KatzEye Optical (Focusing Screens) going out of business

Katz Eye Optical is going out of business. I looked this morning to see if they had screens for the new K-2s yet and this is what I saw.

Dear fellow photographer,

After over a decade of making focusing screens, it is time for the founders of KatzEye™ Optics to move on to different ventures. It has been our great pleasure and honor to meet and support so many wonderful photographers over the years and we will miss you all greatly. We are currently in negotiations with one of our partner companies to acquire KatzEye and keep our products available. Hopefully an announcement about the success of those negotiations will be available early the week of March 23rd.

Please be assured that all orders currently on the books are being processed as quickly as possible and all will be shipped within the next 7-10 days. Our customer support will be continue to be available as well - we still stand behind every product we shipped. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us

Thank you for your patronage and your many shared photos and kudos over the years - your support made KatzEye™ happen! Best wishes in all that you do, and may the universe favor you with abundant and beautiful photo opportunities!

Warmest Regards,
The KatzEye™ Optics Team

NaCl(I really liked the fact that they offered professional installation and bench tested the cameras b4 shipping them out again)H2O
