    I head that Leica are introducing a Full frame digital R that accepts AF lenses, I wonder if they will make a 35mm version?

    There will be an R10 auto-focus released. It will be a full frame 24x36mm CCD digital camera. I have heard nothing about a auto-focus film camera.

    I think the new mount is called an "S" mount. There are pictures at the Leica website.

    according to the website the new S system is completely independent of the R system, utilizing a 30mm x 45mm sensor and larger bayonet mount. it's nice to see a digital camera with a shutter speed dial, however.
