Hi I am a newbie with a Leica M8.  I found in the M8 a wonderful camera with minimalist operations and a super cool alternative to my M5.   I have decided to got a M8 because  many bad reviews were posted....I said to myself they is something wrong with those ''teky weeky boys''.  They are all jealous, there is a conspiration agains Leica.....bad sensor, obsolete technology, ISO limitation poor resolution LCD, bad features...and so on.   But for me the M8 has proven to be an effective camera

On the NE face of Mkinvartsveri (Kazbek; 5054 m) in the Georgian Caucasus. Together with a team a Georgian alpinists, we were the first people on that route in over 50 years, and the first ones to ski it. Along came the M8.2 and a Contax T3.

Bought the Voigtlander 21mm F1.4 Nokton to test against the 21mm Summilux. In the end I didn’t like it enough so it has been relegated for color on the M8. Then yesterday I downloaded Silver Efex 3.0 and had a great time with it. Nokton at 1.4 too bad about the bokeh.

Tried the 28mm Elmarit v1 the one with the big butt on the M8.2 and by golly it meters with -2 exposure comp. Nice subject separation even at F/4 and around 7 feet away.

I used to have the rare 9-element 28/2.8 Elmarit v1 too and metering was known to be a problem with this lens.  I made a tidy profit when I sold the lens though, thanks to its rareness.
