I just learned that Jenoptik and Leaf decided to partner together.... I think this is good news for both companies.
Actually I think this is old news and stems from just before Jenoptik sold its Sinar shares to Leica.
If you read the report, which is from Sept. 25th, it states that both companies will work together in regards to the HY6 ("The new Medium Format camera to be introduced at Phokina").
We've since learned that Jenoptik has decided to refocus on its core business interests and is pulling out of the digital camera business. They were key players in the development of the HY6 and have now sold their shares of Sinar to Leica and I haven't heard or read anything about a cooperation, partnership or transfer of technology with Leaf, regarding digital backs.
But who knows, things seem to be happening very fast at the moment.
