Good on you Bill...see what a throbbing foot and generous lashings of Codeine can do for you! :wink: Now onto the white orbs of the X10 :laugh1:

it happens in natural light as well - it is well known but only happens now and again - only the second time since I bought the camera - two years ago - I think

you want to get a Sigma DP, Bill, then you can have green pictures all the time
...or get yourself the original DP1. Then you can have this, and as a bonus for early adopters, a free set of meshed red orbs whenever you point the lens at light...

I've never had this anomaly on a Leica. I think bright/stray light that hits the calibration portion of the CCD causes the problem? I read that somewhere.

ah in that case I haven't seen the green line yet on my Leica.
I do not think that the more wealthier members of the Leica Society, (i.e. those with M9s and Summilux), have these "optional" factory fitted extras

and maybe your M8 was not fitted with these options

Maybe the wealthier members of the Leica society get beautiful bright golden sun-flare-like lines in their photos.

The rest of us get cheap gangrene green, rashy red, and darker-than-the-depths-of-hell dark lines instead.

but surely you have the "coffee cup" stain on your LCD - that's a "must have" - mine appeared after 6 months and up to that time I really felt left out
