Leica is teasing us with the Mini M. We don’t know anything yet but two speculations:
- A compact fixed prime lens camera, maybe full frame, with a 35mm equivalent. In line with the Sony RX-1.
- A micro 4/3 camera, possibly the rumored revamp of the Panasonic Lumix L1 (it was their first mirror-less, with a Four-third Leica lens) in OEM, maybe with some new lenses and an official Leica M-Mount adapter. Leica and Panasonic collaboration isn’t new, and this fall right in line.
We’ll see, but let’s hope Leica goes with a better differentiation than the X2, more in line with the Leica M.
One thing that I’m certain of is that it will not be a film camera.
