Interesting. So their focusing on the high end digital SLR's, but no plans to diversify?

Incorrect. No more cameras. No more photo paper. No more film.

They're selling their stuff to Sony who will, allegedly, produce SLR's that are compatible with Minolta's mounting system. Sony doesn't currently offer any DSLR models so it's a sweet deal for them.

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

Oh yeah....on a related note, Nikon is ceasing production of all but two of it's film (35mm) camera bodies.
