I have edited the thread title to include all pictures taken with Leica digital cameras.
That is....M8, M9, M9-P, MM, M240, X1, X2, and any newer models...

Here are few with recently acquired...

It's great to hand-hold at 1/8 sec ....

Pretty noisy/grainy, except for the first one.

Nice clarity and sharpness, but you have some dustbunnies.

Thrice, your pics are out of the ordinary. If you say these are taken with the M9/M8 I start thinking of it as something different to all other photographs and it is worth to follow my dream (dream not because in terms of investment) to have this cam. All others posted pics before is not worth even to think about having one of these cams.
It's always the same song. Somebody buys something expensive new gear/lenses and immediately start posting something one can do with any cam/lens instead of waiting/learning what to do/post different with the stuff. I'm so tired of that.

I can understand where you're coming from, but your statement is uncalled for ...
I hope you understand where I'm coming from....

Best beach/ocean shot I've seen from you yet. Love this one.
Wonderful how the sky and sea are counterparts here.

Thanks Philippe!

I must thank Thrice (Daniel) and Makten (Martin), for their advice on lens choice on the M series cameras.

Thanks everyone It took a bit of frustration to get to know the camera (less forgiving than the 5D Mk II) but with a bit of practice it sings, and my back appreciates the weight saving.

From where I'm sitting the M9 doesn't really do anything special, image quality wise, that isn't surpassed by other 35mm FF cameras (DSLR), or equalled by 1.6 crop and m4/3rds.

It's clear that the photographer is by far the most important part of the equation.

That said, I still lust after the M9-- just not because of anything in the image quality.

... it's because of the equation of size, weight, operation, and "good enough image quality."

And I want want badly for that reason.
