Leica M10 speculations

After the latest M9/M9-P price reduction and the upcoming Leica event in Cologne, we are definitely getting closer to the Leica M10 announcement. In addition to the first M10 spy shots, I recently received two additional images:

 

 

Here is a mockup on how I think the M10 will look based on the above spy shots - the body will be similar to the M8/M9 Titan without the cut-off edge on the top plate:

I think in the M10 Leica will use the same electronic viewfinder from Olympus that is currently sold as an accessory for the Leica X2. There are some rumors that the M10 will have some kind of a hybrid viewfinder similar to the Fujifilm X100/X-Pro1. Stefan Daniel (Director of Product Management at Leica Camera AG) said this about EVF in an interview last year:

"I think that the quality of the 1.4MP finders is already very good, and sometimes even more accurate than an optical finder, think of white balance or exposure. Over time, as technology is improving, optical finders will get less and less important. The X100 finder is a very nice concept and well executed".

The M10 will most likely have a 24MP CMOS sensor produced by Sony (with built-in live view and video recording capabilities). There were also some rumors that the M10 will have a 24MP CCD sensor from Teledynedalsa (less likelly).
