For years, Leica was the only camera manufacturer to dominate the digital rangefinder camera space–and while they still are it seems like they could have a contender soon. Meet the Konost FF, which according to Photo Rumors is currently a project happening that aims to create a full frame digital rangefinder.

The camera isn’t using the traditional mechanical rangefinder but instead one that uses electronics overlayed on an optical viewfinder. At the heart is a 20MP full frame sensor, The body is made from an aluminum alloy and in many ways looks like the Leica T camera.

The mirrorless camera world was dominated by Leica for a while then everyone else got into it. With Sony newly entering the full frame mirrorless camera world, it only makes sense that everyone else is going to enter. To be fair, Epson tried to enter the camera world with a rangefinder and failed.

To be fair though, this camera doesn’t seem very traditional rangefinder-like in appearance–and Zeiss and Voigtlander both seem to have better designed bodies with their film offerings. More specs and a video are after the jump.
