    Well.. their web site is all black.. no access. I was daydreaming over a Noctilux .95, looking to see just how much I couldn't have :D when I discovered the site 'away message'.

    BLACK will turn into COLOURS at 8pm (GMT)

    Any guesses?

    They're launching green only, red only and blue only versions of the Monochrome? :biggrin:

    I know a few of the Leica reviewers are in Germany "for an event." That can mean only one thing... new stuff.

    A complete line of lenses for the Pentax Q? Nah, probably the M10.

    Here in California that means noon today... 30 minutes from now.

    Anything else besides the M10?

    I was thinking color along the line of custom cameras you know like the Hermes. That would be kinda lame for Photokina though.

    X2 Edition Paul Smith, Orange, British Racing Green and Flourescent Yellow. Colour! There are a bunch of ala carte X2's as well with matching color strap/case accessories.

    A 24MP liveview rangefinder (and movies). A "stripped down" 18MP standard rangefinder. DPR is failing so no more details than that.

    I reckon it'll be a 35mm camera that takes colour film

    The Leica M is now just "M". Not M10... just Leica M. Kind of like the "new" iPad.

    Splash proof, EVF option, R-lens adapert...

    Yes, noticed that too.
    They're obviously nervous and unsure about the offerings...
