As soon as you use a full frame sensor, you'll never want anything else.
You look at your photo and it's like being there, you can't describe it until you see it.
Normal sensors (m4/3rds or APS-C) are great, a full frame sensor is just better. Add this to an amazing lens (albeit overpriced) and you'll never want anything less.
There's something magical about a camera this nice... But then I'm a saddo.

I have a 1ds mk2 and a 650d as a backup and a plethora of very expensive L glass, i'm not convinced I could tell the difference in frame for frame shot, and in some ways the 650d gives a more pleasing image to my eye, which like anything else is subjective.

But hang a gallery full of identically staged shots with a range of cameras, even medium format and you'd be hard pushed to "identify" an individual camera. There is a limit to sensor information and optic quality.

I believe that there is quite a difference but you may need to use a newer full frame sensor to be able to see it. I am far less sure that the lecia full frame sensor is any better than a Nikon / Canon / Sony full frame sensor... Ken Rockwell has an excellent article on FX v DX sensors on his site (see below for a link) and from it I take that FX really is noticeably better in the detail it resolves.

Well, we'll have to disagree then.
The m9-P uses a far superior sensor to your 1ds so I don't think you're comparing like with like. L-glass is lovely (I use it) but it's not as good as a high end Leica lens. Not as expensive either, mind.
I don't own a Leica, and probably never will, but all this reverse snobbery and obsessive / aggressive brand loyalty is boring and seems to be a common trait show by photographers.
Each to their own.
