Does anybody know of a site or page on the web that recounts in detail the ownership changes of Leica since the Leitz family sold the company in 1986? I haven't dug very deep yet, but I'm not having a lot of luck coming up with the information. I thought it was commonplace and would be easy to find, but I'm not coming up with much....
I've just gotten curious as to why no one these days ever talks about the Leitz family or its influence on the marque. I'm also a bit curious as to why they would sell the company just then, only a few years after the popular and strong-selling M6 came out.
Anyway, if the Cloud-Mind could be of any help here, the Fog-Mind (moi) would be grateful.
