I'm really torn by the M8. On the one hand, I love using it. On the other hand, Leica's proposed fix for the magenta issue leaves a lot to be desired. I told my dealer I was waiting until the complete official word from Leica came down. Now that that has become clear, and it seems as if the full scope of the fix will be filters, I'm inclined to return it. And yet I love using it. Then again, I have a film M too...
I reiterate I am a big Leica fan but i believe in calling a spade a spade or a lemon a lemon. Nowhere did I ever hear Leitz claiming their cameras were superior b/w picture takers...they would be laughed at.
There are digital cameras a fraction of the depth and price that have no filtration problems.
UV filters are for a specific purpose but many photographers keep then on for lens protection.
No filters were made to cover up design faults. I think it is shameful to take the easy option for such a revered brand name and such an expensive piece of equipment.
