A bit of history: Nikon was originally called Nippon Kogaku KK. So the pronunciation should be obvious now. Canon was originally called Kwanon, named after the Goddess of Mercy, what we commonly called Guan Yin.

yup, the Japanese will call it "nee-kon" while the foreigners will call it "nye-con"

Who cares? This is a pointless thread, should be kopitiam with some of the others, but this is just lame!

Different people say it in different ways, im sure even you figured that out, so why does it matter how people say it?
