Now Leica have waved another one at us. A sealed Leica box on their rumours page that supposedly contains a Leica M Mini. And then a ream of speculation as to what this is. Mirrorless camera? APSC camera? Electronic viewfinder camera? Colonel Mustard in the library with a lead pipe?
Leica are counting on their loyal fans to whip themselves into a fevered frenzy waiting for the launch. They know their customers. I expect that we will start to get phone calls later this afternoon asking us if we stock it, and when will it arrive, and how much does it cost, and they can get it cheaper...I know OUR customers.
Folks, we can promise you. And we are prepared to back up that promise. We stand behind every rumour you can invent. We are particularly certain that it will, and if it does not, it will not be our fault.
Personally, I am hoping that whatever it is can be introduced with sausages and beer...and that this time I get an invitation. I may not be able to understand the complex nature of international business or the niceties of optical science, but I have mastered sausage and beer...
