Yoshihisa Maitani RIP

http://asia.cnet.com/crave/2009/07/3...6-passes-away/

Hi Folks,

I came across the above link this morning and was stunned by what I read. For me, Maitani had a design philosophy that stood apart from most other camera designers. His products really were those that lent careful consideration to ergonimics, style and funtionality, and I am proud to still be using some of them. I am deeply saddened by this news, and my thoughts are with his family.

Regards, Steve.

I tink it is safe to say cameras would be different today (and not for the better) if it wasn't for Maitani - A true great in the world of design

He will be missed
