Leica adds a new entry-level camera to their M-System with the M-E (Typ 240)

The camera will be their lowest priced M-System model.
Leica M-E Typ 240

Getting into Leica's M-System is going to be a little less expensive with the launch of the new M-E (Typ 240). Coming in at $3,995, the Leica M-E will feature a Leica MAX 24 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, an exclusive anthracite top and base plate paint finish with black cowhide leather, an upgraded 2GB buffer from the Leica M-P, a 3" display, compatibility with the optional EVF accessory, and 1080p video with the same "Leica Look" you would get from their images. Now the question is: a Leica Q2 or the flexibility (and the high price tags) of the M-Mount lens library. 

Available late July.
