Leica M8 in 2020

Leica M8 in 2020 + Sample Photos

Here I share my latest YouTube video – the Leica M8 in 2020. I consider 10 points as to whether the near ‘vintage’ digital Leica M8 is still a viable option today. The M8 is the most affordable digital Leica M camera and also the first digital M, released in 2006. It has a 1.33x crop CCD sensor and a jaw dropping 10MP!

  1. Just watched your M8 in 2020 video. Great. Still love mine bought new in 2007. Mainly use my Cl now and have your Lightroom
    Presets.. Follow your work with the CL. My 83 year old eyes need the autofocus in some situations but love being able to use my
    M lenses and Nikon lenses manually
    Thanks for your work on both cameras.

      Thank you Dan! Talking of the CL, keep you eyes peeled if you have your YouTube subscription notifications turned on as a New CL video is coming out soon (currently being edited) 🙂

      Happy to hear you enjoy both cameras too. I hope i’m still enjoying my photos at 83yr! 🙂


  2. I enjoy your videos, some long winded but excellent anyway. I am looking to get my first Leica, digital preferred, and I am on a relatively low budget, around 2500 -3000 Cdn. Would like a 35mm. Also, what are your thoughts on the 7artisans 50mm, Leica mount? Thanks.

      Thanks Michael, This is quite a bit topic with not 1 answer that fits all. If you want to go through this in detail to make sure you get the right camera for you please message me via https://www.patreon.com/mrleicacom . I only have one 7A lens (see recent video) and i’m not sure it is a true example of their other lenses. I tend to prefer to buy classic lenses for often a similar cost. (See some of my lens videos). Thanks Matt
