    I rented a Leica M9 with a 50mm 2.4 lens and walked around Hollywood Blvd, Venice beach and Santa Monica mall. Quite a difference from my micro 2/3 Lumix GF1 with my 20mm 1.7. I took a bunch of shots and I'm still processing a lot of them. But I thought I'd post a few here. If anyone gets a chance to use a Leica body and lens, it's quite an experience.

    My out the door total was $385 for 3 days. I rented from and chose not to pay for delivery to me directly but to have them ship it to Hooper's camera and save a little money. I picked it up and dropped it off at Hoopers. Rental included 1 battery, the charger and a strap. Had a great experience with and will do business with them again. Considering I probably won't have the funds to purchase this approximately $8500 camera and lense, I thought the cost for the experience was well worth it. The Leica has stripped down features, no auto focus, 1 shoot and 1 playback menu, no live view or anything like that. Select fstop from a lens ring, shutter speed from a dial, ISO and WB from menu options. I loved the simplicity of it.
