If the M8 didn't have so many issues I'd still be shooting one. Scratch that, if Leica NJ service weren't so smug and unhelpful I'd still be shooting my M8. They are much, much better now. Much better, and fast.
Two nights ago I was packing to go on a location scout and to shoot the subject interview to build the creative brief. I took 1 gh3, the omd, a shoulder bag of lenses.
Sitting on my desk full charged with new batteries, was my M8. I fired a shot into the studio with mixed light and it looked so pretty, I thought why not . . . and threw it in the bag also.
Today Set up the gh3 on a tripod, dropped a mike out of frame, ran the gh3 and picked up the M-8, turned it on, red light stays lit, dead. Switched batteries . . . (new battery) . . . dead, switch cards (recently formatted . . . dead.
Thought screw it, picked up the OMD and completed the scout and interview.
Tonight, was taking stuff out of the bag and there was the m-8. Turned it on and bam . . . works fine.]
