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

Recommended Posts

Be patient, guys... It's amazing how something I'm very excited about did not get picked up by the forum detectives... Of course, I don't know if this is the other thing the tweet this morning was referring to...

 

Cheers,

I just saw that Ronald has put up a teaser for the R10 in the digital forum ... but hey, Twitter isn't anything "made in Germany", John Mayer got dumped for a (good) reason.

Longshots.........apart from the obvious R10 / R digital solution that is:):

 

New M Lens -- a replacement for the MATE Tri-Elmar (or, shock horror, a Leica zoom)

S2 Lens -- Vario 30-90 (available at launch or before the New Year)

Quote from BJP: The British Journal of Photography understands that Leica will unveil a “consumer focused digital SLR”.

 

Didn’t Leica executives say a couple of months ago that there would be a way to keep using the R lenses? This would be it.

A consumer focused digital SLR without autfocus? That's not consumer focused IMO.

Unless of course they also offer some AF lenses... and allow use of existing R lenses via an adapter...

Actually, a consumer DLSR with auto-focus lenses is as unliky as the thought that the M8 would continue as the low-cost entry-level M-camera of Leica.

 

To get return on investment for a consumer level DSLR you need to get a relative large market share, and in this area competition is hard and margins are low. Not Leicas cup of tea.
