Henning has tried out all the lenses he has, and that is quite a few including all the wide Voitinas, and they all work well on the M8; much better than they work on the RD1. So I wouldn't worry about coding issues. There are other issues mind you; some cost related. I was doing some casual shooting at a friend's wedding last night. I had three bodies going. I suppose I could have got by with two but that is still a $10K investment. That is a long cool drink of water by any measure. Also 90% of my shooting is with reversal. I really, really like the projected slide. I would have to sort that end of the equation too. The other significant issue is the lack of fast wides. I would need a 28/1.4 no ifs and or buts about it. The ability to free up one's shooting cannot be overstated. I think I will end up with a Leica M digital but not right away.
