I`m about to buy my first DSLR and the KM 5D was high on my list but since the news came out that KM are going to stop making cameras and that Sony will take over what is left of theyre technology and are going to be responsible for servicing KM hardware.

I`m really hesitating,what is going to happen with the KM lenses....or are there going to be only Sony lenses in the futur ?

Maybe i should get an Olympus E-500 or Nikon D50...i cannot make up my mind so can someone help me ?

Sony will continue using Minolta's lens mount so you don't have problems in that. And more likely it's just that Minolta's whole DSLR department changes name Sony to building's plate.

And I don't think Sony goes and changes mount in foreseeable future, from business perspective that would them shooting to own head with shotgun.

the km5d is an awesome entry level camera.. and with sony taking over, the longevity should be pretty solid..
