When the M8 came out there was this poll about chrome or black, what about the M9..

Edit, i thought I made this a poll, but it didn't come through the system, apparently... :(

well I guess the chrome will be there likely as a M9.2 update (with all the other 8.2 updates)
really pity they skipped the framecounter on top of the cam
and I don't like the grey color

Grey looks and feels great in the flesh. I'd take a grey and change the covering to vulkanite...

Well, if history repeats itself, then the M9 will be the last M-body.

Remember the R-series: the R8 was available in chrome and black. With the R9, Leica dumped the beautiful chrome body for an anthracite (similar to grey) body.
And? What happened to the R-system?

So, the M-system is doomed!

True, history does move in chromatic sweeps...

I like grey, on any camera.
