  1. And peter is back. This more like it. Amazing buddy. I wonder if the same shot was taken with the
    M240 would it have given the same effect, probably would but in different aspect I guess

    1. Thanks Salim. I honestly don’t know the answer to your question, but I am much happier now that I have an M9 back (actually an M9P, which I’ve never had the pleasure of owning).

        1. Of course, that’s why I’ve avoided it in the past – the cosmetic differences weren’t important to me. However, this one was in mint condition with only 304 shutter actuations — and those details are important to me.

  2. Congratulations Peter on your M9-P; and to your daughter’s ninth birthday. I am truely happy to see you back again!
    Cheers,
    Michael.

    1. Yes, I remember what you wrote, and you were correct.

      I’ve always tried to change things up each year – if I hadn’t done that in 2007/2008, I’d still be shooting with a Nikon DSLR. This is the first time that I just haven’t been able to find something better (and I’ve tried 3 times this year).

  3. Nice Peter. A nice way to start back with an M9(P) in hand. Certainly no surprises here!!!

    The “delight” is priceless as per Teresa’s comment.

  4. Congratulations Peter. Happy for you knowing firsthand what a great tool the M9/P/ME is. Now the itch might return only if there’s another CCD sensor in Leica’s future. That would be a real coup. If not, then the M9 is inevitably immortalized!

  5. Hi. I am new to you, but just wanted to say I felt sad on your behalf for a little while there, when your dissapointment with the m240 shone through. Glad to see you’re up and about and back with the sensor you love and the wonderful things you show us with the combination of you two. Looking forward to life’s next moment captured by you.

    1. That’s very kind of you Eline, thank you… and welcome to the site!

      A few kind people have written to me, expressing similar sentiments, and I’m very grateful. I’ve also made it a point of stating that, in the grand scheme of things, I understand that my frustration with the M240 amounts to very little.

  6. When you sold all your equipment and then you purchased the M240, I was little worried what is going on with you, Peter. Today, I saw this photo and immediately felt your are back. I think that this is you, capturing life’s little moments, sharing them on your blog and I want to thank you for doing that. I guess the camera/lens can make a difference at the end ;). Take care, Peter.
