    I wanted to say your photography inspires me and also relate that I am in a similar boat deciding between D800 and M9. I’ve been recommended the Otus since I complain about other lenses not being sharp. But the thing weitghs a lot and I dislike manual focusing on a modern DSLR. I prefer micro prism focusing and range finders for manual focusing. I’ve read your posts about using your leica more and more. Have you missed your D800?

    • Thanks Erick. Do I miss the D800? Well I still have it for freelancing for DSLR wedding teams but otherwise it may as well be sold. I’m not going to pretend the M9 is gods gift to cameras. Yes I like the high ISO and 36mp of the D800 but not enough to ever use it over the M9. The only thing I like more than the M9 is film but that is not practical for everyday shooting for clients. Cheers Matt

    Just stumbled upon your website Matt, I have had 2 M9’s in the past and stupidly let them go. I am now about to pull the trigger on a used M9 to go with my 25mm Zeiss Biogon. This for me produced some of my best work and that is after using my 5D mk2 which I have now sold. Yes Leica are not perfect but the joy of using rangefinders over bulky heavy DSLR’s wins for me.

    I had 2 M9’s which i begrudgingly sold. I am now about to purchase a used M9 to go with my 35mm cron and excellent 25mm Zeiss biogon. Really miss the rangefinder experience and in a photographers hands the files it produces are just stunning. I do not miss my 5D mk2 at all.

    • Thanks Matt, yes I struggle to get excited by non-rangefinders now. Yesterday I did a Leica wedding with 2 M9 bodies. A first with 2 M9s and I really enjoyed the experience of 2 identical M bodies. Follow up post with thoughts to follow. Cheers Matt
