went to a friends wedding and took a few snaps.
50mm pre-asph summilux with the m8 was nice and fun.

just a few shots from an event I shot for the Make a Wish foundation in Massachusetts with the m8 and 50mm pre-asph lux.
all shot between 640 and 1250 ISO with no problems.

So, I finally got mine. I was well prepared for all the weaknesses, thanks to this site and others, so I'm veery close to be a 100% satisfied so far, all things considered.

I started out digitally with a Nikon D70. That was ok, but when I bought my first rangefinder a couple of years ago, it just felt so much better. Lately, I just haven't been using my Nikon much because it's so freakin' big! The M6 is soooo much better in every way. Still, I've been missing the advantages of digital, and considering that there is only one RF possibility in that world, I finally went for it.

In a way I feel rather uncomfortable owning a camera that expensive. Like I don't deserve it, you know? But then again, I could take it as an oportunity to improve my photography, right? :-)

I'm home with my daughter a lot these days, so I don't get out to test it propperly that much, but then again, she's a pretty good motive too.

I do love the way I use the viewfinder ... and when out I take more a film approach, and not a machine gun approach. Today it worked better than I thought - sometimes you get only 1 shot anyway ...
1 shot at home, one at the track (lucky I guess ...) - and believe me the car was not standing still (est 120kph) ...

Oh, very very nice tones. I'm really having second thoughts about getting rid of the 35mm Biogon (for the second time). I'm guessing the third time will be the charm.

Thanks. It's 40mm Nokton. I think it's performing really well. I'm thinking about swapping it to a 35mm f1.2 though.

why buy an m8....well, as much as I hate to speak about the stealth of it...it is significantly less intimidating than a bulky DSLR with megazoom attached.

From a recent photoshoot.

what the m8 is meant to do.
ive been reading the threads discussing film vs: digi.
there is one thread asking how to make the m8 look like velvia, kodacrome etc. whats missing (for me) in those discussions is how to bring the best out of the m8.
this answers that question.
it isnt film its digital. this is where we are. leica gave us an amazing tool in a very raw form.
no it isnt a nikon d3, nor a canon top of the line dlsr.
its a leica rangefinder digital camera that takes leica glass. beautiful!
