So I see the M2 is out for 2013/14, and is there any difference? Is it just a fishbowl version of the M1 with the same tech? I couldn't find the Anon catalog up to actually compare.
While I have not tried them, the M2's have 8 magnets vs. the M1's 6. The M1's always felt flimsy to me compared to Airbrakes and O/I's and I believe the M2's have addressed this issue. The magnets are a great concept but I personally prefer Oakley's and Smiths because of the frames but the Blue Lagoon lens for the M1's is one of my favorites. I am excited to see how the new M2 frame is because they look great. Hope that helps.
What's the diff in the Smith and Oakley frames versus the Anons?
In my last post I was referring to the fact that the Oakleys and Smiths are more rigid frames where the Anon, to me, feels more rubbery. I am sure others can add more subtle differences but Smiths and M2's are frameless and the Airbrakes and M1's have more traditional frames that surround the lenses.
