Great news today as the first full format digital M Leica was finally anounced. This camera has a 24 x 36mm sensor that will replace the brave M8. I had a chance to try one this afternoon and something tells me that pictures on this blog will soon be taken by this camera ;) I am not a pro so I will let others review it such as www.stevehuffsphoto.com or www.reidreviews.com but my first impressions is that this is the digital M camera that so many have been waiting for. So here is my first test picture taken with the 35mm Summilux Asph. Click on picture to see the full size picture (slightly compressed). Note that you can also look at this picture unprocessed by clicking here.
As for the story of this picture, simple, this woman had her breath taken away as she saw the new Leica M9 in the window of PhotoSuffren.
