Leica Camera AG has taken over control of Sinar Photography AG, the Swiss manufacturer of view cameras.
Details have not been disclosed.
Sinar offers everything from cameras and lenses to digital backs, shutter systems and workflow software.
Marketing, product management, support, development and production will remain in Sinar’s hands, while sales and distribution will be handled by Leica and Sinar’s worldwide dealer network.
This pretty much puts Leica at the top of the heap in the high-end digital camera segment, with a product lineup from a medium-format digital camera system to digital view cameras and the only full range provider of digital camera systems in formats larger than 35 mm full-frame.
