(FT4) Leica X1 probably real and surely not MicroFourThirds!

We contacted our sources and they told us the camera is probably real! And the sensor is a APS-C sensor (x 1.5). That’s a strange move from Leica, they want go their own way and not join the successfully MicroFourThirds standard. Let’s see what happens the September 9th when Leica is going to unveil their new products. At least you can enjoy the new Panasonic GF1 ;)

Here you have the specs

  • 12 mp APSC CEMOS sensor
  • Leica Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 ASPH l;ens (equivalent to 35mm)
  • Manual exposure operations (shutter dial/aperture dial
  • Autofocus
  • Built-in flash (this is the circle cover on top right)
  • Bundled with Adobe Lightroom
  • Made in Germany
