This thread and others here has inspired me to pick up an M8 in the classifieds! My first digital M. I can't wait 'til it gets here. Thanks all for posting, hopefully I'll have something to share soon.

Thanks, Helen. I see you have left the m8 tribe, so one in, one out! Is the m8 the gateway drug to a full frame addiction?

Two test shots using a summicron 50. DNGs pretty much as they came into LR, with the first one converted to B&W.

Damn, looks like it. I'll have to figure out how to clean it l suppose. Since I shoot most people / travel with lots going on it has not popped up before. The m8 is new to me. Will give it a go wit a rocket blower first.

Who visitis Photokina, will be able to see this image at the Voigtländer booth - printed 3m wide, shot with an M8.2 at ISO 640 and the VM Ultron 21mm.
I thought I may need to use a MF film image for this print size, but the M8.2 image held up well.

Right on. Little appreciated sensor loupe and lens pen.

I will resort to wet clean, but it is a last step after all else fails.

It's all in the photoshop. I use an old version of camera raw as well. (Cs6). The secret though lies in the tone sliders. It's very easy to see the basic controls tab and "process" with just those, but using the tone tab you can bump your shadow detail and pull back your highlights to give a more "silvery" look.

This is just what I do for taste. When I process my bw scans it's a similar procedure so I know what I'm looking for tone wise.

I purchased my first Leica, an M8, earlier this month along with a 35mm Voigtlander Color Skopar. It's been a great camera so far, and I look forward to using it further in the future! Here are a early few snaps from walking around.
