    Peter, I honestly hope this is not another lie or a trick! 😉

    If I can trust my eyes and your words: welcome back to CCD. 🙂

    When I saw your latest images my thoughts were: film really rules and has a special grace, organic “transitions” etc…CMOS and especially the Nikon D 810 is a powerful tool and with all the possibilities with tele and AF in sports( your children) its authority/right…as often mentioned, the procedure with film( sorry dear purists!) is for me too inconvenient and the somehow realistic-down-to-earth-look( sorry dear CMOS-lovers!) of the CMOS-sensor sometimes “frightens” me and this is “my happy medium”: I still love the unique( and I know a little “handicaped”- ISO etc.) look of CCD of the M8 and M9 ..long live rock´n ccd! Sir Peter, welcome back to the home of magic ( blink my eyes) and we are looking forward what this M8 will create in your hands and our hearts. 🙂

    My friend Peter, thank you for this good news- you made my/our day. Period!

    Maybe one day Leica will realize they made a good camera. Then the prodigal son will be at home again.

    What, no M9?!? 😉

    The M8 is a wonderful camera, it also did not have the sensor issue, a IR filter solved the other problem. Enjoy.

    The M8 is better than ever, using M8RAW2DNG. The CCD in the M8 has higher dynamic range than that in the M9, an extra 3dB. The 1/8000th top shutter speed is enough reason to hold onto one after getting the M9 and M Monochrom.
