".. you were so pissed off to wait for your M8 that you indulged on a M7 or what??.."
no, not exactly, lol! i switched my 5d to an M7 for a while from a friend of mine before m8 comes.. i am getting used to it.
looks like M8 has still many bugs for the time being, rather disappointing! was not a great start for Leica this year i guess.. hope 2007 will be better for them. Solms offers a %30 discount for Leica M lenses for every m8 purchasers nowadays if M8 is bought before the new year due to this delay..looks very seductive! ;) (i still do have an eye on a 24 elmarit).
thanks for the critic, merry Xmas to you and your family too! :) cheers.
