Hey everyone, my first post on this very nice forum. I'm not sure how I ended up here, but I'm delighted to discover there's a fair amount of experience with the M8 present.
Without too many tedious details, I'm returning to photography after a 20 year layoff. As a student in the 70s, I was fortunate to have carried an M3 with 35, 50, and 90 lenses. The sad thing is, I wasn't all that excited about it then since my real passion was 4x5. Fast forward to the present and I decided last year to jump into the digital world and bought a Nikon D2xs with 12-24, 55-70, and 70-200.
It's been a fun learning and re-learning experience. The thing I am liking least however, is the fact that it's pretty hard to blend in when you're carrying the mass of a camera and lens combo like the D2xs. Sometimes it's not an issue, but there are enough times that it is.
So... I've been considering the M8 as an additional setup. But after scanning a bunch of the threads here and reviews elsewhere, I'm a bit overwhelmed. Is there a thread or threads here that might have a listing of a decent "kit" for the M8? Are there lenses for the M8 that offer different quality and price point options? What about the issues of color cast and banding? Have they been resolved?
Hope you don't mind me asking, but this group more than any other I've found seems to have a great deal of real-world M8 experience. Thanks in advance for your response and thanks to the hosts for the opportunity to ask.
