looks like a cool camera :thumbup:
oh my that's gorgeous. especially the Tri Elmar M 16-18-21 f4....wouldnt mind having one of them!
omg. wow. A digital leica M. droooooooooooooool
any idea what this lil mutha is gonna sell for?
4795 USD, for the body.
WOW that looks nice
holy moly, I didn't know there was a camera made worth that. Let alone one that will be out dated in a couple of years.
Actually... I thought it would be priced higher.
Given the sticker price of an al a carte M7 and the fact that even a regular M7 body costs approx $4300, I was guessing that the M8 digital rangefinder would be closer to $7000.
In leica-land... I think $4800 is pretty good. Don't forget that leica is kinda like the rolex of camera bodies. I don't think the M8 will be considered out-dated as quickly as other digital cameras out there.
... Lets not forget the 1ds mark II $6000+...
I was thinking more of the whiz bang there is a fifteen megapix out now time to dump this mere leica for the newer one. Not so much that you would be laughed off a job for having last years model.
I personally think a well made 5 mega pix camera in the hands of someone who really knows how to crop in camera, and turn the camera so radical crops aren't needed is more than enough for most things.
Okay if you want to do giant landscapes go for the 4x5 film and drum scanner.
The 10mg is a little low IMO should be 12-15mg and under cost 4k, the Canon 5D likely is a better camera, but M8 sure is pretty
but you gotta love the leice mystique, that oughta be worth the extra three grand
