Hi all. Here's a link to a story written by a PJ who took a Leica M8 to Iran. Interesting comments about Leica's quality of RAW files. Stern Magazine is known to be one of the world's most discerning photo-journalism magazines. Camera Corner: The Leica M8 on Assignment I am wary of posting these kinds of stories here. When Benjikan posted a lot of stuff about... uh, I think it was Pentax... anyway, when people post cheer-leading articles about certain brands others are right to wonder about their motivations. Obviously I'm a Leica fan, and am pleased to see my own choices reinforced by glowing reports written by real in-the-field professionals... but my sole motivation is to educate my fellow members here. What I really am is a Rangefinder fan, and I found some comments about access to certain subjects quite interesting. The choice of camera for a photographer who wants to shoot people is quite important. I consider myself more of a dRF evangelist than a single-brand kind of guy, and I provide these kinds of links in that spirit. I love my M8 as much as my Epson R-D1! I really like RF cameras, esp. dRF. I hope the (highly unlikely) rumors of an impending Nikon dRF are true, and hope you'll forgive me for getting everyone excited about ridiculously expensive cameras.
