In addition to having already shot 2 weddings with the DMR, I brought it with me to LA as I work on a Commercial TV shoot. I was free yesterday, so went to Catalina Island for a day of pure tourist shooting. Very overcast in the morning and a lot brighter in the afternoon. New insights: battery last a long time even with constant LCD with histogram review set for 5 seconds. Shot over 250+ images before the battery warned of being low. But it never quit before I left the Island with five SD 1 gig cards full. Leica thoughtfully provides both a wall charger and a car charger with the DMR. Good if you're vacationing by car, or, like me traveling from the Church to the Reception and can top off the battery. I've ordered a second battery, but it'll be awhile before I get it I'll wager. Next insight is that the camera does quite well at ISO 400 and 800. They are the ISOs I set most of the time. Noise is an issue IF you underexpose too much ... but that's true for the Canon 1DsMKII also. I still am of the opinion that the DMR exhibits a greater dynamic range than my 1DsMKII, allowing me more latitude on the exposures with the DMR ( less tendency to slightly underexposing to preserve the highlights. I also like the histogram on the DMR which is a light overlay on the full LCD image. The two R lenses I took to Catalina were the 28-90/2.8-4.5 and a 500/8 R Mirror. I also have a 35/1.4, 50/1.4 and the new 90/2 with me ... but I just kept it simple for the Catalina trip. I used ISO 800 a lot with the 500 mirror to increase the shutter speed (The 500 mirror is the equivalent of almost a 700mm on the DMR due to the 3.7X lens factor). Next test is to try the 35/1.4 in low light and boost the ISO to 1600.
