Cute but a bit long and the comparisons jumped around. Comparing a $1200 camera to one costing $7000 is a bit of a stretch just because they "look similar".

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

I personally think the M9 is a perfect example of the law-of-diminishing returns.

You pay so much more for a minor improvement in IQ and much less features.

Rich man's toy.

I want a X100 with interchangeable lens (it's coming, it will be called LX).

:agree: And comparing sample images those IQ improvements are only at ISO 400 and lower. ISO 800 looks identical to my eye, and beyond that the Fuji does better. To me the main advantages of the M9 would be interchangeable lenses and the shallower DOF. I think I can learn to get around those issues for a $6K savings. :)
