    Default Who needs a Leica M9 when you can get this for less...


    I know this may seem like blasphemy for all those Leica addicts who opt for the M9, M9-P, and no Leica M9 Monochrome. Sure they are amazing cameras with superb build quality and beautiful lenses, but not all of us have that kind of money. So for me, I opted for something much less expensive but just as beautiful (at least in my eyes). Post your pics of your Olys.

    Better duck, the Leica folks will be coming with pitchforks and torches! Seriously, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I still use an E-P1 that I love for the aesthetics - it just looks like a camera should.

    I agree with the basic premise and regard my E-M5 (and E-P3 before it) as just as beautiful as any Leica. Plus they autofocus, which is a capability I find essential .

    I agree (mostly). I dop love RF focusing and there is nothing on the current m43 cameras that can compare with that but I think the OMD and E-P3 with a P20 or O45 are much more compelling to me than dropping the cost of a trip to Antarctica on a camera and lens. If you crave MF you can always pop on a Jupiter 8 or my favorite the Hexanon 24/2.8 and go old school.

    The OMD and the E-P3 really look the part as well but I would say the GX1 or my favorite the GH2 are also nice (although considerably less sexy) substitutes as well.

    Living in a 2 photographer household.. one who is leica and me who is not...I can honestly say the e-p1 and the OMD are way sexier/easier to use/and get the shots when needed

    on the other hand i do have to give Leica the edge on lenses... they are very very good.... would I personally pay for them being that much better?...well its an odd thing ... the way the Leica market works if you had the money to invest in one you probably would lose financially... depreciation is very low

    and they take nice images
