Trust us: It’ll make you a better photographer. The simple, intuitive M8.2 demands that
you actually turn the aperture ring and shutter-speed dial manually, not just fondle screens.
Luddite madness? Or a call for patience and thoughtfulness? The latter, no question. After days of shooting in Vancouver, we fell in love with the bright viewfinder and simple controls—and were equally smitten with the results. Thanks to the extremely high-end Leica glass, our images took on a 3-D quality that practically pops off the screen. Updates to the first iteration include an aperture priority, exposure compensation, cleaner high-ISO images, and a sapphire-crystal (not plastic) LCD. 10.3MP; leica-camera.us
