As a former US Marine Photojournalist I really appreciated this  

He's spot on; when you're working "in country", you just don;t need  
complications and failure.  The total environment is massively  

When Leica get this, and produces a Digital M that even half-way  
approaches the reliability of the film M's, I'll probably invest in one.

I thinl that should be labeled M8 and any fast action shooting... I  
agree with the framelines (they are a joke), the buffer (ridiculous),  
the depth of field (annoying)... I haven't had the other problems -  
except maybe for the filters (they do scratch easily when in dry,  
sandy and windy environment). The high ISO noise is a pita, but 160 or  
320 underexposed by 2 stops does the trick imho...

All the best from the south of France!
