 Post subject: Leica M9-P?
PostPosted: Mon May 30, 2011 1:29 am 
Just taken from Leica Rumors Website says that there will be a slight facelift of a Leica M9 very few changes to it & very much like the Leica M8.2..

Quote:
In addition to chrome, the upcoming Leica M9-P will be available in black as well. You can see another close up of the chrome M9-P version on this twitpic from Seal (you can see part of the “M9-P’ engraving on the hot shoe). Here are the details.

* No Leica logo or M9 marking
* Classic Leica writing on top plate
* Chrome 0r black finish
* Vulcanite cover
* Sapphire LCD glass
* $700-$1000 more expensive than the M9


Here is the mock Up image from SEAL's Twicpic

Will certainly be interesting to see what Leica can improve on, the M9 being such a good camera already. Sapphire glass sure is interesting, but I wouldn't pay that much extra for it. I guess I'll still be buying the M9, unless of course an M10 is in the making and scheduled to arrive around December... :wink:

Hi Bjorn,

If the M8.2 and M9 announcements are any guide then if the M9-P is announced now the M10 would be another year away, possibly September '12. :(

Of course you could get a Sony NEX and start your Leica lens collection now but, having had a brief play with both a NEX-5 and an M9 earlier this year, I wouldn't go down that particular route myself unless somebody made me an offer I couldn't refuse. The ergonomics of the two bodies are chalk and cheese and you can guess which one I'd want to put to my lips... :lol:

Bob.
