I have heard that Yashica, Contax and Kyocera cameras will no longer be manufactured? Yashica production stopped awhile ago but I figured the other names would be arround for some time?

Hi, Normc,

We are having this discussion right now on the Kyocera/Yashica forum!

But yep it's true Kyocera will stop making all cameras by the end of 2005.

Very sad, have been told it's nothing to do with money but "Market -led" forces.

Whatever that means.

Just hope someone buys them out and carries on, most of us on the forum have the M410R ultra-zoom and we all think it's a fantastic camera, which is very under rated.

If you take a look at the forum you will see alot more info.
