I hope Leica brings out a Monochrome version of the M9. I see more images from the M8 and M9 converted to monochrome posted than I see done in color. Having used a Monochrome Digital camera, I believe others will like the advantages.
I've never converted a picture from the M9 to monochrome. If an M9-m comes out, I will be tempted. If it also does Infrared, I'll buy one for work. My last Monochrome-IR camera was over $12K, 20 years ago.

Great photos! You've captured their personalities very well.

Beautiful beautiful work Antonio!
Are you zone focussing or really lining up each shot? I'm guessing that since most of the subjects seem like willing participants, you're really nailing focus, but the last three look more spontaneous, so maybe zone focus for those (a lot more DOF in these shots too)??? Assuming zone focus on the latter ones, from the eye or the hip?

Great set of classy images - my favourite is the image of the two gents on the bench feeding the pigeons.
Classy set of work!

You have clearly made friends with your new camera. First am
and last are my favourites.

I haven't quite learned to do zone focusing yet. These were all focused and shot with the camera at eye level. 1, 2, 4 and 5 are posed shots. 3 and 6 were so immersed in their own worlds that they did not even notice I was taking their photo. On 7 the guy on the left saw me and played it up a bit for the camera. The guy on the right was almost asleep.

Thank you everybody for your kind comments. I really appreciate them.
