  1. Lucky, lucky, lucky ….you :) I’m happy for you, being able to loan a M9 for testing, you’re definitely one of the bloggers and street photographers that I think really deserves the honor of being on Leica’s “loan list”.

    Hopefull you’ll do more videos about the M9 but please try to improve the audio a little bit :)

  2. I’m consumed with jealousy. Consumed! Paris with an M9; does it get any better? The pressure is on Eric – looking forward to those pictures.

  3. You deserve this magical period Eric, you have worked hard to build this site and share with us.

    Looking forward to your future posts.

      I actually see panasonic have announced they will be splitting the GF series in to entry level and advanced level, maybe some promise there for a great camera with interchangeable lens, fast focus, and more manual controls :)

  4. Lucky you indeed. I just need tips to get Leica to send me one for testing :)).
    Congrats. And what is this leica event in Paris just in case I’ve got time to check it out?
    Thanks, Cheers and Happy shooting.

  5. Welcome to taking a bite out of the apple!
    Be interested to see how things will work out for you with the combo.
    I’m not going to say much…. Just want to see if you get the same feeling I did that has changed me forever.

  6. what a cruddy unboxing.
    I saw nothing but the box for more than 3/4th of this entire video.
    And the shaking hand that held the camera? Give me Aleve.
