Nikon to Discontinue D5600 and D3500

Late last month I posted that Nikon, hoping to build on the success of the new Z9, will largely be discontinuing its F-mount lenses and DSLR's to the extent that by 2023 they are anticipated to account for less than 5% of the company's total photography sales.  It's not surprising then to find that Nikon has already begun the process by announcing the discontinuance of two low-end DX cameras, the D5600 (lists for $550) and the D3500 (lists for $415).  It only makes sense that it would be the consumer hobbyist cameras that would be first to go, but doubtless hastening the process is the current chip shortage that has affected production of all camera models.
