This is the first leaked photograph of Leica’s upcoming Mini M — a camera that the German company first started teasing on its website last week.
The leak comes courtesy of Mirrorless Rumors, which spotted the photo and specs on a French iPad publication:
The Leica Mini M will reportedly be an APS-C sensor camera with a fixed zoom lens. The fully aluminum body looks like a Leica M rangefinder, there’s a 16.1 megapixel sensor on the inside, and on the front is a permanently attached Leica Elmar 28-70mm (35mm equivalent) f/3.5-6.4 lens.
There is no built in viewfinder, but an electronic viewfinder can be attached to the hotshoe mount. The camera also features Full HD video recording, and comes bundled with a copy of Adobe Lightroom.
If you take a look at Leica’s website today, you’ll see that the teaser that first appeared last week has changed a bit. The once fully closed box is now slightly open, showing the corner of the Leica Mini M:
According to Leica, the new Mini M will be unveiled at an official launch event on June 11th.
