Impressive, historically relevant piece of kit. Why buy a Leica M9?
Read what Steve Huff (Mr Mirrorless) has to say http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/
Today I bought a mint 16-35 f/2.8II from a photographer clearing out his 5D2, lenses and 580EXII which he replaced with an RX1.
I had a play. Let me tell you, it's a very credible, superb camera.
It wouldn't work for my needs which require the versatility of a DSLR system, but still, in the right hands....
Very nice bit of kit.. Enjoy
I,read the title of this thread and knew it would be you Dylan ...
+1 for GoPro... Put it on a headband, set it and forget it. After your Irish Yoga, scrape yourself up, put your pants back on and check out what happened the day before
50mm of whatever brand is better than the other two Lenses in your case...not because the two are bad, but because they are too long to be your only lens. 40mm is another option but it will be f2.8.
BIG VOTE for my BIG GUN!!!
1Dx... +5 and why?
1. It's BIG, ideal for big hands.
2. It's for people who can carry heavy stuff, and not complain like a little girl about weight and size.
3. It's a photo weapon, and not a little toy
4. Better ISO.
5. Faster shutter speed 12-14 fps - MONSTER.
6. Louder shutter - I paid 6.200,00 Euro for freekin' camera who gives a sh.. if attracts a little attention (you are photographer, you should have "stronger armour" ... "thick skin", if you can't handle pressure of few people complaining, and you care a lot about what they all have to say, than you shouldn't do photography... stop crying and start taking photos. (You don't buy a Ferrari, and than drive only in 1st gear, you shift your 6 or 7 gears, and enjoy in speed of light, with big sound coming from your engine, not your speakers).
1Dx = Ferrari
7. Better water sealing.
8. 400000 shutter cycles.
9. Better video quality.
I hope you get the point why 1Dx over anything else on this planet ...
No hard feelings people, but pay more - get more.
