Lovely: my only comment with the M8 is that overexposure can spell death to 
a photo and if like me you don't chimp and check after each image I'd set 
the exposure to -2/3 at least: I run on -1 ev most of the time.

Folks, My first steps learning to manage exposure with a new M.

This is with the Summilux M 50 asph wide open. Now it has become a short 
portrait 67mm or so!



The subject is my beautiful daughter from the shadow side.  Just a quick 
casual shot obviously. 

I'm completely biased of course, but I love this one.

Just look what the lens does on the 10MP sensor!!

Now to get better at the exposure control without throwing away too much at 
the highlight end.


Cheers, Geoff
