Alpha series DSLR, reborn.

Konica Minolta sold it's camera technologies to Sony last year and backed out of the camera market. Minolta was once a highly recognised brand, but has been suffering for the last few years. At some point, it was bought by Konica, and now it's assets sold to Sony.

Sony has just anounced that the sony branded DSLRs well be marketed under the "logo" moniker, and the first products, with Minolta's alpha-lens-mount system, will be avaliable this summer. More choices is always better for any market. So it's a good thing that Minolta's ledgend won't be going away. Can't wait to see what Sony will do with DSLRs.
