    Re: M8 what do you use

    If I go out during the day without exactly knowing what comes up for photographing, I grab the M8, the 24/2.8 and the 50-lux asph.
    That is a very versatile combo.

    In the evening and night, its a harder decision, since there is no 24/1.4.
    So I add the 35-lux; but then its quite often not wide enough, so I add the 28-cron, ending up with 28/2.0-35/1.4-50/1.4.

    Having a 28/1.4 or 24/1.4 would make life easier.

    Generally I find the wider lenses require more skills, since you have to manage much more visual information in the image. If you get it right, it can be very rewarding, particularly with people, since it puts the person(s) in a visual context and tells "more".

    Add a spare battery, a second 2GB card, expodisk; and it all fits into a really small Tenba shoulder bag, a bit tight, but nevertheless.

    This is THE advantage of the M8 system for me, compared to my 5D or the D3's etc.

    Hey, even if I did know what was coming I couldn't say. Leica just had me sign a brand new NDA two weeks ago. Let's just say that Photokina will be very interesting for Leica and I'm glad I'll be there first hand.

    I want my camera to get out of my way, and let me make all the decisions, without having to put much thought into "running" my camera. I fancy myself an artist, a photographer, not a technical camera jockey.
    Hi Chuck
    Well, first of all, I was really joking - a nod to impending imbecility!

    As to your second point - I couldn't agree more - I'm a bit of a gearhead when I get back home, but when I'm out taking pictures it's my eyes that count, anything which gets in the way spoils it, and you're right.

    Just this guy you know
