M9 - getting into a rangefinder from SLR
Oct 28, 2010

Hi all, wanted to share a new chapter in photography with all of you. I've been a dSLR user for years currently using 1DMk4 with various lenses. Bought the X1 few months ago and fell in love with Leica since. Got a call from my dealer yesterday and pulled the trigger on a M9 with a 50/1.4 Summilux. Seriously I have no idea what I am doing.....yet. Manual focus is just so different, last time I manual focus was probably 25 years ago. The way you hold the M9 is also very different than SLRs. Anyway, here are the first couple of pictures (no PP) straight out of the camera. I think they definitely has the Leica feel, lol.
