    Time to squeeze in one more guess-fest?!?

    I know, only a few more hours until the big Leica reveal -- but after that it's going to be a long dry spell with [probably] nothing but Olympus EP-2 rumors over which to gossip... so...

    What do you make of this?
    [linked from Leicarumors.com]



    Anyone care to take a last-minute stab at the "something" they might announce?

    Here are a few guesses [and reactions] to get you started...

    "Leica is proud to announce that...

    "...Annie Leibovitz owes us money." [Pfft. Whom doesn't she owe money?]

    "...the whole M9 thing was a hoax. There is no such camera. The pictures in that leaked brochure were all taken with our new X1 camera -- a compact camera so good its pictures fooled everyone." [That whooshing sound you hear is dealers absconding to the Bahamas with deposit money.]

    "...we have been bought out by Samsung and are cancelling our current products to work on the next generation of NX cameras and camera phones." [That thumping sound you hear is Leica purists throwing themselves off their hotel balconies.]

    Your turn...

    I prefer to believe it is Nikon rather than Samsung, and not a takeover but a cooperation about 35mm DSLRs
    Imagine "Nikon + Leica" taking up competition with "Sony Alpha + Zeiss" ...
    That would make an interesting race for affordable 35mm DSLR cameras combined with magic optics.
    Just wishful thinking, I know

    I know it's fantasy but Leica glass for the Nikon mount that didn't require stop down metering and worked with the CPU would have me salivating at the dealer's door with a fistful of cash (and a trunk full of Nikon & Zeiss ZF glass for sale) ...
