Andrew Duncan from the website Buy and Shoot put the Leica M8 under the spotlight recently and lets see what was the verdict on this old favorite. The first thing that stands out is the under-stated style of the M8, which has an old school charm to it.
On reviewing the M8, Duncan was impressed by the image quality , its quick start up and non-existent shutter lag. However the M8 is ideal for the pro photographer and first time SLR shooters may find it difficult to use.
"The Leica M8 is a precision photographic tool that provides professional results. SLR shooters may take a little while getting accustom to shooting with a range finder. However, the Leica M-series camera is very easy to use. Experienced photographers will have no problem getting the most from the M8. In fact the only problem you are going to have is deciding if you want the silver or black model."
