    There have been numerous rumours about such a move, including the purchase of the Contax MF system from Kyocera.

    It certainly would be a welcome move, but I seriously doubt it - the ROI in MFD are too small and precarious at the moment - take a look at the HB Looney debacle.

    Haha, yeah. I do wonder where to though for the 35mm top tier cameras. It seems the best way for them to further their products is to upscale their sensors, a la the Leica S2.
