    My Crystal Ball sees a new Leica M coming…new Olympus..Sony..Predictions!
    This sounds more like wishful thinking to me ? How would Leica make the digital M more slim ? The sensor and the electronics need space.

    I'm also surprised that Huff believes its possible to add a builtin EVF and still make the camera cheaper.

    I would think Leica will introduce an electronic rangefinder like the Konost camera - because thats cheaper. Meaning the Rangefinder wont work anymore without current.

    Aside from that, probably a new sensor. Like the one from the Leica SL.

    Thinner camera is very desirable. The dimension from the back of the camera to lens mount is the one need to be reduced the most.
    If they put in the EVF but remove the rangefinder it would cost a lot less. The Leica rangefinder system is very expensive to make.

    They will never do that because people would not buy them unless they have optical rangefinder
