During photokina 2012 which took place in late September 2012 we had a chance to interview most of the major players in the photography industry. Today we bring to you our interview with Maike Harberts – Leica's X system manager, talking about some of the new products and designs Leica introduced recently.
During photokina 2012 we had a chance to interview several key managers from Leica, one of them was Maike Harberts who was kind enough to sit down with us and talk a bit about the new X2 and Paul Smith X2 Edition introduced during photokina. Maike Harberts has a long history in the photography world and was actually in charge of the development of the S2 (currently this position is held by Mr. Stephan Schulz who we also interviewed at photokina).
