    Great news Robert. I'm hoping that we'll start to see more M9 inventory moving through the US pretty quickly.

    Oh, curses and bad words. I have to be at a History seminar in Abilene this weekend trying to flog a book proposal.....

    Robert,

    Any chance you guys are opening Sunday afternoon for this special event? (My son and I are cutting through Austin on the way to Burnet on Sunday but not Saturday, darn it.)

    Can you answer a few questions for me? I was in the store last week and was told you have not gotten any to sell yet.
    1. When do you anticipate having any M9s to sell?
    2. What does one have to do to get on the list for an M9? What is the deposit?
    2. What is the price for the M9 w tax?

    You are welcome to PM the answers to me.

    We are open on Sunday but the Leica demo is Friday and Saturday only. I'll send you a PM on the other questions.

    Nice and sharp lens but .... some flare??
    There where spots in the ceiling just above the guy's shoulder.
    Exposere was ok for the guy and illuminated background was a bit over.
    My M9 was still is manual lens mode for the 50mm Summilux Asph.

    Results like this sometimes happen when the contrast between the subject and a dramatically overexposed background is high. Some kind of spillover in the sensor. I see it sometimes with my M8 too, but only under the worst conditions. With the M8 it looks even worse.

    This is the effect when you overexpose for more than 12 stops.

    found on Thorsten Overgaard's Leica blog.
