I have a love-hate relation ship with my M8

 

every now and then when it anoyes me again I decide to sell the piece of shit

and moments later I love it again and giving it names, let it slip into my hands just for the fun of it

 

;-)

I bought a Panasonic GF-1 about a year ago and put away my "annoying" M8. The GF-1 is easy to carry around and takes great snap shots. Several weeks ago my wife and I went on a trip to a place that just begged to be photographed. I took the GF-1. When we got home I looked at the pictures and while they were very nice they weren't in the same league as the pictures that I could have taken with my M8.

Put good Leica lenses on an M8 and use the camera within its performance envelope and you (we) will be rewarded with jewels on the card. I have a GF1 and D300s, all great cameras, but not the same, even with great lenses.

There already is one.

What a waste of the 50 Lux ASPH in my opinion....

 

I think, the focus tab should have been made of massive gold instead of plastic.

Other from that, I find, it is a very, very beautiful camera.

A few years ago I was in Cochem (Germany) & saw a gold M-something for sale at the local market (might have been a wine festival or similar, I forget

)

 

Anyway, this was before I knew anything much about Leica & I thought that it must be a fake.In retrospect I should have bought it - as an investment obviously.

Wow, just realized one of my posts on this thread disappeared without a trace. Unless I was in a dream when posting that...

 

Anyway...
