The Online Photographer have posted a two part review of the new 10 megapixel Leica M8 Digital Rangefinder, Part One focuses on the Pros, and Part Two, the cons. The M8 is available in Black or Black and Silver, the Leica M8 is Leica’s first digital rangefinder. It features a 2.5″ screen, and has a number of lenses and accessories available for it.
“The main felicity of an M camera is the way it rides shotgun, always there, always on the alert, always ready to go. The M8 is not really different, so long as you have charge in the battery and space on the card. Whereas most cameras want to make it possible to do more and more until you can do an infinite number of things, an M camera doesn’t let you do a lot. It pares away what isn’t really needed and just leaves what is. The M8’s designers respected this principle.”
