I have used a Canon 5D for three years shooting weddings and commercial and I have tried Nikon's D3 as well. I was looking for a camera that was better quality and more portable and the M9 fits the bill!! Quality of picture compaired to the Canon 5D is amazing! there is no contest at all, with the D3 only at higher ISO's does the Nikon win. Sharpness of the lenses is amazing! I use 28, 50 and 90 and all are great, the 28 is unreal! compaired with Canon's 16-35 2.8L it makes the Canon look ...

I am delighted by this camera. With a compact lens (28, 35, 40 mm), I can put it in my jacket pocket, carry it around with ease and get spectacular pictures. OK, I admit it, I do love owning the top of the line classic M rangefinder. I have owned an M3 for some time, and love it. The M9 is the only digital camera that has made me as happy. Problems: None

After two months and a lot of picturetaking I find this camera simply a most remarkable piece of equipment - the only thing I would recommend buying is the Thumbs-Up making it even more secure to hold. Problems: None so far

The image quality is amazing. A full frame rangefinder is clearly a technical challenge but worth it as it gets the best out of the absolutely fantastic range of Leica lenses. Some of the issues with the M8 have been addressed in this version, but irritatingly for the price some have not. Problems: Shutter still too noisy. LCD screen is awful and far too slow. Camera will lock up if you overload the buffer (taking too many pictures in one burst) and can only be reset by removing battery. I ...
