Though Leica has accelerated their production cycles since a certain time, I doubt there will be a M9 on the shelves after Photokina 08. They'll not own enough FF sensors at that time, likely. Maybe there will be an announcement of it, available fo summer 2009 earliest, or so. The third rumoured project after the M9 and R10 was the compact M - aka digital CL. No new sensor needed, just reduce the M9. This one may hit in Cologne in septembre, and this woudn't be that bad. And, of course, they'll proudly present some new rebadged Panasonic products.
