Re: Crazy buying another M9?

I had an M9 and then ditched all the digital gear for a year of film. Now a year on I'm thinking of getting another M9, a camera I love. Is it crazy to buy a used M9 now with all the new cameras coming from Sony Fuji ect in the near future? Could the IQ ever be as special as that coming from the M9 50 Lux asph combo?

I would be interested in your thoughts!))

You're not crazy, you've just come to grips with reality. I still have my M9, pretty much every M mount lens I want, pretty much every Nikon camera and F mount lens I want (D800E, 200/2, Zeiss 135 APO, Zeiss 100/2, Voigt 125 APO, 50/1.2, etc) - and I'm thinking seriously about buying another M9, because, like you say, NOTHING I'VE SEEN beats that M9 / 50 asph combo. Their images, at their best, are more like looking through a window into the past than looking at a stored image. I am curious how a Pentax 645D compares, but I don't yet have one.
