As I was surfing through some photography blogs this morning I had noticed some more sad news. Leica announced this week that they have ceased production of the M7 rangefinder. Unlike Canon, Leica still has two other film cameras available, the MP and M-A available for sale, so all is not lost. This is a troubling trend as film is starting to make a comeback as more and more younger people make the switch back to analog photography or pick it up for the first time.
Let’s hope that this trend of discontinuing film cameras comes to an end as the field of film photography starts growing again. Though we should all limit our expectations on what we can expect as film will probably never be as dominant as it was.
