Dead at 40

The venerable Pentax 67 series of cameras (the 67 and the 67II) are no more. In a notice posted on its web site, Pentax says the last 250 67iis will be sold and no longer be available after April. The Pentax 67 cameras were first released in 1969.

The text is in Japanese, but the gist of the release is that the Pentax 67II cameras, which were released in 1998 as an upgrade to the Pentax 67 medium format film cameras, will be discontinued. The company also is discontinuing the 645NII cameras.
