Ummm when I looked at a M9 it had no auto focus so how does its auto focus never miss? I couldn't get on with the M9 when I tried it out. The lens quality is amazing on Leica glass and the M9 certainly is a very capable camera but it doesn't have auto focus just all the other rangefinders.
Either that or I'm very very wrong and a fool. But I certainly didn't find any autofocus on the M9 or I probably would have bought it.
You are quite right, and when KR wrote his review for the M9, his statement about it having 'autofocus' caused a stir then, too. It just appears that he doesn't quite understand the meaning of the word 'automatic'. What he means is that the M9's focus-assist system makes manual focussing very accurate - as opposed to 'it focusses the lens for you', which is how most of us would interpret the word 'autofocus'. It may be a private joke on his part, created to gain attention.
Most amusing for me in the 5D III review was the comment about how it doesn't have wifi, unlike his iPod Touch which has had it for years. I'm just wondering if he's going to complain that he can't play Angry Birds and listen to his music collection on the 5D as well?
I'm convinced it's all just tongue-in-cheek.
I actually agree with his opinion of the 'rate' button, and thought his comments about the 'zoomed-in histogram' were quite valid.
