Steven LeeIn a shock move, Leica has sacked its CEO, Steven Lee, following comments that he recently made about a full-frame Leica M-system rangefinder camera. UK magazine Amateur Photographer, who initially broke the full-frame news back in January, are reporting that Leica’s owner, Andreas Kaufman, has now replaced Lee with immediate effect.

“This change of management allows Leica Camera AG to immediately review strategies and make changes where required.’ Leica UK’s MD David Bell tells AP. ‘One of the first tasks for Dr Kaufmann will be to positively review all options for the M system’s future. There will be more details in the following weeks.”
