No surprise: Panasonic confirms that they will no more make a DSLR

In an article on CNET Asia “Panasonic aims to up camera market share in Asia” Panasonic confirmed that they have “no immediate plans to release a new dSLR“.

CNET and Panasonic discussed about the goals from Panasonic:

At present, its share of the digital still camera pie in Asia is 10 percent and the share target for 2010 is 15%. The US share is quite low for Panasonic, while Germany is a potential country. We would like to expand our businesses in those countries
