    Re: Yes, YES, YESZ!!!

    Merci, guys. Now I need to redo my recent trip to Paris with the M9.

    I have no more kidneys left so what's next? I propose a new subsection of this Forum: "Body parts for sale"

    Lens, yes, which new lens?? Hmmmmm. No, first enjoy the ones I've got. They are all new again thanks to the M9! Hey, that's a great marketing one liner for Leica: "Renew all your lenses for free when you buy a Leica M9"

    "Body parts for sale"

    Not a bad idea. LOL
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I'd give my left_________ for a call from Camera West saying they are sending mine out.

    I don't need _______ anymore anyway

    Congrats...

    Saw the steel grey at Photoplus Expo in NYC and it definitely looked better in person. If they were more readily available I would have considered it.

    Re: Yes, YES, YESZ!!!

    I got mine from Ffordes. Thanks again for the tip Jaap. I send them an email at the end of September and asked them what their expected delivery time would be. I thought I was very late and would have to wait till next year. Somehow Steve Byford is able to get cameras in fast.

    The price is about the same if I order in the Netherlands (which I also tried but for example Nivo Schweitzer, where I previous bought my Leica gear, were very slow to respond to my emails).

    I haven't had much time yet to take photos. This weekend I hope to be able to post some results.

    Don't forget to claim your passport warrantee, Maarten. One of the advantages of buying in the UK.
