"Nikon and NX3"

I sent Nikon an e-mail, basically asking if, given Adobe's apparent determination to alienate a large portion of its customer base, they would look to restart NX development. Here are the first two paragraphs of their reply...

"I would like to thank you for your suggestion to improve Nikon's editing software Capture NX, by incorporating different imaging abilities as you outlined in your email.

I can provide the idea for the improvement of Capture NX, to create an improved editing suite called Capture NX3, to the Nikon Design and Functionality Department. This means that Nikon Design and Functionality Department will take this suggestion into account and will consider all possibilities of manufacturing and selling a software suit as you suggested."

...which reads to me like...

"We have no intention of making NX3 but, because you've asked, we will pretend to look at it before we officially reject the idea"

That's probably that, then.

Well, interpretation is in the eyes (and mind) of the beholder.

To me it says absolutely nothing, which is precisely what I would expect almost any company to say about how they intend to develop their software product.

But on the bright side, you got a reply!

You're right, at least I did get a reply!

What I'd hoped for is something that said "It's already being looked at", but I suppose we'll see.

I'm still not hopeful, mind you.

I would keep in mind that you're not exchanging e-mails with a senior leader in Nikon. The person who responded is most likely a help desk person and may not even work for the company.

You've obviously had more pleasant experiences with Nikon support than I have. For me, this response is better than my typical response. I have to at least give them credit for a nicer answer. If I had sent a similar message, I would have gotten something like this:

"All of our products are available for sale through authorized dealers. We hope that you like our products as you are very important to us. If this did not answer your question, you can submit an update online or call us."

Clearly, Eric, I possess a charm that you lack

I will say though that, after those two paragraphs, it gets very auto-generated very quickly.

I think you would have received a similar response if you had asked whether Nikon were considering building an 800mm f/1.2 lens.
