The lens mount reminds me of that on the M10 which is necessary to creating the correct register distance for M lenses.  Is this a mirrorless camera for M lenses?

 

 

It appears to be a new TL camera... 

 

But the back reminds that of the M10...

The original X looked like the Leica I.

 

Here I feel they weren't couragous enough to follow the design of the viewfinder "housing" of the Leica II.

Die gräßliche Frontseite zeigen sie vorsichtshalber nicht. Leica wird wieder von mir enttäuscht sein.

A lot more Leica-like than the T and SL. A rather nice design and a wise decision by Leica IMO.

 

 

This XY camera is an ugly and coarse imitation of old Leica lines and shapes. 

 

I like the T design. It is one of the most beautiful cameras in the market. It is more faithful to Leica's philosophy: simply good design (beautiful and functional).

 

The T system might need a different model with integrated EVF, but the XY is a bad joke, IMHO.

Agree but X cameras are usually APS-C

Ugly indeed but hardly more so than the SL (to me). I had a body like that in mind when i chose my Fuji X-E2 vs the Apple err. Leica T. Level of compatibility with M lenses will be my main decision factor. APS-C? Sure but when i see what my Fuji can do with M lenses it can only be better IMO.

A matter of taste, I suppose. I like the black model, always did on the X series. The T does not ring my bell at all, nor does the SL.

Actually, that people who like the TL dislike the XY and vica versa shows that Leica got it just right. They want to sell both lines and not have one eat into the other.
