Najibs - there seems to be some exposure difference between the two and exif shows it being a half stop brighter with the Voigtander lens. IMO, the biggest difference is background rendering, though CV lenses tend to be slightly gentler with contrast.
Edward - like the first couple and the colors you're getting tool
Joakim - I've been enjoying your recent street images. Is this a new project? It seems to be a new tangent compared to what you've posted in the past.
Charles - love the rendering - it really suits the subject.
Mirek - cool juxtaposition of organic and geometric. Seems we're a long way from spring here...
Ron,nice tree on your photos,im waiting from you photos of tree from M240 sharper or equal sharp as on my M9,your photos from M9 was ultra sharp.Can M240 outperform M9 on sharpness?im want to buy M240 too,but still waiting
As mentioned before, for these kinds of high detail scenes, I've turned off output sharpening when downsizing the images for the web because the program I use only has an on/off sharpening option - no control over the amount and I thought these kinds of scenes were looking too crunchy.
At full rez the M240 does feel slightly different from the M9 in terms of apparent sharpness. I attribute this to its slightly higher resolution doing a better job at reducing fine detail aliasing. That image aliasing with the M9 could contribute to the impression of greater sharpness, but is debatable, at least for me, whether it was in fact real image detail and not the result of artifacts.
It would seem we all have different priorities. For me, the M240 upgrade was more about functionality in certain kinds of situations where I value speed. Having just shot a wedding with it, it definitely performed more to my liking than the M9 did. Faster, quieter, deeper buffer (never hit its limit, though kept ISO at 1000 or lower where it's deepest), longer battery life.
Image quality differences between it and the M9 are not great and some of it will be subjective preferences. Therefore I fully appreciate why some have not given up their M9s, or even returned to them after trying the M240.
What's most important is to do what makes sense for you!
