Next model in the S-line will called S3. Just as the latest M went back to sequential numbering this model will drop the typ naming. 64MP, launch late this year (after PK). Better grab those used S lens bargains

Technically it would be the S5. There was an S1 long ago, but even ignoring that, the more recent iterations have been the S2, then the S006 (S3), then the S007 (S4).

But the Ms went from M8 to M9 to M240 to M10.

And I wrote at the time that the M10 should have been the M11. I never said Leica was smart or logical about naming.

How do you know for sure? Or is this just an opinion/guess?

This was from a Leica rep, not an official statement. But good to know the S continues. Apparently no major changes to the body. I’m curious as to what sensor they are putting in. And at what price point it will be launched.

Sincurves,  You are correct about the S3.  Don't be surprised about sensor and board upgrades being offered for the S007 and capability for the S3.  Like you, Leica sources and methods used.  r/ Mark

Made one of my rare visits to my nearest Leica Store 100+ miles away... and noticed they had no S bodies on hand. They said it was "sold out", whether referring to their own stock only or wider scale I don't know. Could it be that inventory of 007 has been allowed to decline in view of an imminent newer model?

S3 (or whatever name) will come.

 

With the absolutely stunning SL primes and the SL 15-35 zoom in mind, one can only imagine what S3 and correspondingly designed S lenses can/will deliver. Yes, the existing S lenses are fine and the 120mm is outstanding, but the newest SL lenses (as well as the best TL-lenses) belong to a new territory.

 

Interesting times.

See this is what I also noticed when comparing the 50mm SL Summilux on the SL with the 70 on the S. If you pixelpeep (which I know is a pointless exercise to some degree), the level of resolved detail on teh SL/50SL is much higher than that of the S(006)/70

Be careful comparing pixel level detail. The sharpening and NR defaults of different cameras in LR or ACR are quite random. The X1D looks noisy and very sharp at any ISO compared to the S(007), but if you balance the noise, the sharpness is almost identical. All my S lenses out-resolve the sensor and will create Moiré wide open (except the extreme corners of the 24 and the zoom). That's the only reliable test. Once you out-resolve the sensor, all you are seeing are artifacts. The SL and S have the same size pixels.

 

Disclaimer: I haven't looked at the SL primes, but I have full faith that they are astonishingly good.

. An improved, stabilized, S zoom would appeal to me,

Sorry, but the long awaited XCD 35-75 zoom also won’t have image stabilization.

 

As for the body, we’ll have to see, just like the so called S3.

Upgrade of internal component for an older system? Wow.... Leica's never done that before... but I don't believe this will be the case. Anyway, one could dream....

Promoting that concept already helped get one Leica CEO fired.

      카메라 m10을 보면서 뭔가를 찾았습니다.
      빨간색 표시에 반짝이는 접착제가 있습니다.
      다른 카메라는 이런가요?
       
      Looking at camera m10, I found something.
      There is a shiny adhesive on the red mark.
      Are other cameras like this?

      Hey everyone, 
      I just got my m2 off ebay and had a look through the viewfinder only to see 2 main very noticeable spots. I attached a picture and the one on the lower left looks much dimmer and looks like a dot and a hair almost? It's kind of light greyish and I think it's a particle or dust but I'm not quite sure. However, in the middle the speck seems much darker (basically black) and more prominent. Could this be separation or is it another speckle of dust (imo it doesn't seem like one). If this has happened to you or you know what it is, any input on how to fix or your thoughts would would be greatly appreciated! 
      Also the shutter curtain on the front seems a little pushed forward and I can see the whole seam on it, is that normal? The curtain works 100% fine but I'm not sure if Im supposed to see the whole seam and overlap of the two curtains. On the back it stays slightly open by 1mm or so (didn't include a pic sorry)... should it cause a light leak? The camera was also recently CLA'd.
      Lastly, the viewfinder has some "gold specks" which I think is separation, but I hope i'm wrong.  
      Please help if you can clarify, recommend a fix, or give any thoughts on ^^. Overall the camera seems amazing and none of the things I mentioned has really bothered me, but if I can learn more about them then it would be great.
      Thanks in advance, 
      Ashley

      Have searched for a while for the ultimate pouch (neoprene, not leather) for my Leica M lenses. Finally found one for the "average" Leica/Zeiss/Hexanon lens. This bag can also be hooked to the belt via the sewn loop, having enough room for a finger to reach for the lens. I cut off the adjacent carabiner as it was useless. Now I can stack two lenses on top of each other (I have 4) in my ONA bag. I am not naming any brands, I am not associated with anyone, just informing anyone that was after such product that this company is in Munich, Germany and on amazon.de. They have even smaller (XXS) bags but they are too tiny for Leica lenses. The proper size they offer for the pouch IMHO was XS (7cm x 8cm). The bags are not the icons of design, nor very beautiful, but they do get the job done.

      PLEASE SHARE YOUR LEICA LENS POUCH EXPERIENCE(S).

      Verkaufe aus gesundheitlichen Gründen eine Leica SL, wenig benutzt und daher nahezu neuwertig und ohne Gebrauchsspuren. Gekauft im Juli 2017 hat die Kamera weniger als 10.000 Auslösungen. Die Kamera wird verkauft im Originalkarton und allem darin befindlichen Zubehör. 
      Gerne weitere Auskünfte per PN oder Email.
      Verkauf an Selbstabholer oder Versand (dann bitte Vorkasse oder Paypal).
      Privatverkauf, keine Garantie, keine Rückgabe.

      Please share your opinion - if you have used or owned both lenses or any opinion on the topic. Mostly interested in comparison of render, sharpness, bokeh, pop etc. according to you - digital sensor or film.

      Early reports indicated the Hexanons were inferior. According to LHSA "some Hexanon early samples were reported to have focusing discrepancies, long since resolved, and that adversely affected initial sales. The current consensus: Konica KM and Leica M lenses, even those with longer focal lengths and wider apertures, can be used interchangeably on both cameras without problems." Lots of posts ot the tiny flange difference between the cameras, but here we discuss the lens.

      Mr. Rockwell even went as far as comparing the build of Summicron 50 (V) to the Hexanon-M 50 side by side and they indeed look almost identical. Check the pic on his webpage under the Hexanon topic.
      I have recently acquired a Hexanon-M 50/2 (photographed below on my M) and it is a stellar performer, slightly better wide open (especially corners) compared to Summicron M 50/2 (IV) in all the tests I did.
      YMMV.
