I strongly doubt that Leica would use a real-time LCD monitor on 
their  Digital-M.  The design of CCD/CMOS cihps for real-time vs. 
synchronous are different, and you get higher quality with the chips 
that can only take one picture at a time.

It'll be interesting, however, to see if Leica adopts the analogue 
shutter mechanism such as in the Digital-Bessa (aka Epson R-D1).
