Not trying to sound like a dickhole here, but I'm curious to know what Nikon lens or lenses you used. Yes, of course the Leica will be sharp, but I know some of my prime Nikon lenses give Leica a run. I'm forever spoiled by the D3, 2500iso is the new 400iso. And the reason why I can't stand the M8's high iso limits.
