Update: the 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux arrived today, and I’ll be publishing an assortment of sample images very soon. Thanks to Leica USA for supplying a loaner lens, because even though it’s in stock at B&H Photo, buying one is almost a 5-digit challenge!
I’ve published a large chunk of new content in my Leica M9 review (included in DAP). If you’re considering the M9, this is the unvarnished truth you’ll want to read, the real deal you’ll find nowhere else.
Please note that I will be making steady updates over the next week to the review, check back regularly for updates. I won’t be starting a revision list until the review is near-final.
There are lots of examples, and I document sensor problems, usability, focusing and composition issue and a lot more— all the stuff that I wanted to know for myself. I don’t waste time rehashing specs or nit-picking about noise or useless crap— it’s all about using the M9 as a camera, and where I succeeded or failed with it. Even if you own the M9 already, you should find much of interest.
The review is not yet done, there is more to come including more lens evaluations especially the 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux which should arrive shortly. As well as investigating the curious discoloration issue with the Zeiss ZM 21/4.5 Biogon.
