I've been guilty of not following the M8 thread (it's hard to read 2,000
posts in two days). But I did take a look at this site you posted. I had
held off on buying the Epson digital rangefinder because it has the damned
metal vertical (cha-ching) shutter that seems prone to jamming (I've had 2
Bessas and 1 Zeiss Ikon go belly up due to the jammed shutter). Now that
I've seen a pelvic exam of the M8 next to the M7, I see that the M8 has a
vertical metal shutter (Auggghh!). Does anyone know if it is the same brand
as the jammomatic in Bessas and Zeiss Ikons?
