    M9 right camera for me ?

    I mostly shoot landscape and architecture, nearly never wide open , f/11 to f/16
    I don't need a very wide angle, a 35 mm will be ok

    do you think a M9 is the right camera for me ?
    and which (best) 35 mm ?

    For landscapes it is a great tool. For serious architecture it falls short without lens movements. So the answer is twofold - yes and no. The technical quality of the files when used to its maximum with calibrated lenses, tripod, selftimer is very very good. The limitation in my opinion is the lack of lens movements, otherwise it is simply superb.

    Erick, Lots of folks, including myself, like a RF because of its size and weight and capacity for use for street photography. For these reasons, the Leica is my choice. But, if I were predominately shooting landscapes and architecture, I would also ponder a DSLR, which has some significant strengths (including long exposures and such) for such photography.
