Konica Minolta...no more.
 
Enter Sony
"...Konica Minolta has today announced that it is withdrawing from the camera and photo business. They will be transferring assets related to their camera business to Sony who will continue to develop digital SLR's based around the Konica Minolta lens mount. Konica Minolta it appears will continue to work with Sony (a relationship announced last year) in the development of digital SLR's and lenses but they will not be branded as or be sold by Konica Minolta..." -DPReview CLICKY LINKY

I always wondered how/when Sonee would get into the D-SLR market.

No more Konica/no more Contax. They made great cameras. Oh, well. Now I wonder where I could get my Contax fixed if she happens to, 'er, break. :(

$349? for 6 megs is darn good. However, I won't go digital until my local lab goes bust! Do you know how many film cameras I own? I've lost track! :)

I like my Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2. . . it's not an SLR, but it only cost about $650 and works quite well. Too bad they aren't making this camera any more. . .

Sony has all ready announced their new Sony/Konica-Minolta line. I still remember when Sony first brought out their electronic dinky toys and transistor radios. Now that's going back. A bottle of pop was only 2 or 3 cents and movies were 15 cents.
