Six months ago I finally bought a Leica M9 after a long process of weighing the pros and cons.

During this time I've read a lot of reviews and made a large collection to Leica M9 and lens reviews (Leica, Zeiss, Voigtlaender).

http://sites.google.com/site/wosimsphotography/links-testberichte-reviews

I think, this collection might be helpful for decision making.

After many years with Canon F1, Rolleiflex SL66 and Leica M6 I am very, very  happy with the M9.

Best regards

Thanks very much. What lenses have you ended up with ?

For my analogue M6 TTL and my Minolta CLE I had the Voigtländer Super-wide Heliar 4.5 15mm, Voigtländer Ultron 1.9 28mm, Voigtländer Nokton 1.4 40mm, Summicron-M 2.0 90mm pre-Asph. and Tele-Elmar 4.0 135mm. With the M9 I noticed a decentration with the Heliar, the other lenses were perfect, but I wanted the most versatile and lightest set of lenses for mountain-hiking, trekking and traveling. I was glad to find the wonderful Tri-Elmar 28-35-50mm (only flare restistance could be better), bought the stunning Tri-Elmar 16-18-21mm and as a light alternative to the 90mm Summicron the Tele-Elmarit-M 2.8 90mm, which is excellent. For now I am really happy with this set: When travelling I take the two Tri-Elmar lenses and the Tele-Elmarit-M 90mm. I leave the Nokton and the Tele-Elmar in the hotel, if I think that I don't need them. All of this equipment fits perfectly into a Think-Tank Retrospective 5 shoulderbag or into a Tamrac Evolution 6 backpack (with tripod).

My route was very similar, subtract the M6, and add Rollei GX, Bronica RF 645 (with Tech Pan) and the Canon 5D2, among others.  I too am very happy with my M9.

My favorite optic is the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 Biogon.  I recently compared it to a Sony RX1, both a f/2.8.  Check the edges at 100% at http://www.paulroark.com/RX1-v-ZM-at.28.jpg.

(I posted some comments at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/DigitalBlackandWhiteThePrint/message/105933 )

I rely a lot on MTF graphs.  With these, I find the Leica results the most reliable, but the Zeiss curves are also useful.  A collection of these MTFs are at http://www.paulroark.com/BW-Info/Leica-Zeiss-MTF.jpg .  These are all from Leica or Zeiss.
