Konica Minolta Bails from the Camera Market

maxxum7d.jpgI know this is a few Days old, but Oh Wow, Konica Minolta threw in the towel in the Camera Arena! For me, this is shocking.

My experience with Minolta goes back to my Minolta X-700, a fine SLR with advanced features in it’s time. I spent several years using my X-700, a camera Ken Rockwell calls

Minolta’s best mass market manual focus camera, ever.

I’m not familiar with Konica Minolta’s Current Digital line, but I bet there all good quality cameras.

Here are some articles regarding the news:
