"There May Be Something In Our Webcast You Still Don't Know About"

Recommended Posts

Trade-in Policy:

 

Any used M8 or M8.2 (working, not working, or with vertical line defect) plus $999 gets you a new M9.

We can always hope. I'll be sure to send a telegram to Santa detailing how nice I've been....

Dude, are you serious? You think someone flew to Cuba and shot an entire campaign to forge an 80+ page product brochure? You're seriously entertaining this possibility?I admire your skeptical stamina Personally, I'd be flattered that they used the same flavour of post-pro as you (slightly high-key/high-pass). Nice work, btw.

 

Apologies, I didn't mean to suggest the work was unconvincing, just the spec seemed like an M8 with a full frame sensor. Perhaps the specs and product pictures might be fake....!

 

However, in the context of a major product launch, it would not be so expensive to complete such a photographic assignment in Cuba - perhaps four days with travel, one of which would be shooting. There are a lot of guys who would have done the whole trip including expenses for 5K (if the job was simply to mislead).

 

Anyway, thanks for the compliments.

I found the M9 brochure somewhat unconvincing - but I have nothing to substantiate that, it's just a feeling.

 

So, could the brochure be a red herring? I hope so.

 

 

It is indeed somewhat surprising that a the Leica micro site and the brochure leaked. So may be it was deliberately launched by Leica. I must admit that this is hard to beleive and that the odds that this is true are very, very low:mad:. BUT, it that were the case, it would be one of the greatest marketing plots ever -- and the guys in Solms will be laughing their a** off.

. Anyway, we'll know tomorrow.

This could be indeed... but given that the specs are, after all, what one had to reasonably expect for a FF M9, I wonder what different thay have put into... Is there something that can make them to say, tomorrow :"AHA !!! You THOUGHT that M9 would have THAT modest specs ? Look what we have REALLY done...."

People seem to be not realising that the X1 has auto-focus; not sure how that fits in with M mount lenses!

I suspect that the X1 is the beginning of a new development thread for Leica.

THe X1 will not take M-mount lenses. It has a fixed lens.

Do we know of if the X1 has an M-mount or R-mount. Is it really fixed? There's no release button in the front view of the camera.

 

How about an X1 with a real optical viewfinder (CL-D).

 

Please?

 

It's not a pretty sight to see a grown man beg. On his knees. In the rain. Without an umbrella. Getting splash by a passing car...

 

Do you know something we don't?

 

Don't know about Jaap, but i do

Hello all,

 

As I look at the brochure, I have to wonder about the layout on the lens page. There are odd gaps between the 24s and the 75s. Is this a hint--to be filled in with the final layout?

That's the gutter so when it's actually printed a lens image or text doesn't get squished.

We simply don't know the whole M9 story yet...

 

Something simple but desired like weather sealing?

Or something more revolutionary?
