  • Summary: I have Leica M cameras (M5, M6ttl, and M7) that were sitting in my closet unused since I had decided to make the switch to digital. Recently, I was debating which camera to upgrade to. Was it to be the new Nikon D7000 (but I have the D300) or the Canon 5dMarkII.
  • Pros: Great build quality, Can use most Leica lenses, Forces you to think about the picture being taken., Pleasure to use in the field, Great control placement, Simple but effect menu structure
  • Cons: Cost, 1.3 form factor, Snapshot mode that is virtually useless in practice, No recent firmware updates since 2.005 (this needs a firmware update)

  • Summary: You're all probably are aware of this cameras week points and the controversies surrounding it. A digital Leica M camera in itself is a controversy! As an avid M6 user who prints and develops his own B&W and C41 film, choosing to try the M8 seemed counter intuitive in some ways.
  • Pros: M camera, Sensor, Fun to use, Flexible, Did I say it's an M camera!?, Upgradeable, It's a Leica
  • Cons: IR filter issue - solvable, Coding issue - solvable, Change in feel from film M, Price

  • Summary: I've spent most of the past year photographing in Iraq with an M8. I'm a long-time Leica user but I'm not a fan of the M8. It has locked up on me repeatedly and has terrible low-light capability.
  • Pros: Small, and quiet
  • Cons: Low light capabilities, poorly laid out controls, expensive, no fast wide angle lenses, short buffer
