During Friday’s on-line conference between members of the LHSA – the International Leica Society – and Leica bosses, product director Stefan Daniel confirmed the place of APS-C in future plans.
He had been asked whether, in view of some market-place price reductions on the Leica CL, there was a future for the crop-sensor range.
He told participants that the APS-C market is very competitive, with Fuji and Sony, in particular, offering a good price/performance ratio. However, he said that the CL is “far from being discontinued but needs some stimulation”. He confirmed that APS-C is a part of Leica’s product range and will continue.
