rirakuma, would you mind to answer why you lust from time to time after a M9?
Weather sealing is defiantly a feature I would like to have as well, but for now, knocking on wood, I had no problems at all. It was last summer when I bought the M9-P and since then I made many hikes with overnighting outside, some of them are also very wet. The body and lenses got wet sometimes and worked flawless. Of course it is not a long time span....hopefully it continues that way. But still as mentioned above, weather sealing is a excellent thing to have, no question!
For what I photograph I am still a big fan of the M9 generation and I just love for sentimental reasons the feel, handling and the classic look of that generation....the last of it's kind. As a 100% hobbyist I can afford to think this way. Despite all my enthusiasm about my M9-P I am a bit anxious about the first winter (battery), not so much for one day or one night outside, more likely my planed Lapland vacation where I will be 10-12 days in a rope outside. Well, I do bring 6 batteries with me, luckily I have a MP and 25 Velvia 50 films as backup.
Thanks for the comments and likes!
