I was wondering if anyone has any new information on this topic in light of the suggestions in the long thread that M9 b&w output might not (or at least not easily) match that of M8? One individual suggested it might have something to do with compressed 8 bit (M8) vs. m9 native files (or something like that)? Anyway, i realize its still early in the M9 learning curve but this is a key issue for me and would be very interested in any further learnings in this area.

Thanks much, tony.
