Aram has hit on what I think may be the only thing which might,  
might, prevent me from buying an M8.

I hate dusty sensors.

The Olympus system has spoiled me in this regard. Never had a single  
blotch on any frame shot with this system. Now Pentax (K10), Sony,  
and Canon have all adopted dust reduction systems in their newest  
cameras, so this looks to become the new standard. And, of course,  
the Leica Digilux 3 has the same dust reduction feature, so that  
would always be an option.

But there's that fabulous M glass just sitting in my closet...
