    M9 spy shot!

    Here's my guess as to what the M9 will look like...

    Surprise!

    It will look exactly like the M8.2 from the outside. Bigger FF sensor, FF viewfinder/brightlines, but no external changes front or back (except the M9 logo).

    A few months later, perhaps an anthracite color in addition to the silver chrome and black paint choices.

    What's your guess?

    nope. that japan site has some interesting ideas, but i'll bet the m9 is not like that at all. too many changes from today's camera.

    Actually I kind of like this even though this is not probably it.

    Re: M9 spy shot!

    I say black. The red calls too much attention and my bet electronic frame lines

    I think we need a poll on what people think will be on it.

    Riccis you should do this, be fun

    It's going to be a wee bit fatter.

    Can't say how I know ... I don't care that they'd have to kill you, it's them killing me I'm worried about.

    Apparently the M9 will be available in black paint and "Suchirugurepeinto" according to the Japan Leica site. Suchirugurepeinto translates to steel-gray. Here's another exclusive spy photo of this new color:

    That's not a spy shot, that's the M9 fading away because I didn't reach for my wallet fast enough

    No, some of us have been saying all along that the M9 is a "vaporcamera," so that's exactly what it looks like!

    It'll be interesting to see if the vapor actually condenses into a tangible object on 9-9-09, or if they simply announce it as a "future" product...

    Id be willing to bet it"ll sway more to Christophers version than Brads.

    Nope- there has been an internal tiff in the Leica companies -only red.
