    M9 flaring?

    Is it me or it flares?

    I have tested against MP, M8, M6 with M9 but it seems to be closer to M6. I thought I was going crazy so I gave it to my friend to test it out and he says the same thing.

    Anyone else think this?

    It should be identical to your M8, since the magnification is more or less the same, and I doubt they've changed the mechanism much.

    FWIW my M6 flared MUCH more than my M9. The only one that is immune to flare is the M3.

    You're riding different forums Against the M6 classic it flares less, against the M6 TTL far less. I suspect you have grease on your viewfinder windows. Easy enough to do.

    Thats what I thought. I checked and double checked. I first thought it was my magnifier but it doesn't appear to be.

    Against M8 and MP it seems to flare a lot more.

    In that case send it in; something is wrong with that viewfinder.
