It wouls eem that Tamron has discontinued the ETRSi camera line and its accessories. This has been roumoured for some time, what with most of the medium format systems taking a beating in the market. The japanese site has had information about this for a few months now, but the US has just been officially brought into the loop. ERTSi discontinued To bad they didn't jump on the digital bandwagon and develop a good, (relatively) inexpensive digital back for the system. As is I am going to keep mine, keep shooting film and looking at getting a film scanner. Maybe some of the aftermarket digital backs will start coming down in price.
