more likely than 4/3 is FF

R10 FF digital I hope

possibly with AF system similar to that in the S2
compatible with legacy R lenses for MF
release a few lenses for AF, possibly even a zoom
would cost $$$, but I believe it could sell well

Leica can barely keep up with demand for the M9, though the gap may close with the opening of their new facility
lots of R system owners who want to move forward from the digital back

I'd rather they come out with an updated Viso as they already have a beachead of M users, maybe with AF using a modification of the recently developed S2 system
