      Enjoy the new camera the m9 is a great piece of kit! As for tips...

      High ISO isn't great, I try not to go above 640. If you need faster shutter speeds then use the exposure compensation to under expose and bring it back in Lightroom.

      When fine tuning focus with a rangefinder rock your head back and forwards rather than fiddling with the lens.

      Carry a spare battery especially when it's cold. Though one battery lasts loads longer than my Fuji battery did.

      Get a soft release for the shutter button.

      Shoot loads and share your pictures!

      Thanks Rob. All good advice. I tend to rock back and forth now with the Sony to fine tune focus so that's something I'll carry across.

      I need to get another battery. Good to hear they last better than the Fuji's though as I have an X100T and the battery life in that is pretty woeful. Are there aftermarket ones available that aren't as crazy expensive as Leica's own that are any good?
