thanks Dave, nice info, and when I assisted late 80's pros told me 90% of pros were on Nikon. I was on Nikon
Fast forward 2002 and Canon comes out with 1ds full frame. Nikon took what 6 years to get full frame?  I think 90% pros then went to Canon.
How could Nikon be caught so flat footed with emergence of digital?

I've read that there is a Nikon F mount buried in the Hale Telescope somewhere (it's not the primary imaging system, which was large-format, and is now extremely custom digital). This lends credence to the scientific/engineering argument - lots of stuff we wouldn't normally call a "lens" has an F mount (sometimes a Pentax K mount).
