I like the picture, however.  Looks like Ralph finds gripping this  
camera about as comfortable as holding a turd.

At least Ralphie Boy had the good sense to put an angled rewind crank  
on that garish monstrosity.  Tear the red wetsuit off it and it would  
be usable piece -- for about $2,000 new.

Seeing this makes me fear for the usefulness of the M8.  It may take  
a great mental leap to conclude that it's a worthwhile tool for a  
working photographer, particularly for $5,000.

C'mon, Zeiss, where's the real digital rangefinder we're dreaming of?
