If one considers that Sony is supposedly coming out with a FF Nex, it would make sense that Leica tries to circumvent the exodus of Leica glass from Leica bodies by coming out with its own mirrorless, EVF only, less expensive FF body to retain or expand its user base.

not sure this argument holds up entirely. if leica glass is the pillar of leica's profit and that's all they care about, then the more glass they sell (whether for leica bodies or not), the better off they are. i doubt that's leica's vision of itself - at least based on what's happened over the past year or two.

What will happen is that E mount users will buy more used Leica lenses (both M and screw mount). This will drive up the prices of used lenses, and make it more likely that Leica camera owners would buy a new lens rather than a used one.
