With the DSLR market expanding by 39 percent in the last year (more than double the growth rate for compacts) and estimated to be worth $1.6 billion by the end of this year, competition has been fierce, and has already seen a couple of casualties; two big well-established camera brands, Konica-Minolta and Kyocera-Contax, have disappeared after decades in the industry.
