Re: Just Switched to the RX1 from the M9

I tried the M9 recently for one day and really liked it.  Surprisingly, it's a larger and heftier camera than I imagined.

Do not make the mistake I made years ago when I sold my Leica M7 and three Leica lenses.  Now if I want to get back into the Leica system the cost would be prohibitive (and unjustifiable).

I too use the RX1 and absolutely love it.  Not only are the photos first rate, but the files allow for extensive cropping should the need arise.  It is far and away, the perfect camera for me.  Since I do a lot of street photography I have one main wish - a firmware upgrade that allows for better zone focusing (e.g., a greater range of focal distances, as in the Fuji X100s, stated in feet rather than meters).  Although this will make the camera larger, I would also like an internal, built-in EVF rather than the add-on - but that's for the RX2!

Enjoy your RX1.
