I honestly don't have nice things to say about the M8 I actually had one, but returned it soon.
The M9 is a completely different story... but I'm still stuck there, so I can't say much about "all the stuff that followed"
Right, the M8 was APS-H.
Pity there aren't any more Leica M reviews. Not my side of the alley, not by a long shot, but these were enlightening to read, if only to see how a completely different lens design/usage ethos pans out in real world quality and test results. I remember the story behind their cessation though... pity also that some people need to take brand loyalty to ludicrous extremes. (reminds me of a guy in CR forum recently that went totally ballistic trash talking Sigma and Tamron lenses - to an extrent I haven't really seen for years and years, unless of course Ken Rockwell is brought into the discussion, which I'd rather avoid ).
