    Waiting

    I guess the new Leica is aptly named "unobtanium" as I have ordered several places and nothing yet. Would love to use some of my lens on any digital camera, to play with. Any suggestions of those I might use until the precious arrives. I guess it will be like waiting for a baby?

    Well, if you want to start taking pictures now, then a second hand M9 would do you an excellent service. You might even conclude that you don't need the "unobtanium" new model after all and could use the money you've saved on an extra lens...That's what I've done and I don't really care now when my (ordered six months ago) M arrives; when it does, I'll probably let someone else have it.

    I picked mine up on 3 April - yay! I sent it in because of the strap lug issue - boo!
    So be thankful you are waiting as they get things right...

    Thanks and will wait. Tried a Nex7 and that works, but waiting and waiting.

    Re: Waiting

    I ordered my M 240 after the first batch shipped, paid for it up front and received notification that it was being shipped to me last week.
    That's a total wait time of 9 weeks, so I cannot complain

    Leica glass works extremely well on the Fuji XE-1 with the Fuji adapter.
    The EVF is better than the X-Pro 1 and aids manual focus a lot, making it very easy to get critical focus quickly (about as quick as using a range finder).

    I thought the new M was weather sealed? (8>)

    Many dealers will prioritise paid deposits over names down on a waiting list. I didn't wait that long back in the M9 days because I committed to my dealer and paid in full the day of announcement.

    Go buy yourself an M9 (or M-E) and start shooting TODAY.
