I quote from dpreview

"Kenko Tokina, who is currently responsible for handling the customer service and repairs for Konica Minolta cameras and meters, has announced it is ending customer repair services for all Konica and Konica Minolta cameras, as well as all Minolta meters."

Who knew they were still doing it !?

To be fair ,I though KM washed their hands of it in 2006 , KenKo bought the meter side and it's no surprise they continued the service work , but I never knew the still supported the camera side of things .

And Sony stopped support of FFB a few years back .

I had a look around their website (entirely in Japanese) for more about their former repair services - it appears they also sold Konica Minolta accessories, though you had to inquire about them.

It's a long shot, but if anyone wanted to try contacting them and seeing if they wanted to give away or sell what remaining parts they had left (like the SSM conversion revival project from the MiFo Forums), here's the link: https://www.kenko-tokina.co.jp/konicaminolta/

There's no email, only a phone number. Knowing Japanese might help!

For anyone else, there's an interesting Konica Minolta History page (also Japanese, but most can be translated); https://www.kenko-tokina.co.jp/konicaminolta/history/.
