Then again, Leica just wants us to call it the “M”. I am just a guy that writes on a blog about his passion, and man have I always been passionate about Leica cameras.
Millions of people have read my “Big Bad Ass Leica M9 Review” and hundreds if not thousands have purchased the M9 due to me pouring out my love for such a machine over the past few years. The words I write on these pages seem to be heavily influential just as a movie reviewer influences the publics movie choices, which is why I always keep it real and am always honest and let my heart do the talking, even if I get grump-o’s attacking me for being overly enthusiastic.
That is just who I am and when I am excited about something…you guys will know it.
He also just received his M 240 and I look forward to seeing what he has to say.
If you go to the “About me” tab above you can see that most of the galleries there were shot with an M9 from Seal to Rural Landscapes to Street.
You will really not get that with a Leica M digital RF. I still feel the M9 sensor is a great sensor, mainly at base ISO. But it was no secret that Leica needed to move on to something bigger and better with more modern features otherwise they faced the possibility of DOOM like the not so old days before they launched the M9 and were headed for troubled roads.
But was that all Leica had going for it by the time 2012 hit? They indeed had some improvements and changes to make . Now there are debates and some feel there is no difference while others feel there is.2014 UPDATE: The ever growing Leica M 240 Sample Gallery is HERE Wow.I can not believe it is March 2013 and I am sitting here at my big white Ikea desk writing about the new digital Leica M! Yes, Leica decided to be with the M (M3-M9) successfully but with shorter numbers.I will always speak my mind and speak the truth about the cameras I write about. As for Thorsten, he is a GREAT guy and after meeting him in Berlin for the Monochrom event I sensed his Leica passion as well.He is the real deal and I have been reading his words since the Digilux 2 days.But that was in 2009-2010 and in 2011-2012 we started getting cameras coming in from other manufacturers such as the Fuji X100 and that camera was able to deliver gorgeous results at 1/10th the cost of a Leica setup.
