When Leica first teased the Mini M, I was ready to bet big on an APS-C mirrorless camera that accepts M-mount lenses. Then came the supposed leak that everyone pretty much took as gospel. It sure looked legit anyway.
The latest tease on the Leica website, however, casts doubt on the previous “leak” of the Mini M, which purportedly revealed its specs with a fixed lens in the 18-46mm range and a rather slow variable aperture of f/3.5-6.4. All in all, it was underwhelming and left many of us scratching our heads. [click to continue…]

The Hasselblad Lunar should be released in the US this coming Thursday, May 30 at a New York launch event. As previously reported the Lunar is essentially a Sony NEX-7 with a fancier body and a $4,000+ higher price tag. [click to continue…]
Leica has its upcoming ‘Mini M’ camera listed on its website now. The ‘Mini M’ name appears to be where it fits in the lineup among Leica cameras, rather than the official model name.
No other information is known about the Mini M at this point; however, the logical conclusion would be that the Leica Mini M would be a rangerfinder-style, interchangeable lens, APS-C camera as a nice fit between the full frame Leica M and the fixed lens, APS-C Leica X2. Leica offers a newsletter signup on its website for future Mini M news.
