs to be moved into the public limelight through internet forums, online articles, and newpapers. In other words the power of the press to alert and angry the buying public. The other movement needs to be by their dealer network and particularly the biggest dealers if they have the guts. Nikon, Canon, etc, will only react to one thing, lost revenue. If people stop buying their equipment then and only then will they listen. Until then we are all screwed quite literally. I fully agree with Roger Ciala's comments and concerns.
