Not at all disappointed. M9M seems to be a superb machine targeted at a niche.

I wrote that too - it's a niche product BUT still in the same body as way back in 2009 - THAT's what I am disappointed about, no problem that it is monochrome only...whoever want's it (for sure not so many)...

I agree with Michael R of LL:

"Frankly, it's going to be depressing to read some of the online forums over the next few weeks, where self-proclaimed experts are going to question the raison d'etre of the M Monochrome....."

I disagree with Michael Reichmann here and I am NOT proclaiming I am an expert - but it is a fact that both bodies - X2 and M9-M are the old ones, have not been redesigned, upgraded with at least some parts which would come close to be state of the art, at least what's already been technical possible way back in 2009.

So M. Reichmann is mixing things up here - the "needs" of today's photographer is NOT the point - it's what you get is really old technology for still a very high price.
