"Well, boys, we got three engines out, we got more holes in us than a horse trader's mule, the radio's gone and we're leakin' fuel, and if we was flying any lower, why we'd need sleigh bells on this thing. But we got one little budge on them Rooskies, at this height, why, they might harpoon us but they dang sure ain't gonna spot us on no radar screen!"

Here is the latest M8 review making waves on camera forums. The reviewer, a freelance NY Times photographer, tested the camera in Iraq.

Of course the gasbags slammed him for publishing his observations.

This is yet another M8 review. Bill Pierce is a photojournalist: http://www.digitaljournalist.org/iss...uts-bolts.html

Here is an excerpt: "Kamber mentions that he is on his third M8. Me, too. As a consequence, I don't trust my M8, even though the third one has worked flawlessly for over a year. There will come a time when I will go out with only an M8, but, for now, the DSLRs are never far behind."

And here's what has been happening at Leica with comments from B&H at the bottom.

Late to Digital, Leica Slow to Refocus - WSJ.com

I wonder if Best Buy will take Mr Lee back.
