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!
I had to think of this very funny post by Honus today... My Patricia belongs to the " Do you really have to waste your money on camera's?" school of thought, so my sympathy was with Honus and I kept the M8 completely under strict security (I thought) . Today was our anniversary. My present: A small slip of paper with "good for one Leica M8" written on it
