Leica T, very odd
4 months ago

Leica's chosen to start a brand new APS-C mirrorless system

http://www.dpreview.com/news/2014/04/24/leica-t-and-lenses-herald-arrival-of-mirrorless-t-system?utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=mainmenu&utm_medium=text&ref=mainmenu

when they are already members of the Four Thirds consortium

http://www.four-thirds.org/en/contact/group.html

Presumably they could have sourced Four Thirds sensors of high quality from either Panasonic or Sony and not had to develop a brand new lens system. Maybe there is something in their agreements with Panasonic to stop them doing this, or perhaps it's just strange product planning.

The DPR article suggests that the system might be intended to grow to FF, but Leica already has a mirrorless FF system.
