Subject: [Leica] Leica and Fujitsu = R10?

These are programmable processors... the basic core instructions will be 
identical ( S2 and R10 ) but the implementation and precise instruction set 
will be slightly, different.   ( for example.. the S2 has X million pixels 
organized as AxB while the R10 will have Y pixels organized as CxD.  Each 
camera will use the "same" algorithms.  In addition, it is possible to tweak 
each processor instruction set for the precise market.....  Whether this is 
what they will do remains unknown.

It is a pretty common way of doing things......

It's part of the S2 and I'd be very surprised if it's not also planned for 
the R10.
