I don't think this is wishfull thinking on my part, but why does Zeiss continue to mention the Contax line in their web page and their newsletter.
Who knows? It may be as simple as they've just not gotten around to taking down irrelevant pages on their site. Or they are still moving the last remnants of their inventory from the pipeline. It's a slender reed upon which to make assumptions about the future of this fine camera in parlous economic times for medium format.
Like Eleanor, I'm heavily invested in the Contax 645, and I'm as partisan a Contax admirer as you'll find. It's a splendid camera, and I'd love to believe either the camera line, or its excellent lenses, have some sort of future other than in my loving hands.
But I'm also a realist. I have a lot of sunk cost in my system, and I'm happy with its current performance (film) and I'm looking at purchasing a digital back of some type for it. But always in my considerations I'm hedging against certain eventualities: availability of service and parts, Kyocera/ToCAD's "10 year service" guarantees notwithstanding; availability of crucial system accessories; and mostly, existence of an acceptable digital back at a price I can afford at some time within the next five years.
If my film scanner dies, or my Jobo dies, given the costs to replace either of those with comparable equipment, I have to consider whether it makes sense to continue to invest in analog-based equipment when that $ would put me well along to the cost of a digital back, or an all-digital MF system (assuming the Mamiya or Pentax systems ever see the light of day.)
It's a confusing time, but a promising time, for medium format, while all of this shakes out.
