As someone suggested to me off-list last night -
what if Zeiss acquired Leica. Talk about synergy.

One of the ironic things I saw when in Germany last month, was when I was in 
Wetzlar.  There was this huge building in the business district with the 
company name - Zeiss.  In Leica's home town. 


Yes they have been there a while. Leitz is only one of several optical 
companies in Wetzlar.
