Leica M9 - One year on!

I have selected a range of photos taken over the past year with the Leica M9 and Voigtlander lenses.  It has truly been a pleasure using this camera, costly but more than worth every single penny!  Compact, extremely well built, easy to use (with slight learning curve) and a very good choice as a constant companion.  I've learnt that the only way to capture a picture is if you have the camera with you and so often you see something great and regret not having the equipment to capture it.  My advise is going for something in the Micro 4/3 line of cameras at least. You have the versatility of using different lenses, compact camera with excellent images and the ability to carry it with you without feeling overloaded.  I started with the Panasonic GF1, and still have it (a great M4/3 camera).  As far as Voigtlander lenses are concerned, I still hope to be able to afford some Leica lenses one day.  Not for one moment do I feel the lenses I bought 35mm/f1.4, 15mm/f4.5, 75mm/f2.5, disappointed me.  By far cheaper but well built and I think great images.  I'm looking forward to learning more and spending more time taking photos.  I hope you enjoy the images!
