Leica Rumor: new lower price rangefinder, an R10, and the new D Lux-4.

From the daily rumor scan of dpreview:

Leica will be releasing a new, lower price rangefinder, an R10, and the new D Lux-4.
I was told by a very reliable source. Leica wants to expand it's sales in their camera and lens divisions. Making an RF camera that is affordable, ($1000 - $2,000) and lenses that are more affordable, which they are doing currently, should get more people using the RF format. This camera will be announced and shown at Photokina, along with the new R10, and the Dlux-4, in a kit form (including a telephoto add-on lens). It makes good marketing sense. Also, they are going to drop the 4/3 system, leaving Olympus to their Zuiko lenses, and continue their association with Panasonic. My source is solid, I'm not a troll. I guess we'll know next month, for sure.

and one more:

The M9 will come next year with FF chip.
