As I have always said my switch to Fujifilm was initially due to Nikon being 
slow to deliver a replacement/update to the D300S. Once I had been exposed to 
the benefits of the Fujifilm X-System there has been no going back. If Nikon 
had released the D500 a few months earlier I might never have switched. Now I 
find myself with three Fujifim X-cameras, and 6 Fujinon lenses. That cash 
could just as easily have been spent on a D500, and some fresh Nikkor glass. 
Timing is everything, even in the release of cameras.
