It is only the UK distributor Speedgraphic that have gone out of business.
The German firm NOVOFLEX are doing fine AFAIK; it is premium quality German stuff and there always seems to be a market for that even during economic downturns.
I have several Minolta SR/SONY NEX adapters and of all the ones I have and/or have tried only the NOVOFLEX (German design & manufacture) and RAYQUAL (Japanese design & manufacture) were spot-on in register as delivered out-of-the-factory, and of superb engineering.
FOTODIOX (US design, Chinese manufacture) are in third rank, but their quality control & care of assembly is very sketchy in my experience.
To my mind that makes NOVOFLEX and RAYQUAL value-for-money despite their apparent high price, and FOTODIOX overpriced despite being significantly cheaper.
