    Bob translated


    Leica's CEO Rudi Spiller has just via Youtube and Vimeo new product introductions on 9 September 2009 announced! Original sound from the video:

    On 9 September Leica will introduce a series of groundbreaking new products - designed and manufactured for all photographers, beginners and professionals.

    »Video announcement on Youtube
    »Video Announcement on Vimeo

    Live performances via video feed

    Leica offers an online video transmission of the event, who wants to follow him live, must register in advance with email address:

    "To register for the video transmission

    Deadline is 15 clock in Germany, in other time zones:

    9:00 Clock New York City
    14:00 London Clock
    Clock 17:00 Moscow
    21:00 Beijing Clock
    22:00 Clock Tokyo
    Live coverage

    I will do my best to spot, report live and in color - small updates in between I will publish via Twitter:

    "Leica Forum @ Twitter

    And once I have more information than hard facts and pictures, I set up a separate area in the forum to make them accessible to all!
    I think you posted ...

    A few more good days excitement wishes
    Andreas

    Not much, really...

    It´s just the usual blurb about the skilled, dedicated designers and workers diligently producing tools for discerning & accomplished photographers....

    It does, however, state that there will indeed be several new and important products revealed on /9/9/09, so now we got it from the horse´s mouth...

    But no new details, and no glimpses (I assume that the dSLR shown is indeed the S2; I´m none too familiar with its looks...).

    Re: Utube video about 090909

    I don't speak German, but it appears to me that the new products will be a line of those tiny rectangular Euro-eyeglasses. If you think about it, there's really no need for eyeglass lenses bigger than a viewfinder.

    Anyone planning to watch?

    Bob - you might as well ask for it back, otherwise you'll be busted for trying to break in to her house at around 9.30 on the 9th

    Re: Utube video about 090909

    If they're going to announce an "M9," why release a video dwelling on the M8 in such loving detail?

    They could just as easily have shown Rolf skillfully hand-crafting away without showing the M8 nameplate.

    Makes me wonder if there really is going to be a new M announcement, or at least if they're really going to move away from the established "M8" name.

    I don't think it is an M8, check out the screen shot, see the ISO button... looks to be a new M

    I don't think it will be as disastrous as the Pen curtain stuff. At least, I hope, it will not be.

    I am truly interested in the M9 if the rumors (the aspects that appeal to me) are correct.

    Too bad I sold the tri-elmar finder recently.

    I hate to add to this, but Bender's screen shot also shows a menu difference: there's an "Auto" option for lens detection.

    Re: Utube video about 090909

    I posted this earlier at the LUF

    At 54 seconds you see a dedicated ISO button
    At 58 Seconds you see the top plate without a counter or battery indicator
    You also see the step in the top plate like an MP
    Lens detect with an auto setting

    Its not an M8!

    Now this is evidence I can accept as pointing to an M9.

    Guy I was able to get one as well and will be in NYC ...so I am going. My guess though is that it will be a video feed followed by questions. Anything more ..like physical objects would be a big surprise. I will of course post anything I can find out beyond the press release..but I bet its a "tight" announcement.

    One word: Panaleica

    Well, maybe that is really a contraction. Or a bastardization.

    Is anal-retentive hyphenated?

    Okay, now this is starting to look pretty interesting. The menus and even the button labels could simply point to a lightly revised M8, but the different top cover with no LCD does seem to imply that something more is afoot.

    IF there is product in hand, I am rather surprised at just how fast Leica has "gotten it in gear"

    the DMR was a collaborative effort but much of the digital was done outside, the M8 was mechanically a Leica but firmware was was done outside. by the time we see the M8.2 i think firmware was brought in house. a steady progression ramping up to speed.

    It is amazing that they could bring both the S2 and the M9 up at the same time. Had it been Canon or Nikon no big deal, but Leica sure has come a long way in a short amount of time.... even with all of the growing pains with the M8, a world wide recession, numerous captains at the wheel, all in all i think they should be applauded for what they have accomplished.

    I would be happy to see Leica dust-off their image and do some new stuff, but I have put my wallet in the safe deposit box and mailed the key to my mother.
