Will there be a sort of interchangeable camera?
Leica UK’s Richard Swan gave some very vague tidbits about the future Leica mirrorless (non rangefinder!) system. He talked with the guys over at Techradar (Click here) saying that the camera will fall between the compact X1 and the full-frame M9. And: “Swan expected that any future interchangeable lens cameras from Leica would be compatible with M-mount lenses. As the X1 uses a fixed prime 24mm lens, perhaps we could see an X1 styled camera with removable lenses.“. We can speculate with a price range somewhere in between 2.000 and 3.000 Euro.

In a previous interview Kaufmann (the big chief from Leica) confirmed the new system will at least sue an APS-C sensor (if not larger) and be announced at Photokina 2012 (in September).
P.S.: There is a very first Leica M9-P hands-on at PocketLint (Click here).
