According to the new rumor flashed over the web, Leica’s next M/SL camera body must be high resolution, but it’s still not confirmed if this high resolution Leica camera body is an M-Mount or an SL-Mount. We have to wait to see if Leica make any announcement at Photokina show of this year.
That was the only conclusion that made sense to me, since it would be illogical for Leica to design new higher resolving lenses for other camera makers, like Sony. And from a business perspective, it made sense, since it injects into the Leica product line a reason for Leica owners to update their lenses, plus the need for them to buy a new high resolution Leica camera body. The only question now is whether this speculated camera body is an M-Mount or an SL-Mount.
This is a Photokina year, so I can only speculate that Leica may make such an announcement then.
