This afternoon for us in the UK Leica make their press announcement and its now about definite that the announcement is going to be the new Leica T 701.
It is looking like a standard mirror less, none viewfinder compact system camera with a fancy touch screen, and with the ability to take Leica M glass as well as a new range of autofocus Leica T glass.
For most its likely to be too expensive and not offering anything that a Sony NEX or Fuji X camera cannot do better, but for those of us with Leica M glass its worth a serious consider as it will support coding on modern M glass and correct vignette and colour drift.

Its also going to integrate with the iPhone and iPad like many other recent mirror less releases and the iOS app has already been released.
According to Leica it will:
