Leica M8.2 could be an unpleasant discovery, belive me.

The facts:

  • it's not full frame but APS-C, so same as NEX. (M9 is full frame).

  • Has a awful sensor (and I mean really awful, noise starts to be invasive at 400 ISO, 800 ISO is unusable except for B/W and small scale printing

  • Display is ridicuolus in size, resoultion and color.

You would end up in having a camera that takes photos much worse than your Nex and costing 4X.

M9 is FullFrame and has an improved sensor (not on par with Nex-5, but way better than M8.2).

What makes Leica photos unique are lenses, not the digital body.

If you really want it I suggest waiting to buy an M9, for what is worth (fullframe and rangefinder focusing).

My 2 cents
