This is very disappointing development. Perry was one of the few CEOs in the industry who "got it". His thinly-veiled ouster by the new ownership does not bode particularly well, as I am sure it will have a negative morale impact in what is a very small company.
As one of the few people who's shot with an X1D, I can say they have made a beautiful r/evolutionary (if still flawed) camera, and Perry gets the credit. I wish him well.
