Strange that both the Kyocera & Zeiss stories actually come from Press Releases and interviews and are not originally from the internet.
These two companies know far more than ToCad who are one of many worldwide distributiors and have more of an interest in ensuring their customer keep ordering Contax equipment in the short term.
The AP story is correctly dated, UK magazines are typically released before their cover date, in the case of AP its cover date is the Saturday of the week its released in.
The article is quite clearly accurate. And it is quite possible Contax will remain, almost certainly not manyfactured by Kyocera.
