I've been playing with a couple of Leica digi cameras today
I like them I like them a lot
You are an evil, evil man...
Do you have an opinion of M8 yet
I couldn't agree more... :er:
okay, I need a cold shower...
M8 is great
see, it even rhymes
just love the fact you have to remove the base-plate to change SD card and battery.
Its just a classic M but digital.
Im in love
You haven't lived until you've shot wide angle with a Leica M series camera. No mirror, no need to design retrofocus into the WA lenses. They are simply stunning - contrastiest WA lenses in the industry. M6 was the last one I had but I would imagine they do a pretty decent job with digital.
What is the price? How well do Leica sell?
in UK about £3000-3500 body
EOS 1d mk2 £2300
NIKON D2XS £2500
EOS 1ds mk2 £4500
so its not cheap but a normal M isnt cheap. it will sell but not in big numbers, but I hope im wrong.
But it is a joy to use
any samples, as in shots
OMG! that is... wow... my car costed me £1000 2 years ago....
no, sorry. The M8 I got to play with was one of only 3 in the UK and has old firmware inside. The pics I did take were excellent in everyway. Colour, sharpness and noise, but I only took JPGs as we had no software for RAW files.
I sooooo want one
