Lu Heng: Is it just me, or your test pictures are getting better? I enjoyed some of them as photographs.
And I think the lens are not bad at all.

I had the exact same feeling. There are some very good photos among these samples. Warning: You may forget to look for lens 'errors', etc! :-)

Well done Leica. As can be seen, B&W still sometimes is superior. I like the dpr samples from this camera and the samples and 100 pct crops are of course much better than what we usually get out of our (more advanced) compact, m4/3 or DSLR cameras, with all their 'filters', sometimes more or less natural colors and occasionally therefrom converted B&Ws....
Hopefully this first Leica B&W niche attempt could develop into an X3-Monochrome with a summilux 50mm/1.4 equivalent, which could be more within reach of us lower/middle class amateurs. E.g. as a 'once in our life' investment supplement to our color cameras.

On Shooting with the Leica M9-P article (648 comments in total)

Thanks for the article. Although it is also far above my camera budget, as most european made equipment is, I found it an interesting article. It only increased my lust for this camera, despite some of the irrelevant shortcomings. Only find it a pity that the shutter sound is louder than in the filmdays. Same goes for my Pen; too loud.
I found some of picture samples to be very good actually and satisfying for such a camera, although I know I can sometimes also get some good photos with my cheap Ixus. But that is also irrelevant
Funny how some people react, just because they are not willing to or able to pay for or appreciate qualities, that for some others mean a lot.
