Only if you kept it and didn't give it back.

That doesn't seem fair. Dating counts.

:D

But seriously, folks...

I had just a few minutes to run into the store to pick up the latest copy of M magazine, while my wife waited in the car. Of course, one of the salespeople chose THAT moment to ask if I'd seen the new M10. :o Before I could say "Sorry, I have to run..." he unlocked the glass display, grabbed the camera and handed it to me. Imagine trying to pack hours of visual and tactile joy into a few seconds. :shock: :?

Buy it. Run out to the car and hand it to your wife and say "Happy Valentine's Day sweetie"

It should work.

I strolled over to the Leica Store-SoHo where they had one on display the day of the announcement. Has a "density" in hand reminiscent of the M6 and quite a bright and lovely rangefinder. Seemed easier to get things in focus faster than even a 240.
If you're coming from an M9 (like me), the argument for a trade up is a no-brainer.
From an M262?...not so much.
