This Monday, the Japanese company Cosina announced that it will be discontinuing the Bessa range of rangefinder cameras and accessories due to declining sales.

The news that Cosina is ending its Bessa range is a blow for film enthusiasts, as it leaves very few film cameras still in production with the exception of the high end Leica M-A and the more novelty line of film cameras. The company will still be making lenses including Leica M-mount rangefinder lenses.

The full list of discontinued products is as follows:

SUPER WIDE-HELIAR 15mm F4.5 Asp II
