Are there any regular users that post with the M8 still? I was browsing the flickr pool the other night and saw qualities I'd previously missed when looking before (I think I'd previously just seen poor user control / exposure). The skin tones on some colour images seemed wonderful, I'm not sure if there was any processing/filtering involved though. But certainly makes me re-think it as a 'cheap-casual-cam'... around 950-1050 on ebayUK!

The M8 is certainly a great camera with excellent IQ at base iso, some even believe it to be better than the M9 and M10, but you have to remember that you will need IR-cut filters on all lenses, and that any iso above 320 is only for special effects

I'm one of those. How I love the M9, the output of the M8 on ISO 160 is still my favorite.
Its like u had to do nothing in post.
Also black and white it was really awesome.

Nevertheless, full frame is quite nice to have so I'm still happy with the switch to the M9.

I sold my M8 a year ago for 1500 euro. If they reach 1000 euro or below I might consider one.

I have used the M8 for the past two years and really enjoyed it. As Robert mentioned, at base ISO it is a superb performer. Things quickly fall apart when you move into higher ISO's though. AWB and JPG output (with UV/IR filters) was really quite accurate but skin tones (in bright light) can become slightly reddish and "rough" at times. Another thing to note is that the shutter is very loud. Kinda sounds like my old Mamiya 645 Pro-TL with that huge mirror flapping around. I personally loved using my M8 and for the current price you really can't go wrong. I would have sold you mine but it sold last night....

Thanks for the comments, Edward, Gary, Ron, Michael, Ryan!

Gary, those M240 and 21SEM shots looks excellent! I agree, live view is useful. Your 35Cron shots seems to have a slight magenta cast on the shadows but otherwise excellent shots with the 35Cron and 50Cron! I haven't really tried ISO3200 but ISO1600 seems really useable.

Ron, you have what is known as Leica fever and withdrawal symptoms I have it sometimes too.

Michael, the ZM21 shot looks sharp and crisp. Love the color contrast on the first 50Cron shot of your daughter. The first two 35Cron shots are superb! Very nice light on the last shot of your son.

Allen, absolutely love the 3rd shot at the stairs on p681!

David (lenticular), those M8 shots and colors look excellent!

Joakim, nice shot with the 35Lux. M9 still under repair? Ask for a M240 loaner camera?

Ryan, excellent shot of your son with the 35Cron. Hope your M240 arrives soon!

Edward, excellent shot with the ZM35/2.

-------
Really like my 21Ultron and have been shooting only at f/1.8 . Seems like a good value and still can't believe there's no color cast on M240. Its not super sharp as Leica ASPH lenses, but still sharp enough wide open and provides enough background separation. I really like the way it draws, somewhat classical looking and smooth but still has a bit of bite wide open. Plus if you shoot up close at MFD 0.5, DOF is only 1 inch

Joe, great photos with the 21 Ultron. I'm getting quite interested in that lens, it seems to render very nicely and a fast wide wouldn't be bad. I'm not a wine lover but I appreciate the photo

Joe, I love the shot of your son taking picture. I see the same backhoe, wood railroad, and Eames chair at my home I wonder other than these and Leica rangefinder, what else we are in common. I really like that 21mm VC as well, especially after see Ron's review. The key is have decent copy. Make sure you test it at infinity and check all corner

I send off my M9 and 50lux ASPH today to NJ, I will see what they say about my 50lux. I instruct them to give me a quote for cosmetic fixing.

So no more M for at least two month I think.

Here are few images took during Disney weekend two weeks ago.

Joe - really nice results from that 21 Ultron! Yes, some of my images have a slight color cast. As you know, the WB rendering is a bit off with the M240 and hopefully the next firmware update will fix it.
Michael - It will be a long wait for you to get your lux back. At least you have all that R glass to play with on your Nikon!

A few more with M240 and a walkabout downtown at lunch. I tried out the CV15 and forgot how wiiiiide 15 is on full frame. Major distortion and ton's of magenta color shift on the edges. I tried out Cornerfix for the first time and got it fairly close....

Nice shots Gary. Do you have the 15 coded or set up in the body?

Cal - No, I did not set up a lens profile in camera for the CV15. Not sure which one I would choose. Would this choice have an effect on the color shift or just vignetting?

Ryan - I love that last shot of your son. Very funny.

I used to suscribe the Sean Reid's site and I know he tests different codes. I'm pretty sure the CV15 was best coded as a Tri-Elmar @ 16mm, but I'm not sure how effective the coding is. (Tri -Elmar is 010000, so only one black mark should do the trick)

I believe so, but it's been a while since I've been a subscriber so my memory might be faulty.

Thanks Joakim, Michael, Gary, Ryan

Michael, nice shot of your son with the 50Lux. I like the pose on the #1 35CronV1 shot, makes it look really artsy. I would really like to get my hands on a Eames lounge chair, but probably have to wait till I get over Leica fever Hope your M9 and 50Lux returns soon. Another thing we have in common - I also have to send something to Leica NJ this week and its brand new Maybe our cameras will end up on a date over there?

Gary, those CV15 and 21SEM shots are excellent. #3 is my favorite from this set. Good to know about the CV15 color cast, thanks.

Ryan, both those 35Cron and 21Lux shots are excellent. Looks like he's having fun, won't be long till you can share your gear with him too

Allen, nice environmental portrait!

-----
Probably my last post with the M240 for sometime. No, I'm not selling it. Got an email this morning from Solms that my camera serial # is affected by the strap lug fiasco and has to go back to NJ as a precaution.

90 Tele-E. #1,3 & 4 @ f/2.8. LR 4 seems to be picking an aperture one stop down on many shots. I really like the tilt EVF for these type of shots where I can preview focus & DOF and use the histogram to meter.
