Nice one! You may have convinced me. Better start saving and spending less
on other kit.  

Many thanks, Chris


Chris - it depends on what you expect from a digital M.  I had no  
heightened expectations.  I wanted something that would shoot when I  
asked it to, without asking why.  I wanted to produce low light  
shots, something to give great black and white - a camera to  
challenge me to take it further, not a camera which would argue and  
look like a tank.

I am very happy with the images mine produces, and I love working  
with it, that's the reason my photography is do diverse.  Who could  
ask for anything more.  Of course there are issues, but I don't dwell  
on them, they are part of the character of the camera.

The bottom line is, if you don't go out and shoot, you have nothing.   
The M8 encourages me to go and get it - in fact I would love to be  
working with it 24/7 - wonderful dream ......
