It is a new camera system, which under the code-word AFRika kept.

"A system reflecting the needs of professional digital photography in the 21st century. Handy as a DSLR. High-resolution as a studio camera. With a processor, as there is still no. With lenses, as none currently exists."

AFRika could be here for autofocus (AF) R. So a digital Leica R with auto focus.

"High-resolution as a Studoikamera." This will mean a new sensor, the question remains whether this is still in small picture format move, or possibly greater proportions, and so takes against digital medium format cameras field moves.
