Thanks to everyone for the comments. I think I am not delusional - I realize that M8 is 6 year old camera and technology has advanced, at the same time I had great experience using Nikon D2H well after I switched to D700; and I expect even more from Leica.

My main motivation for getting M8 is use of M-mount lenses. Though I love my current travel camera - Fuji X-E1 - but using it with M lenses is a subpar experience. I enjoy being in control of the camera Leica seems like a comfortable camera for that. This is a hobby for me, and the way I interact with a camera contributes a lot to my pleasure of using it.

I purchased an M8 (with upgraded shutter and frame-lines), should have it in few days.
