The Leica M9 and X1 became a reality today giving the company a three-way punch for 2009. The Leica M9 is a full-frame digital rangefinder with interchangeable Leica lenses. Shipments are coming to dealers now. The X1 arrives to the market in December with an APS-C sensor. Then, there’s the S2 medium format DSLR that is expected in the next 30-45 days. DPReview has a Hands-On Preview of the M9 along with a tour of the Leica Solms Factory that readers will find interesting.
