Thanks Adam. I should try to find another M9 to compare mine against. The streaky banding really only is visible if files are pushed a couple stops or more, at least most of the time. For most normal situations it's unnoticeable. It just really freaked me out last week with the blatantly bad banding I posted... Problem with the M240 is finding one. Too impatient to wait, too lazy to actually look for one. Saves me $7000 too. While I think it will be a pretty big improvement in usability over the M9, the little quirks you're reporting, and...Show more →
Think it's settled, I'm getting the 21 SEM, Ron your fault, so I'll send you the bill in the mail..
Now that you mention it, I actually do think that's the problem with the 28cron, it's to well corrected in camera. Maybe I should try turning off lens corrections and see if that helps?!
Honestly, there are a lot of small frustrations with the camera, the slow startup is the worst of them.. But I think it's just because I sold off the M9P a few months back, so I've been using D4/D700/D800 and they're all faster then necessary cameras. The other thing I'm having problems with, is actually going out and using it (so uninspired where I live). But to be honest with you, I don't think the colors are going to be an issue, I mean, I don't think that CCD vs CMOS is as big an issue as people make it out to be. HOWEVER, I do think that if you don't need the 2 stops of ISO, then why bother buying the M240 (biggest selling point in my opinion)... Unless you love the rangefinder focusing, and you you want a more precise mechanism. I can definitely attest to the fact that it's a heck of a lot easier to focus the M240 then the M9 or M9P. Honestly though, I think I've used live view twice, and movie mode was used once (accidentally) at my wedding, by one of my drunk guests.
