Leica M8

What a brilliant camera the Leica M8 is. Had a quick play around with it today and it is really quite superb. Such a nice change from my usual point and shoot, but kind of tricky to use. It is also hard to get people to stay still for long enough for you get them in focus and sort out the aperture settings! Anyway, few of the test shots below.

    Well its a proper camera made by one of the most legendary camera makers in modern history, so it is surely likely to be better than any point and shoot…!?
    Did you buy it? I think the M9 is much better as its full frame but its damn expensive…

    No, I didnt buy it, its mega expensive. Someone at work has it. If you have the time to really set up and compose the photo, which I usually dont as most the time im shooting motion stuff, it is really superb.
