    Because the Japanese understand. At least some of them (or did they demote the SLT to a non-dslr status?).

      No, it’s just not selling. Sony Alpha might be the next system to go… which would be quite sad, last of Minolta’s heritage disappearing 🙁

        I’ve looked at the Japanese Sony site. They are still on there but stuck at the bottom of the page. I think they are just making them for more traditional markets now like US and Europe.

        RIP Minolta. 🙁
