I don't care as long as they don't discontinue their film scanners.

I read somewhere today that they are dropping their film camera line. I have to look for the link---I think it was on Yahoo news.

So, are their scanners any good? I snagged a Minolta Scan-Dual lV a while back. I'm sure I paid too much for it because I bought it from Toronto, Canada. They were selling for half of what I paid for it in the USA.

Maybe Cosina/Zeiss will start making Zeiss lenses for old Canon film cameras.
