Do post some examples and tell us how easy or not  easy it is to use.  I 
interested in knowing how, as a practical  matter, your photography changes 
as a result of the reduced field of view due to  the sensor size.
hmmm.  I am an M  shooter, and my 35mm summicron is "welded" on one camera.  
When I got my  Leica *ist Ds, I used the zoom for some time, and recently 
bought a 28mm f2.8  prime.

Since the lens point of view is close to the 35, and I can run  iso's at 
about twice what I would at film for the same noise, I am finding that  I 
pretty much the same.  

The tactile feel of the M5 or M6 are  quite nicer than the ist, but now it 
mostly depends on whether I think I need  the stuff sooner.

Gotta admit, I am interested in the DMR, but with one  kid in college . . .  
another headed there, I will probably just wait, and  buy mine used, like I 
mostly have the other Leica stuff.
