Right. So Leica has made a strategic shift from the photography business to 
the jewelry business. Fair enough, the Blackstone people obviously know 
where the money is. But then they should be up front about it so that the 
photography dealers can switch their focus to companies that actually are 
interested in supplying photographers.
