Leica S Medium Format Camera Coming at 2014 Photokina Show?

Leica S Medium Format camera ?

A Leica representative at the NAB 2014 Show has 'leaked' information about a new Medium Format camera, called the Leica S, that may be announced at the upcoming Photokina Show in Cologne, Germany in September. It will have a 40-50MP medium format CMOS sensor and 4K video.

Considering all the recent rumors about how many companies are planning to enter the Medium Format arena, this may be another hat thrown into the ring. PhaseOne, Pentax and Hasselblad have all announced their Medium Format cameras based on the CMOS sensor technology. I am afraid, sooner or later, Canon may be 'forced' to enter this niche market as well. This will be an unwanted distraction and questionable strategy if it happens.
