Leica M9 - The M8, only much better.

I recommend the Leica M9...IF:

  • You like rangefinders
  • You don't mind a heavy camera
  • You can afford the insane price


If you don't meet these three pieces of criteria, then this is probably
not the ideal camera for you. If it is, then this is definitely the camera for you.
Leica has taken the M8, and put in a full-frame sensor, which delivers stunning photos.

Leica has addressed some of the handling issues with the M8, adding a
ISO button to make switching easier.


They added in a soft-release shutter mode which changes the way the shutter release operates, to make it easier to take longer-exposure pictures. They have 16-bit uncompressed RAW files now, which allows you to see the full Dynamic Range potential of the CCD sensor (Kodak made, I think). Higher ISO settings work much better then the M8.2. For more info the M8.2, take a look down on this blog for my Japan trip, which tells all about it. :-)
