New Leica 1546 camera registered in Asia

A new Leica camera was registered in Asia under the code name 1546. The new model will have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth installed. The camera will have the same radio parts as the Panasonic TX2 and Panasonic GX7 and it will use a new ACA-DC 16-E power adapter. The Leica 1546 will be manufactured by Panasonic AVC Networks Xiamen Co., Ltd. in China. This indicated that the new 1546 will most likely be one of the Panasonic rebadged cameras – most likely a new Leica D-Lux since the current D-Lux model was announced back in 2014.

Some websites report that Panasonic will be producing a new version of the full frame mirrorless Leica SL – this information is completely wrong because the current Leica SL (Typ 601) camera is made in Germany and I do not expect to be replaced any time soon (see this and this post):

Update: Leica SL Typ 601 camera is not even close to being discontinued

The Leica SL mirrorless camera will not be replaced anytime soon
