I finally got disgusted... My M8 never did produce what I thought of as
really sharply focused images.  Focus at 15 feet, use a tripod, at 1/25
second, of a fence, at F11 , using the WATE set at 16mm SHOULD produce some
area of the image that is really tack sharp.  Not mine.... NOTHING was in
focus.  Sharp focus just did not exist.  A friends' M9 did produce sharp
images using the same lenses... so it is the camera, not the lenses.

No, it is NOT a back focus issue ( which produces a really  a sharp image
area, just not where you think it should be); nor does it need a RF

So back it went today.... 

Never had this problem with a film camera.. and BTW, the lenses I tried all
produce really sharp images on film..
