According to Canon Rumours, there could be some concentration moves around the camera manufacturers. Up to this, it’s just in line with what I’ve been telling about some brands whose CEOs have heart burns from the intense current competition.

- Panasonic could buy the photo division of Leica. Assuredly weirder than certain.
- Panasonic could buy Olympus. Here comes credibility. And it would be industrially much more tenable.
- Samsung could buy Hoya, the owner of Pentax. If Pentax is suffering financial pains, Samsung is nearly certain to come and help. But why buy Hoya? This would be bizarre.
