Don't you find those posts about someone wanting reassurance in their decision-making (when actually they have already made up their mind what they are going to do) really annoying? Well, here's another one ...
I have an M8. I want an M9. Actually I want a nice shiny new M9-P. I dont need it, I want it. And sorry, no, I can't rationalise it although I'll try if you insist.
I've given up smoking, and believe it or not what I am saving will fund it. So I reckon I can have the camera I want (not need) and just maybe live a few extra years to enjoy it.
Ok so we got that straight?!
Now, yesterday I tried a demo M9 with my 50 'lux. Well that was an eye-opener, literally. The field of view, in terms of framelines and final image, was much wider than I'd anticipated. Actually, looks a lot more than the 33%-ish 'crop' caused by the M8.
So, a couple of questions for those of you who went from M8 to M9 (and preferably haven't shot film; I haven't - much):
* How quickly did you adjust to the wider field of view
* Did you change your arsenal of lenses - can't afford to do that as well
* Did you have to use longer focal length lenses to accommodate the lack of a 'crop'
As I say, your replies won't make any difference to me whatsoever.....I'm just interested!
Thanks in advance for participating
