Re: m39 lenses on GXR

when you actually put the GXR-M and Leica M8/M9 together on a table, you find that while the M is larger, it's not that much larger. the shape is different, and it feels a bit bulkier where you grip it, but the lack of a protrusion for the viewfinder makes it overall feel slimmer and helps it get in and out of a bag more easily.

that said, a GXR-M and a Leica M are completely different kinds of cameras. beyond the fact that they both take the same lenses, they work entirely differently in the hand and to the eye. and with respect to their technology.

pick one of them on the basis of what kind of camera you want to use, not which one costs more or less.
