Pentax to discontinue medium format cameras 645N II and 67II
from editor in chief at Thursday, March 16, 2006 - 09:04

Pentax Germany just informed its customers that the company will discontinue some items. This is especially true for the medium format cameras 645N II and 67II and some lenses, meaning that Pentax will completely abandon (analogue) medium format cameras:

Pentax Germany announced that the company will discontinue some items in June 2006. An excerpt with the most important items from this list:
smc FA J 18 - 35 mm / 4 ~ 5.6 AL
