Excerpt: Life is short, I used SLRs/DSLRs for 40 years but I never had a Leica. I had pretty much any Nikon DSLR both in FX & DX format. I do have the 4: 3 format and the Nikon 1 and I like them all but my recent move to Leica should have been done earlier.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: A little about me: I am a professional photographer working in fashion, beauty, product and portraiture. I use an Hasselblad for my work. I have been always fascinated by Leica's look and finally decided to buy one.
Pros: Great Design, Great Resolution, Leica's Film-look Alike, Viefinder
Excerpt: I use this for studio and landscape most. Quality! Quality! Quality! I waited it so long even after I was in the waiting list of BH. For leica, we never ignore its price. But it is worth. Every penny of it.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD

Summary: Upgraded from the M9-P, took it to Cuba. I used a minimum of ISO 640 and often higher due to the dark streets, etc. Results were oustanding: low noise (easily controllable in Lightroom) even up to ISO 1600. Sharpness, great with the Leica lenses. Worked flawlessly.
Excerpt: I loved my four Leica primes and that's where Leica really shines! The M that I owned was a bit of a disappointment in terms of keepers. I mastered the focus but the slightest movement handheld often killed the shot.
Excerpt: Perfect for travel, although it is heavier and thicker than the M9. The image quality is extremely high, even at the higher ISO's. The noise is acceptable at 3200 which is great when shooting after dark on the street.
Pros: Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution
