Yep, that's right! You heard it here first.

New Leica Products at Photokina 2012

I've been very close to buying an Nex7 on a couple occasions as a replacement (with Leica R Glass) to my Canon 7D and for casual use with my Leica M glass. Then I heard the rumor about a full frame NEX which I'd buy in a heart beat, now the "Leica ME"? I don't know if it's a mirrorless (or maybe some kind of evf accessory), but if it's the former Id be pretty excited about the possibilities....and of course the M10 if it's under $10k (which it might be, now that they look to be possibly phasing out the M9)

The Leica ME is real (though it's possible the name could change). And it should be available shortly after Photokina.

It's a real Leica, not a clone. It's also very likely full frame. And M mount... ;)

I like the "available shortly after Photokina" part. I'm too impatient to wait 6 months! :-D

I suppose I'll update the main story... But let's see if anyone's actually reading the rest of the site first... ;)

The ME will have a regular RF VF - no EVIL, no EVF, etc. You'll need the M10 for that.

(I hear thousands of bubbles bursting)

It's a scaled-back M9. Think "E" for economy - like the Mercedes E class. :)

Id buy one if it where closer to one of the mirrorless cameras, ie usable with almost any lens mount with adapters. If its just a mini (economy) M9 usable with only leica lenses I'll buy an M9 or wait for the M10...still eagerly awaiting though ;)
