Re: m6

Are you trying to figure out how long you have to wait to get a Leica?
I did a calculation for you: 8.33 years considering 50 bucks / months ;o).

Ooops sorry I messed up 2 different topics ;o))

Re: m6
I don't know who said that mastery of technique is achieved when you can't see it anymore. Maybe it's me after all...;-)

Listen guys, my only grip with Maciej is that his business card does not say singly "freelance photo-journalist" yet, but, and I know you are all good friends, we can judge him by his results, and not nitpick his words. This "it's the photographer, not the equipment" is getting a bit old and trite. And if someone does not need that lecture, it's Maciej. He is a photographer, period, with a freakin' day job. That's his problem! :-)

Re: m6
Folowing this thread, I checked some threads about the M8 in other forums, and I remember seeing 5000 pounds, around 6500$.

It's making shutter noise too. Isn't it where Leica was coming in handy for street photography?

PS: My friend Tom, yes Alimo, has told me you pay a lot for the name when you buy a Leica.

First review
Here's a review of the <a href="">M8 vs EOS 5D</a>. Interesting. I wonder whether using the 100mm Macro would have made any difference? I know mine is noticeably sharper than my 24-105...

High ISO noise levels don't look good on the Leica though unfortunately. Also wonder whether it should have had an articulated screen to make waist level shooting my WYSIWYG ;)

I'm also curious about what software was used to convert the images - as the 5D wall shot looks fractionally oversharpened. Anyway, carry on!

Re: Leica M8 Digital SLR
a technical point (out of curiosity):

if there is a 1.3 crop factor on new M8, can we apply (the focusing) the Hyperfocal distances in the same way on a lens as it was written, or does it make a difference? (i mean- 24 Elmarit becomes 31 mm. for instance, so will hyperfocal marks on the lens be used in the same way?.. never thought of this before so just wondered..

Re: Leica M8 Digital SLR
Well if you keep shooting in near darkness in that Moti-Bahgh hangout of yours, my dear Evren, who the hell cares about hyperfocal distance? You'll be, as usual flying by the seat of your pants hoping the lens doesn't let you down wide open? Now am I right or what ;o)))?
