I love this baby. The genuine article, save for: - ON/OFF switch terribly sensitive, I hate how it flicks to self-timer easily. - Buffer overload is one thing but even worse is trying to chimp (review pix) while buffering, or push PLAY before the camera booted up: it may fry the card, makes it unreadable! Happened twice, once real bad: I had to have a superdooper pro SD card with one-off event shots rescued in Lexar headquarters (kudos to Lexar for customer service) because no rescue software ...

It makes me think more about the pictures I take which is great. It's also smaller and lighter than the DSLRs that I used to carry about. Oh, and the picture quality's great so far. Having said all that, it clearly can't do everything and I sometimes struggle to focus quickly (but then my DSLR would sometimes not (auto) focus quickly either, depending on subject and lens in use). Auto ISO works very well for interior pictures, I don't use it out of doors in good light. The other learning ...

Having used the film M's since the mid 80s I was dying to get one of these, I had to trade in extensively to own one. Leica equipment has never been cheap, so the price is hard to understand, but when you see the quality not so hard to appreciate. When you get past the cost, the camera is unique and has no equals. A full frame M is an amazing concept, it's a clever design. The odd bad reviews look like they are from people who have a problem with rangefinder cameras, no one should buy this ...

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 ...

fotocamera eccellente,per costruzione ,per qualità delle immagini,soprattutto per la tridimensionalità che deriva dall'accoppiata del sensore con le ottiche M :ciò che manca a Canon,Nikon etc:Fotocamera adatta a fotografi che hanno usato il sistema Leica M,non per tutti

Had the M9 for 3 weeks. Construction and image quality is superb! Leica lenses really shine with this sensor. This is the easiest, basic camera to use. Aim,frame, focus and shoot!. No crazy menus, no bells and whistles, just the basics. You really learn photography with this camera. Even fine Jpegs look great! Problems: A little high priced, but if you have Leica M lenses, this camera is a no brainer!
