A few weeks ago a very good friend (several years younger than moi) who I've known for thirty odd years was diagnosed with terminal cancer and probably has a few months left at best ... did this shake me up a little? It sure did!
Need I say more? ... life's too short folks and you never know when your number's up. Will I like the 240, is it the right camera for me? .... who knows, but I'm not about to die wondering.
Life is short.. true.
No time like the present...also true.
The M240 is not for everyone.... just as true.
At the end of the day, you shoot what you want to shoot with. I opted, like Keith, for the M240 and, so far, I have not really seen a need to shoot anything else. Ya.. there are those out there that like the Monochrome better.. or feel the M9 has some sort of "magical" sensor or such.. and that's fine. Others prefer film bodies.. others prefer different mirrorless brands (Sony, Olympus, Fuji etc.) still others prefer DSLRs.. it's all good... More power to them.
At the end of the day, you SHOULD shoot with what you want or enjoy shooting with... it's part of the overall process after all.... because life is indeed a lot shorter than any of us ever expected.
