    I don't think it will be far off in price compared to the X1. What is another $2.5G?

    I think this is a GREAT move for Leica. Right up their alley. Find a small niche and produce a great camera in it. Other than the Phase One Achromatic (39 megapixel medium format monochrome back) I can't think of any other monochrome (modern/commercially-available) camera.

    I agree that it's a fair price for a niche product slotted above the regular versions. I like that they're keeping the price in line with the premium version of the main camera.

    Now as for the pricing of the new 50... Yeah I think they meant to put a 3 where that 7 is. I'm more than happy with my 50 Planar for less than 1/10th the price when I bought it.

    Achromatic + still is a true monochrome (current- to be very specific) digital sensor (along with the Megavision's offerings) with true monochrome output!

    [This will be debated at length in the time to come for sure. ]

    I do agree that Leica have done something very clever!

    Hey Vivek, I hear of Hermes editions. At Leica bargain basement prices at that. ( Euro 40k )

    Is it official? They were having dinner, the last I heard. Maybe they have all gone to sleep! After all that music and drink

    Im not sure if its official, but I saw it on leica rumours , also the interesting things it goes to ISO 10,000 . I bet the grain emulates film grain too

    The bundled Silver Efex Pro 2 certainly will help that emulation.

    $7k... that's around 1,500 rolls of Pan F, a roll a week the next 30 years. Not exactly ISO 10,000, but the M & M isn't exactly ISO 50 either. I think I'll stick with the Pan F

    I think you got hold of the confidential M10 image.

    The M9M has no red dot.
