NX20 vs XPro-1 vs M9

Aaaagh! I've just been mooching in Jessops and handling an XPro-1 and it doesnt quite do it for me.

I want a compact well made large sensor camera with a high quality evf, punchy manual focus assist and lenses that do not focus by bloody wire.

I have an NX10. I like the 20mm lens a lot, but autofocus cant guess what I want sharp. Novoflex plus my nikor 24mm makes camera too big. There is not Leica-M mount option.

So I went to look at the XPRO-1. It looks groovy and feels well made, but is also light and boxy. Not as dense and meaningful in the hand as the NX10. The viewfinder is better. It's lenses are fly by wire. What an own goal for camera aimed at wannabee Leicologists.

The M9. Not great in low light. Is a bit big and boxy to make it worth act of credit card insanity.

So maybe the NX20s viewfinder will be good enough, maybe they will get the promised 24mm premium out before 2015 (with proper manual focus)......

Always waiting for the perfect camera....never comes
