Leica to enter mirrorless market

Curious thing is that it will most likely not be m4/3 mount.  However the camera and zoom lenses will be made by Panasonic.  Prime lenses will be made by Leica.  I wonder if maybe it'll use a 4/3 sensor but not a m4/3 mount.  All Panasonic needs to do is to put a different mount on their existing cameras and m4/3 lenses and BAM this "new" camera has a large selection of lenses on launch.  Quadruple the price of the existing GX7, GH3/4 and GM1 and Leica fans will be more than willing to spend their money.
