One of the most unique cameras to be announced at Photokina didn't come from one of the usual suspects. We're talking about the new Zenit M, a camera built in collaboration with Leica. Based on the Leica M (Type 240), Zenit modified the M's software and hardware and gave it a fixed 35mm f/1 lens that is designed and manufactured entirely in Russia. No other details have been announced other than the fact that it will definitely have a 24MP sensor and there aren't more details as to what these other hardware and software modifications will be.
The Zenit M will be available in Europe this December and Russia in January. An American release date has not been announced.
