Excerpt: Perhaps no other camera brand has the same rich heritage as Leica, and the M8.2 can trace its roots back to the first 35mm film models. Like the M8 before it, the updated M8.2 is based on the legendary 35mm coupled rangefinder M range, but due to a number of technical challenges, the digital M8.2 is not a 35mm full-frame camera. Instead, it's built around a Kodak APS-H (27 x 18mm) 10.3-megapixel sensor, with a crop factor of 1.33x.
Excerpt: Like the M-series 35mm coupled rangefinder cameras before it, the M8 and M8.2 share a very similar and not unattractive design that goes back to the iconic M3 from the 1950's. Measuring 139mm (w) x 80mm (h) x 37mm (d) and weighing around 600g with battery and SD (HC) card, the M8.2 is similar in size and weight to the current 35mm aperture priority M7, and manual mechanical MP. For all that, it still looks much chunkier than those models.
Excerpt: La Leica M8.2 è una fotocamera digitale dedicata soprattutto alla fotografia da reportage e si va ad aggiungere al modello Leica M8 , tuttora in commercio, rispetto alla quale presenta una aggiunta e non una sostituzione. Si tratta, quindi, di una fotocamera di qualità professionale e di elevata qualità, grazie agli obiettivi Leica M e al telemetro Leica.
