Leica has tonight announced that it has 'finalised' the takeover of Sinar, a maker of view cameras.

In a statement, Leica said: ‘Leica now possesses a complete product portfolio, from a medium-format digital camera system to digital view cameras and, as a result of the takeover, is now the only full range provider of digital camera systems in formats larger than the 35mm Leica full-frame format.’

The details were posted on Leica Camera AG’s Facebook page.

Leica took a controlling 51% share in the Swiss company in 2006.

Financial details have not been disclosed.
