The power of concerted effort by the predominantly sensible users of Nikon must have got up Nikons nose as they pulled their sponsorship. Obviuosly bid not want to be hit with a"Canon"! Clearly this not one of their better forays into sponsorship and as you sow so shall ye reap. He said viewing the thread through his Nikon lensed specs! Let's hope they don't sponsor any more nasties like rodeos and the like! Or I might have to dig out my Leica or Fuji gear or even Hasselblad them!
