Can't help with a comparison picture, but I just got back from the range where I shot my newly aquired M&P 40c. I traded in a G27 for it. I do not regret getting rid of the G27, not in the least (and I am a Glock fan). Much improved feel/ergonomics esp. with the backstrap option and different mags (pinky ext. or not). I also found the M&P to have significantly lighter recoil and have faster f/u shots. Just got through 250 rounds (WWB & Corbon DPX), all flawless. Try to get your hands on both. I guess you can tell what I think. Good luck!
