Holy Crap! Konica Minolta exists the camera business!!!!

Wow... just... wow... 8-O

Konica Minolta withdraw from camera business

I mean, I can sort of understand Nikon focusing on digital cameras, but Minolta exiting all together... 8-O

Sony will still make cameras that use the Minolta lens mount through a recent business venture... but still...

One of my favorite cameras ever was my Minolta DiMAGE A1 that I took everywhere, all across the US, China and Japan...

Hmm... this is now the second camera that I've owned, who's parent company has now exited the camera business. Minolta and Kyocera (I had the Kyocera SL400R).

The other cameras I've owned were by Nikon (my first digital camera, the Nikon CoolPix 950) and now Canon (my two current cameras). I think it's safe to say that those two companies will be around a while. :)
