I think I am the luckiest photographer in the history of earth! Note - I also got a brand new 50mm summilux asph with the M10. A short wait for the rest of you. :)

Thank goodness Leica went with an optical viewfinder instead of an EVF. It looks to be a 1.00 viewfinder, which is radical; great for 50mm and above but wide angle lenses will need an external viewfinder although Leica doesn't appear to have included a hotshoe.

(Happy birthday!)

Have you given a thought to the possibility that you might be the luckiest dad in history? :)

Although I think luck doesn't have that much to do with it and you probably deserve all the attention your kids are giving you :D

I think you have a "knock off" On the real ones the logo is camouflaged for vanity's sake.

I'm thrilled with the new on/off switch http://cdn.l-camera-...ilies/smile.gif
Still no extra 'old fashioned' flash contact http://cdn.l-camera-...smilies/mad.gif

Glad to see they resisted the calls for a clip-on EVF and weatherproofing... actually it looks like they are introducing pay-per view instead!

paper view...

It's a pun...





I'll get me coat. :D

Congratulations!

Regards,

Nice to see that Leica appear to have addressed their recent poor quality control issues with this new model!

You know, you could tape up (from the inside of course) all of the light leaks and put a piece of cardboard at the base of the lens with a pin hole in it, get a piece of film and tape it inside and then take a picture with your kids. Show your kids that they made a real camera. :)

By the way, that camera your kids made for you is too cool. We needed this thread.

Oh crap, now you've done it! Leica is going to figure out a way to charge us not only for the camera, but also every time we look through the viewfinder. I can only imagine what they're going to charge to actually take a picture :D:D:D

Lol....
