I have been using Leica cameras for a while, starting a couple of decades ago with a couple of Leica M2s. I was intrigued when the digital Leicas came out, but usually lagged behind, buying an M8 when the M9 appeared, and buying the M9 when the M240 appeared. This time, I decided to skip the 240 for a used M10. Clearly Leicas aren't bought from a price performance basis. They're great cameras with great lenses, but you can certainly do great work with far cheaper cameras. The M10 is a fair change from the M9, some bad but most good. First, it has a better, higher MP sensor with far superior low ISO performance. Second, it has a very understated shutter release compared to the M9. On the negative side, boy does it go through the battery. I started with a battery that wasn't at 100% but even so by lunch I was changing batteries. The M10 has live view (so I can get adapted lenses somewhat or use lenses which are not rangefinder coupled -- and I have some) and it has an EVF available which I intend to buy. The viewfinder has electronic lens frames rather than mechanical ones, and that's a slight downside since until the M10 wakes up from its autosleep, the frames are not there. It has focus aids (peaking, magnification) on the live view which I think I will end up using, though not in normal use. Menus are somewhat simplified but well organized with a favorites menu on top of a conventional menu. It's going to take some time to get used to the new camera, it's different enough to throw me off a little but I think I will like it better once I have. Here are a few frames from my walk around the Atlanta Botanical Garden. The last one is an HDR which is a sort of representation of the multibracketing capability. I did a 5 shot bracket, handheld of a really high contrast subject and the 5 shots fired quickly enough to actually do a reasonably good synchronization without a tripod. I kind of like the effect since the subject is a topiary version of the Phoenix.
