Leica Sacks CEO Steven K. Lee

The CEO of Leica was 'removed' from his post by the company's supervisory board and replaced by their owner and board chairman Andreas Kaufman. His removal is hinted to be linked to a controversial interview he gave to Amateur Photographer at this year's PMA show, in which he hinted that the M8 digital rangefinder was to upgraded with a full frame sensor. I'm guessing that if this was the case, then it was information the board wanted kept under wraps. For more information read the source article at Amateur Photographer.
