We don’t write about rumors on this site, but this one comes from the camera company itself. This morning, Leica posted a photo to their Facebook suggesting that they’ll soon be releasing a new camera that will fit between the Leica M and their APS-C-equipped compact camera, the X2.
There’s not a lot of information on the image, but it refers to the new camera as the “Mini M,” which could mean any variety of things really. Will it be a fixed-lens, full-frame camera like the Sony RX1? Maybe it’s an interchangeable-lens system with an APS-C sensor similar to that found in the X2? Maybe they’ll take a shot at something like the Fujifilm X100s. Tough to tell.
Whatever it is, it’s coming on June 11th and we’ll bring you the information as we have it. That spot in the line-up could mean a price point anywhere between $2,000 and $7,000, so it could be a number of things. What would you like to see from Leica?
**UPDATE: **Leica has posted another version of the teaser photo to their Facebook page, this time revealing a little more of the camera.
