They had a banner announcement!

1) so a X2 with NOT a 50mm equivalent f1.4 lens - same old body, same old (good, but f2.8) lens, an ugly EVF optional...and same old low resolution LCD...oh boy.

So for sure NOT an X100, OM-D, X-PRO 1 and so on "killer".

2) M9-M - same body, same layout, same old low resolution LCD - just an monochrome version of the (old?) sensor.

A niche product for sure...

For me - as you can imagine from what above has been written - disapointing at all fronts.

So HOPEFULLY the PHOTOKINA 2012 with M10, the announced mirrorless, interchangeable lenses solution will give LEICA products that they can sell in large amounts to keep LEICA in business - with that products today announced I believe they can't be competitive...
