Antonio, have you had a chance to take some low light photos with the M9? I tried to take some photos at a darkly lit bar on Friday with my M8 but there was quite a lot of noise. I'm thinking of getting an M9 but am afraid ISO performance is only marginally better.
No, I have not yet. The highest ISO I have tried is 640 which I found to be very clean. I hope to try high ISOs soon and will let you know.

James, I don't hesitate going to 1600 on my M9. It starts to get noisy, but it still has lots of detail so that the application of some noise reduction in Lightroom doesn't hurt the image quality significantly.

If you like black and white, then 2500 works just fine. The noise becomes more or less the pseudo film-grain.
