    I agree that if anyone did it it would be Cosina, but I don't think you'll see anymore for a time, if ever. The world economy is wounded and many potential buyers have been taken off the list from the upheaval of various economies. It would take a big resurgence in analog photography in a country such as Japan before you might see another reasonably spec'd one hit the market, and then how could you really supersede what has been brought to market already. The glory days of one oneupmanship is over for analog cameras but still yet to be decided for digital. I believe it would take a film camera with a digital preview to cause enough excitement to garner any attention for sales; Perhaps a well spec'd film P&S for $150 might prove more profitable. Actually tho, our biggest concern is the continuing disappearance of film varieties from the shelves.

    So you're the one. Will you PLEASE stop bidding against me.

    Can you give us a model number. I would love to have one of these.

In a nutshell, I couldn't give a two hoots if another new camera is never released with a huge glut of beauties just waiting to be snapped up. I'm very happy with my 1994 vintage workhorses and picking up occasional gems from years ago.
    Well, no one NEEDs a new slr, but there are some useful features that never made it into film cameras. One example would be automatic reciprocity failure compensation.

    What about automatic composition improvement just before the shutter is fired?

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Maybe a warning light (and/or a polite buzzer) to advise the photographer when bending over for low scenes is likely to cause back pain.

    I didn't think that I'd ever see vinyl back in production, but there they were: New pressings of 12-inch 33 1/3 rpm albums for sale at Barnes & Noble.
    Actually in the underground music realm (electronic music, hip hop, etc.) vinyl has been continually pressed for quite a while now. It didn't just come back (albeit to pop music maybe).
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
