  • Conclusion: * Many of these 'pros and cons' are listed for those unfamiliar with rangefinders, many M8 buyers will already be aware of these and won't see them as significant disadvantages When I first got my hands on the M8 I have to admit it was my first experience of a rangefinder camera, I was also skeptical that there was still a place for such a significantly manually controlled camera in such an automatic world where every new camera removes one more layer of control from the...
  • Pros: Hand-built body speaks for itself, superb quality and finish, the best in the business, Totally new body built from the ground up to be a digital rangefinder, Years of heritage brought into the digital age without compromising Leica core values, Range of excellent (if amazingly expensive, and of course manual focus) lenses, Weighty body and fewer moving parts means slower hand-held shutter speeds *, Quiet and compact compared to a DSLR, smaller lenses (for equivalent ...
  • Cons: Infrared / Ultraviolet sensitivity means screw-on filters are required for all lenses in order to avoid the magenta color cast on man-made fabrics, Disappointing in-camera JPEG engine delivers sub-par results (jagged artifacts, moire, lower resolution) especially when you see what's available from RAW, Really need to shoot RAW to realize the potential of the camera, Rangefinder disadvantages: you don't look through the lens, no depth of field preview, framelines indic...

Leica M8

  • Summary: 承襲Leica M相機的傳統,M8的數位化相當成功。簡潔的機身設計,在保留手動操作之餘,卻也一點都不難上手。配上Leica鏡頭的成像品質極為優異,如果有「很多」閒錢(17.5萬不含鏡頭)的話,一定要買一台來玩玩。
  • Pros: 1. 高質感扎實機身; 2. 相容舊有M鏡頭; 3. 影像品質極佳。
  • Cons: 1. 價格極為昂貴; 2. 支援焦段較受限; 3. EXIF無法紀錄光圈。
