What to expect from Leica Next

Window Light, Leica M8, Summicron 35mm

Everyone was expecting a new Leica L mount camera the other week to be announced during the official opening of Leica’s new HQ.  It did not arrive but its still expected soon.  We are also starting to get rumours of a new Leica Medium Format camera to arrive before the end of the year.  The Leica S system is great, and the lens and quality cannot be faulted with the exception of a far to high rate of failure of autofocus motors in the lens, which Leica say they have now fixed.

With high end now hitting 200 MP and mirrorless cropped medium format at 50 MP from Hasselblad and Fuji the 37.5 MP Leica S2 is looking out classed.  They need something soon.
