Re: Someone sell me on a leica please and thank you?

I have recently jumped into the world of Leica. I picked up a new M9 with a Summicron-M 50mm f/2 (I was waffling between that or the Zeiss 50mm f/1.5, chose the former primarily due to size). Size, weight and the allure of a digital rangefinder were the key reasons for why I got the setup.

My other shooting gear includes a Nikon D300 with numerous primes (incl. 35mm f/1.8 DX, 50mm f/1.4G, 85mm f/1.8D, 24mm PC-E, 105mm Macro) and zooms (Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8) and just got tired to carrying around the camera and 2-3 lenses around town.

I'm looking at thinning out my Nikon lens collection to fun a 28mm and a 90mm lens for my M9, though keeping the specialty lenses.

Once I get over this cold, I'll actually get out there and start the learning process
