Leica has a licensing agreement with Panasonic.

Do you think any Licensee would sign a License Agreement allowing  the Licensor to compete with them in the same marketplace?

Yes, they already do. The D-Lux6 "competes" with the LX7 for example.

Panasonic makes the D-Lux 6.

Perhaps the mini M will be the same as the GX2.

simply re-brand an exsiting Panny u 4/3 camera with a red dot they would have done that with the GF-1.

The fact that they did not and have not since then (look at how much the G6 looks like an R9!) should tell you something about their Agreement with Panasonic.

Tedolph

Maybe they didn't think the GF-1 was worthy of the red dot.

I don't think it tells us anything about the agreement those two companies have tbh. Lets be fair, panny and Leica are hardly going after the same market segment.

Also considering the G6 really wasn't released that long ago, maybe this will just be a rebadged G6.

like I said,I just don't understand ahy eople can not accept reality.

Tedolph

Because sometimes dreaming can be a nice thing to do.

You have an unhealthy fixation on gear.

Really, is the camera you have not good enough for what you do?

Tedolph

It's plenty enough for most of what I do. Could do with a faster sync speed and I wouldn't mind about having the characteristics of a bigger sensor some of the time.

What can I say, I'm impressed by fine quality engineering. Leica is pretty much the epitomy of that when it comes to cameras (although yes, I realise if it is just a rebranded panasonic then it won't have that same usual Leica quality). Leica producing a camera that is afordable and usable day to day would be very appealing to me.
