Nikon discontinues analog cameras
I think this was kind of a shock for many of us – everybody saw this coming, but that it would happen so fast was quite a surprise.
“As a result of the new strategy Nikon will discontinue production of all lenses for large format cameras and enlarging lenses with sales of these products ceasing as soon as they run out of stock. This also applies to most of our film camera bodies, interchangeable manual focus lenses and related accessories. Although Nikon anticipates that the products will still be in retail distribution up to Summer 2006. ”
