Well if the marketing research indicates that the Schneider name has
been sold to the highest bidder too many times my advice to them would
be to hire a new  marketing research firm.
The name "Zeiss" also appears on a slew of plastic point and shoots and
now so does Leica's name appear now on a Panasonic plastic digital grabber.
In all cases no one thinks the names over been devaluated and they are
glad these companies have been able to stay in business.
