Speculation: M11 on Nov. 18th, and TL and CL might be discontinued

Discussion in 'Leica and Rangefinders' started by Karim Ghantous, Nov 12, 2021.

  1. Perhaps, if there is an M11, they decided to wait until November 18th. Why? Because there is no 18mm prime lens in the M line ATM. Perhaps they're going to announce one? And perhaps they deliberately decided to launch both on the 18th, with November standing for the 'M11' and the 18th standing for the '18mm'.

    I also wonder if the TL and CL lines are going to be discontinued. The lenses won't be, I don't think, because some people might want compact options to shoot with their SL cameras in APS-C mode. Or, they might be releasing a compact body with a 36mm sensor, kind of like the Sony A7C.

  3. An M11 would of course be released on the 11th day of the 11th month, at 11.11 am, in the 11th year. So just wait a bit longer.

  4. With the new M11,and Leica going back to basics, could it be a pinhole camera?

    Save a few dollars more on lenses I suppose.

  5. 18mm?

    The 18mm f3.8 Super Elmar-M works pretty darn well on an M262 or any other M body you'd want to mount it on. No need waiting for some more ultra, ultra-expensive replacement. Want one, get it. They're out there.
