They may believe they did a smart move with the D7100, but satisfied D7100 were not clamoring for an upgrade. They could have upgraded teh D300 instead. Let us hope it does not end up like the J1/V1, already a fire sale in less than a year. The net is, they have not delivered the expected goods, and they are in danger of seeing their stock crumble even more if they do not address the situation.
