Interesting thought Peter as this certainly is a possibility. The 6MP
Philips sensor has fallen in price and increased in electrical performance.
Leica has been making their own digital cameras, the S1 - 25MP, for many
years and indeed has the technology and knowhow to do this. Designing and
building a consumer digital camera, as I can attest to, is certainly not
rocket science.
