    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.

    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

    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
