Granted, it's a little early... ;)

But here's what we know about the M10 so far:

- Body differs slightly from M9
- Will cost less than the MM
- CMOS sensor (24MP+)
- Live view
- EVF port
- Video

While it may be announced at "Das Wesentliche" event the night before - or at Photokina 2012 itself... It won't be available until April 2013.

More as we find out...

Now, as for what we don't know.

The resolution is a bit nebulous but we're thinking 24MP or more. The move to CMOS should also boost high ISO capabilities. One big question is battery life - gain from CMOS, lose to video.

Not confirmed, but it looks like Leica might be delivering on the "R solution" promise from a few years back in the way of an R-M adapter... Since you could use R lenses on the M10 with live view with one.

Now that's an interesting idea, and a totally doable solution. Better start grabbing those R lenses NOW rather than after Photokina - when there's sure to be a gold rush on them... :D

Turns out there may be another hint on the R adapter.

We have a price on the M10. It will be less than the MM (which is currently $7,950 USD).

Kind of like Apple all along saying how much better PowerPC was to Intel... Until they switched...

Though Apple was right. :)

Interesting note; in Thorsten Overgaard's recent light metering articlehe says...

Quote:
The reason I use this mode is that on the Leica M9 I use either ISO 160 (outdoor) or ISO 800 (indoor) (the Leica M Monochrom and the Leica M10 can go higher, so the indoor/evening ISO can be higher there; and the M Momochrom has a base ISO (natural sensor ISO) of 320 ISO why that would be your daylight/outdoor ISO).

Not that we didn't expect this. Question is, "how high is high" and "how good is it?" :)

The wait is killing me... (although I admit I could just shoot some pictures and just forget about it... but no!)
