UPDATE: The first image of the Leica M11 has been leaked online. And while it only gives a glimpse at the top of the camera, it's enough to spot a couple of key differences from other Leica bodies.

As previously reported, the Leica M11 is set to feature a 50MP image sensor with variable resolution when shooting in RAW, offering additional 36MP and 15MP options. As also previously reported, though, the camera may miss its apparently intended 11/11 release date due to the ongoing worldwide component shortages.
