There have been some rumors that Leica was to discontinue several lenses. But now they have been confirmed. Seven of Leica M lenses are being discontinued, along with 13 other accessories such as lens hoods, lens caps and filter carriers.
According to the Nikon Japan website, both the Nikon D610 and Nikon D810 DSLRs have now been officially moved over to the discontinued list. Rumours of the D610 not seeing a replacement model go back as far as last December, and with it being added to the discontinued list now without a new model being announced, it looks like this is the end of the line for the D6x0 series bodies.
The Nikon D810 has also been discontinued, which isn’t much of a surprise. While the D810 is still a pretty formidable camera, many have switched the D850 or the Z7 (essentially a mirrorless continuation of that line), so dropping it is pretty logical in this case.
After 33 years, Polaroid Spectra film is about to be discontinued. Polaroid Originals has just announced that it will no longer produce it, and if you want to stock up, the final batch is now on sale. After the last batch is sold out, you will no longer be able to buy Spectra film, neither color nor black and white.
It looks like one chapter for Nikon mirrorless cameras has ended, and the other is about to begin. Nikon 1, the first line of mirrorless cameras from the company, has just been discontinued.
Here is a bit of interesting news, a letter that Sigma distributors just sent to their retailers tells that Sigma is stopping to make some of the Sony mount Sigma lenses.
A reliable source within the industry tells us that Sony is actually quite a small business with Sigma, so they are letting this line go.
