short Yahoo article on Konica Minolta.

article

not entriely surprising, i started with a minolta camera so its a lil sad. this is how the industry is going to shift. i believe Nikon has already declared that they are not making film cameras anymore too.
Nikon D3, 17-35mm f/2.8, 35-70mm f/2.8, 50mm 1.8, 70-300mm VR

Its a sad story. Hopefully minolta mount will survive under the name of sony. Maybe sony will have a better marketing strategy and rise a real cometition against C and N in the dSLR market.

Well i just switched systems from minolta(been shooting minolta for 15years), to nikon with the purchass of a d200(still waiting for it to come in). Kind of thought the writing was on the wall when the independant lens makers stopped supporting minolta lens mounts.

Kind of sad , i alway thought minolta was a great value for the price
