I just got this information from a Japanese Leica Friend.  It is confirmed
that the Bessa-L is a Nikon FM-10 body.  The market price will be 10% off
the listed price but you must add another 5% for tax and shipping.  In his
own words "This is a regular product.  You don't need to be in hurry!".

 Super wide Heliar 15/4.5 ASPH   Silver or black. made by Cosina.
 4.5 to 16 or 22 with helicoid INF to 0.4m
 Price is 65,000 yen with finder.

 Super wide skoper 25/4  Silver or black. made by Cosina.
 4 to 16 or 22 with helicoid INF to 0.7m
 Click stop at INF,3m and 1m.
 Price is 45,000 yen with finder.

Konica has made a M-mount Hexer 2.  This will be offered with M-mount
Hexanon 28/2.8, 35/2 and 60/1.2.  Launch date is still TBD.  Looks like
finally Leica will be getting some competition on the M.
