    Kristian, feeling more stealth-like now that you've been sporting the new version for a few days?

    With the chrome, who knows, but here in Hollywood, I'll be honest. its a good conversation starter when someone sees a Leica, and the chrome does grab more attention than a black would.

    As much as the camera is functional, I can't help but enjoy looking at my shiny M9-P. My first M camera was chrome, so it's always been my favourite.

    Interesting, since it's Hollywood, I'm guessing that getting noticed by your subjects might be more important there than many other locations? Or is that the case more for photographers that serve as paparazzi?

    Well seeing I don't work in Paparazzi circles I can't speak for them, although Paparazzi is no longer a long lens affair. They stalk and then intrude into the personal space of 2-3 feet sometimes of celebrities, and I see them often at my local part stalking them there. They really are scum!

    For me, being noticed by celebrities isn't a bad thing, especially cause they're mostly aware of the Leica camera these days. They're all jumping on the wagon

    I've seen the paparazzo in action... Let's just say I don't blame the subjects for decking them occasionally. They seem like they deserve it.

    As for the celebs getting on the bandwagon, that explains a fair bit, actually...

    When people ask me if I'm Paparazzi, I respond with "Do I look like an A-hole?"

    Good luck with it Jono. The M9P has to me seductive good looks and I hope the M10 when released will follow in that path.

    Re: First Shots with my nice silver M9p

    thank you Alan
    Kristian - it looks lovely - I wasn't aware that there was a chrome thumbs up,. . . but of course it would match the M8.
    I know it has it's advantages, but apart from a strap of some sort or another, I keep mine 'nude'.

    Interesting serial number jumping - mine's 420523x - quite a jump! It seems unlikely that they've made 524,000 of them in a couple of weeks!

    all the best

    Who knows, Leica might be getting that popular!


    Actually, a Leica representative mentioned somewhere that they've now sold the first batch of 1500 cameras and are making a second 1500 camera batch.

    Sounds familiar (but I can't remember where). At least, the serial numbers have jumped around for quite a few years now.

    I'm just happy to finally have an M9 of any flavor, but the chrome M9-P sure is pretty...seen here with her slightly older cousin.

    Found one on ebay for $1250 the day but considering I'll be trying the new version later this year, I felt i'd best let it go. It sold quickly. Besides my best friend just bought me a chrome 35mm Cron ASPH so I'm all happily chromed up right now. Best present ever!

    Really great looking porn here. I think most of the M8 and M8.2 users that are still around here, like myself, will upgrade to a nice looking M9P instead of the M9, of course mainly because it indeed seems to render much better like the pictures in this thread show!
    Q: did you already rub off some of the black paint in the lettering or did Leitz do that for you

    Did someone already mention to you that you need a Silver Nokton to make it look perfect? Yea, I know Kristian, you want to me! Anyhow, I think I heard the black version has less focus shift

    I saw that silver Nokton a day or so ago but Ron was very kind to sell me one of his previously (Thanks Ron!)

    Serious, that is one beautiful camera..wish I had one (the M9-P in silver) and with that 35mm chrome cron asph your friend purchased for you, is must really be sweet.

    As usual, looking forward to your images.

    Re: First Shots with my nice silver M9p

    Okay, I was going to hold my comments because I could't justify a switch to the M9-P, but...Oh my gosh that camera is incredibly sexy! That's not to say that my M9 is any slouch, but...oh my gosh that camera is incredibly sexy!

    Re: First Shots with my nice silver M9p

    Here's a little more camera porn. I was at Glazer's Camera talking to Mark and a guy walked in and said "who's your biggest Leica fan". Mark said it's him and pointed at me (Ashwin wasn't there! ). He gave us two Leica pins: the one shown below and a pre-M Leica pin that Mark took. Very cool.

    Then the "camera buyer" came up and set down two boxes that were just delivered. One had an invoice with my name on it. Totally unexpected, since they just got two M9-P's last week. I was very surprised and pleased. Here it is.

    ps: The Leica strap is the only one I don't immediately replace with an UpStrap. I like it













    Cheers, Matt

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!
    Not sure about the pin, but the camera looks great.
    Like you I'm rather keen on the Leica strap - the luigi one slipped on as it goes well with the chrome. I imagine it'll be back to the Leica strap before too long.

    Unlike you I really can't be doing with a half case - I had a nice rally one, but only used it once - horrid!

    all the best

    Re: First Shots with my nice silver M9p

    Going to a workshop this weekend; so, it will get broken in. I'm sure i can take better photos with it then I could with my older M9!

    The Leica strap's the right size, and, I've never had it slip off my shoulder.

    I'm curious: what was so "horrid" about the half case?

    Cheers, Matt

    HI Matt
    The only problem I ever had with a leica strap was once, years ago, with an M8, when I picked it up and one side came undone.

    As for the half case - I will list gripes:
    1. it makes the camera feel fat and horrid
    2. it tends makes marks on the top plate and around the lugs
    3. it's a real pain in the bottom changing batteries
    4. either a) it doesn't protect the LCD
    or b) it has a gross flap hanging off it.
    5. the camera looks better without it

    to summarise, it doesn't really protect the camera, it feels and looks nasty and it's a pain to use.

    otherwise they're fine

    The chrome looks a bit fatter compared to black ones but that's just illustration tho.

    They both look really sexy but i prefer chrome with chrome lens or black with black lens/chrome lens.

    Re: First Shots with my nice silver M9p

    Hmmm, I'm not sure. Maybe with a fairly large "black lens" like the VC 35mm f1.2, the black thumbs up is a good balance, but with smaller lenses, especially silver, I think I like the silver thumbs up on your M9-P. Then of course there is always black (thumbs -up) for the weekdays and the silver one for special weekends

    Let's not forget that the accessories should match... black belt..silver buckle, etc. And, for security purposes, a chrome Beretta with black grip
