Hi Lluis,

I like your approach.  You are looking at all of the positive things that 
the M8 brings to you, while some seem to always look for all of the little 
problems.  The filters may be an improvement in some cases, but the camera 
and lens collection that you have will keep you busy just learning all of 
the things that can be done successfully.  As I understand it, coding is 
primarily important only with wide angle lenses.  Filters can be added
