    How long ago was it they put the price up $5k? 2/3 months? Not so generous as you might think…

  • Akinobu Yoshikawa

    History suggests a new S (hoping for a mirrorless with EVF) coming in few months?

  • eric

    I wonder how many people are regularly shooting medium format cameras? Especially of the digital variety. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is no new S.

    • Actually the new Fuji and Hasselblad entries seem to really be adding some excitement to the medium format world, and strong demand. I’d love to see a competitor from Leica but it would mean much lower prices which I’m not sure if they can manage.

      • eric

        Yes, the fuji gfx 50s and the hasselblad x1d both look pretty cool for certain kinds of photography, though I doubt there widely used. I know a fashion photographer who has used the Fuji gfx. I thought about getting an X1d before the M10 came out but decided I really didn’t need the extra resolution. The viewfinder on the xd1 is also rather ugly. I think Leica could compete with both fuji and hasselblad if they made entry around $11k for a body. But I doubt they will. The S model kind of remains a very elite product that only really successful photographers may get into using.

        • Akinobu Yoshikawa

          I agree. It’s hard for people many to realize how good the S system is until you use it. It’s quite compact for medium format and the lenses are great (especially the primes). And the size of the lens are not any bigger than for the SL. Great battery life and grip.
          I just wish for the EVF, faster autofocus, and some weight shaved off. If they did the first medium format sensor stabilization to counter the slower lens (against the 35mm), that would be amazing but highly unlikely. It’s probably more like 18k at least like the S007.

          • eric

            Yes, Ive seen really cool photos done with the S. I kind of prefer analog medium format but nothing wrong with digital. I think the price is the reason most people are unfamiliar with it. I mean, it’s almost three times the cost of an M, without lenses, and arguable because of its heft appeals to a smaller segment of the leica market. To a lot of people, the appeal of Leica is in its compact M series with small lenses.

  • Steven Kornreich

    Well at least this is a step in the right direction. I have a S006 with 4 S lenses which I recently got back from Leica with the AF motor fix.
    As much as I would love a S007, it’s still to expensive especially considering the price of the new Hasselblad X1D

  • Bo Dez

    Seems like a new S really is coming.

    • Yes, it’s about time

      • Akinobu Yoshikawa

        Peter, from the information you have, do you suspect the camera coming this November to still be the TL2+EVF, or the new S?

        • I think it will be a camera with a TL mount.

  • Trade in value is pretty good for someone like me that’s still using an old 22mp back.

  • Ricardo Boks

    A new S must be have a price tag between $ 6000 – $8500 will it be a serieus choice against the Fuji GFX ore the Hasselblad X1D and Pentax Z645. The Hasselblad 5 and 6 serie and Phase One are the only real Medium Format brands there price is higher then the S but they are logterm investments, for the professional medium format users.
