Was Minolta Canada killed on purpose?

    It was the same in the UK. My friendly authorised Konica Minolta
    dealer (of 20+ years standing) ordered one 7D body. Lots of Minolta
    users came to inspect it, and handle it, but not one of them bought
    it. He has lowered the price on it many times, so the ticket now
    shows a whole 60% less than the original price, but it is still there,
    gathering dust.

    Meanwhile, the dealer has sold many Canon, Nikon and even Olympus
    DSLRs to his loyal former Minolta customers. They are loyal to him,
    because he is a very good dealer, but when Konica Minolta puts such a
    high price tag for a thoroughly mediocre product, loyalty stops.
    I wonder if Yugos sell anywhere but in "Yugoland", or wherever it is
    they come from?

    Can we please try to keep the flame wars to DSLR product only please?
    It gets too confusing when we mix Canada vs US, Canon vs Nikon, Plastic
    vs Metal, and Dogs vs Cats in the same group.

    Rich scribbles on the fridge:
    I don't have to explain anything -- I merely point out to you what is
    obvious to anyone else with a functioning brain: if you feel something
    is priced too high, go elsewhere with your money. Do you have an
    alternative suggestion, sirrah?
