Leica will announce a new camera in the M-series on June 11, as revealed by the company through its website, teasing both the shooter and the date.
It has been a long time since Leica fans have had reasons for enjoyment. However, good things come to those who wait, as the Germany-based manufacturer has begun teasing a new product on its website, which is boldly codenamed Mini M.
Leica Mini M teaser says we will find out all about the camera on June 11
Leica is already offering a powerful camera in the body of the M rangefinder. The “M” family is completed by the X2, which is the Micro M, and the D-Lux 6, which is the Nano M. There is still enough space between the cameras, but it seems like the German manufacturer will focus on filling the gap between the M and Micro M with the help of the Mini M.
The retail name of the upcoming Leica shooter remains unknown, as well as its list of specifications. It is worth saying that the rumor mill is usually in control of this stuff, therefore it is weird that not a single detail has surfaced about this new product so far.
Either way, Leica says that we will get to know its upcoming family member on June 11, presumably this year. The timing of the event is not known, but the company will most likely update its website with a press release in the early hours of June 11.
Leica Mini M will not be the rumored Panasonic-rebranded camera
Previously, it has been believed that Leica will launch several rebranded shooters from Panasonic. However, those products are not supposed to be a part of the M-series, which means that this is a brand new camera that will definitely be handmade in Germany, while Panasonic will have nothing to do with it.
As stated above, there is a worrying lack of information about the Leica Mini M, but do not fear, as there is plenty of time until June 11 to find out more.
On the other hand, the Leica M continues to be out of stock at Amazon, though the retailer says that it is expecting more information soon. The price stands at $5,450, though 3rd-party resellers are offering used and refurbished alternatives at discounted rates.
