Yes, an M8 is the logical guess, being when doing small format in
film (the majority of his work is 35mm b&w) work he used Leica
rangefinders and slrs.

In a documentary about him that I watched, he told about his equipment quite a bit and he used three Leica R6 (that is the mechanical R body) with 24, 35 and 60 macro lenses, and he had a 180mm close, without body. He did NOT use the M-system. (only for Leica promotional activities!)

Some other poster made a comment about money, but this guy quit from Magnum because they took a 50% cut of his gallery-sales as well (besides publications and such) which meant a 50% cut of 2 million dollars. (annually, of course)
