On Shooting with the Leica M9-P article (647 comments in total)
In reply to:

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.

Money aside, my M9 is like shooting medium format quality in a discreet package. The quality of image is remarkable and different to dslrs... The shooting experience is back to basics and does make you shoot differently to dslrs... I have a d800 and have always been a Nikon user, but the Leica is very different and has a vey different signature which you can easily spot when comparing prints. For some situations you can't improve in a dslr, but my preference is Leica where the situation doesn't dictate the camera.
They take some time to get used to and they're not for everyone... I use mine for work on location and I personally feel the image quality is unbeatable....
