"The agreement would not have been possible without our contractual commitment from Kyocera Corporation and their long term goal of continuing distribution of Contax products and Carl Zeiss T* lenses to professional users."

This bodes well for my investment in Contax 645 equipment, though I wonder what they mean by "to professional users". Which other cameras in their line do they consider "professional"? Hopefully the G2 and N1 are included.

The cinical side of me says I'll believe their long term commitment when I see a Contax 645 Mark II or one of the oft-promised leaf shutter lenses or the telephoto zoom lens actually appear. Otherwise maybe they're still trying to unload a huge backlog of built, but not bought cameras.
Take care,
Tom
