Fans have been waiting six months for the prematurely announced Leica M, the first M rangefinder body to feature live view and the option of an electronic viewfinder. I hear mutterings that the long wait might be over within a day or two. Pessimists had been suggesting the newcomer would be delayed until April or, even, May; but I have heard mutterings about an arrival in London very soon, perhaps as early as next week. I have had mine on order since September, so I am hoping to be quick off the mark with this one. More details when I get my hands on the new all-black beast.
Update 7 March: Still no call from my dealer. I heard from another source that M’s for early custimers might not arrive until the end of March.
