Re: "Obsolete" cameras: is it a serious concern?

Samsung is one example of a company that has stopped producing cameras. I believe that they no longer offer any service for existing cameras, so I guess they carried on offering some support for 3 - 4 years after the announcement (or lack thereof)

I had some Samsung kit before finding out they were going under and then after the news I carried on buying as there were some great bargains to be had. The lenses will probably be good for a long time to come and when the camera bodies fail I'll try my best to source replacements. Once it becomes financially prohibitive to carry on I'll have to concede and move systems.
