Just bought a used M8 and it has Firmware 2.005 on it. I can see the latest is 2.024 but there have been minor problems with it. Is there a list of what features were added in each firmware?

What version would everyone recommend I go to (if I need to change at all?)

TIA

congrats to your M8 still a fine tool. Start your search for Information About here http://uk.leica-camera.com/Service-Support/Support/Downloads?category=93710&subcategory=&type=&language=all 

As far as I can remember there was no Problem with the latest versions, they just added 6-bit-coding for (than) new lenses.

Thank you. I’m very excited by it, it feels lovely! 

Thanks for the link, I’ll shall read everything avidly :)

One thing I've noticed is that it has a black Leica dot rather than a red one. Was that an option or just an aftermarket update?

The M8.2 had a black dot - if it's one of these cameras, it will say LEICA M8.2 on the hot shoe. Otherwise, it's an aftermarket update.

It doesn’t say M8.2 so guess it was just a cosmetic change. Looks great either way

If you press the black dot and repeat "My Leica M8 makes the best pictures." 7 times your pictures will improve substantially.

Don’t forget to click your heels together.
