    The lighter side of M9-M!!

    I had a good laugh reading through various comments by respective authors
    on various fora as the announcements in Berlin happened. And afterwards.

    I would like to share some of it with you. Starts here, but I shall move it to the
    Sunset Bar.

    Please folks..this is just for fun All are original quotes!!

    Leica killed off film tonight, I am sorry to say.

    You certainly don't sound very sorry about it

    Why don't you post that on the film forum?

    Killed off film? Film is actually still available in color, too!

    The good news is indeed that the M9 lives on and has not been totally superseded. Oh, and it occurs to me...neither have film Leicas

    Gosh,we asked you not to drink before reporting.

    Thats bollocks.
    Sorry to be so blunt, but I can only assume you were rather tired and emotional.

    No- it was a quote from the presentation by Leica.

    I don't care who said it, it's still bollocks.

    Are their marketing people on drugs?
    Is there a transcript available somewhere to satisfy my incredulity?

    The nouveau riche gangster oligarchs that are Leica's target market nowadays are not interested in film.

    This cant be true...I think we've all been duped.
    I refuse to believe...

    where they come from? are they a fake or not?

    There is no way that 50mm price can be genuine, is there? Looks fishy to me

    Did you miss the best ever, Rayyan?

    Could you imagine if at the end of a MacWorld Keynote speech, Steve Jobs had said, “One more thing… But first a dinner break”

    LOL!!!
