shaocaholica: There's a solution many M9 owners have for the lackluster rear LCD. Just lose it altogether. When you shot film, you don't know what the photo looked like till it was developed and that 'charm' is missing when shooting digital so if you're going in for a penny on retro handling you might as well go in for a pound.
I have DSLR's (1s MKIII + 5D + 350D), SLR's (Contax AX, Leica R3 electronic), a few P&S cameras, a film RF (Contax G2) and a digital FF RF - an M9. With a decent pile of lenses. Each has its unique place in my worldI'm incompetent with matters of deep technical knowledge about cameras and what matters to me is how the cameras lets me take the picture i want and if i like the results or not.With all due respect to all the 237 comments above mine, I don't think I have seen ANY comments with pictures supporting your stanceHere's why I love my M9 with all it's shortcomings -> i'm a minimalist with post processing. rarely spend more than a minute in LightRoom
