So it took too long for me to get the money to buy Grant's M6. Oh well. I just read Dave Beckerman's journal and it looks like he bought it from Grant instead, and if Grant had only told me that Dave wanted it, I would have told him to forget about me and send it somewhere it would get some good use! So now I actually have the money, but I don't know what to buy and who to buy from. So I'll just have to wait until I see a good deal come along. I ended up with more than I thought I'd have and now I'm very tempted to get an M7, but at $800 more than an M6 classic (both on eBay) I'll have to give up the camcorder and possibly a lens. I really don't want to have to do that. There is a guy selling an M6 for a bit more than I want to pay for it, but it's supposed to be in like new condition, which is always a plus. Who knows? I just really wish I could be done with this crap. I hate obsessing over equipment, but I hate regretting bad decisions even more, so I really want to do this right, because I don't want to be trading my M6 (or M7) for anything, at least not any time soon.
