I think you see that most of the areas were camera are still being made are those were even used bodies still sell at a premium.

I'd say whats really killed the market for SLR's at 35mm and 120 is that there is so much used stock out there that prices are very depressed to the degree its not economical to produce new stock even if theres a market out there.

Again I wonder whether we might start to see some shift here as prices for used stock in certain areas are climbing, things like premium 35mm compacts.

Bellamy Hunt (Japan Camera Hunter) has previously stated that he was planning on producing a 35mm premium compact ( https://petapixel.com/2017/09/25/japan-camera-hunter-making-new-premium-35mm-compact-camera/ ).  But I’ve never seen any suggestion that it would be cheap, more like the £500 -£1,000 bracket.  Of course that was in 2017.
