    Just from a Nikon press release a few hours ago:

    ...

    The full press release is here

    Looks like the end of an era for Nikon. At least they are still continuing the F6 and FM10.

    In recognition of Nikon’s commitment to professional photographers we will continue to manufacturer and sell the F6, our flagship film model, as well as a number of manual interchangeable lenses. Sales of the manual FM10 will also continue outside Europe

    Although I know alot of people love the enlarging lenses, there are many on the market and a few big players still, so I don't see a huge loss there. The large format market is so niche, that I'm surprised they still produced lenses for that.

    The death of film cameras are a little exaggerated. The European market is where they are focusing the changes.
