Thank you - I will indeed. as for the eyes, mine are old as well, +2.5 contacts - but I can actually focus the M9 even without them in, I think that with practice there is a 'feel' for the focus patch, even if you can't really focus on it!
The X100 is undoubtedly a lovely camera, and it produces great images . . . just not for me.
. . . and of course I'll keep dropping in, one of the reasons for wanting to keep it was the great community around here.
all the best
