According to Amateur Photographer “Leica bosses have revealed plans to announce a compact system camera at Photokina 2012 in a bid to compete with the likes of Panasonic, Sony, Samsung and Olympus. ” Leica CEO Alfred Schopf told AP that “We are looking into that… You will see something at the next Photokina” and “Asked whether Leica would include an EVF, Schopf said it would largely depend on the sensor used, hinting that it would prefer the built-in EVF option. “
No more details were unveiled but our sources already told us that Leica is very likely going to use Sony sensors. And now let’s see if Nikon and Canon will finally move into the mirrorless world. They won’t miss the party or not?
