Come to the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco in September and you can try it without anyone blinking an eye ;) I love SF for all the "sub-cultures" that all have their street fairs, events etc. Never a dull moment......

So I hear.
I am doing a lot of reading about the Leica system, I want a smaller lighter camera with good image quality, I love my X100, but there are many things about it that irritate me.
The Leica M system seems to fix all of them, and be a camera that will push me to be a better photographer, whilst being compact, fairly light (compared to a 1Dmk4 I carry at work) easier to focus accurately in low light and having an array of wonderful lenses, and superb image quality.
Oh, and my #1 thing, a proper optical viewfinder

I also have a thing for beautifully made stuff that feels nice to use.

Proceed directly to an M9/M-E with Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH.

OK, I'm throwing it out there. The Apple does Leica charity M (external link).

Apologies for the contradiction, but I'm indifferent and yet oddly curious about the design in terms of aesthetics...as for function, who knows...I suspect it's not meant for use. I would say that I like the 'normal' Leica M (digital or film) much better; for that matter, I even like the Hermes M9 special edition (external link)better.

To note, lots of news stories are remarking about how a regular M (240) costs around US$7,000. What they are not mentioning is that the lens used for the (RED) M is an APO 50mm Summicron ASPH, of which the normal production variant goes for US$7,350.

Nah, I'm going to go for the M240 with a Non ASPH 50 Summicron and shoot that for a year or so, then add a few other lenses to the mix.

I started looking at the M8, just to try a rangefinder out, then looked at the issues and age, and realized for a bit more, I get an M9, then went through the same thought process and decided to just get the shiny new one (M240), and use the hell out of it.

Money is going to a good cause to. Should fetch big $$$$ if it goes to a collector.
