Konica Minolta-ten Edit

Maybe there is some more information in the JCII catalogue コニカミノルタ展, which I don't possess. This camera is extremely elusive and I'm curious if there are more than two known examples. --Rebollo fr 16:58, 10 September 2007 (EDT)

It's not even mentioned in the JCII catalogue, implying that it wasn't exhibited. (I went to the exhibition but I don't remember.) Since such rarities as the Konica FR and SF were exhibited, its (presumed) absence is surprising. I imagine that at least one of the two known examples belonged/belonged to Konica and thence Konica Minolta and hope the company hadn't mislaid it.
You've asked about this catalogue before. I'm happy to answer questions about it, but should point out that it's rarely if ever helpful for somebody who has KKS10 or the Asahi Sonorama book on postwar Konica. There's just too much to stuff into too few (28) pages. (I bought a copy because it was cheap and I hadn't yet acquired or even heard of the other materials.) -- Hoary 21:32, 11 September 2007 (EDT)
Thanks for looking. Now that I've got some JCII catalogues, I'm conscious that they are rarely informative. I only asked about the Sakura-flex because it might have contained a picture of a third example. I'm surprised at how elusive is this Sakura-flex. One of the two examples was owned by Konica at the time Sugiyama's book was printed (mid-80s). The other, discussed in KKS27, is probably owned by a private individual, and there was surely an article in some issue of CCN, that I don't possess. One day I'll write to Konica to ask them what became of their example, and ask about pictures. --Rebollo fr 07:42, 12 September 2007 (EDT)
You may have to ask Sony! -- Hoary 10:29, 12 September 2007 (EDT)
