I really liked the EOS1n I owned for a while, and as a matter of fact, it
IS harder for focus manually than an R8, by a LONG shot. I've proven it to
myself in the past six months I've owned an R8. I would never go back, but
my company will be buying me an EOS1n with digital backs in the next 3 or 4
years, and I look forward to it...for work. But for personal photography
after that point, and for those times when digital just can't hack it, I'll
be grateful I have Leica glass to do the job really right.

I'm tired of all this Canon/Nikon/Contax stuff.

Let's argue about Summicron vs Summilux! :-) Just kidding.
