Here’s an engaging gossip that has emerged in a camera world: Leica might shortly offer a camera that competes directly with a likes of a Sony FE system. The association is reportedly formulation to announce an transmutable lens followup to the new Leica Q. It would be a full-frame, non-rangefinder mirrorless camera with autofocus lenses.

Mirrorless Rumors initial reported on this after conference it from a source, and writes that a camera should be announced in time for a Photo Plus expo in Oct (so an central phenomenon someday in a subsequent month, perhaps).

According to a source, a camera will not be a deputy rangefinder for the M240, though will instead be an wholly new camera complement that’s presumably not a rangefinder.

The camera’s pattern is pronounced to be matching to a Leicaflex camera of old:


Other mentioned sum include: a bulkier pattern than a M and Q lines, an electronic viewfinder, a matching (if not identical) sensor to a Q’s 24MP full-frame sensor, in-body picture stabilization, an electronic shutter, a lightweight though plain build quality,

“This might finish adult being called a new ‘R’ camera and might good take aged R lenses around adapter, along with new AF R lenses,” a source says. “Not certain that it will take M lenses.”

The camera will reportedly come bundled with a 50mm f/2 Summicron lens and have a large cost tab of around $8,000 for a kit. If this news turns out to be true, afterwards it’s not only Canon that’s reportedly removing some-more serious with mirrorless cameras — Leica has bigger skeleton too!
