Wow... a revived M9. A tactic that Apple used???? Keeping an 'old' model in 'new' color and call it a new camera. The M-E is basically a M9 in spec. Same sensor, same resolution, same features. But I like it. Now I can have a weird colour Leica new for a used M9 camera.
The new M is rather interesting but do Leica user really use Liveview and movie model anyway? I don't. I just shoot. So the M-E makes more sense and more true to traditional M users. A photographic tool. Though I would like to see how well the new CMOS sensor performs.
I will keep the M9 for color photos and keep my M6 or MP for b&w film thank you very much! For the price, you can have a brand new MP and configure to have a 0.85x finder. I would do it rather than spending this sort of money for M Mono. Film is going but still be here for a while until Leica get the M10 out eventually.
