Digital Leica M8 / M8.2 / M9 / M-E /Mono / M10 aka "M" Discussions about the Leica M8 /M 8.2 / M9 / M9-P/ M-E / M Monochrom / M10 aka "M": Leica digital M mount rangefinder cameras. Naming the new digital M the "Leica M" is VERY unfortunate as it will only confuse newbies with other Leica M cameras of the the past. Happily there is room for confusion with only the past 59 years of Leica M production ... since Leica introduced the Leica M system in 1953. All Hail for the Leica Marketing Department learning Leica M history!

A trade-in for a "cofee-stain" M8 for an M9 or M9-P is free of charge if within 2 years?

I'm missing context here. ::scratches head::

Fellow RFF member: I respect your bandwidth by not posting images larger than 800px on the longest side, and by removing image in a quote.
Together we can combat bandwidth waste (and image scrolling).

3 years extended warranty is quite possible. Even regular, I've seen new M8.2-s been offered up to about a year ago.

M8.2 is still listed in many places, no idea about actual availability. The list price is typically fairly close to M-E.

This is probably no help, but here goes:

You said you enjoyed film more than digital…..
The Monochrom is in my view the very first digital Leica that can really compete with film, perhaps even surpass it, now that high ISO B/W films are disappearing.

Get the M9 upgrade yourself; then sell it and put that money away to save towards a Monochrom.

In the meantime keep shooting film, which is my view is still unsurpassed by any digital Leica except the Mono...

You can still enjoy photographing that way, and then make the step to a really remarkable camera a bit later...

I think it's the opposite. Color digital surpassed color film a while ago. It was black and white that was always better with film. The MM is just now allowing B&W digital to catch up, IMO, although I'd still probably prefer darkroom B&W prints.

I agree with this: You don?t shoot the screen, put a gaffer tape on it and forget the whole thing . Use it as a film body. Leica photography was never meant to be :"Click, check the screen. oh my subject escaped..."

LOL

One could say it's not for chimping and that's alright... but don't you guys ever get the idea of using it for instantly showing images to the people you shot or for reviewing images once the action died down or for... many other things?

"Hey I'm using a Leica here... no peeking at images I just took!"
