5 Reasons to Buy a Leica M9 in 2016

The M9 doesn’t cost much more than any other full frame these days. So is it worth it?

 
Going forward.
 
I’m not a still photographer per say. I know my way around the camera, I have been paid to take photos lots of times, but it has been more in a journalistic matter.
On a hobby level I shoot and develop film as a cheap way to practice film exposure for my s16mm experiments.
Lately I have been looking for ways to improve my skills as a cinematographer.

One way is to become better at taking stills.
If I can capture what I want in one frame, surely it must be easier with 24 frames per seconds.

I buy my gear mostly used, but if you feel like buying at least the lenses a brand new:
Voigtlander 28mm f2.0 Ultron,
Voigtlander 50mm f1.5 Nokton,

The video was recorded with,
BMPCC
Canon 30mm f2.0
Speedbooster
