Ah well. They were worn out anyway. Would have been nice if my two year lease was done. When it is, we'll have to pay a buy out to the leasing company. Cameras used to be good for 5 years before they were abandoned by the mother ship. Not no mo!

Times have changed. Think of how long the PD-150 through PD-170 lasted as a line and that still may have been shorter than the old BetaSP cameras.

Keep in mind that a new business model may simply mean shorter lifespan in lower end cameras. It's easier to replace a $6000 camera in two years than a $30,000 camera. It may also be with faster turnovers, the frequent replacement may make up for lower price. If $6K camera sells twice as much and is updated 3 times in the same span as the $30K camera, you have (2x$6k)3=$36K . . . which is more than $30K.

This may well be the reason the EX came into existence despite the risk that it would eat into the sales of the F series cameras.

Hope the next one is a 12 megapixel or higher sensor... :)

The EX1 has NOT been discontinued. It was a Web site error on the part of the folks at B&H.
