Leica M9-P

 

The Leica M9-P is a camera from another time, wrapped up in a digital package. This absurdly priced rangefinder won't appeal to most buyers, but the small percentage of takers can expect top-notch design, superb images, and good low-light performance.

Superb image quality. Good high ISO performance. Full frame image sensor. Bright optical viewfinder. Compact form factor. Includes Adobe Lightroom software.

I'm on the fence. In terms of usability for street photography, it takes much practice with a camera like an M9-P and its manual focus lenses to make the process subtle, seamless and fast. On the first day of testing, I accidentally bumped the shutter...
