| p.1 #13 · Leica announced the Leica T APS-C mirrorless camera |
Looking at the body shell, the twin control dials are remarkably similar to the NEX-7 and a6000. It'd be very interesting if Leica is pulling a Hasselblad, but actually releases premium lenses to use with the system. That'd be just as good as Zeiss expanding its Touit lineup, wouldn't it? I mean: Sony camera guts (for a camera that doesn't compete with any Sony offering), Leica construction and interface (which appeals to Leica customers but doesn't compete with existing products), Leica optics (need I say more?), and Panasonic autofocus (allowing them to diversify into the larger-than-m43 space without having to release their own brand of cameras). Heck, maybe even Hasselblad is backing away from their premium remade cameras and sold those rights to Leica, which is doing far more with the idea. That's the best possible outcome I can think of--and I don't think it is too far from being reasonable.
