I just read in the (german) newspapers that the Leice camera company has announced it has financial problems as some credit lines have been severed by the banks. (this is my literal and awkward translation of the german prose). They are not quite bankrupt, but have suffered severe loss and will only cope for the next months. (Until the shareholders meeting on May 31.)
Now, I don't own a Leica - and I can't forsee what this brings for the future of the Leica company, but it might affect the minds of the people who are not sure what Leica to buy. It would be interesting to hear what y'all have to say about this!
