Leica did once back in film days though via its partnership with then-Minolta: The Leitz-Minolta CL. Then came the CL3 from Minolta only.

Why not again today? ulfie

Aren't they doing that with Panasonic. They add the red dot to the exact same camera and double the price.

The body needs to accept M-mount lenses... none of the Panasonics do this.. they are simply re-badged Panny cameras with the red dot added and the price inflated.

I have long thought that the entry level camera for Leica should be a Digital CL.. it is a gateway to the M and of course M-mount lenses.

Know this... Leica will develop nothing that might impact the sale of their M system in a negative way.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
