In February 2013 i bought a used Leica M8 from Interfoto, which was my first Leica. One and a half year later, it found itself replaced by a M240.
The Leica M8 is a digital rangefinder type camera. When first launched in September 2006, it was the first ever digital rangefinder camera. The sensor is a APS-H (1.33x crop) 10.3 megapixel Kodak KAF-10500 CCD sensor.
The camera was in no way perfect, having a smaller-than-fullframe sensor, and no IR filter, giving dark tones a purple tint. Leica supplied and still supply M8 owners with two IR filters, in whichever size they want when signing up on the Leica webpage.
As a "starter-Leica" this was the ideal camera for me. Being the only digital Leica i could afford at the time, and quite frankly, a pretty good camera.
This camera have been with me on travels abroad, in-country, slung over my shoulder while biking, on skiing trips, in weddings and even a funeral.
Even though i have a lot emotional attachment to the camera, it had to face it´s replacer midways in November 2015. I got a really good deal on a used M240, who just had gotten back from Wetzlar.
Im going to write a review of the M240 in the future, and maybe the M8 if i have the time for it before selling it.
Here are some images taken with the Leica M240 and a Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f1.1
