Leica acknowledges development of new system camera (R-solution)

Echenique.com published a letter sent by Leica to a customer regarding the future of the Leica R lenses:

"We are fully aware that you like to use your valuable R lenses on a digital Leica body in a adequate way. This need has been integrated into the development of new camera systems. We kindly ask for your understanding that we cannot make a more precise statement or detailed information concerning new developments or possible market introduction dates."

In that letter, Leica clearly states that another DSLR type R solution is out of the question. As previously reported, this new camera system is expected to be a full frame mirrorless solution that will take R lenses in addition to a set of new lenses. Announcement is expected at Photokina.
