Summary: I never thought I'd give a Leica two stars, but that's all this camera is worth. First issue is size. Looking at the picture, it seems like you're getting something akin to an M film camera body. It's not. It's quite a bit thicker, although similar in length and width. But the thickness makes it lose that solid compact feel of an M4 (or 2 or 3). The black finish looks nice, but I didn't keep the camera long enough to see how it holds up.
