Another One Bites the Dust

Mamiya yesterday joined the ranks of numerous other longstanding photographic companies, announcing that they're done with some aspect of their company. Adios to Mamiya cameras. I have to say this one came as somewhat of a shock. Konica-Minolta had been in awful shape, but Mamiya had their high-end niche carved out. Though they were slow to get on the digital train, the "ZD" system they finally did come up with looked spectacular (albeit entirely out of my income bracket).

As is the case with K-M, Mamiya sold the division off rather than simply letting the axe fall. We'll see what comes of it. Hopefully more than has come of Konica-Minolta cameras since their announcement.

So long as they keep to producing PocketWizards and Sekonic light meters, I couldn't care less what Mamiya does with the rest of their business.
