I love my Leica M8

Recommended Posts

Just returned from a 4 week trip to Africa. 2500 photo's and not a single error or problem.

 

Just a little dirty....

Cool dirty M8. The lens filter, that is a necessity for the M8, comes in handy in a situation like your trip huh?

That's the way a Leica M8 should look like...

Has anyone put a black Leica logo on a silver body? I'm wondering how that would look, It looks great on a black body.

 

 

Looks like nobody has. I decided to see what it looks like on my own. Not bad at all. BTW, this is only a PSCS4 job. It still has its original Red Dot.

I just recently got back from ten days in Belize and Guatemala which inspired this little bit o' camera porn:

My new Leica M8.2 and Leica 50/2 Summicron is a fantastic combination for street shots

in San Francisco

 

Do you have a gallery of these? I'm always interested in other people's SF work. Thanks!

I know I already posted this one recently but I guess this is just the right threat to post it again:

Taken with the cheapest NIKON DSLR, the D3000 with a 1.4/30mm Sigma... I like this combination, but I love my Leica

Hi all,

 

I only recently bought into a Leica M system. Managed to secure a used M6 black in a very good condition with a 90mm summicron type II (i think) at Aperture and then was lucky enough to spot a very very good deal for an M8 with a 35mm cron APSH at RG Lewis.

 

I've primarily been a Nikon guy, but so far a week with the Leicas have changed my life - for one, I can actually carry the camera with me everyday, the D700 was much too bulky. The M6 has smoother operation, smooth shutter release, quieter shutter and a more 'solid' feel and I've never had so much pleasure taking pictures than with the Leicas.

 

With the M8, I was amazed with the sharpness and clarity of the files, at base ISOs, they beat the D700 hands down, and maybe it is just me, but I feel that the M8 records more balanced colours compared the the Nikon - but this is just a visual indication.

 

Anyway I am attaching some pictures of my new babies, one of which is the obligatory self portrait shot! Also posted more pictures of the cameras on my website here: My Leicas. | Kang : Photographer . I am very happy to be a Leica user now and will try and be more engaging in this forum.

      Hi everyone , I have been told that a lot of early Leicas have three screws around the baseplate tripod mount , I've also been told that all or most of the fake Leicas have those same screws. Can anyone tell me when Leica stopped adding those screws on the baseplate please.
      I own a fake body which I purchased knowing that it is fake by the way :)

      This Camera was deliverded to me 18 Nov. directly from Leica Camera AG. I opened the box to examine the cameras functions indoors. There are less than 100 shutter actuations.The box includes everything exactly how it was shipped to me by Leica AG. It is a very beautiful premium compact camera with 4/3 sensor and great functions.
      I will ship anywhere in EU for $25.00 until Dec 15.
      After Dec. 16 I will bring to The States and ship inside the US for free.

      Does anyone own or has anyone seen a Leica Q2 Thumb support?
      Thanks in advance for a quick ping if you have — cheers!

      Disclaimer: I am very new to the SLx firmware, so it may be user error here, but thanks in advance if you can solve this issue.  
       
      Does anyone have an idea how to turn on permanent exposure simulation when the camera is in Manual mode ( set aperture, set shutter speed, auto iso)?  The SL2 will not preview the exposure even when the shutter is half way pressed.  I think it’s the autoISO that is disabling the exp preview in Manual mode.  When you use exposure compensation in Manual mode, it doesn’t change the look of the preview on the lcd at all, the exposure doesn’t seem to change until you take a picture and then see the screen as all black or washed out.  
      I had the same problem with the Q2, I posted there a few months ago without a solid answer to the issue.  
      Even when the exposure simulation is set to PASM, the exposure (f stop, shutter speed and iso) is not simulated when looking at the rear LCD or through the view finder.  
      On the M10-p, this is not the same deficiency of exposure preview at all.  On the M, With the shutter set, the aperture set (manual lens of course), and the iso on Auto, you can change the Ev compensation and watch the preview react by brightening or darkening without having to half press the shutter.  The live view reflects the shot you are actually taking, unlike the SL2 which does not display how bright or dark the shot is going to come out.
