In contrast to your view on using a 2-year old sensro from SONY (if it is indeed true), I think it is smart to use well-established technology as a stepping stone, it is cheap and easy to buy from the manufacturer.

I suppose indeed that's a safe way to do it.

And yet I can't shake off the feeling I have that this Leica T would have made more sense if Leica had been able to find an APS-C sensor with the properties of the Aptina's 1" sensor - in which case they could have used the rear touchscreen to do exactly what the camera app does with the iPhone 5s (super fast burst mode, slow mo, etc...).
