Francesco, >>the R8 is the best SLR I have ever used<< Viewfinder clarity ( uniform ground glass screen ), almost non-existent mirror vibration, & a judicious mass promotes spontaneous photography. In working a Victorian festival, with my R8s ( 35 f2 & 80 f1.4 ); a newspaper pro ( with Nikons ) saw my gear and asked to look through my Leicas. His quote: "My God, what a brilliant & uncluttered view. What an aid to composition". & now we have camera bodies with viewfinders that embody the zenith of computer technology..........40-50 focusing points! Heaven forbid that a photographer should rely upon their visual "sense" (&>) ! Tom D.
