Q&A session with Leica

The German version of the Q&A session with Leica just came online. The main points:

  • R-solution: Leica is working on a mirrorless solution, but for financial, technical and other reasons the exact details are still unclear.
  • S-system: three new lenses are expected – 24 mm ultra wide angle, 30 mm super wide-angle (with optional central locking) and 30-90 mm zoom. Still evaluating a possible tilt-shift lens.
  • X-system: new firmware by the end of 2010, X system will continue with a new model, but will keep the “Leica simplicity”. Do not expect HD video, GPS, etc. in the X line.
  • M-system: M9 successor will not have AF-assist/focus confirmation, weather sealing is on the their wish list, M9 firmware is stable, cracked sensor is caused by the manufacturing process of the supplier (will be replaced for free).
