Lecia M9-P digital camera. Copyright © 2012, The Imaging Resource. All rights reserved.Shooting with the Leica M9-P and 50mm f/1.4 Summilux-M lens taught us a lot about why people love Leica cameras. But we also learned why most people don't shoot Leica rangefinders, and it isn't just about the very high price tag. Shooting with any manual focus, aperture-priority camera is a little more challenging than most people are used to. Once we got back into the swing of shooting with manual focus and exposure, shooting with the 18-megapixel M9-P was quite fun, and many of our images were stunning. Looking at our lab shots, we found a few nit-picky flaws, too, but not much that would keep us from recommending the Leica M9 wholeheartedly if photography is a hobby for you--and if you have the significant cash to afford one.
