Doesn't everyone shoot in manual mode?  Hardly ever use Auto exposure using 
R or M cameras.  As for M8 versus M9, I would love to have a M9, but SWMBO 
does not see it the same way.  ;-)  I am hoping I can get her to try one at 
the Leica Seminar, and then use that to convince her I MUST HAVE one.  ;-)

Don't tell me you actually use that shutter dial :-) (although I admit that
it's much easier to do exp compensation just by going manual)
