Leica improves on tradition with a new touchscreen interface and a slippery aluminum body.
Though wider than competitors, it's still smaller in the other dimensions.
The camera will come in black and silver versions, though the black one won't be available until 2 months after the silver. Here, they're posing with the block of aluminum from whence they came.
It has a built-in flash, but it doesn't tilt back to bounce the light.
Leica will offer an adapter to use older M-mount lenses.

The nicely designed interface lets you drag and drop the most frequently used settings into the main screen. You can also see what a fingerprint magnet it is.
Here's a clearer view of the interface.
There are two context-sensitive dials to use in conjunction with the touchscreen.
The T series will initially ship with an 18-56mm f3.5-5.6 lens and this 23mm f2 lens.
Using a small tool, you eject the covers from the strap connectors.

Leica will offer grippier silicone covers for the camera.
