If its not understandable to us what the difference might be in a 1x non
crop and a 1.3 crop it will be understandable when we see a nice sizable
chunk of top famous pros using the new camera. The Magnum people are a top
candidate usual suspect. They kept using M's when the mindset was that the
Nikon F's were taking over in the 60's and 70's. They just kept using them.
And everyone knew they were the best. Into the 80's and 90's.
We're just going to see a whole bunch of big names using the M9.
And we're going to see their results in the magazines on the covers too and
on the walls of the top galleries. And on the internet.
It will be on the cover of lots of photo magazines.
