One of the best new products of the company was the award-winning film scanner Scan Elite 5400 II. Another success was the production of zoom lens units for small cameras and lens units for the microcamera modules of mobile phones.
Konica Minolta announced in January 2006 that it would stop all its activities related to photography, such as camera design and production, analog or digital, as well as the development and production of film and photo paper It transferred "certain assets" (especially its know-how about making autofocus SLRs, AF lenses and DSLRs) to Sony, which has developed DSLRs compatible with the Konica Minolta AF system. The binocular and photographic light meters are now supported by Kenko.
For cameras made before the companies merged, see Konica and Minolta. The very first new models from after the merger got the Minolta badge, too, and are listed below. Since Konica Minolta did not last long as a camera maker, all its products (new and reworked ones) are listed. The company still offers zoom lens modules for compact cameras of other makers.
