Re: Here is the first IMAGE of that Leica Mini M
 
 
 
 

Oh sorry, my bad, it's not the "Mini M" but the "Mine Me" (next to the full fledged version):

Dr Evil and Mini Me (of Austin Powers fame)

Excuse me, but I really could not resist.

On a more serious note :

* I don't see Leica joining in µFT

* if it is called a Mini-M it should certainly take M-mount lenses (or else what is the point)

* So I believe that DPR's view is probably the most logical : a camera that can mount M-lenses (crop factor or FF) but with simplified mechanics.  Leica has recently ventured into the realm of LiveView, so maybe the camera will be LiveView only, either on LCD only, or on LCD and on an inbuilt EVF (without need for the rangefinder innards).

And also this :

Whatever the Leica-product will be: I doubt whether the name is a wise choice.

Really? Are we waiting for Mini-Anything?

I dunno about the M meaning it will take M mount lenses. They've termed the X2 the micro M.

I hope they don't try another half frame M mount camera either.
