Three years after the introduction of its first digital rangefinder, the M8, Leica has introduced this week the latest follow-up in the M-serie, the M9.

Although for many of us amateur photographers way out of our budget, it once again is a beauty and a true pleasure reading about it.

The Leica M9, with its 24 x 36mm, 18 megapixel sensor is, according to the company: ‘the world’s smallest full-frame system camera.’ The body is available in a new ‘Steel Gray’ finish and offers minor button re-arrangement over the M8 – all the major changes relate to the internals.
