New Leica M11-D camera and Leicavit rumors

Leica is rumored to announce a new Leica M11-D camera (this is the model without an LCD screen). The official announcement should happen later in 2024, but I am not sure about the exact date.

The new M11-D will not have the fake advance lever (“integrated fold-out thumb rest”) the M10-D had. For fans of the lever, you can now add a third-party foldable thumb rest for Leica M10 + M11 cameras:

Leica is also rumored to bring back the Leicavit in chrome and black (not sure if it’s black paint, black chrome, or maybe both). The price is expected to be around €1,050 and the official announcement is expected in 2024.

Some Leicavit models are currently selling for over $2,000 on eBay. There are also third-party manufacturers like Akagivit:
