Leica M12 camera mockups/leaks



The above two mockups/leaks show some of the previously reported Leica M12 camera rumors:

Leica M11-D camera announcement delayed until June


As I already suspected in my previous post, the Leica M11-D camera (model 2221) announcement is delayed until June.

It is interesting to mention that all the camera pictures, diagrams, schematics, user manual, and other documents are still not available for download on the FCC website – they should have been all available on May 16:
