Remember Konost?

I remember the Konost. I remember they appeared at a time when the market was hot for their proposed product.
Then they faded away.
Then there were some announcments and activity.
Then they faded away.
Then another announcement that they really are still alive.
Then they faded away.

I subscribed to their "newsletter". Twice. Anybody else? Did you receive anything?

Regardless of whether Konost still has a pulse or not, I suspect the time is over for them. Even if they were for real, the market has shifted and I'm not so sure they would be profitable. There's quite a few used digital M's out there (of course many are expensive ticking time-bombs, thanks Leica.)

I'd be curious if anyone has heard anything about these Konost folks. Anything at all.

Konost, if it ever happens, need to be a FF M mount camera. Last I saw on their site is that they were thinking of also offering a APS-C sensor version. If that's the case why not just use a Fuji XE-1 or Sony A6xxx w/ M mount lenses?

Hardly, my believe to the miracle was taken by "10 Rolls Neopan Acros $17.88?" thread.
