I've spoken to him within the week.  You?

My opinion?  The M8 is a joke.  It was delivered to the marketplace as a
defective product. Ever since they have been making pathetic excuses ("it's
a feature, not a defect!") and offering half-hearted fixes.  I'm happy the
camera exists and that it works for the Kool- Aid drinkers and for those who
are willing to do all the fiddling required to make it work close to

For $5,000 I won't be a Leica beta tester.  Maybe they'll get it right the
next time (if there is a next time).  Otherwise film is readily available
and there's the EOS 5D.

Happy Easter.

You purport to speak for B.D.?


No one speaks for him but B.D.
