still early innings
1

but this camera amazes me

spot on colors from AWB, brilliantly executed control system, a perhaps too adaptable menu system, but very logical ...its built like a Leica & comes in at less than I paid for my other two digital Ms, the 8 & 9!

my greatest delight has been trying it with my M lenses ...bit annoyed that I can't enter other makes lenses, but given their effort with this beauty, they deserve to make their investment back in lenses

recognizes Leica chipped lenses perfectly, but of course all is manual

the AF is quickly learned & very tune-able

the horizon most elegant 4 axis I have seen implemented in an EVF which is gorgeous

I have not done much videography, but so far I have been gobsmocked by capabilities of this aspect of the camera

still learning what it can do & I have much to learn
