I guess the MM will still be better, which could explain the price difference.

It would be hard to justify to pay 1000 bucks more if you can get better B&W results with the new M in 3 months from now.

I think the new M is going to be a killer color camera with very good low light capabilities. I really like a camera that is only B&W for my personal work. I have shot one commercial assignment with it and I can see a couple of annual reports coming this next year where i will be able to use it. I am anxous to see what hte new M-E will look like once Leica gets the new CMOS technology cranking in the new M. I'm guessing we will probably see one in the next couple years.

I have a sneaking feeling the MM with the CCD sensor with a non Bayer filter will be a classic. I am just hoping that this happens sometime after the M comes out, I have no intention of trading my M9-P for a new M but adding a MM is very appealing as at least 90% of my shots are B&W.

I have the same feeling, however, in the digital world, it is very hard to become a classic ! Mostly, you are just old technology, just like my first Sinclair computer I bought in 1980.

The sad part is everything is made now with a usable shelf life. I mean the gadget train is a must now because the companies stop supporting things after so long. For me 18MPs is plenty big.

True.

I heard recently in a Leica store that if you have a problem with your M8 sensor / electronics, it cannot be fixed anymore.

They will give you an upgrade proposal, because they can't get it fixed anymore.

I beg to differ, the Sinclair is indeed a classic.   Smiley  The difference in the digital age is that the classics are no longer really functional as tools.

That stinks..... Sad

I guess when the technology moves on so does the ability to make the older stuff. Sad because I had my 500 C/Ms for a couple decades. No reason to upgrade.

From all what I have seen , it seems to be a great camera for portraits and for urban shooting.

Not sure, it is superior in landscape.

Any thoughts?

Donno but the sharpness, low noise and DM should make it better than most digital 135 format options.

Somebody posted some thing here that look pretty impressive.

3 Clauses
Merry Christmas


Try Murphys in Louisville & Lexington Ky ask for Kevin Murphy. They did have a few MMs.
