Scott Williams Reviews the M9

As we've said before, we love these sorts of stories. Scott Williams, a Toronto-based Nikon DSLR shooter - finally realized his own dream of owning a Leica M9 and Summarit-M 35mm f/2.5 lens. So enamored was he, that he wrote a Leica M9 Review. He concludes with, "I really do think that my days as a DSLR shooter are very numbered."

There's just something about Leica's and rangefinders... I can't even explain it, I just love them. Maybe it's the history? Some of the worlds best photographers have used Leica's... Cartier-Bresson, Erwitt, Capa just to name a few. Maybe it's just the lack of automation and options when using a Leica. Either way, it's just fun to shoot with.

Leica T and Hasselblad Lunar - Compared!

We've seen some silly comparisons before but this one may take the cake. Of course, some have considered exactly this comparison in reaction to the new Leica T. But in its defense, it is what it is and does not try to simply dress up an existing camera as the Lunar does. Take it as you will... Gizmag's Leica T vs. Hasselblad Lunar comparison! To be fair, they do give it a nice review in the more serious Hands on: A week with the gorgeous Leica T.
