Has anyone heard about the new Leica SL?

Leica just announced their competitor to the Sony A7 series.
A full frame mirrorless camera that records 4k video (4k@24fps & UHD@30fps) in 'L-log' to dual SD cards.
They have also announced a PL mount adapter.

Interesting that NFS hasn't picked up on this yet.

At $7,450 Body Only, I don't think Santa will be bringing me one for Xmas.

What's interesting is that Panasonic built most of the guts for this camera, so there's speculation if Panasonic might produce their own FF camera. ( personally I don't expect Panasonic to enter the FF market as there's already too much competition, but maybe some of the SL imaging tech might make it into next year's GH5 camera )

That would be pretty sweet. I like a lot of things about this camera (obviously the price is not one of those things..) at the very least some of these ideas might appear in more reasonably priced competitor's gear. :)

I don't think a panasonic gh5 will be full frame though... they would have to introduce a full new lens lineup etc... would be a major pain in the ass for them as for any people that would upgrade from any another panasonic camera.
