Rumor has it that Leica is considering selling off its low-end digicam business to Panasonic. Panasonic already OEMs Leica’s point-and-shoot line so it makes a lot of sense but of course Leica is denying it.
However, a Leica UK spokesman told Amateur Photographer that Leica will ‘always be at the receiving end of company strategy speculation’.
A UK spokeswoman for Panasonic said that talk on the internet was just a ‘rumour’.
Oh well. Back to the meat slicer.
