Subject: [LRflex] Leica announces the Digital Leicaflex!
 
A press release from Solms has just announced that the Digital Leicaflex is 
starting prodution today.

The original machines used to build the Leciaflex SL2, in storage since 
production ceased in 1975, have been shipped to Panasonic's camera division in 
Japan.
The new camera will have a full-frame 30 megapixel sensor, keep the original 
mirrorbox, but will have a new vertically travelling electronic shutter 
offering 
faster speeds and even less noise than the original.
The standard body will be made of composites rather than metal (weight 450 g.), 
but a fully metal "classic" body will also be available.

Compatibility with all R lenses ever produced has been assured (it even has 
mirror lock up and can use the 21mm f/3.4).
Other feature include (excludable) focus confirmation, space inside for a spare 
accumulator, sensor cleaning and (excludable) sensor based anti-shake.

Retail price should be $ 700
