Mini M? [MERGED] AKA X-Vario

Recommended Posts

Maybe a M 240 without an optical viewfinder and rangefinder coupling with only Live View and the EVF?! Might be cheaper to manufacture...

very excited to see what it is. the resurrection of the CL it seems!

 

i hope it's more basic and nothing like the bloated M240.

I'm going to guess it's a fixed lens full frame with live view only similar to the Sony RX-1.

 

If it had a fixed lens I believe Leica would have called it an X something.

 

I believe it will be an M with no rangefinder. Same sensor. Probably no built in eye level viewfinder, but with the optional EVF (or rear LCD) for framing.

I hear you Stephen, but on their facebook graphic they refer to the X2 as the Micro M and the D-Lux 6 as the Nano M. I think everything may end up branded as an M by next year.

Good move by Leica.

 

Sony RX-1 and Fuji's are hot on their heels. Solid metal construction alone cannot justify the price differences if optical differences are negligible.

here's what i found on Overgaard's site based on Stefan Daniel's comments about this camera in 2010...apparently it's been in the works for a LONG time.

 

 

 

"A Leica mini-M seem to be under development and will - according to Stefan Daniel at a speech back in September 2010- not be ready for Photokina 2012... So we are talking later than that. But what we do know is that they are aiming at a mirrorles camera (the Leica M has always been mirrorless, but we're probably talking CMOS sensors that will enabe live view and thus focus confirmation). This camerea will also contain the R-solution which means that it will be able to take R lenses and offer focus confirmation for these."
