Just an update to my Crystal Ball update! There will be no new Leica EVIL camera at Photokina. No “R” solution. Basically, the new stuff will consist of:
- As already reported elsewhere, a New Special Edition M9 – Titanium w new 35 Lux ASPH and get this…a new way to show the frame lines. Cant say more than that but this will be big $$ but wow, it is gorgeous. Possibly the sexiest camera EVER made. You will see pics of this on Monday.
- D-Lux 5 will of course be announced and I predict this will be a HOT camera.
- V-Lux 2 – Superzoom compact, small sensor – so so quality.
- Something new with the X1 – cosmetic only.
The rumored and much talked about Leica “R” solution/EVIL camera will NOT be announced at Photokina.
