The history of photography is a study in miniaturization. Cameras and negative/sensor size have been shrinking for two hundred years. Every new technological advance is met with derision by the supporters of the status quo. We saw this within the past couple of years as smart phones decimated the P&S market. The DSLR users view is no different than that of the Rollieflex owners faced with the 35mm Leica. MILC cameras will supplant DSLRs for all but professionals with specific needs. Canikon are faced with adapting or becoming niche products, i.e. Hasselblad, Leica M, etc.
zorgon: Since when did dpreview start posting rumours?
The photo is a fake. Look at the lettering on the lens, crokked and upside down. See also the highlight and shadow areas. camera body is highlighted on right, lens on left, and both differ from the other camera. There is no way Leica, as a legendary lens maker, would offer an expensive camera with such a lame lens spec. With modern manufacturing methods and electronic aids it is not at all difficult to build a fast lens.I say again: FAKE.
Error in naming the photo s/b "Talbot on Talbot" as both cars are Talbot Lagos. Simple brain fade.
