Re: They think it will sell.

The monochrome M9 makes sense from a business point of view. All they had to do was respec a single component and they have a new product to sell. No changes to tooling or assembly training. It is a 'no-lose' situation for them. They can even scrap the model and convert all of the pre-production modules back to the regular M9.

I agree with you on the X1-X2. I considered it, but put my money into the Zeiss 24mm for the NEX system instead. If I need 'small' I carry the Dlux5
