Valentin Sama from DSLRmagazine is not certainly someone that spreads rumors without having heard something from his reliable sources. We already told you on MirrorlessRumors that Leica is definitely going to make a new mirrorless system, without the expensive rangefinder system. We have been told that the complex rangefinder part of the costs alone $1500 Euro! Valentin Sama doesn’t know yet if the Leica mirrorless camera will be a clone or something completely new. One thing is certain, it will not have a Kodak sensor. The reason is that Kodak doesn’t have any CMOS sensor (which you need for live view). So the choice seems to be between the Panasonic Micro Four Thirds and the Sony APS-C sensor. Leica once said they didn’t join the m43 group because the sensor was to small. So what will it be a MFT camera or something completely new (and with Sony sensor)?
