Extremely interesting comments from Stefan Daniel: Leica mirrorless medium format camera, M camera with EVF, and more

Stefan Daniel (Leica Executive Vice President of Technology and Operations) spoke to members of the Leica Society International in Dublin on October 14 and had some very interesting comments/remarks – here is a recap:

  • The Leica CL system is dead (reported multiple times on the blog)
  • Leica mirrorless medium format camera is scheduled for production in 2025 (see the first picture of the Leica S mirrorless medium format camera)
  • New Leica film camera “not so much a myth” (Leica M6 camera reissue)
  • In-body stabilization for the M system is not visible because of size constraints
  • Leica M camera with EVF (rumored for years) – I will use a quote here: “Stefan surprised the audience by saying that if there were sufficient demand, Leica would consider producing an M with EVF. Asked how many they would need to sell in order to make such a decision, he estimated a couple of thousand”. Update – the quote was later clarified as “several thousand”.
  • Leica Q3 is coming: “Asked when the Q3 would be launched, Stefan obviously couldn’t make a prediction. However, when a delegate raised the prospect of a Q with a longer lens — 50 mm has been discussed on forums — Stefan smiled enigmatically and said that this was a question that had often been asked. But he could not say categorically no. I found this rather surprising.”

What’s next for Leica?
