Is Leica divorcing Panasonic?
Sep 30, 2008

I see several ominous signs:

1) The G1 lenses are being sold under the "Lumix" brand instead of the "Leica" brand.

2) The new Leica S2 uses their new MAESTRO processor, instead of the Venus processor, as used in Panasonic-developed models like the C-Lux, D-Lux, and V-Lux.

3) Early reports are that the new D-Lux 4 is diverging more from the LX3 than the D-Lux 3 did from the LX2.
