Leica Rumors is reporting that everything points to an APS-C based camera with a fixed zoom lens. This sounds like an X2 with a fixed zoom lens.  I hope that is not the case.  If it is. then Leica will have missed the mark and lost the opportunity to bring me in as a new user.


An aps-c zoom!?!! That would suck. I can visualize that being the most hated Leica ever. I mean, why bother- there's already the boring ol' c-lux/v-lux/d-lux cameras out there(no offense to lux owners, but small sensor zoom cameras does not capture the essence of what Leica is imo). Hopefully it's all deliberate misinformation to throw everyone off track

I was really hoping for a FF digital version of the Leica CM or minilux with the fixed 40mm f2.4(or even a 50/2) with a plain old OVF. Now that would be a camera to get excited about! Priced at $2000 with fast af & good high iso, it would be an RX-1/x100 killer.
Or maybe a monochrome version FF digital CM!
(Doesn't hurt to dream)
