IMHO - The R8 is the most comfortable, well balanced SLR I have
ever owned - including: Leica R3, Alpa, Olympus, Pentax, Nikon F
through N90s, Cannon, 

Like the M cameras the R8 feels and operates like a synergistic
extension of my hand. Everything is exactly where it should be.
The ability to read strobes in F mode is a dream come true. The M
mode is wonderful use when carrying both M6 and R8. If you use
and R8 I can't imagine that you would not fall in love within
days. When I had R3's I could not bring my self to dump the Nikon
stuff. When I got the R8 - I had no problem dumping the Nikons
because they never came out of the bag.
