What is the point? Then again, it is Leica...

You mean like "there's no point in Leica"? Well, ^_^ at least a red one?
Did you see the size of this standard zoom?
I am sure there will be buyers, but this Leica doesn't look crafted anymore.
In temrs of pure specs it can't compete with the rest of the mirrorless gang, I hope the user expirience is better.
It looks a class product and no doubt is, but we have only seen the headline specs, ( price) . I also wonder how much of the camera is in partnership with another company vis a vis the viewfinder.
It brings Leica out of the cul de sac range-finder bracket with it's compromised OVF when using wides and teles and makes a Leica finally a versatile camera for any focal length, in line with a, dare I say it, DSLR, even without the reflex, although they have been there before! The 90-280mm lens will send traditional Leiconians's heads spinning.
As for the sensor Klaus, I think there's little point in having Leica glass (when you've paid their prices) on anything less than 24 Mps, in fact I'm truly surprised that they didn't use 36 Mps. I'm hooked on that Mp size both in APSc and FF.
This brings Leica into the new world,
I thought that the new thing is embedded phase detect pixel and high frequency readout from the sensors.
I am not sure all 3 lenses will be available when the camera hits the market.
