    No sensor chosen, no details yet, but info forthcoming at Photokina 2012. British Journal of Photography has the story.

    I'd be pleasantly surprised even though I have major doubts.

    Leica has more than they can handle: X1, M9, S2 and their lenses. In fact, there is a major stock shortage for most of their M-lenses. If anything, it would be a rebranded Panasonic.

    Now wouldn't that be something... a m4/3 Leica body that is a rebranded Panasonic, in the same vein as the Leica Digilux 3/Panasonic Lumix L-1. Maybe this is the real successor to the Panny GF1, and maybe the rumored "bright zoom" lens is a m4/3 version of the Leica 14-50mm f/2.8-3.5 to be sold as a kit with this new body? Hmm...
