According to the German manufacturer, the Leica M9 is "the world's smallest full-frame system camera," with its 24 x 36mm, 18-megapixel sensor. Kodak has developed the CCD sensor features, which include improved offset microlenses for optimizing performance along the frame's edges and a a sensor cover for improved filtering of infrared light. The camera features an ISO range of 160 to 2,500, 2.5-inch LCD screen and is still compatible with Leica M8 and M8.2 accessories. It starts shipping in the United Kingdom today for a price tag of £4,850 (~$8,004).
I do love those retro-looking cameras, but they're not exactly affordable. Would you be interested in buying either of these new cameras?
