A "Prominent Photographic Magazine Editor" who was at PMA sent me this:
>Quick note.  Although Konica would not say word one about the camera, I
>bumped into Stefan Daniel from Leica (Director of the M camera programme). 
>Stefan knows quite a bit about the camera and has seen it.  He confirmed
>that it uses M bayonet, and that Konica will initially offer 28, 50 and 90
>mm lenses.  He said that while Leica is not happy about it there is nothing
>they can do since any patents on the M mount are long expired.  He promised
>to e-mail me more information if he gets it.
