The New Leica M9-P

The Leica M9 now has a twin sister: the new Leica M9-P! But there’s more good news to come: the M system can also celebrate the arrival of a brand-new lens, the Leica Super-Elmar-M 1:3.4/21 mm ASPH
From the Press release:

In terms of technology, the Leica M9-P and the M9 are identical twins. Both possess the same performance characteristics and exactly the same advantages. But they are not quite identical - a couple of details make them different.

For example, the LEICA M9-P is available in two different finishes. We listened to the wishes, needs, and personal tastes of Leica photographers, so now the M9-P is available in two different options - black paint and the unobtrusive, classical silver chrome finish well-known from generations of Leica cameras.
Thanks to its scratch-resistant sapphire crystal monitor cover glass and elaborate construction in the Leica factory from only the highest-quality materials, the new Leica M9-P is even more resilient and can look forward to an even longer working life.

The Leica M9-P now features an extremely scratch-resistant, almost unbreakable, sapphire crystal cover for its LCD monitor display. Sapphire crystal is one of the world's hardest materials and so hard that it can only be worked with special diamond-cutting tools. The antireflective coating on both sides of the monitor cover glass further improves image reviewing, particularly in unfavorable lighting conditions.
The Leica M9-P is optionally available in the classical Leica silver chrome camera finish or in black paint - the M9 offers two options, elegant steel gray or black paint. The Leica M9-P also features vulcanite leathering with particularly good grip characteristics.
