I've heard it before
There has been rumblings in the past about Leica using a Canon sensor in the evolution of the M.

I received an email today stating that Canon and Leica are in negotiations for Canon to supply the sensor in the upcoming Leica M9. It's written the M9 will utilize a version of the 5D Mark II sensor. The new Leica is to be launched at Photokina 2010 in Germany.

Yes, a full frame digital M!

CR's Take
I've heard about a Leica & Canon marriage before. It's obvious Leica needs a better solution than the Kodak sensor currently in the M8.

This may be nothing more than someones wish…… and a great wish it is.
