Peter, you've just inspired me to bring out my Xenon-Leitz Summarit 50 1.5. Compared to my ZM lenses and the CV 35 1.4., this lens does have lower contrast and has a pastel-y rendering to the look. I will also try out some of those things you do in post. Thanks for sharing

It is not often that I can be accused of inspiring someone. So will take this instance with pleasure.

I bought my well-loved M8.2 in the classifieds here about a year ago, and I still use it all the time. Someday it'll die, but so far it's going strong.

The Best!

This is my second trip though this thread. The M8 has to be one of the best digital Leicas ever made based on image quality. Progress is not always relative to quality. Who would have ever thought that the M8 with all it's foibles and limitations (by today's standards) is worthy of being a collector camera? I own an M10 and I am still VERY impressed with the M8 in black white and color.

I'll NEVER sell my M9 Monochrom!

I agree 100% with you, M8 is great camera in B&W and color.

When light is good, it can produce warm and rich
almost Kodachrome colors, like here:



I can't replicate these colors with my other digital cameras, even with my beloved Canon 5D.

This is a mixed bag of a few older shots from a few years ago taken with an M8 and various lenses (though often with a Ver 3 Summicron 50mm or a ver 4 Summicron 35mm). I have to admit the combo. pretty effortly produces some quite highly saturated images.
