    My leica digital is the New CL. It uses film and a collapsible summicron. I think they discontinued this camera because it might outsell the M8. The trouble is, There's no USB and the screen on the back stays black. The rangefinder isn't as good, but it's lighter and people don't say it's old school. Finally I'm up to date.

    Great choice..... I love the MP.... I think you can only love a film camera... a digital is something you own for a while before it becomes obsolete.

    Rob, do you sell the M8 in your shop? I wonder how it's doing up there versus, say, the ZI.

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    Hi Keith,
    No I don't sell the Leica line-up.... from most reports the M8 has been a good seller. Although I've only played with the camera a couple times I did like it... but the thing I like the best is how it's kept the interest of rangefinder cameras high... and is responsible for many shooters becoming interested in the cameras... film and digi.

    Not to threadjack, but if anyone here would know maybe you guys would --

    I've been having Leica Lust for a while now. I don't care much about a meter (my sekonic L-308s is frighteningly accurate), but I've heard horror stories about loading III series Leicas (which I could go for since I have a couple of tack-sharp russian lenses with which Ive been suffering Fed horrors) and heard that M3s and M4's aren't much easier.

    Suggestions? Any shortcuts to loading a III? I love rangefinders (My Kiev 4 with its Sonnar clone is just awesome) but would really love the bulletproof reliability and fit/finish of a Leica.

    Zenrhino, consider a Zeiss Ikon.

    I think you may be quite happy with a Voightlander Bessa R-2.
