Leica 'abandons' film cameras in shift to digital, lens crafting
" "Leica Camera has already ceased production of film cameras."
"This shocking statement emerged abruptly from Leica Camera AG owner Andreas Kaufmann at a lecture on May 30 organized by the Japan Camera Industry Institute (JCII)."
The end of an era. Leica was synonymous 35mm film photography. Not any more. At least Leica has successfully made the transition to digital. It's not like I could afford the Leica film cameras. My Leica was given to me by my Grandfather. Still sorry to see the film camera production end.
