|Heh. That would be Ford, whose animus with Ferrari goes back a ways, and that "obscure" vehicle is their most popular pickup truck model, which incidentally is the highest selling truck in the world, with some 34,000,000 units having been built since 1948. In fact, by Wikipedia's count, the Ford F-150 is the highest selling vehicle in the world, with the possible exception of the Honda 50 motorcycle.
Now, I'm guessing you probably already knew that, and this was some tongue in cheek humor on your part. But just in case you weren't aware . . .
Anyway, thanks for the response. And I guess it does make some sense. I note that Canon has recycled the term "A-1" and "EF", which likely means they own some sort of proprietary rights to those two combinations, at least as far as photo gear goes. Still makes me wonder about Leitz's silence, especially since they're continuing to add to their M-series line.
