Leica @ Photokina 2016

Leica "Das Wesentliche" Event on October 20, 2015

Leica will be holding a "Das Wesentliche" event on October 20, 2015. This is when they'll typically announce one of more new products - as they have in the past. This event is not open to the public; it's invite only. We expect to see a new Leica X-U (Type 113) or M-like camera to be announced. There's also talk of a Leica Q (Type 116) camera with interchangeable lenses. Though we're not betting on that. Leica has already stated that if the Leica Q proves popular (which admittedly, it has) then they will consider releasing it in other focal lengths. There's been no talk of an interchangeable lens version that we're aware of. Read more below for details!
