Is This the Full-Frame 18-Megapixel Leica M9 and Mysterious Leica X1? [Rumor]

A supposed shot of Leica’s M9—expected to be announced 9/9/09—complete with specs, was found on this Flickr page that’s now locked, and it looks way interesting: a full-frame 18-megapixel CCD sensor. Oh, and what’s this, the Leica X1?

The X1 looks just as intriguing, actually, taking a different tack with a 12-megapixel CMOS APS-C sized sensor and funky grip handle. Neither of the pages look like obvious fakes to us, though the specs, which sound damn impressive, are obviously more up in the air authenticity-wise. Still, we’ll know for sure come Wednesday, which we’re a little more excited for right now. [Thanks Jonti!]
