Greetings all.

The M8 vigil ended about 3 weeks ago. The camera with a brand new  
Summicron 2/28 mm lens arrived Feb 27 and I have been on the learning  
curve ever since, as I expect to be for a lifetime to come.

I love the camera and have had no problems with batteries, SD cards  
or the like. The selector switch does not seem loose, but it does  
somehow find its way to unexpected positions. It is, of course,  
heavier than the little Sony I just passed on to my wife, but this  
actually seems helpful. I got a shot of Terry, hand-held at 1/15th,  
unheard of with any former camera.

Anyhow, there are a few early efforts up for your critical review.
