A full-frame digital rangefinder camera is still a future option for Leica

There is a confusion about a statement from Christian Erhardt, director of marketing for Leica USA’s Photographic Division where he “hinted strongly’ that Leica was planning a full frame version of the M8 rangefinder”.

“Steven K Lee’s comments to AP on 1 February this year suggested that Leica had discovered a way to overcome the issue of short back focus and the difficulties faced by digital sensors when light approaches from narrow angles. To announce this in February, when the product would not be shown to the rest of the world until September some eight months later seemed extraordinary.”
