Well, if you are into wildlife as I suspect most people are, buy a different brand the next time you change a camera or lens. I´m sure Nikon will get the message.

I doubt it Stephen.
Nikon is a business, after all.
Producing scopes for rifles must be a pretty small part of Nikon's operation whilst Nikon themselves are, I believe, a small part of a much larger concern (Mitsubishi?).
A very few newcomers who've yet to choose a camera might be swayed perhaps but those of us that already use Nikon gear are hardly likely to bin it all and replace it with another manufacturer's version because of this.

Not suggesting anyone should bin their gear and buy another brand, just highlighting the hypocrisy of a company that claims to be “at the heart of nature”.

Though to be fair, if we searched hard enough I'm sure we could all find stories highlighting the hypocrisy of other brands too, it's jiust that this one caught my eye in today's i newspaper
