Subject: [Leica] Easy decisions for M9 or not
From: richard.lists at (Richard Man)

The decision between (keeping) an M8 vs. an M9 is actually quite
simple. It comes down to

- Money factor: can you get an M9 even if you eat nothing but Ramen
noodles for a year?
- Comfort factor: are you comfortable "wearing" a $7K camera + $XK
lens on your neck?
- Heart factor: do you want an M9 or is it a "rational" decision?

- Head factor: if you are going to be rational about it, then
== Do you need 18 Megapixel?
== Do you need one stop better ISO?
== Do you shoot wide a lot?

See how easy it is?
