    Re: M10 to be Announced?

    Well, it's fun to speculate what will be announced on May 10th. Here's my guess

    1. A M9 B&W (monochrome) body. It will have M9 in the name (and possibly nameplate) and either come bundled with Nik software.....possibly a version specific for this camera or incorporated as part of in-camera menu options. Some other big questions are whether any modifications and changes (other than the sensor/firmware) are introduced with this body, such as no rear LCD and/or optional EVF or some other feature that sort of points to it's use in a future M10. My guess is it will simply be a M9 B&W (with Nik associated involvement) with maybe one interesting change or option. If I had to guess on price...thats a tough one, but think they will go no higher than the current M9 price.

    2. Leica X2

    3. One lens...possibly what many have suspected, a 50mm Summicrom asph.
