Tat's a bit of camera porn, right there. I love it,
The M8 is my first Leica and my first RF. When I got out of military service back in 1980, I choosed between a Leica and a Nikon F. It was for my first "civilian salary. I took the "F", but if I had only known then what I know now... I would have gotten the Leica...
BTW I just saw an ad for an M6 and one for an M2. You guys have oceans of expereince. Witch one should I choose?

Happy weekend from a cold and rainy Stockholm.

If you like your experience with built in meters, the M6 is the way to go unless you want to cary around an external meter or use the sunny 16 rule. I love my M2 and M3 (perfect for simplifying the shooting experience) when I have the time to meter or if I don't care about exposures being slightly off occasionally. Another thing to consider are frame lines. The M2 only has 35mm, 50mm, and 90mm; if you are a 28mm, 75mm or 135mm shooter then the M2 won't work well for you. In the end they're both great cameras and you can't go wrong with either one.

Here's my M2:

This thing is really taking a long time to brass!! (about 80 rolls and counting) :(

That M7 is just gorgeous. Black paint, M3 controls, Sonnar...
