The soon to be released M9

Leica is holding a worldwide launch on the 09/09/09 for their ‘next generation’ of products. The M9 will likely be the star of the show, and yesterday the latest official Leica M brochure was release. It feature the MP, the M7, and the M9 and there is no mention of the M8.2.

I was hoping that the LCD would go, but at least it's small!

The M9 will feature an 18.5 megapixel full frame (23.9×35.8mm) sensor which will capture true 16 bit DNG raw files (a first for small format digital cameras). It will be availble in a steel grey paint or a black paint finish. No word on pricing as yet, but we will know in a few days time.

I’ve just pulled the trigger on a chrome MP, and also found a mint condition Wetzlar made M6, so the M9 will have to wait.
