Still Loving the M8

Recommended Posts

I love the almost mecury look your M8 has, cfx.

 

thank you.

 

It lost the shiny chrome touch, because I had it nearly every day in my bag in the last 2 years. from europa to asia, then to africa and now in central america...

Loving these photos whilst I'm waiting for my new to me M8 to arrive. This is my second one. The first one died with shutter failure fortunately whilst under it's 3 month warranty. I got a refund and bought an Olympus E-P3 because I got spooked by the used camera dying = expense thing. The Olympus didn't live with me for even a week as it felt plasticy and it wasn't an M8!! So I'm diving in again. I just loved the shooting experience and was heartbroken when the first one died. Can't wait to get my hands on my new one :!

I just bought an M8 a couple of months ago and decided to put a Cobalt Blue leather cover that I've always lusted after when I owned a chrome M6 classic...

 

 

Ack - can't get the link to work here...

Hows that 35 treating ya?

 

I love it! If I can figure out how to actually embed a photo I would put some shots up

I also acquired a Zeiss ZM50/2 and a Summicron 50/2 (recent w/6bit) and am torn as to which one to keep...

 

I bought the Summicron with an M6TTL and am considering selling the M6TTL as well...

Put your dot in a glass with acetone. Wait a night, clean it and you will have a silver Leica dot.

 

Almost a M8P

 

 

You could probably just do it in Silver Efex Pro as well

Nice!

I like to wear .. How do you get?

Another thing, The Hektor need focus adjustments?

 

To get the wear, use it ;-)

I used the M8.2 now for more than a year almost daily, since adding a M9 too a little less, but there are no reservation regarding shooting the M8.2 next to the M9 except for a preference towards the M9 in low light.

 

I had to collimate the Hektor to be spot on on the M8.2 and M9 (as well as the film bodies).

It was easy to do, as I had the lens completely disassembled anyway, when I cleaned and relubed it. Love that lens ;-)

 

My sample seems somewhat special, as it in fact focusses down to 1m !

I am still trying to find out more details about this (factory conversion or did leave some Hektors with close focus ability?
