Leica for Infra Red photography?
5 months ago

Looking for a compact camera that is sensitive to IR for doing B/W infra red photography. Are any of the Leica rangefinders suitable for this? Someone told me the M8 doesn't have an IR cut off filter, is this correct and if so has anyone had any experience of using the M8 for IR photography?
