As I usually do every morning, I seek whatever Leica news I can find. Today, the official Leica website (www.leica-camera.com) did not disappoint. It reports of a new camera to be introduced on June 11, at this point referred to as the Leica Mini M. It is thought to be a model placed between the Leica M system and the Leica X and it is thought not to be a rebranded Panasonic camera but a model made in Germany.
Rather than exercising all sorts of guesses of what that camera might be like, I chose to wait until the 11th of next month to see what Leica has up their sleeves.
I like the timing because it allows me to take a close look at this new Leica product on my visit to Solms in July. You can be sure that an in-depth report will follow on these pages.
