I had an M8.2 and I can't figure out what you mean by "pokey viewfinder." Also I didn't happen to notice a poor dynamic range (not saying it isn't). I did find the color was excellent--vivid and saturated! One of my reasons for changing to the M9 was to be able to manually enter the lens ID. And I'm happier with the non-cropping sensor.

I liked the M8.2 best with the 28mm and 21mm lenses. The 28 gave a 37mm equivalent which was very useful, and the 21 gave a perfect 28mm field. I got some good shots with the 75mm Summicron on it, too.

Well, I think you should get the M240! Everyone says it's great!
May the light be with you.
