My experience with the DMR is much like Geoff's with the M8.  I compared my 
last roll of K25 with the DMR at ISO400 and even neglecting the 4 stops 
faster shutter speeds the DMR whomped K25: better image detail, color 
quality, dynamic range.  Plus the other stuff Geoff mentioned.  As it turned 
out I was glad I had no more K25.  The biggest drawback of the DMR is that I 
can't put it on the SL.
