Summary: The Leica M isn't like other cameras in that it's really a constant reminder to think before taking the shot. The optics, even older Leica lenses, are optically brilliant, and the ergonomics feel like what you expect to feel when you make images. I love my Leica M 240.

Summary: You either get a Leica or you get a Leica ... there is just no comparison. Leica's rich photographic history, gorgeous, clean construction, German engineering, compact body, beautifully illuminated Rangefinder patch, no DSLR-like Shutter lag, being able to come close to the subject and being part of...

It is so much better than my M9… besides the singular fact that the images are better… more micro-contrast in the shaded areas, crisper detail, more evenly balanced tonal range… the most important improvement is that some of the more...
