I heard some talk of the x100 and didn't really pay much attention since I didn't know what it was. Well today in the new photo mag they had a review on it. And next to it they had the M9. Being a complete novice I thought they looked like some retro point and shoot that would sell for maybe 200 bucks. SURPRISE SURPRISE! Almost 6k for the M9? I'm a believer in you get what you pay for. So I did a quick google search of the M9 and I see it has a full frame sensor. But there must be more to it to warrant a a price higher than the D3. So I figured I would ask here since you guys always have a way of explaining things in an easy for me to understand way. Does Leica just have a name that demands high prices? I get part of the price is the sensor but there has to be more than that. Is it the compact size? Optics?

I am beginning to see how this is going to be one expensive hobby I got myself into!


Is the retro camera look a new trend or something that has been around a few years? I kind of like the x100 but can't justify it when I am in such a rookie stage of my photography lifespan.

Thank you
