Equipment: Bruno Stevens tests the Leica M8

| | Comments (1)

There's a more positive review of the Leica M8 by photojournalist Bruno Stevens:

Not withstanding all its technical qualities, the best point of the M8 is that it is a true M Leica. The ability to shoot discreetly in a crowd, to be inconspicuous on a street, and finally to point a small innocent-looking camera in the face of the people you photograph instead of a big black brick, the ability to see 'over' the frames of your pictures in the clear viewfinder, the incredibly small size and weight of a system such as described above (just ONE spare lens for four focal lengths) makes the M8 an absolute winner in my view.

The difference I think is that Stevens mostly worked in B&W which mitigates the most serious flaws that Kamber raised.


hi there i recently bought an asahi pentax spotmatic sp 2 from a flea market and it needs quite major repairing from what i see.
i looked online and found your site and i was wondering, how much did you repair cost? and what how good is this camera and what does it come close to (in the sense of other cameras)
