I like the magic of film, and the crop factor of most digital cameras only adds to that preference.

It's not the M8 being a worthless camera. It simply isn't worth its price tag presently.

Don't do it!
Or do you think a small sensor rangefinder can give you better images than a full frame film rangefinder?

I wouldn't do it if I were you. Digital rangefinders can't match the possibilities of film rangefinders yet. Even though they might be good cameras in their own right they are still way behind...

Yes, all that and much more.
Maybe things get better between 21 and 90 mm when the new M9 gets a full frame sensor.

I'd rather buy the new soon to be announced M9 because of its full-frame sensor. Or maybe I buy a cheap second hand old M8 instead, in spite of its narrow view sensor, that is.
