The Leica M 8.2 is now my first camera and I am very happy with the camera. Ease of use is very simple and holding this great piece of camera in my hands I just amazing. The look of the pictures is less digital than that of the GXR M-mount. Per pixel sharpness is the best I have seen today even better than my old Canon 5D. In combination with my Elmarit 28 2.8 asph the sharpness is insane - I have never seen such a detail in 10 mpix sensor. My digital workflow is first importing the DNG with RPP and the importing the picture in Lightroom for some fine tuning. I strongly can recommend RPP for the M8 because AWB is perfect and colors are very fine with the K64 preset. My second lens is the Summicron 50 f2 V5. My Backup cameras are the Ricoh GXR with m-mount for high iso pictrues and the M6 classic for film. So all in all I am very happy with my actual gear and as a former Fuji X100 user I have never missed this camera but it also was a great tool. 

Do you still think that an M8 is a good investment? What about the fact that the lcd can not be replaced any more?

Thanks, D
