I hadn't realized until seeing you post your image here that Eric had passed. My heartfelt condolences to you. Seeing pictures of him and pictures he made give a real sense of someone who would have been fun to know and be around.
I hope you can bond with the M9...it's truly a wonderful camera. I miss not having mine but sort feel I do with my MM. Anyway this thread is stronger with your contributions.
Seeing so many really nice images from long-time M9 people here (Sevres, Richard and Maggieo to name 3) as well as newer contributors is a treat!
M9 lives and it rocks!
