Leica M8 Price

Digital Leica M cameras always looked out of my reach when I used to use a Nikon DSLR.  Just too expensive.  A new digital Leica camera cost is still is crazy expensive for the majority of the population (including myself!).  The good news is as time passes the older Leica M bodies become cheaper and more affordable.  A Leica M8 price is now less than many used DSLR cameras.  The M8 still offers the Leica quality and you can use your Leica film camera lenses on it.  I still enjoy Leica M8  wedding photography today and clients seems to love the look (see my Leica Wedding blog posts).

  1. Beautiful.
    All of them, specially that one with the “odd” focus… I don’t see any calibration lack though, just a very shallow depth of field. Nice

  2. Congrats on the post, Matt. You deserve every recognition and I hope your business is doing exceedingly well – in terms of the type of work you’re doing and the rewards you secure.
