Just an odd comment... before we get too far being upset about $7k. Is not the Nikon D3x about the same or higher? And it's 14bit... ISO up to 1600 (non-boost)

I am enlightened, but still can't swing it. It's just too much for a hobby.

Enlightenment takes many forms, and usually starts with knowing your limits...

Enlightenment is also formless.

 

Luckily the M9 not past my money limits... but it is still daunting.

swamiji,

 

Yes indeed......I just wanted to see if you would note that!!!!

 

An S2 is definitely beyond my monetary limits but its best for my needs.....

 

Swami B once said ...."do you always let inanimate objects control your life?" Well, not as much as I used to, but sometimes!!! Yes!!!

Of course... I assume you mean Swami Beyondananda.... S2 is beyond my purpose... So money or not, it's not on my agenda

Might be some interesting arbitrage possibilities if the US version comes in at $7,000 and the UK version (with VAT) at £5000. I could order an M9 from B&H and have it sent to my non-New York home (no sales tax), carry it to the UK, drop it off with a pre-arranged British buyer, spend a week in London with an extra $100 a night to spend on a hotel, and give the buyer a $600 discount...

 

Not that I would ever do that, because it would be morally wrong.

JC,

 

Only pans out if you have a pre-arranged trip to London anyway.. a sleeper on Virgin is not free ya know.

 

Just buy the camera and be happy.

Patience is a virtue. Someone will have to sell their mint one for less soon enough. Most Leica enthusiats treat their equipment with care.

If patience is a virtue, I am only one rung below Mother Theresa at the moment...

It's why I have taken the afternoon off from work.

 

I do have a support group meeting to go to in the evening, but I am sure that the forum will behave itself

RockyIII - you do realize European listed prices have sales tax included (as Value Added Tax) - often up to 19%?

 

25% .....
