Leica has finally broken its silence on a possible full-frame camera as they clarified their position on the Leica M8 Rangefinder camera.

Here are some excerpts from the press release:

"There has been much recent speculation concerning the M8, but we can confirm that the current design remains our most important product for 2008/9. As ownership increases, users seem to really appreciate that it is a faithful reproduction of a true classic M, but in digital form." Says David Bell (Managing Director, Leica Camera Ltd., UK).

Bell continues, "the award winning photographer, Tom Stoddart is now to use two M8s on a major EU project. He is a life long Leica film M user and is already in praise of the quality of the M8 digital and its design, which enables him to continue his discreet, intimate and mobile photographic style.  It is interesting to note that Tom doesn’t concern himself with camera specifications: for him, the image is all.
