I start confusing about what lens you guys have right now. Canon, Zeiss, Nikkor...
Michael, I haven't had as much fun with a new camera for a long since getting a M240. My RX1 gets almost no use, my Ricoh GR sits unused and if its not for how the Monochrom renders older lenses and perform at ISO10,000 it would be hard to put down my M240. Live view really opens up new avenues for all types of lenses without needing another camera (compromised APS-C or heavy DSLR). The other option is to wait for a Sony or other FF Mirrorless solution but even then, we don't know if they will have the right micro-lenses for wide RF lenses? I bought a NEX7 when launched and was really disappointed with how my M lenses were soulless on the crop sensor Also as many have experienced themselves, corners can be really poor even with 28 or 35mm lenses. So somehow I think the holy grail FF mirrorless solution many are hoping for is still a few generations away? While some are not happy with the M240 for whatever reasons (AutoWB , colors, high ISO not as good as Sony, no off center zoom for LV (I was also skeptical but found that its not as bad as I though it was), etc etc. I am enjoying my M240 today. That being said, the M9 is still a very relevant camera and if I didn't have the M240, I would still be happy shooting with a M9.
Also with no disrespect to others here, its all about risk and rewards, the earlier you pre-order a Leica M, the earlier you get one. If you ordered yesterday or wanted to wait until you see more samples online, don't expect one delivered tomorrow unless you are very lucky, have a great relationship with your dealer or pay extra for it. I mentioned in the past, I ordered my M(240) before the camera was launched and there was already a wait list. This is after all, Leica.
