Newest (fake) Leica Mini M rumor.

Someone is making fun and is posting a new (fake) Leica Mini M rumor on Facebook. The creator of this hopes foe a faster “2.8-4.0” lens and a more high resolution 24MP sensor. Too bad this one is fake.

    Stop Press…

    The “new” Leica, is being made by Fujitsu…

    It’s called the Fuji X100s.

    Leica, is the new Kodak.

    The Pope is still a catholic.

      Fujitsu is not Fujifilm!

    Fake or not, without a viewfinder nor tilting screen, nothing to be proud of. I´d better buy the XE1 plus 18-55 for less than half the price.

      For just $300 more you can get a FF Sony RX1 with an amazing 35mm lens!

      Call now!

        Agree. If only Sony RX1 was not so expensive in Europe.. :(

    This is what the Leica Mini SHOULD have been to be a success – a contribution from someone frustrated….
    BTW: Serious Compacts has a comparison Fuji X-E1 and 18-55 vs Leica M9 with Zeiss 50mm. Files are downloadable and I found this:
    Before processing Leica was a lot crisper with more detail and more accurate colors. the Fuji a bit dull.
    After me bringing out the best from each file the difference was minor, the Leica file still have a tad better detail. In other aspect results were even. On important thing I did with the Fuji file was setting the white point. I also applied more sharpness.
    Conclusions: Careful processing in Lightroom 4.4 brings out the best from the X-trans sensor (standard Lightroom settings don’t). The 18-55mm zoom is excellent!
    I do not yet own a Fuji system, but I will go for the next iteration of Pro or E.

    And by the way: I still think the original leaks are fake, faker than this moke up shown in this post. If not, Leica managed to be ridiculous not only in prices but also in products. Guessing what will the next step be..

      I realized that the fake pics and the rumors were intentional but really a disaster for Leica, a while ago.

      Comparisons to the Lunar is not what Leica wanted to see, I guess. :D

    Based on the Leica Facebook post, I would say this is the real deal – fixed zoom lens, no Viewfinder but maybe a port for an add-on. Most exciting thing here might be the 24mp sensor but still nothing too sexy.
