Announced nearly a year ago the Leica S (Type 007) medium format camera is finally set to arrive in September of this year (next month). Granted, the original plans called for a "Spring 2015" release - so technically it's only half a year late. In terms of digital camera lifespan, that's not a short amount of time.

On the bright side, the price has dropped from its original $25,400 USD price to $16,900 USD - a drop of $8,500 USD. The European price is £12,900/€15,000. Call it depreciation... Check out the instruction manual if you're curious. There's also an article on the Leica Camera Blog called "Storytelling with the Leica S" that has some more details and sample photos.
