leica x2 or m8?

hi guys,

right now i have an m5 with a 50mm f2.8 elmar and planning to buy a digital leica because of the cost of buying film and developing it. i dont plan to sell the m5 but looking to buy an m8 or an x2

i can get an m8 for 999 dollars with an extra battery with scratches dont know the exacti actuation though. i also can get an x2 mint condition like brand new for 900 dollars.

which do you think is the better buy?

few notes

1 i want a 35mm FOV. if i buy the m8 im going to use the 50mm which i think wont like since the m8 is not a full frame.

2 is the image quality of m8 so much better than the x2 to make the m8 worth it since i would need to save up again for a cron 35mm

3 i will use it mainly for street photography. i dont mind the manual focusing since i zone focus almost always

thanks!!!

Leica X2
