    Happy M-9 Birthday to Me

    Two weeks short of my XXth birthday (not Roman numerals), after a few months on several waiting lists, I got notice today of the impending arrival of my bi-color M9. Fit to be tied? You betcha!

    Waited around the house all day for UPS to arrive - at 4:37 the doorbell rang and what did Brown do for me? Brought me my little M9. I had some reservations about the grey, but it is has a cool vibe to it. I think I will like it just fine. Now I have to get used to having this tiny camera (compared to the D3x with a 24 PC-E mounted) in my big mitts.
    I hope to post something worthwhile after the weekend.

    Wonderful news! Simply put a 35mm or 50mm lens on the camera and spend an afternoon walking around someplace interesting with the camera. Shoot everything you see that engages you and drink in the experience of using the M9. The more you use it, the more it will feel like an extension of your curiosity.

    Happy shooting.

    Enjoy! Congratulations!
    Don't have any grey remorse . . I'm lucky enough to have one of each, and I think the grey is splendid.

    Did I say 'enjoy'!

    all the best

    Just this guy you know

    If you decide you would prefer black, I would trade for my black M9. If so, PM me.
