M 8u was the first upgraded M 8 with frame lines and shutter changes, I believe. I think I've heard it referred to as actually an M 8.1 - I can't remember if there was anything else that was modified. The following upgraded M 8.2 had the display changes to a harder scratch resistant crystal and the shutter speed reduced to 1/4000 and a Vulcanite covering.

There are two official and one "unofficial" M8 bodies... The official ones are the M8 and M8.2. In between is what some like to call the M8u - just to distinguish it. You know how it is with Leica stuff and names... :P

Basically, the M8u is an upgraded M8 with one or more features from the M8.2. The big ones are:

  • Updated framelines (more accurate, tuned from .7m to 2m)
  • Upgraded shutter (no 1/8000s, quieter)
  • Sapphire LCD cover glass

There are other differences between the M8 and M8.2 that weren't available as options. Things like the black dot, new skin, etc.
