    Congrats Moonshine! I got a Thumbs Up about a week ago. It made a big difference for me. Combined with my Zhou case's bean shaped front grip, it makes the M9 easier to hold.

    Congrats! I admit I was skeptical at first but once I started shooting with with it... You'll really start to appreciate it with longer/heavier lenses, when the camera's hanging at arms length with your finger on the trigger (ala street) or just for a more stable grip in lower light. I've got one on both the M8 and M9.

    I got the THUMBS Up CSEP mod 1 shortly after getting the M9. With my Film Leicas having the film advance and my thumb hooked under it had always made it feel more secure so it seemed a natural addition. Plus the model I bought had a accessory shoe so adding an external finder was an option.

    It was on my camera all the time with the only negatives being when the camera was on my side (strap across the chest usually is how I have the camera on) the thump up dug a bit into my ribs, and the high profile of the accessory shoe wasn't so slick looking.

    Lately I haven't had it on. Its kind of gone the way of soft releases and camera cases. They do their job, but I can get along without them.
