    I wish they would give us manual lens selection on the M8, but then we wouldn’t pay them $$$ to code our lenses.

    Actually, the firmware on my M9T is 1.5 already. Haven’t tested against my standard M9 but subjectively images look crisper overall, less noise. Preview on the in camera LCD also seems to benefit from it.

    Will they give as full-bit M8 files?
