Yes I do - really like it - I enjoy using it etc., etc., - I don't want to go on "singing it's praises" as if I do it will probably decide to have "one of it's quirks" tomorrow. If I only had to have one camera it would be a Leica RF digital - simple as that - I am happy with the M8, (and the cost - I bought it used, vgc, 9 months old with less than 5,000 actuations, for less than Euros 1600) - I like (all) RF glass, everything about, IQ, build quality, feel, etc, etc - Leica stuff is expensive, but very good and "an investment" - Zeiss costs less but is great and CV is very good and fantastic value for money price/performance wise).Bill, congrats on your new lens. Do you still have your M8 ? Issues on dust solved ?
Mission accomplished with a twist. I got lucky and found a deal on the zoom lens that I really wanted - a Carl Zeiss 16-80mm f3.5-f4.5 lens that is very well regarded. A Mac will have to wait until 2012 as I've gone over budget alreadySo for 2011, I think I only have one lens in mind which is a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 to replace the A-mount kit lens. The other purchase I keep delaying is a Mac ... Deirdre's "one of us, one of us" chant keeps ringing in my head
