Recommended Posts

This week from Wednesday til Saturday (September 26th-29th) photokina 2018 takes place in Cologne, Germany

The Leica Camera stand can be found in hall 2.2, more information available on the Leica Website

Tomorrow on Tuesday at 11.30 am (CET) a press conference takes place - and the announcement makes me curious:
 

Wir freuen uns darauf, Ihnen Leica Produktneuheiten präsentieren zu können sowie auf eine in der mehr als 100-Jährigen Unternehmensgeschichte bisher beispiellose Ankündigung.

 
In English:
 

Unprecedented announcement in 100-year company history

 
I'll report live from Cologne tomorrow!
 
What's your guess what Leica will announce?

Leica's been bought by Zenith and will relocate all manufacturing to Russia

 

 

Hard to beat that one

 !

 

Hopefully news about the S3, and FF L-mount bodies and lenses from red, blue and multi-coloured photo brands...

maybe the partnership with other Japanese companies

 

Seems the most likely "unprecedented" announcement. I'm not sure sharing a mount with Japanese manufacturers is totally without precedent – haven't Leica previously offered a camera in the Micro Four Thirds format? (and, of course, third party manufacturers have been producing M mount lenses for many years since the patent expired) – but I suppose it might be the first time a mount devised by Leica themselves has been opened up to other manufacturers in a more formal collaboration.

They will finally half all their prices to become more competitive with other brands and to further the development of photography in general. They remain the best (one of the best) lens manufacturers and although the M10 is a very reliable camera it is overpriced.

Given the success of L mount and APS' camera type, the M line is abandonned

OK it is a bad joke..

Happy pictures to all.

 

Actually that would be an unprecedented announcement. The last true unprecedented announcement was in - what - 1954 when they announced the M3. The screw-mount was continued for a while including the wonderful IIIG. So the M10-P may be it sports fans. A totally new camera and lens mount will be announced.

 

Well, that or perhaps a new "softie". :-)

Leica will stop production of film rangefinder cameras. (Film is the only thing that has been a constant in the 100 years)
