Yes, Gannet has been in the transition to Sony for some time now. The Nikon replacements probably were hand me downs from papers already moved to Sony. That's what they're doing around here. When the Indy Star moved to Sony the smaller Gannet papers around the state got their old Canon equipment. Eventually all Gannet papers will all be Sony.A friend who shoots for a Gannett owned local newspaper (and who also provides national Gannett coverage for the major college football team in his local paper's hometown) recently had his Canon gear (most of which had been around since before Gannett purchased the newspaper) replaced with Nikon, being told the long-term plan was to go with Sony.
