Beware of dust when changing lens

Kenneth Wang "WangMan", Amazon
9 July 2013
  • Summary: Since I have owned Leica M cameras for the last 40 years (M4 & M6), it was a no brainer for me to get the M9P, since all my Leica M lenses work with this body. I really like the digital pictures the Kodak CCD sensor can produce, and along with the Lightroom software, I can play with the RAW output to suit my pleasure.

Beautiful Camera

Ross, Amazon
2 July 2013
  • Summary: This camera is simply stunning. I have shot with it before and it's one of the finest camera's you can use. It's quite expensive, but worth every penny, especially when you get the perfect shot.

This camera is not for everybody

Mark Twain "wwwumax", Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: Finally got this camera and corresponding lens. Because it is a M series camera body, no auto-focus lens exist. That knocks off one star from my review. I have to admit the photo has quite different in color saturation and sharpness compares to much cheaper DSLR such as a Canon L lens. However it totally depends on how people like to use this camera: Not everyone has the patience to do manual focus.

It was worth the wait

kkrome25 "kkrome25", Amazon
25 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought the M8 several years ago, and it met my expectations as far as image quality. I just could not work with the crop factor. The M9 with its full-frame sensor was worth the wait. It's very critical that I know my 50mm lens will cover just what a fifty will, and so on with other focal lengths. Rangefinder photographers rely on memory as to the coverage of a particular lens, and the sensor must be 24x36mm, just like 35mm film.

  • Excerpt: No es una cámara para cualquiera, solo para quienes entiendan el funcionamiento de un rangefinder. No es comparable desde ningún punto de vista con una réflex. Da gusto tomar fotos con la M9 y los resultados son excelentes. Problems: LCD de baja resolución y baja calidad de la imagen utilizada para preview.

My M9 Experience. (Coming from a DSLR background)

James Maier "carbon111", Amazon
26 October 2012
  • Summary: Okay, I admit it, I was driven to check out the Leica digital rangefinder cameras because of the great time I've been having and the excellent photos I've been taking with the little Leica X2 point-and-shoot! For a short while I had an M8 but quickly sold it to help fund the M9. I guess the rangefinder paradigm is not for everybody but I fell in love with shooting 35mm film on my dad's old Contax many years ago when I was in my twenties!

Caveat Emptor

J. Sheldon Cooper "Conspicuous Consumer", Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: Clarification: i purchased an M9-P not an M9. I can't really review this camera as I never owned one, but I do own several Leica M film cameras, and a lot of expensive Leica glass. I bought a Leica M9-P and kept it for a day, and didn't like it all. I but I fail to understand how this older camera can be far superior to the more recently released, but similarly priced M9-P.
