Isn't it interesting that in the digital era that the individuality of cameras is label-deep? Not even skin deep! I know that Fujifilm is making Hasselblad's digital line, but I have no idea what else they're doing. I doubt that they'll buy either Leica or Olympus now. Digital cameras are just crazy. An OEM doesn't make a sensor anymore, so the manufacturer has to scramble to come out with a new version of their camera. With film, we just toss in a different roll. The camera is never obsolete, and the sensor is $5. With digital, the whole camera is obsolete a year down the road.

Such is the path the populace has chosen.
