Leica M8 review & the miracles of modern technology

Posted in Photoblog, Photography by Rollfilm on September 19, 2006

Thanks to Chris Weeks recent blog entry i came along something very interesting which is (to a certain degree) funny as well. Erwin Puts wrote an indepth-review about the new digital Leica M8 and posted some test photos along with it. It seems that pictures taken with the M8 are still under an embargo and not allowed to be published yet, which can be understood from a certain point of view. Due to the wonders of modern technology and google’s cache system the site, though the photos have been removed when you follow the original link , can still be seen in its complete glory.

Ironic, isnt it? Well, modern times!

    Ich will es mir ja kaum eingestehen, aber die M8 sieht höllisch sexy aus und scheint auch ein verwendbares Werkzeug zu sein. Freut mich sehr (für Leica).

    I am glad that Leica waited until the resolution was getting good enough at 10Mp to peserve their good name gained with excellent lenses. A risky strategy but unavoidable for a film camera specialist with no digital history. Prototypes of new cars, computers and alpha and beta release software all have problems so a new M8 should be no different. We all wait to see the final production version.
