Just wanted to let everyone know that I have now sold myself in to a life of servitude and have traded in my beloved M8 (sad to see it go) for an M9.

Silly really to post such a thing but I'm very happy so far with what I've seen. :D

Whoa, very nice! Congrats - and enjoy in good health! :)

It's interesting about making the switch from an M8 to an M9 (I did the same). While so very similar, it's all the little ergonomic things that make it feel more polished and a joy to use. Of course, the IQ is very similar to the M8 - but the files are substantially larger (and of course, full frame). Time to rediscover your lenses!

Absolutely right.

The first thing to hit me was the size of the framelines which are much bigger than in the M8. Other things are the ability to change the ISO setting on the fly and of course the stunning images it produces. I haven't had much chance to use it yet but when I get a few decent images I'll post some up.
