Hopefully it's 1.33x crop like the M8 or even Full Frame.

1.5x and 1.6x crop are kind of boring, micro 4/3 wouldn't make sense to me if you consier the current Leica glass and the apertures...

28mm f/2 or f/2.8 lens with a 2x crop = 56mm equiv field of view... so if you want something closer to 28mm or 35mm with a theoretical Leica 4/3rds camera you are going to spend A LOT of money on lenses.

My take on the word mini is, it wont be full frame. and I dont think it will be another m8, that is, not another aps-c or aps-h body with interchangible lens. It will not be the x3 either. Not the fix lens aps-c with some upgraded sensor or movie or wifi.

After rule out all above, my guess is a aps-c senesor with build in fixed moderate zoom, adding all the modern movie, wifi, gps, etc.
