Pentax discontinues 67II & 645NII

Looks like the end of the road for the Pentax 67II. On 24 March, 2009, Pentax announced the end of production of the 67II. They'll make 250 more. The 645NII is also being discontinued, but 645 lenses will remain in production, which seems to indicate that the 645D will finally make it into production.

Hello,
Where did you see these news ?? do you have a link to share. I would interested in buying a new P67II.
I checked the Pentax website and on 24 March 2009 news, they only talk about the 645Digital.

Regards

Sorry, I don't have the link, I believe it was on the Pentax Japan website. If you want a new 67II body, try Tin Cheung Cameras in Hong Kong. I recently bought a new 67 300/4 EDIF from them. They were very good to deal with, and I had my lens in less than a week. Before ordering, email them to make sure they have it in stock.

You're right, it was on the Japanese version of the Japanese site. The English version of the Japanese website does not have the same news !!
Thanks for the link to Tin Cheung Cameras, I will check with them. Hope that I'll can afford to buy one of the last !!
