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.

This camera is not for everybody

  • 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.

  • Summary: Review for people who are unfamiliar with the leicas, and wonder why its so expensive. Pros: - Small Full Frame camera that you can carry out almost every where, great for travel - Batteries last for long due to the mostly manual functionality of the camera - very limited menu that covers only the necessary features which makes you concentrate more on photography - un-noticable in your hands by subjects, undesirable by thieves - Quite shutter - timeless design - count...

$7K and No Engravings!

  • Summary: Remember the Leica M8? I wrote an honest review of the M8 on Amazon and got flamed by Leica enthusiasts. My main concern with the M8 was the smaller than full frame sensor (18 mm x 27 mm) and its extreme IR sensitivity. I fully expect to get flamed for this review. I was not able to rent an M9 in my home city, Milwaukee. 6 months on a waiting list and an AmTrack ride I did get my rental from a well known photo shop in Chicago (with insurance!). So here goes.

  • Excerpt: I love this baby. The genuine article, save for: - ON/OFF switch terribly sensitive, I hate how it flicks to self-timer easily. - Buffer overload is one thing but even worse is trying to chimp (review pix) while buffering, or push PLAY before the camera booted up: it may fry the card, makes it unreadable!

  • Excerpt: It makes me think more about the pictures I take which is great. It's also smaller and lighter than the DSLRs that I used to carry about. Oh, and the picture quality's great so far. Having said all that, it clearly can't do everything and I sometimes struggle to focus quickly (but then my DSLR would sometimes not (auto) focus quickly either, depending on subject and lens in use). Auto ISO works very well for interior pictures, I don't use it out of doors in good light.

  • Excerpt: Having used the film M's since the mid 80s I was dying to get one of these, I had to trade in extensively to own one. Leica equipment has never been cheap, so the price is hard to understand, but when you see the quality not so hard to appreciate. When you get past the cost, the camera is unique and has no equals. A full frame M is an amazing concept, it's a clever design.

Leica M9 camera

Jeff, Amazon

  • Summary: A beautifullly crafted camera. the first few shots taken with the camera was disappointing as I have yet to get use to the focussing with a rangefinder camera. anyway after a few days of practice the results are fantastic. I still got a long way to go till I get the best of the Leica camera.
