    MP cost you twice as much as any m4 or m2. And that's including a CLA from DAG or Sherry.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    If I had to question myself I wouldn't buy one.

    Hi

    In UK there is a 20% differential between a M2 and M4 (typically) and a used MP > 3x differential between serviced M2 and MP.

    Many people will need a quick load kit with M2, but the kit is not that expensive or difficult to get.

    Some people prefer two take up spools.

    But the more deliberate loading of M2 verses a M4 or MP is only a problem with Gatlling gun style shooting...

    P.S. Many people into cine film or other bulk 35mm wont find the MP chassis acceptable, no IXMOO

    P.S. If you wear glasses, you should probably go for a 0.58 viewfinder.[/QUOTE]


    Hi,
    sorry for my total ignorance about issue, but why if one wear glasses it's better 0,58 viewfinder?

    I think with glasses better is to have 0.85, not 0.58

    Thanks, Darko. But I still do not understand why.
    Is it because there is less distance between the viewfinder and the image-plane?

    pluto - when you wear glasses your eyeball isn't as close to the viewfinder. The .58x viewfinder has a lot of space around the framelines, more space around the 28 and the 35mm framelines (the frameline box is essentially smaller) so those with glasses can actually see the frameline. When you have glasses and say the .85x viewfinder, the 28 isn't there and the 35mm is much closer to the edge, with glasses, you wouldn't be able to see the 35mm frameline at all.
