That's what a Leica Rep told me about the R8, but you should look at the 
latestest Popular Photography, Keppler's column, for an interesting test of 
MLU v non-MLU, using a Nikon F5 -- up to 157% higher lines-per-millimeter 
resolution, and improvemnt came throughout the 1/60-1/8 range tested.  
Keppler said  he was so surprised he intends to run more tests.
