Wow! This is a shocker! Minolta is getting out of the camera business. Read the press release here: http://konicaminolta.com/releases/2006/0119_03_01.html

It's OK, Sony will take over and a new dSLR will be out by summer and it will use all current KM lenses.

That's sad, but I guess time marches on. Still use my 35 year old SRT-101 as my film camera. Many great shots with the old Minolta.

Hey, Sony, what about adopting SD cards and AS technology from KM - even for bread-and-butter P&S cams?:blah:
