Hi - First post re:M8
Leica cameras - Leica/minoltaCL,M3 M7 M8. Rec'd the M8 from Eric @ Tamarkin at 9PM Nov 6th, left for 3 weeks in Myanmar Nov 7th at 7 AM. Visited hill tribes. Under extreme use conditions, dust, water, banging around in pick up truck,longtail boats, 100 degree temps, loaning to villagers to record their thoughts, it is one helluva fine camera, worthy addition to the Leica family. Used 28 Elmarit, 50 Nocti, 90 Summicron, RAW, made about 3100 images. No complaints about IR or green blobs,as my goal is content, not the perfect print. It has replaced my 5D as permanent sidekick. Is it a pocket camera? Surely as much an my Leica film cameras. Next test is Ladakh in Feb - cold, altitude. Best test is to make photographs.
