opticaloptimum: I would love an M9-P. I am prepared to accept the limitations to get the superb Leica lenses. Just look on Fred Miranda reviews to see all the comments about having good or bad copies of Canon lenses (even their professional L series lenses).
A secondary advantage over most DSLRs is the small size of the Leica bodies and lenses.
after seeing the samples I must admit I really don't get the appeal
new case and new filters, wow this is huge! They couldn't even add the SB-700 rear controls at least??
