    Somebody take their iPhone and live-blog it for us, okay? Even if all the juicy bits have been leaked by then, I'd still like to see how the actual event goes over...

    Ok, kids... In NYC right now for Saturday's wedding, fly out to Italy on Sunday for next weekend's wedding and back to NYC on the 7th... Depending on how I feel when I get back and if I can get someone to send me an invite I'll try to stay for the announcement on the 9th...

    Cheers,

    What about down South? Those of us at the bottom of the peninsula are always left out!

    Here's my bit of rain on the parade: These events don't necessarily imply any kind of central coordination from the Leica Worldwide Command Center.

    Having noted the speculative frenzy on photo-fora about the whole "9/9/09 at 9" bit, any savvy store marketer would be smart to schedule some kind of event at that time, just to build store traffic... even if they don't have anything to announce/show other than, say, S2 news.

    OK, and the taking of pre-orders (with a deposit) gets them what? $3 USD of interest earned for the period?

    Granted, that still doesn't mean something coordinated is happening directed by the LHC (Leica High Command, not Large Hadron Collider) but these guys aren't Ferengi enough to pull this kind of actionable stunt.

    There is a press announcement at 9am in NYC at the Time Warner bld. Appears to require an invitation which I am attempting to obtain.

    At 1pm there is a presentation by Justin Staley on Leica s new announcements at B&H s Super Store in NYC. This one is open to the public and you can register for it at B&H website under I believe ...events.

    If you live in FL, you don't have to go all the way to NYC. We'll be hosting a 9-9-9 Leica event in our store.

    Hope to see some of you here.

    Thanks for the info! Doesn't look like I will be able to make the road trip as the week is already booked solid...

    thanks again.

    I too was invited (by mail) to the event in Monterey, CA at Camera West / 12pm Noon.

    Anyone headed up to that one?

    Reid wil post reviews on 9/9 and 9/10

    I've pasted some text from Reidreviews below - I assume that he's had samples for long enough to have prepared reviews. We'll probably learn more about the new cameras from Reid than from attending the event at B&H. A major question that I have, for example, is how do various lenses stack up in terms of corner resolution and vignetting in the 24x36 format? I'll probably stay home and read the reviews.

    The quote from Reid:

    "An article about a very interesting new camera will appear here on September 9 followed by an extensive review of an exciting new camera on September 10 and a "First Impressions" review of yet another new camera also on September 10. Check back then for some interesting reading."

    There is a lot of space between "very interesting" and "exciting" - I wonder which one is which.
