Re: Zeiss 2.8/35mm C + 2.8/25mm ZM Shots

I don't really shoot tele, either. The M8 is a slightly bigger sensor, but you have to weigh whether it makes THAT much of a difference in your field of view, because, performance wise, the NEX has a better sensor.

So, mounting a 35mm lens on an M8 gives you a nearly 47mm equivalent, versus a 52mm equivalent on NEX. Will that affect your shooting that much?

IMO, the only real reason you should consider an M8 or M8.2 is if you're just dying to use a rangefinder focusing system. Field of view and IQ wise, I'm not so sure if it's worth it (I've been having my own debate about this, as well.)

p.s. you'll also have to deal with using IR filters with the M8.
