Konica Minolta and Sony to co-develop dSLR cameras

Konica Minolta and Sony have announced an agreement to co-develop digital SLR cameras based around the Maxxum/Dynax lens mount. This agreement should allow new cameras to use Konica Minolta's camera-specific technologies, such as autofocus, and Sony's imaging sensor, image processing, and lithium-ion battery expertise. It should be interesting to see how this development unfolds.
