Sony D-SLR, don’t hold your breath!

Konica-MinoltaThe comments reported by PhotoReporter.com are really worrying for the future of the existing Digital Single Lens Reflex (D-SLR) Konica-Minolta line.

It appears that Sony thinks that they should move from the existing KM products toward a more Sony RD1-type of cameras. It seems to announce replacement of mechanical parts by electronic solutions (you can expect to loose quickly the exceptionally good AcuteMate viewfinder). The “niche world of professionals” may be indicated that we, prosumers, may be out of our waters.
