I totally agree but I live in the adventure capital of NZ and I find I keep leaving the majority of my XCD lenses behind when I hike, ride motorbike, mountain bike or snowboard and going back to a smaller kit makes sense even though I will sacrifice IQ. Photography has always been my main interest but I like to combine it with all of the above.The M11 is great but 907 and Hassxy XCD lens IQ is better.
I think part of why I am trading the 907x is because I am so comfortable with M cameras. I had the M8, M9 and Monochrom so I know what I am getting into. I will miss the Hassy for sure because I have always loved the brand and the system, but when I am in the back country with the 21mm only and I want a long lens and my 120mm is at home it is not much good to me. (I had a fall of a cliff a few years back and my back is not a forgiving as it once was)The M11 (I have two) is as good as I have seen on a FF camera ....but its not competitive with MF (any brand) for landscape . It can not overcome the advantage of a larger sensor . This does not mean you can not produce stunning image quality with an M11 ...but if you primary objective is creating images with tons of detail and perhaps print them big ....MF wins every time .
This hasn't changed but now the M11 is competitive (image quality ) with anything available in FF digital . That may be enough for your intended applications .
Also keep in mind that at 60MPs ....your files show every weakness in your technique . You will easily see ..very small misses in focus , slight camera motion and just about anything the photographer can screw up . This why when I shoot sports ..I am happy with a 24MP Sl2-s body . Its more forgiving .
Thank you both for the responses though, really helps me think through my decision.
