Leica M9 learning

My head is stuffed full of things I’ve learned about the Leica M9 in two days of intensive use, and those things will materialize soon in my review of the Leica M9 in DAP.

My review will be presented incrementally, so as to make important issues known as quickly as might be. I like the Leica M9 very much in some ways, and I also dislike it very much in some ways! Whether it “works” for you may well depend on your specific usage and style. Your best bet for following updates to my review will be my twitter feed, which can be book-marked in your browser.

The M9 is about $6995 . That’s a pity, since it’s beyond the range of many, but some money can be saved on lenses (discussed in my review). After using the M9 intensively for two days, I’m certain that my lens of choice would be the Zeiss ZM 35/2 Biogon at about $877 , which is not to say that the Leica 35/2 Summicron is not also a good choice, but it’s about $2795 ! And there are other factors, as covered in my review.

All is not well with every lens on the Leica M9, an issue I’m researching. As shown below, there is a discolored band on every photo taken with an otherwise stellar lens (Zeiss ZM 21/4.5 Biogon). Details will be in DAP once I have explored this issue.
