    That camera looked different, it had different specs
    than what is offered today. At the time, it's pixel count
    was astonishing, but did they ever build it?
    Is Contax going to be like Leica, having to put their badge
    on a price-uprated Panasonic???

    Kyocera do NOT own the Contax brand. The Contax brand is owned by
    Carl Zeiss of Germany. It was merely licensed to Kyocera, as was the
    Carl Zeiss brand for lenses. Kyocera have decided to stop making
    Contax cameras and Carl Zeiss lenses, that's all. The brand still
    exists.

    Carl Zeiss of Germany have recently licensed the Carl Zeiss brand to
    Hasselblad for lenses in the new Zeiss Ikon range of 35mm rangefinder
    equipment, which is being manufactured by Cosina of Japan and marketed
    worldwide by Hasselblad.
