Leica M9 announcement clippings

The history of 35-mm photography began almost 100 years ago with the legendary Ur-Leica. Today, it is the Leica M9, a landmark camera that carries the proud heritage of Leica M cameras into the digital age.

The Leica M9 embodies the heritage and amassed experience of more than five decades of the M-System. It is also, simultaneously, a digital system camera at the absolute pinnacle of modern technology. For Leica designers, photography has always been their prime concern – whether film or digital. The combination of an extremely efficient image sensor, the latest digital components, and the classic viewfinder/rangefinder principle – consistently optimized over many years – make the Leica M9 absolutely unique in all the world.

No other professional camera is as compact as a Leica M. Because the camera doesn't  require a bulky mirror box, this allows the construction of a body with a depth of, for example, less than 37 mm in the case of the Leica M9. The M lenses also benefit from an extremely short back focus, the distance between the lens mount and the image plane, which permits the construction of lenses with extremely small dimensions and low weights. The extraordinary compactness of M cameras and M lenses also makes them the ideal camera system for travel and reportage photography. Mirror-bounce and related shake effects in captured images are a problem never encountered by M photographers.
